Multiplayer Assassin's coming to iPhone

Kill up to three close friends via wi-fi.

A new Assassin's Creed spin-off is currently in development for the iPhone.

Titled Assassin's Creed II: Multiplayer, it will let you and up to three other players race around Renaissance Italy trying to murder each other. You'll need to utilise six different weapons and your very best crowd-blending skills to stay alive.

A wi-fi connection will be required to play as the action happens in real-time. You'll be able to check your standing on the global leaderboard and post achievements on Facebook.

There's no word on a price or a release date yet. In the meantime Assassin's Creed II: Discovery is already available in the App Store, priced at £5.99.
