Ubisoft has officially announced a release time frame for the PC version of Assassin's Creed. The medieval assassination parkour simulator, which has already sold 2.5 million copies since its November release on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, is scheduled to hit PCs some time in March.
Folks intending to play the title on their PCs will likely want to invest in some upgrades first, though. Ubisoft posted the system requirements for Assassin's Creed PC last month, and the company recommends a 2.2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo or AMD Athlon 64 X2 processor, 3GB of RAM, a 512MB graphics card with Shader Model 3.0 support, and a hard drive with 12GB of free space. The company also recommends that PC users play with an Xbox 360 controller instead of their mouse and keyboard.
Fortunately, There will be some extras to lure in gamers patient and motivated enough to play the game on their PCs. Ubisoft says the PC version of Assassin's Creed will incorporate content that isn't featured in the console releases. That content will include four new investigations, which will allow players to "explore the various locations of the Third Crusade," according to Ubisoft.
