Assassin's Creed III will get new challenges and content every month

Multiplayer developer Ubisoft Annecy says there will be a greater focus on multiplayer in Assassin's Creed 3.

In Assassin's Creed III, the Animus has been turned into a commercial product by Abstergo and in the multiplayer segment of III you'll play has a consumer who's looking forward to "reliving the past in HD."

Players will be able to unlock new multiplayer content every month through new challenges Ubisoft has said. "As you progress in the game and level up your character, you access these files and videos. Every month you'll have new challenges to unlock new content that will the storyline throughout the year" Ubisoft Annecy game director Damien Kieken said to CVG in their recent preview of the game.

Multiplayer environments within Assassin's Creed III now have a greater impact on gameplay, weather effects such as blizzards and sudden storms will have an effect on players visibility and during this time players will be able to use special environmental kills such as using objects like bottles and axes to inflict pain on their foes. 

You can preoder the Assassin's Creed III: Join or Die edition today at ShopTo below.

Considering its inflated retail price, I think the question has to be : how much extra will it cost me to keep up with these content drops? Ac multiplayer was always fun, but the franchise is becoming a money spinner for ubi and I have no intention of being ripped off for constant mp content!

PS3 looks to be the best version with it's 1 hour exclusive content along with un locks if you have the vita version also. However will these new monthly updates cost money? Or will they be like ME3's free MP updates.

From the sounds of it they could well be free. Complete one of the monthly challenges to get the unlock. Don't complete it, you miss the unlock. It's likely that many of these unlocks will probably be more cosmetic than game changing.

Im hoping that when you get the game and register it that it will act like an online pass as monthly content drops always seem to cost more than the original game in the end!!At over £40 that is more than enough and should have all the content thrown in.

i hope as usual this doesn't take to much away from the single player, i loved the story and i wont be happy if the third skips on it to push multiplayer, if it does then theres always liberation i suppose!

This is a great way to make players continue enjoying one game even after completing it. I am just wondering if the new content each month is going to be free of charge or will it be in way a monthly subscription to be able to receive new content. I do hope that it will be free by just completing challenges in game and developing your character.

Good to hear. :) More challenges and content can only be a good thing considering the price of dlc is reasonable.
