Sage advice Alex.

She looks like she is having fun. Hollering and stuff.

It's funny how you can instantly tell what is written by Alex.

This game keeps getting better and better.

Cool

Hopefully they will have fixed the shit they broke in Revelations MP.

Brotherhood MP was brilliant, but Revelations MP was a huge misstep imo.

First thing I notice in the trailer is that the MP characters are very distinct and unique looking, and not the bland uninspiring homogenization that Revelations (non DLC) characters were. So this makes me hopeful. Now if they also revert to the low/high profile scoring system the way it worked in Brotherhood and not Revelations, sign me up.

Edit: oh and I do hope they fixed their overall shitty netcode (i'm looking at you kills in smoke and mute) that BS was almost too much to deal with

Another day, another Assassin's Creed III video.

so nothing new? I wish they would get rid of guns in this game, It sucks being shot from across the map.

Perfect frame-capture that, perfect.

Never really got into this multiplayer, but the concept always intrigued me. I'll try to give it a better chance this time; could always use a non-twitch online game to mix things up.

I was really going to wait on AC3 as I'm 2 games behind in the series, but I really dig the MP and with the right deal, I might just cave on it, play the MP for a while until I catch up on the story and then tackle the Connor SP mode. Stabbing dudes is just too entertaining.

The guy with the hook is going to be my guy.

People still play this multiplayer? It's cool that Ubi continues to push it, though I don't know many who play it.

Weird, cause in both Brotherhood and Revelation, I never had trouble getting into a game and I absolutely LOVE Assassin's Creed multiplayer.

I wish they finally implemented a counter "contested" kill mechanic. There should be some QTE mini game on part of the player getting killed so that you can't just contest everything and ruin the points for the pursuer. I always thought contested kills were somewhat cheap and got pretty angry when they happened. That whole mechanic needs to get fixed where you can DO something in a situation where you see someone from a distance, instead of just waiting to get a contested kill or making a run for it which will usually end with your death.

Love this multiplayer. Almost looking forward to it as much as the 1P. Almost.

Man, get perks and invisibility and shit out of there. I really liked the early levels of Brotherhood's multiplayer, but once you get up to the higher levels, everybody has a bunch of stupid powers like "Templar vision" that just let you see who the other players are in a crowd that totally negate the mind game of trying to blend in and outsmart your opponents.

Seriously, so bummed to see all that crap return. I hope they have a "hardcore" mode or something that just removes all the perks and powers.

Alot of the skills they're describing have been there since AC:Brotherhood.

Darn. I was secretly hoping there wouldn't be any multiplayer in the game.

Oh, well. At least it's optional.

Agreed. I had so much fun during the Revelations beta since players only had a handful of abilities to choose from. What I'd love to see are some gametypes where players can only choose from a handful of predefined loadouts.

have I become a graphicwhore...

all I can think of while watching the video was that it's on low/mid graphic setting

I'm maining either Indian woman or Justin Bieber-looking kid.

The people complaining about the mere existence of the multiplayer are really bumming me out. Ubisoft has managed to create something inspired and unique in a field of same-y MP modes and evidently that just doesn't cut it for you.

Posted by blueinferno

The multiplayer is cool but I come to Assassin's Creed for the single player.

Posted by DanTheGamer32

I'm actually glad this is making a return. Playing with my friends as a group of fat beardy men was one of my favourite moments in recent multiplayer times.

Drop a money bomb on it son!

This looks pretty decent, but what's with all the final fantasy outfits?

Posted by Viking_Funeral

I see they added Tidus to the multiplayer.
