In early February we were tipped off to a mysterious announcement on Ubisoft's web site regarding a multiplayer Assassin's Creed game exclusive to the iPhone and iPod touch. Last night Assassin's Creed II: Multiplayer [App Store] was released, along with the surprising promotional price point: Free for the next 48 hours.

AC2: Multiplayer initially appears to be an extremely simple game. Players are matched with other assassins online, and then pick up assassination targets to determine which player they need to kill. Following this, you wander around town until you find them, then tap to assassinate. Doing well in a game seems to actually require a surprising amount of skill, as you need to walk with the other civilians around town, matching their movement as much as possible, all the while looking for other civilians who are moving irregularly or are somewhere they wouldn't normally be.

The game is loaded with several different power-ups, online leaderboards, a friends system, and other cool unexpected features. It's even under 20MB, so you can download it over 3G. In two days it's going back to its normal price of $2.99, so be sure you grab this game while it's still free.

    Woohoo! This is my favorite app right now (ranked 3 on the world leaderboards) but it's a bit to hard find games! I predict this game will slowly die out when it goes on sale which is a shame because I really want it to succeed.

    • Deewin

      I just tried playing with a friend and the experience isn't so smooth yet. You need to wait a full group of 4 people to join and that can take 3-5 minutes which feels like forever when waiting.

    the game is really fun, I think that's why they made it free for 2 days, so people would get it, creating a player database so that late adopters would consider it worthy of purchase, overall really nice game.

      You're missing out. This is the most fun I've had with an iPhone game in a long time. Whoever came up with this concept is brilliant.

    Woa, this shit is not worth it. Waiting for other players can take up to 10 minutes! So no "quick" games.

      Think you have to have some patience the game has only been out for a couple of hours :)

    • Deewin

      Yeah this game takes forever to find game!

    Isn't anyone else experiencing bugs in this game? It takes a while to find games, fails a lot to connect and when I finally manage to log onto a game it simply freezes the screen most of the times...
    I found it very fun and an incredibly smart gameplay, but I wasn't able to play a whole game...

    Finally! :)
    After waiting 10 more minutes and hosting a game myself I got 4 players, 2 of them dropped at the beginning though. I managed to win over my single ennemy 5-0 :D
    I guess he was noob too, since he didn't act very intelligent, he just ran around instead of going walking stealthy with the crow and such.

    Free? They should have to pay me for the time I wasted on this clunky monster with its constantly frozen user interface. Deleted.

    I would love for Ubisoft to add an update that enables you to just play with AI. I hate having my gaming be delayed because I hafta wait for three other douches to join.
