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."

Wow. Mouse and keyboard controls are too hard? Even indie games get that right. I just have to laugh at these guys.

They were always to lazy to add proper 16:10 aspect support. Now mouse and keyboard is to much?

Oh wait they need another 6 months to do PC centric things because they can not plan it into the development cycle like they should be.

Just don't even bother releasing it.

You can't say "We love PC" in one breath, and then say "I don't see us investing hugely in a mouse and keyboard setup", in the next.

Huge investment? Does that mean that the PC version will be cheaper? It should be, since they aren't investing in making it a proper port.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: clearly you want out of the PC market Ubisoft, so just pack your shit and get out already! You've got a brain dead DRM scheme and now you're going to go so far as to say, "yes it will run on the PC but we didn't put any actual work into it so you'll get what we give you and be happy with it!"

I think they view it as any money from the PC versions they deliver months late is just bonus revenue. It's a shame because the previous AC games after 1 were actually pretty good ports and that was their big excuse on why they were so late to market.

From what I understand there will be Keyboard and Mouse support, it's just that it will get little attention.

Well, they can screw themselves.

This is patently absurd, as if keybinding was some arduous task that will involve the entire company. What's next, Kinect only? Sorry controller users, its all about motion now.

I hope he means something silly like not showing the PC prompts for QTE segments. Not allowing the use of KB/M is basically saying "we want free monies from you without doing any work", I can only assume he meant custom binds or whatever. The AC games have enough controls that custom keybinds are practically a necessity. Hell I find myself wanting to redo their input scheme even on the controllers.

Alex Hutchinson: "2 months before official release we will delay PC port for 6 months to include PC love (adv. graphics options, mouse and keyboard)".

Said it first.

Sigh....

LOL? No mouse and keyboard support for a PC game?

Protip: Don't bother releasing the PC version.

If you don't like where gaming is heading, stop giving your money to the people who are taking it in that direction.
