RGIII teams up with AC3

It?s often said that good things happen in

It’s often said that good things happen in threes and Ubisoft’s latest collaboration is no different. Assassin’s Creed III, the year’s most awaited game, and one of the franchise’s biggest fans, Robert Griffin III (@RGIII), the 2012 second overall professional football draft pick – have come together to help drive awareness and support for the upcoming Presidential election. The two partnered with mi adidas to create a limited edition* run of ACIII and Rock the Vote-inspired CC Seduction sneakers via www.adidas.com that will be bundled with the game’s Digital Download Version and sold via the UbiShop at http://shop.ubi.com/Griffin beginning today as the “Griffin Bundle.” (Oct. 25, 2012) (Credit: Ubisoft)

The NFL gridiron's quarterback sensation has teamed up with the most anticipated video game of the year.  Robert Griffin III joins Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed 3 and mi adidas to help drive awareness and support for the upcoming presidential election.  

Limited Editions of Assassin's Creed 3 and Rock the Vote-inspired CC Seduction sneakers will be sold together with the video game's Digital PC Download version.  This "Griffin Bundle" is available now in both standard and deluxe pricing online via the UbiShop (http://shop.ubi.com/Griffin).

Assassin's Creed 3 has played its part during this year's presidential election ever since partnering in August with Rock The Vote and forming "Art of the Assassin."  The touring exhibit features game-inspired artwork from various street artists nationwide.  Many of these epic pieces are being auctioned off at artoftheassassinauction.com.  A New York City-based street artist inspired by RGIII's interest in the Revolutionary War-themed video game will be added to the auction, with proceeds benefiting Rock the Vote.

Assassin's Creed 3 goes on sale Oct. 30 and is looking to be the must-buy video game of 2012.
