IGN's Livestreaming the Launch of the AC3 Trailer...and It Starts in Fifteen Minutes! 

Which means…


The Hidden History of Assassin’s Creed III

A great video from IGN.com that dissects the history revealed in the recent AC3 art released by Ubisoft. Things discussed are:

  • the evolution of the beaked hood
  • the thirteen-starred flag of the Colonies (placing the game’s time period after 1777)
  • the back cover of Game Informer magazine, depicting a tri-cornered hat-wearing patriot, possibly George Washington
  • Native American alliances
  • other historical goodness

Worth a watch!

Join 1UP and IGN for Our Assassin's Creed: Revelations Live Stream 

Catch an early glimpse at both the first-person and multiplayer gamplay of Assassin’s Creed Revelations Monday at 10AM PST (1PM EST), with a chance to win amazing prizes!

To kick off this week’s final flurry of high-profile game releases for 2011, 1UP and IGN will be teaming up to live stream one of the most anticipated titles of the year on Monday morning. Come read our review of Assassin’s Creed: Revelations, then watch us show off the game.

At 10 a.m. Monday, Nov. 14 (Pacific Time), Jeremy Parish, Thierry Nguyen, and Ryan Winterhalter will be killing Templars and harassing citizens in the city of Constantinople (not Istanbul) as well as exploring Revelations’ expanded multiplayer component. Then, at noon, you can refresh this page or head over to IGN to check out their in-depth look at the different kinds of missions available to the game’s three playable protagonists.

And what would a live stream be without fabulous prizes? Ubisoft has kindly donated a dozen Ezio statues that we’ll be giving away to the people who ask us the most interesting questions about Revelations via Twitter. Just tweet a question our way (@1up) with the hashtag #acr and you could win your very own Ezio (provided you’re over the age of 18 and live in the U.S. — sorry, our legal department says that’s how it’s gotta be). At the end of our portion of the stream, we’ll also be giving away the grand prize package: An Ezio statue and PlayStation 3 copies of both Revelations and its predecessor Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood.

So please join us Monday morning, right here, at 10 a.m. as we kill some well-deserving fools (and ignore roaming packs of beggars).
