In yet another serendipitous info leak, Microsoft has gone and posted some new info on their Marketplace feature listing for Assassin’s Creed III. Before the info was speedily removed, Microsoft listed online co-op and multiplayer features for the latest entry in the series. Whether you’ll be able to play through the campaign with friends or not is entirely unknown at this point. Heck it could be limited to some sort of crazy horde mode for all we know.
Also listed was 8 player multiplayer, most likely building off the sort of experiences we’ve been seeing in the previous two titles. For now, I’d classify all of this as a rumor, since the only real source on this is Microsoft. However, the possibilities are pretty damn exciting.
