Online Multiplayer Assassin's Creed II Coming To The iPhoneS

Assassin's Creed II Discovery has only recently hit iTunes, and Ubisoft is readying another dose of portable professional killing with Assassin's Creed II: Multiplayer, an online game of kill-or-be-killed for the iPhone.

Coming soon to iTunes, Assassin's Creed II: Multiplayer is an online multiplayer game for the iPhone, which uses a Wi-Fi connection to connect you with up to three other players in a game of hide and go die. The goal is simple: kill the other players before they kill you. Players will be able to blend into the crowd in order to avoid detection in three different environments inspired by cities of the Italian Renaissance. You can even use one of six different power-ups, just like real assassins!

Ubisoft is packing the game with features, including a dynamic notoriety ranking system, a built-in friends list, and 24 achievements you can post to Facebook, where the world goes to find out what you've been up to.

The initial screens may be a bit small and simplistic, but I've always been a big fan of games where you can kill Bob. Man, I hate that guy.
