The lights are on
A few weeks ago, we revealed Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed III to the world in our latest cover story. Since then, many of you have naturally had questions about the exciting American Revolution setting, new protagonist, and gameplay changes. Now's your chance to ask the makers.
We'll take your questions straight to the team at Ubisoft Montreal and get the answers you crave. Obviously, the developers aren't going to spill the beans about everything in this podcast (pro tip: don't bother asking about multiplayer), but If you have any lingering questions about the information we shared about the game in our cover story or subsequent online coverage (click the banner below to check it out), share them in the comments section below. We'll select the best queries and ask them during in a special-edition Game Informer podcast with the dev team later in the month.

There are only two questions that I've been wanting the answers to. First, there was a rumor about co-op going around not too long ago. When I saw this I thought it would be pretty cool to assassinate guards and such with your friends, one person being Connor the other(s) being an assassin recruit. But it was just a rumor so...is it true? Also I was wondering if or when a Collector's Edition would go on sale.
Altair and Ezio had two different personalities that made players and fans of the AC series love these two characters and connect with their life stories. How are you going to make Connor reach the level of interest or what type of personality will he have?
What can you tell us about the rumors of co-op in the next game? what changes will be made to the multiplayer mode if any? how will the tomahawk shown on the GI cover factor into the game? will it be the only weapon you use other than the hidden blade or will you still be able to change them as in the three previous games?
Will we get an open world to run around in as Desmond, similar (but hopefully larger) to Monterrigioni in Brotherhood?
Will the seasons change during freeplay too?
If they do will it be some sort of cycle like the day/night cycle or will it be different?
what is the length of the story for example AC2 was particularly more lengthy than brotherhood or revelations will the game be longer than AC2, shorter, or the same size?
