Ubisoft has learnt from their first go of it and the upcoming Assassin's Creed: Revelations will be expanding its online tricks, including the story crossing over.
Through multiplayer will get a better understanding of Abstergo Industries and the Templars, and why they're hell bent on controlling the world. It will also 'unlock' more of the general lore in Assassin's Creed promise Ubisoft.
Singleplayer features will also cross over into multiplayer and vice versa, and there'll be more ways to joining specific games with map and mode voting also making the cut. Players can also "represent themselves" through customisation.
Assassin's Creed: Revelations releases on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC this November.
