From its inception in Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, multiplayer has been a point of contention between fans of the series. Some still hold that it should be removed from the series, others simply don’t enjoy it, while many, including myself, love it for providing something different to the usual FPS shooting.
For Assassin’s Creed III multiplayer will be returning. The trailer below shows us that not enough has probably changed to sway the opinions of those already against the multiplayer, but for the rest of us it looks like we’re in for one hell of a treat. The only concern is that Glimmer, a new ability being added, might be a bit too powerful. Spotting enemy assassins in massive crowds of AI and on rooftops is already a tough task, do we really need to hand them an ability to turn nearly invisible as well? Only time will tell.
