Hi all, Again I have some new news about the AC3 novel. I'm sure by now more than all of you know about it but I went on some Australian websites and they have it pegged as being out the same day Australia and New Zealand get Assassin's Creed 3 - October 31st 2012. Though, I don't know if this is right because on most sites I've been to it says December 4th but some others say October 30th / 31st, which means it comes out with the game. I know the Revelation's novel came out the same time, within weeks of the game. I was just hoping the novel would come out in the ame week as the game and not have to wait over a month. I'm sure by December 4th I would of played Ac3 a fair few times. Anyway! What do you thin about the Aussie's and New Zealenders getting the novel the same time as the game?!

Sorry! Here is the link of the Aussie website. It says it on the left-hand side:

I guess it doesn't really make much difference. It's just basically a synopsis of the game's plot with maybe a few extra things thrown in. I never really understood the appeal of reading novelizations of a story you already experienced in another medium. But hey, that's just me. I'm sure there are Aussies who are really pumped for this. 08:56, July 19, 2012 (UTC)

According to both and, it is out 8 November. Also confirmed this on the UK Penguin site Source:,,9780718193690,00.html?strSrchSql=Assassin%27s+Creed/Assassin%27s_Creed_New_Book_2012_Oliver_Bowden. Also, I checked the American version of the Penguin site and it said the PREMIUM version is released on 4 December. Could that be the source of the confusion? — Ciphrius Kane (talk) 09:45, July 19, 2012 (UTC)

I for one, like reading the books. It may be a story we already know, but the books have a lot of minute details that most people don't notice while playing. And yeah, a bit of the story that wasn't in the game. Looking forward to this. Premium version sounds legit =P 14:33, July 19, 2012 (UTC)

All these conflicting dates are confusing but I dug some more today and some independent Australian bookstores are also saying October 31st - whoch means in Australia, and maybe New Zealand, that AC3 is out with the game. I have some Aussie mates who are hoping this is true. As for the books I LOVE reading them! The Revelation's novel had more depth to Ezio and Sofia's marriage and it didn't seem like it came out no nowhere so much in the novel =] And we are meant to have more "Connor being a child" moments in the novel, which I'm excited about! We never saw Ezio as an 8 or 10 year old (which I assume is the age Connor will be, or at least close to that)(Harlan1500 (talk) 03:02, July 20, 2012 (UTC))

Nothing better than backstory on a character that seems just as complex as Ezio and Altair ^-^ Can't wait for this. ~ GI Auditore Talk to me maybe? 07:05, July 20, 2012 (UTC)

I totally agree! =] The narration with the other novels are amazing. So much more detail that always makes me think about the game more and I go back and re-play them I realize some things make more sence after reading them! (Harlan1500 (talk) 09:09, July 20, 2012 (UTC))

Hmm I never really liked novels based on video games, but everyone says AC's are really good so i might give them a try just to examine the writing style. However I second the guy way above, I don't see the appeal to the novels when this wiki right here explains every similarity and difference.Rotionpotion (talk) 13:39, July 20, 2012 (UTC)

The stories are actually quite decent. The spelling and grammar however, leave much to be desired — Ciphrius Kane (talk) 01:17, July 21, 2012 (UTC)

There's also the fact that when it doesn't contradict anything in game, the books do add lots of lore to the series surrounding the Assassins' lives. Slate Vesper (talk) 01:51, July 21, 2012 (UTC)
Slate Vesper, I believe Ubisoft gives Oliver Bowden the scripts so he does not get anything wrong! Because, as we all know, one little slip up in the AC Universe could unravel thousands of AC lore and no one wants that =] But they do give him some creative leeway - like in the AC2 novel. He wrote those Cristina bits on his own and then Ubisoft put them in Brotherhood as repressed memories. And the stuff with Altaïr's childhood, he wrote them on his own and Ubisoft added it to the AC lore so it all fitted perfectally. (Harlan1500 (talk) 11:08, July 23, 2012 (UTC))
