Ubisoft: Play Assassin's Creed 3 PC With A Controller

There's a preview of Assassin's Creed 3 on GameSpy with quotes from Ubisoft Montreal Creative Director Alex Hutchinson about what to expect from the stealth/action sequel. The author deserves extra points for the concluding Q&A expressing skepticism that the PC edition of the game will be released alongside the console editions. On another PC-related topic, they learn that their professed "love" and plans for "supporting" the PC does not include putting time into mouse and keyboard support (thanks Destructoid). Here's word:

Sadly the PC version won't get much special treatment, he admitted: "We're definitely supporting PC, we love PC, but I think it'll be PC with a controller. I don't see us investing hugely in a mouse and keyboard setup. I think if you want to play on PC and you want to play Assassin's Creed, you have a controller."

The PC version doesn't have good M/KB support, so I'm going to play it on consoles which also doesn't have M/KB support!

The PC accounts for what, 4% of sales? Xbox 55% and PS3 40%? The console versions are going to get by far the most development love (as per usual), so if AC3 on the PC ends up not playable with the kb/m, you're just shooting yourself in the foot buying it on this platform.

Your mistake to make, I suppose, but if even rudimentary kb/m support is too much, you've got to wonder in what other ways they will be pulling back. Sounds like it will be a strict copy and paste job to me, but Jerykk seems to think superior visuals and performance awaits him. Good luck with that one, mate - you're going to need it.

Make no mistake, I have no interest in AC3 as I didn't like the previous games. However, if the previous games are any indication, AC3 PC will have better visuals and performance than the console versions, much like 99% of all ports.
