The upcoming third installment of Assassin's Creed will offer new content each month as part of a much more extensive multiplayer experience.

 
The multiplayer game will feature story much more than previous titles and will see the Animus being turned into a commercial product that consumers can go to for reliving the past. This gives Ubisoft a perfect opportunity to launch monthly updates as the story unfolds.
 
The updates will be locked behind challenges that players need to complete and there will be new challenges and new content, including files and videos, available each month. It is not clear how extensive this new content will be in terms of actual gameplay, but it should keep gamers busy once the initial singe-player story has been played.

Multiplayer features will include a new hunting co-op mode called Wolfpack, where players need to find and kill people in a timed challenge, and a four-player versus four-player team mode called Domination. Wolfpack will feature more advanced AI than we've seen in previous games, with a variety of NPC “personalities” that make some fighters, some cowards, and everything else between.
 
These modes will also feature environmental effects, such as visibility-reducing weather, and conveniently-placed bottles and axes that can be utilised by players for a special kill, so the enhancements to the multiplayer experience won't simply be eye-candy.
 
Assassin's Creed III launches at the end of October for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, and late November for PC.
