Assassin’s Creed 3 arctic map and game modes
A recent trailer of Assassin’s Creed 3 multiplayer story has been taken offline since it was seen last Wednesday night although it is still being sighted on YouTube. In this footage, viewers get the opportunity to see a new arctic map, along with details on the game’s modes.
The multiplayer has been regarded as a training exercise within Templar-backed research company Abstergo, creator of the history-recalling animus device, and Abstergo has now begun selling animus devices for commercial use. Commenting on this multiplayer story hinted at in the trailer Eurogamer looks at what seems to be available and lets us in on the Assassin’s Creed 3 modes including team-based AI hunt Wolfpack.
They have also spotted favorites like Capture the Flag, Team Deathmatch, Wanted, Manhunt and Artifact Assault, along with a list of challenges to compete in with friends, including Meet Ted, Open the can and Drive the car. In a part known as Story Quest a roadmap of “future initiatives” is seen along with story-based files which are unlocked as you level-up, much the same as that experienced in Assassin’s Creed: Revelations with the Templar-based story information.
In the trailer (that’s if you can find it), you will hear the Abstergo baddie Warren Vidic narrating, and those may remember him from the Revelations’ multiplayer storyline. Apparently, the footage shows there is still a lot of work to be done, although their embedded video looks as if it has now been blocked by Ubisoft on copyright grounds.
Many of those who have seen it feel that although there are no achievements assigned to the multiplayer the idea of online achievements and trophies is one they can do without. What is your opinion?
