It hasn't been long at all since the release of Assassin's Creed II: Discovery, but the folks at Ubisoft have already announced their plans to release a third Assassin's Creed game on the App Store. Titled "Assassin's Creed II: Multiplayer," this iPhone-exclusive title will feature some sort of four-player assassin deathmatch. The screenshots show a top-down view and feature environments inspired by the cities featured in Assassin's Creed II.
It's all live, and will use a WiFi connection for matches, which is a bit disappointing—Bluetooth is so much simpler!—but it's possible that that detail was simply omitted for brevity's sake. You'll have six powerups at your disposal, but perhaps your most important tool will be your assassin's stealth, as you can take advantage of your environments and hide within crowds of citizens. The teaser website also mentions a "notoriety" system, which will use a "dynamic ranking system" to place players on the leaderboards, as well as built-in achievements. You'll be able to challenge friends to matches, but I hope that random matchups are also included.
You can read the full details revealed so far on Ubisoft's website. In the meantime, we'll anxiously await the release of more information (or better yet, the game itself!). We've already seen two solid ports of the Assassin's Creed DS games to the App Store, and this iPhone-exclusive title should be very interesting.
