UK Amazon box art reveals the PS3 version of upcoming Ubisoft sequel will seemingly include "60 minutes of exclusive gameplay".
It appears that the PlayStation 3 version of Ubisoft's upcoming Assassin's Creed III will be released with an hour of exclusive gameplay.
A UK Amazon listing for the game reveals the PS3 box art, which is shown to display a "PS3 Exclusive Addition" sticker boasting "60 minutes of exclusive gameplay".
Ubisoft reportedly told Joystiq that this exclusive gameplay is the same content that was announced during Sony's Electronic Entertainment Expo press conference this year (when it was revealed an Assassin's Creed III PS3 bundle will be launching on October 30 with a console, game and DLC).
Ubisoft and Sony teamed up for similar exclusives with the release of Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood in 2010, including a PS3-exclusive beta-testing phase and a batch of post-release DLC.
According to reports last month, it appears that Ubisoft is planning episodic add-on content for Assassin's Creed III, and may be offering a Season Pass for the game.
Set during the American Revolution, Assassin's Creed III features a new protagonist named Connor who will involve himself in the ongoing struggle between the Templars and the Assassins. The game is being built by Ubisoft Montreal and six collaborating studios on a new engine called Ubisoft-AnvilNext.
