Assassin's Creed III To Get Long-Term Post-Launch Multiplayer Support
Written Tuesday, September 04, 2012 By Richard WalkerView author's profile
Ubisoft has revealed that Assassin's Creed III multiplayer will be the most substantial yet with long-term support planned, including monthly challenges that will unlock more of the game's Abstergo storyline, with the nefarious Warren Vidic at the centre of it all, as usual. Apparently, everyone can now enjoy HD killing in their own home with their own animus device.
"The multiplayer is so big today that it's already a game on its own. We've been given the right to develop the Abstergo storyline since the beginning, which is a big responsibility," Ubisoft Annecy Director Damien Keiken told CVG. "As you progress in the game and level up your character, you access these files and videos. Every month you'll have new challenges to unlock new content that will continue the storyline throughout the year."
Through playing and levelling up in multiplayer, you'll learn more about the home animus device, as well as Vidic and the Templars' plans for world domination and stuff. New modes like the co-op Wolf Pack are promised, as well as dynamic weather and a host of other improvements. "Now in the multiplayer maps, a snow storm or heavy rain can seriously affect your visibility, making it harder to spot the other players," Keiken noted.
"What are the real motivations behind Abstergo's sudden initiative to release such a revolutionary product to the public?" Keiken said, regarding the animus device. "A product that is redefining the way we're thinking, the way we're living..."
You'll be able to find out when Assassin's Creed III launches on October 31st, 2012. Check out the multiplayer trailer again below.
