Daily News - 16th February 2012 - Assassin's Creed 3 Confirmed, Civ V DLC, The Walking Dead and Far Cry 3's Release Date

So basically something for everyone!

Assassin's Creed 3 Is A Thing That's Happening

Now I make no secret of how much I hate Assassin's Creed games, but the fact remains that they make money, and so I'm forced to take notice of them every year. What makes matters worse is when they release games that feature similar character designs and locations (seeing screenshots of Assassin's Crfeed 2, Brotherhood and Revelations back-to-back-to-back has made me die a slow death inside) so I am atleast vaguely interested to hear today that Assassin's Creed 3 will feature a brand new assassin character and location, which, while a small victory for my ever-decreasing sanity, is probably big news for everyone but me in the world. Oh, and the final insult? They have the release date down as October 30th, otherwise known as: My birthday. It's like they WANT me to hate them.

"Can you believe how much our games suck?" "I know, right!"

Gods And Kings Expansion For Civ V Brings Back Old Civ Conventions

Civilization V was awesome, and still is, but I've had little reason to play the game in a long while. That will all change when the Gods And Kings expansion launches in Spring, and brings with it a pair of classic Civilization mechanics, aswell as reworking the combat system somewhat. As you may have guessed from the Gods And Kings name, one of the 2 mechanics making a comeback is religion, allowing players to create it's own organised religion and make prophets to spread it around. The other mechanic is to bring back spies to the series, allowing you to spy on other nations, rig their elections and even steal their advanced technologies. Expect the update in "late spring".

Just seeing this screenshot gives me the itch...

The Walking Dead Adventure Game's First Episode Confirmed As Coming In Spring

It's been a long while since this was announced, and details have been scarce, but we finally have a release window and the game's probable platforms. The game will be coming out in Spring and will probably be coming out on PC, Xbox 360 and PS3, seeing as there will be a Walking Dead talk show on both XBLA and PSN.

Wait, are those zombies?!? Nobody told me there'd be zombies...

Far Cry 3 Trailer Shows September 7th Release Date

The trailer for Far Cry 3 dropped yesterday and, while not showing any gameplay, gives a pretty good idea of the game will play, based on the first Far Cry (which similarly took place on an island) and what we do see in the trailer, which is a sinister group of thugs shooting at you and generally being dicks. Trailer embedded below.
