According to the Ubisoft web site, a new game that takes place in the Assassin's Creed universe is coming soon, exclusively to the iPhone. Assassin’s Creed II: Multiplayer will utilize a WiFi connection to hunt down three other assassins online in some type of strange top-down stealth-oriented deathmatch.

Assassin’s Creed 2: Multiplayer, an exclusive game for iPhone & iPod touch and the first game in the series that allows you to compete against your friends.

The game is said to have three different environments that are all inspired by the italian cities of Assassin's Creed II along with six different power-ups for players to utilize when mowing down their opponents. The feature listing also includes mention of a notoriety system, which sounds like a fancy online leaderboard of sorts, and of course, the game comes loaded with its own set of achievements.

Last month, news broke that Ubisoft had plans for a multiplayer Assassin's Creed game and when we spoke with Assassin's Creed II: Discovery producer Ben Mattes, he did say to expect some "super-cool content" coming in the following weeks and months, and it seems this is Ubisoft's followup to that commitment.

Assassin's Creed II: Multiplayer is "coming soon", and as soon as we have more details we will post them.

Thanks @RustyFirestar

    Wow! (then...) wait, what!?! Top down view? I'd rather have an intense sidescrolling multiplayer with races, stealth eliminations, and target hunting. Oh well... I guess time will tell if this is awesome! The screenshots didn't do much for me though.

    Those screen shots look horrible. This one's going to need video of gameplay before I would even consider this.

    Hmm. My first though:

    BAD - Birds-eye view
    GOOD - 2D gameplay, which means slightly more than 3 hours of gameplay on an iPod Touch 1G/2G. That's still very miserable, but it's better than how long the battery lasts on 3D gameplay.

  • h0130j03

    Im sorry but that looks terrible...I agree with Hitch. When I saw the top i thought "oh yess...epic multiplayer assasins creed...too cool" then i read down :/ and why the heck does it look like an rpg?! im pissed. not that i dont like some rpgs. oh well...it might turn out to be good. :/

    I'm guessing their trying to replicate Activision's success with the Call of Duty by making a multiplayer only game of a big franchise, possibly with a premium price. From the screenshots though, it's really hard to tell what type of gameplay they are trying to achieve.

    Weird. Looks nothing like the other Assassin's Creed games.

    Why do I have the feeling that they're ruining the AC series with every spin-of they make??!
    I have bad feelings about this one, though I know I shouldn't judge them before it has come out, but sorry, this one just looks horrible!
