Also available for : PC, PS3, Xbox360

Assassin's Creed III lead writer Matt Turner says the game will feature more Desmond than any previous entry in the series.<br/><br/>"All I can say about Desmond's story is you're going to experience more Desmond than you've ever had before," Turner told <a target="_blank" href="http://www.computerandvideogames.com/342572/assassins-creed-3-will-have-more-modern-day-sections-than-ever-before/" target="_blank">CVG</a>. "We're spending more time on the present than we have in past games."<br/><br/>"It's a big part of our story and I don't really want to give too many details away because I want people to experience what that is," Turner added. "But rest assured, you're going to see a lot of Desmond. More so than in any past game."<br/><br/> <object id="vid_b05b23dd5400c40466a266e4004adbf9" class="ign-videoplayer" width="468" height="263" data="http://oystatic.ignimgs.com/src/core/js/../swf/IGNPlayer.swf" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"><param name="movie" value="http://oystatic.ignimgs.com/src/core/js/../swf/IGNPlayer.swf"/><param name="" value="true"/><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"/><param name="bgcolor" value="#000000"/><param name="flashvars" value="url=http://www.ign.com/videos/2012/03/26/assassins-creed-3-gameplay-innovation"/><param name="wmode" value="opaque"/></object> <b><center>Gameplay Innovation in Assassin's Creed III</center></b><br/><br/>Previously, Assassin's Creed creative lead Alexandre Amacio said that ACIII would be <a target="_blank" href="http://ps3.ign.com/articles/119/1197894p1.html" target="_blank">the end of Desmond's story</a>.
