Assassin's Creed III is the fastest-selling game in Ubisoft history, the studio has announced today, selling 7 million copies worldwide in a month following its global launch on October 31st. In that time, more than 82 centuries of gameplay have been recorded in single-player alone, with 3 billion assassinations being committed.
In multiplayer modes meanwhile, more than twice the number of players are playing in comparison to Assassin's Creed: Revelations' community, with more than 250 million assassinations being performed across over 5 billion multiplayer sessions. Wowzers.
“We are delighted with the performance of Assassin’s Creed III this Christmas,” said Rob Cooper, Ubisoft's UK Managing Director. “This is a beautiful and epic game of exceptional quality and we’re pleased that our fans have responded so well to the brand new universe, storyline and game experience.”
Assassin's Creed III has been given a recent bit of DLC with The Hidden Secrets Pack, which is available now for 400 Microsoft Points, or with the Season Pass for 2400 MSP.
