A new Assassin's Creed 3 trailer that reportedly briefly popped up on GameTrailers (via: Eurogamer), reveals that Ubisoft appears to have woven the new game's multiplayer mode into the franchise's rich narrative this time around.
The trailer, which can still be found on YouTube (but probably not for much longer), pitches the game's multiplayer as a consumer-window into the past, with the game's fictional research company Abstergo calling on players to relive history via their genetic memory technology in the Animus device.
Gameplay demonstrates a new multiplayer game mode call Wolf-pack, which let's players team up co-operatively against AI opponents, as well as the return of Wanted, Manhunt, Artifact Assault, Team Deathmatch and Capture the Flag.
Eurogamer points out that the footage appears to be from a work-in-progress build of the game, with a dev-message news ticker seen within, so we're not sure if this trailer was intended for public eyes in this form. So check it out while you still can.
