Assassin's Creed 4 will not have multiplayer naval battles

Ubisoft has ruled out multiplayer naval battles in Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag. (Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360)

Not surprised if they are anything like the naval battles in AC3 it would be hard to render waves for 8 players online.

Even for PCs and next-gen consoles?

And why would it have to be 8-player online? Even 2v2 or 1v1 would be a lot of fun.


Well, not that I'm complaining. The less emphasis on MP, the more able they'll be to deliver a solid SP experience. Uh, theoretically.

It s to keep everyone happy.

I would expect PS3, 360 and Wii U players complain about not getting an online mode and still be charged the same price.

I am sure it can be done further into the next generation but not with cross gen games. There is still a learning curve on the new consoles so AC5 might be able.

This is a huge missed opportunity.

I know right, the naval stuff in AC3 was pretty awesome, its the ONLY positive thing I have to say about the game

Now just remove the MP completely and everything will be sweet.

Or you could remove yourself from mp instead of such ludicrous statements .

I agree, MP never fit well into the AC universe.

It was forced.

I think it would be a great idea, there would actually be some strategical thinking invloved.

I miss multiplayer games like that.

You can't please everyone.

Good, I can now buy it used without worrying about paying for online pass.

This changes nothing.
