And yeup, that's right - 17GB of hard drive space. But if Ubisoft has anything to say about it, then expect plenty of new features in the new Assassin's Creed.
Assassin's Creed 3 will take place during the later half of the 18th century, during the American Revolution. Gamers will take control of Connor Kenway, who will play a major role during America's fight for independence from the British.
Among new multiplayer features, Assassin's Creed 3 will also introduce naval battles , allowing players to control ships and even board them with Connor.
Ubisoft says that the game has been redesigned from the ground up, and from the way it looks, it should be paying off - this Assassin's Creed looks to be the best yet.
Assassin's Creed 3 will release earlier on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on October 30 in the United States.
