Assassin's Creed 3 - Official Animus Trailer

Created by Abstergo’s incredible research into genetic memory, ANIMUS gives you the chance to choose your favorite hero and to game within the past during the American Revolution.

This trailer highlights the multiplayer aspects of Assassin’s Creed 3.

Domination is a 4 vs 4 team based game in which each team has to capture and defend as many territory points as possible.
Wolfpack is a 2 – 4 players vs AI mode in which you need to assassinate targets before the time runs out.

We also see the upgrade system and a brief look at character unlocks. The game will also show you progress of your friends and give you the ability to challenge them. (Assassin's Creed III, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Ive never liked the whole animus side of things, wish it was just set in the time period that the characters are played in.

It's a lame excuse for invisible boundaries and other "game" mechanics.

Also this trailer was cheesy and the MP looks boring. Only Brotherhood's MP was appealing at the time.

And lol "We offer multiple game modes: Domination and Wolfpack"
Well, technically that's "multiple" as it's more than 1.

How is this a lame excuse for anything when this is what the entire story is about? If we were thrown into the first game in Altair's shoes, wouldn't you ask yourself, "Why am I here right now?" You'd basically be going after the Apple of Eden but for absolutely no reason at all, other than to get it from evil men who want to rule the world. You wouldn't know that the Templar's are still an organization during modern times still trying to achieve world domination. You literally would have no link between Altair and Ezio, other than for the purpose of finding and guarding the Apple, which is literally every Assassins job to do. Saying the game didn't need the Animus is like saying Halo didn't need the Halo's. It would be about a guy named Chief fighting some aliens. Meaning there would be no backbone to the story and it would then become another game about stopping aliens from taking Earth.

Agree with you robochobo....I'm not getting how such an integral part of the story is a lame excuse for boundaries. What boundaries?
Zha1tan  +   802d ago
I wouldnt be as brash as that, the game obviously has to have boundaries in some way or other.

Just felt it sucked me out of the immersion when I was roaming around and then I just got sucked out into the future.

you realize there are more than 2 new game modes right? its a tease

And robochobo nailed it in his explanation so I won't bother

Well at 2:07 you can see;
Wanted
Assassinate
Manhunt
Domination
Artifact Assault
Team Deathmatch
Capture The Flag
Steal The Artifact
Drive The Car
Open The Can
Meet Ted

I'm not sure on the last ones but that is 12 on that page, so by multiple there will be enough game modes.

Noone else sees this as Ubisoft's multiplayer Battlelog? Watch it again and tell me.

multiplayer =D

I wish they'd show a trailer with Desmond and everything.. :/
TekoIie  +   802d ago
Did the Abstergo symbol remind anyone else of chrome?

I gotta say I'm happy there not telling us ANYTHING on Desmond. It's going to make his part in the story more of a mystery when I start playing :)
