Invisibility and cloning added to Assassin's Creed III multiplayer

If you're looking forward to skulking around in the online modes of Assassin's Creed III, Ubisoft has revealed a few more of the toys you'll get to play with.

Players will be able to equip up to ten perks per game, allowing them to customise their abilities to suit their style of play. Glimmer, for example, allows you to turn invisible. The effect grows stronger the more you sneak, but disappears should you make any sudden moves.

Blender, meanwhile, allows you to make delicious smoothies. Sorry, no, it copies your appearance onto a nearby civilian when hiding in crowds, distracting and confusing anyone stalking you. For those who grow tired of all the stealthy stuff, the Unstoppable perk turns you into a veritable juggernaut, able to run through crowds without slowing down.

Assassin's Creed III is shaping up to be a suitably epic conclusion to the story of history-hopping fugitive Desmond Miles, as he jaunts back into the life of Connor, a half-English, half-Native American warrior in the American War of Independence. You'll command naval ships, build up your own rural community and meet legendary historical figures such as George Washington. You'll also kill lots of people with stabby weapons.

Assassin's Creed III is out for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 from October 31st. A PC version follows on November 23rd, while the game will also be a launch title for the new Wii U console on November 30th.
