Electronic Theatre ImageAs the release of Assassin’s Creed III approaches more-and-more details on each and every gameplay mode included in the videogame are being revealed. Electronic Theatre has previously brought you exclusive details on the Homestead, Sequence 6 and our new protagonist, Connor Kenway, and today it’s the turn of the multiplayer gameplay.

Electronic Theatre recently sat down with Tim Browne, Lead Game Designer on the Assassin’s Creed III multiplayer at Ubisoft Annecy, and discussed just where the team has invested their time following the multiplayer mode birthed in Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood Electronic Theatre Imageand refined in Assassin’s Creed: Revelations. One key area is the post-launch support.

“So we have a lot of fun, post launch events planned, and these events will be… there’s going to be some quite big events.” States Browne when discussing the idea of the proposed monthly events. “We say ‘monthly’ but it may not be ‘calendar monthly’ sort of thing and with that there is the multiplayer story, and we’re going to be adding to that story.”

Many videogames have proposed regular events in the past. Mass Effect 2 introduced the idea of continuously updated message boards at the frontend of console videogames, and since then the technique has been adopted by multiplayer experiences to inform the community of new features and events. Assassin’s Creed III looks set to follow suit.

“You’ll see in-game, there’ll be in announcements telling you when the first event is going to be.” Confirms Browne. “There’ll be news stories and announcements and things like that, and we can Electronic Theatre Imagemessage to players so you’ll know fairly early on when the first event will be.”

Taking part in these events promises to be a rewarding experience, with Browne promising that there will be items and customisation features that will be available only to the most dedicated players: “There’ll be some cool stuff that when you take part you’ll be able to unlock, but only if you take part. I won’t go into detail on that because that would be too many spoilers, but we’ve got plenty of stuff planned: this is all free stuff, this is post launch.”

Assassin’s Creed III is set to launch on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC later this month, with a Wii U version to follow, and Electronic Theatre will bring you the full interview with Tim Browne and a hands-on preview of the multiplayer gameplay later this week.
