IncGamers reports Assassin's Creed 2 will have DLC, but more interestingly, fans might see multiplayer modes...
Not sure how multiplayer would work in Ass Creed. Co-op assassinations? Rooftop races?
as said below there might be races, get to x mark before the otha player and travel any way possible. or your the assassin and the other player is the mark and so forth. but i don't like how all the devs think that every game now needs multiplayer in order for it to be a good game ¬_¬
yeah multi sounds like a bad idea. if i were Ubi, i'd concentrate on just SP this time around since it wasn't all that great last time. in the 3rd one i'd introduce MP.
everyone seems to be adding multi-player to all their games, its not needed if the sp is good enough. Makes me think the devs themselves dont think their single-player campaign is good enough. Its not like Uncharted 2 where they have all of the same people working on the single player campaign and actually hired more people to create the multi-player/co-op, most third-party games will just have the same resources but split, half on single player and the others on multi player, so the SP campaign usually isnt as good as if the entire dev team were working on it.
Imagine having co-op for the level shown at E3 where the developer said the fires were set by other assassins and they played their part in the assassination plan. Would be kind of cool to have co-op efforts where everyone plays a certain part then the next moves once the other player has done their job. But versus mode....ehhhh. Rooftop races; could work but would be oh so lame. Maybe some mini game type stuff, maybe even assassination races to kill the target the fastest/first.
...coordinated assassination mode would be a good idea for multiplayer in AC2. All players have to correctly identify and assassinate a target within moments of each other and then fight their way back to a central location where they battle it out together against a couple of waves of guards. If you incorrectly mark and assassinate the wrong target you have to fight it out until your comrades come to back you up or you kill all your targets to help out your pals. Or a mode where you have to move an object to some locale on the map but each player can only carry the object so far before the next player must carry the object like a relay. However the person carrying the object cannot attack but can counter while others on your team are attackers or responsible for clearing a path for the object holder. Kind of like UC2 Plunder. As you can see for this type of game I'm thinking a cooperative mode would work much better than an all out competitive mode just because of the combat mechanics of this game.
it wdnt be as good!! multi aint always a good thing
Do an ala Demon's Souls type multiplayer game... im so gonna be like a Black Phantom!
Horse racing, anyone?
Interesting. I wonder if that will be PvE or PvP...
So many ways multiplayer can go. A hunter vs hunted mode, maybe. Or, yeah, races using the open-world of the city. Or co-op assassinations, or a race to a target, or... Bit worrying they haven't really decided this late in development though.
Good points, I doubt it will be very good.
I hope they release more info on this soon, sounds awesome.
is there DLC in the works if the game isn't release yet
i wouldn't really say it's "in the works". he said that they have some plans, so they most likely haven't started designing and coding it yet.
Take out two chapters from finished game, sell the game for $60. Then 2 weeks later sell the missing two chapters for $9.99. That's a 15% profit increase - for doing NOTHING!
Whats up with DLC these days. Why cant they just make 2 disc an put the rest in there.
Replay Value. Building hype upon announcement of extended content really does get the sales going.
That and the fact that wont sell their copies in order to know whats coming to DLC! By doing that they guarante sales of NEW copies and not USED copies!
of races, very mirrors edge-esque :) not a bad thing
multiplayer, they have screwed up, if not properly put into the game
if MP is in the game it all the sudden puts it on my radar for purchase. sorry i usually don't like SP portion of the game, i enjoy playing games against other people not a stupid AI controlled character.
I believe that the wires have gotten crossed up somewhere? From what the devs told me at E3 personally,was that they were already thinking of adding a MP format to the next game Assassins creed 3,not to AC2. They have talked about DLC for AC2,but the only talk I heard from them at E3 about MP was for AC3,if any MP at all.... They are discussing this for AC3 from what I was told.Sure something could be added,but as of now all I got was "MP possibilities" for AC3 as of now...
especially the modes mentioned in the article. i feel it could be very "unique" to the assassian's creed franchise. while i think they should be working more on single player, hey you cant go wrong with multiplayer. its nice that the devs are actually thinking of adding more to the experience not jus with dlc
Multiplayer as well(or firstly)
Co-op campaign would be fu**ing awesome!!
Damn why does every game have to get a multiplayer mode now.
