OnlySP: The problem with multiplayer for Assassin's Creed is it takes up time and space and very few gamers care about it.
But I like the Assassin's Creed Multiplayer. Infact to me, it is one of the best multiplayer experiences I've played this gen. Its fun, addictive and different from most of the shooters on the market.
I agree very great multiplayer fresh air from these fucking shooters.
It's extremely original. I really wouldn't expect them to drop it now.
Yeah instead of making a generic multiplayer mode, it actually made a very unique and fun multiplayer that I, someone who really doesn't care for most multiplayer games, loved. It's a stealthy and tense mode that just works perfectly. I hope they expand on it and make it even better.
It's a breath of fresh air in the shooter-infested multiplayer scene.
I agree the multiplayer is great! but looks like the only people disgree with u are shooter fuck tards real talk.
The multiplayer is garbage. And another thing just cause people disagree doesnt mean they just like shooters, they probably rather have a more better story drivin game. As you can probably tell brotherhood and revelations have had less acclaim then the first two and thats a fact. Btw that shooter statement makes you look very ignorant
I just wish they'd cut the multiplayer part out of the acheivements. Like in AC 1 and 2, I like my achievements to be in the story. But aside from that I'm not big into ac multiplayer and do worry about it taking away from the story. I would much prefer a story driven game.
How about they borrow from bioware & make the MP as part of the SP game where you are the new recruits on those missions, if they want to make it a bit more intresting.( jmt)
would love that and a sort of hoard mode or team assassination missions
If I'm not mistaken the whole backdrop on AC:Brotherhood's multiplayer was the fact that you are templars in the animus system training to hunt down Asassin's. So in that case it does somewhat fit in the whole AC storyline.
Spoiler: at the end of AC:R multiplayer story they want you to kill William Miles,Yes the father of desmond and leader of the modern assassins. I think there will be a separate co-op story mode like in splinter cell where you have to try to kill him.
I haven't really been interested in it but there are plenty who like it. Personally, I'd like to see some sort of coop mode.
...no. I really enjoy Revelations MP. It makes for a nice change to try to outsmart someone rather than just shoot someone in the face.
I love the multiplayer of brotherhood.Sneak attacking on people or playing the decoy to set up an ambush are totally awesome moments
The MP is very fun, alot different from all the other MP games we get. And they've been working on Assassins creed 3 for 3 years. Different teams were working on Brotherhood and revelations. I'm sure they will use those teams to bring the MP into AC3.
maybe they should sell it seperately id gladly just pay 30 bucks just for the singple player portion of it as thats all i'll likely touch anyways
Multiplayer should stay but needs a huge revamp. Maybe a free-roam multiplayer like RDR or coop missions like ME3. Either way, from what I've read on the newest gameinformer, AC3 is already my most anticipated game of 2012, cant wait!!
i dunno. i remember playing it only once for about 5 mins. it didnt interest me much. it had lesser no of players than crysis 2(PC)
They should leave the multiplayer there, but just keep the achievements/trophies single player only. It's annoying when games have multiplayer achievements/trophies, I don't know I guess it's just me. I'm sure some people might enjoy them, but they come off as a hassle to me. Anyways people just boost with their friends to get them, making them quite useless, and too easy to get.
I feel the same way. I enjoy getting trophies, i don't really mind MP trophies that much (the more trophies the better) but I hate MP trophies that requires you to do something specific for example the MP fire control trophy from MOH.
Yes please take that garbage out.
Garbage really so what do u play online ? O let me guess just fps games right ? AC multiplayer is not garbage fyi.
I definitely don't buy Assassins Creed for the MP. If it means more focus on the SP, by all means do away with the MP. The MP is a cool addition and can be fun at times but its really not THAT great for it to be a must -have for the series. Assassins Creed 2 was much better than Brother SP-wise and I'm pretty sure the MP took away focus from the story. I just got Revelations today and I hope the same doesn't apply.
It does tbh
Really? That sucks. Well its Ezio's last go around I might as well see for myself. Plus the whole Desmond and Altair (Altiar?) thing seems pretty interesting.
If they want to make this the real end to desmond's story, then they better focus on a good sp. We don't want a worsened sp for a mediocre mp.
They have different branches working on the game. Did you not see how many branches made Revelations?
They could make SP/MP by adding co-op, i wouldn't mind having some backup when doing missions.
Ubisoft has different branches who make the game, Montreal has been working on AC3 since AC2 came out. So it doesn't affect the story at all. Why don't people like the multiplayer anyways?
Nothing should be dropped from this game. NOTHING.
if you don't like it, don't play it. I guarantee that sales will fall if there is no MP. No matter how good the game is, SP games eventually end. And i'm not paying $60 when it will likely end after 20 hours (about 1-2 weeks). That's why I need the MP, so that I get my moneys worth. It's not Activision's fault that reclusive nerds with no skills get owned in the MP. If you cant handle the heat, then don't play the MP. As for me, I never really got into AC series until AFTER the MP was released. Also: I find it quite suspicious that every comment above that doesn't agree with the article seems to have about the same amount of dislikes as it does likes. Seems like the OP author as a lot of N4g accounts and will stop at no cost to under-mind the views of others who like the mp. WHY would you want to force the exclusion of mp from the game when so many people love it? It would kill this series's replay value if they ever cut out the mp.
