Compound the colonial carnage with AC3’s multiplayer mode

Ubisoft has put out a boatload of crazy trailers that show off how awesome and painstakingly detailed the single player campaign will be in Assassin’s Creed III, but it hasn’t given us much detail on what the multiplayer gameplay will be like until now. This isn’t the first time the AC series has offered a multiplayer mode, but it appears that this one will be more full-featured than any before it. 

In addition to the traditional deathmatch and domination modes, AC3‘s multiplayer will include a gametype known as Wolf Pack, in which small groups cooperate to assassinate a given number of enemies before time runs out. Players will be able to take control of 16 new characters — all of which have their own special perks and attributes — and compete on a variety of new maps and locations.
