New Assassin's Creed PC screens

Death by sword - and Persian rug

It's a little late to the party but the PC version of roof-top hopping stab-'em-up Assassin's Creed finally releases next month on PC. Here are three new shots to remind us.

To soothe the ire of PC gamers chucking a wobbly over the wait, Ubisoft's stuffing four new chunks of content into the version, which has warranted a little addition to the game's name - the PC edition's called Assassin's Creed: Director's Cut.

The new elements include the Rooftop Race Challenge (a race to a specified location) and the Archer Stealth Assassination Challenge (where the player must assassinate all archers in a certain zone to help out fellow assassins).

We wouldn't be at all surprised to see these new bits released for Xbox 360 and PS3 at some point down the line.
