The multiplayer mode in Assassin's Creed 3 will feature monthly challenges that will run parallel to the story in the main game, according to developers Ubisoft.

Speaking to Computer and Video Games, game director Damien Kieken explained that the multiplayer is so significant it could be considered a title unto itself, given the fact that they can utilise the Abstergo storyline.

Abstergo is the company behind Animus in the Assassin's Creed world, which is the product that allows individuals to inhabit genetic memories.

"Abstergo Entertainment will give you insights on the company's future initiatives by granting you access to files and information on products that will soon hit the market," said Keiken.

These "files and information" will undoubtedly refer to downloadable content and new updates that players can unlock.

"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 continue the storyline throughout the year."

The hope is that this will keep gamers playing the Assassin's Creed 3 multiplayer mode for much longer, as it provides a greater reason to build an online career.

It will also allow for a Season Pass-type product that gives players access to the content on a regular basis, and it sounds as if there will be a pre-order for this soon.

There are other additions to the multiplayer mode, including a "dynamic weather system" that can greatly influence play, for example, if a snow storm or heavy rain shower comes along that inhibits the player's visibility, making it harder to spot their quarry.

New modes are to be introduced too, including Domination, which is a traditional four versus four team-based deathmatch, and Wolfpack, a game type that will team up two to four players to hunt down AI opponents in a race against time.

Assassin's Creed 3 is set to be released for PC on November 23rd in the UK.ADNFCR-1220-ID-801442908-ADNFCR
