SegmentNext - 2014 saw the release of two Assassin’s Creed titles, one for current-gen and another for last-gen. However, in its pursuit to deliver both games on time, Assassin’s Creed: Unity turned out to be a poorly optimized title.
They seriously need to get rid of that Ubisoft formula. It makes every single IP of theirs look similar. And The Division should have Offline mode. They are shutting many people out by doing that.
"And The Division should have Offline mode. They are shutting many people out by doing that." Yeah and Gran Turismo should have a non racing mode for those who don't like racing games /s Division is supposed to be an MMO and I want them to take full advantage of the benefits that online brings. For those who don't like online experiences, that's cool, just move on and play something different. Of course I could eat my own words and it could turn out into Destiny which is a glorified coop game but I really want Ubi to see their vision through and hopefully learn from Bungie's mistakes and create a compelling blend of shooter and mmo.
Its a MMO you cant go offline. A massively multiplayer online game (also called MMO and MMOG) is a multiplayer video game which is capable of supporting large numbers of players simultaneously. By necessity, they are played on the Internet. Facepalm thoes not buying it if needs be online only.
I know, the hypocrisy is hilarious. So many on here are calling out for artistic integrity, letting game developers see their vision through and create the game they want to and yet there are those moaning when they decide to make an online only game.
So now it's always online? LOL No thanks.
It's always been that.
There will be offline mode what ive heard
"What could go wrong?" - Ubisoft Let me tell you...
Think I'll pass if there is no offline mode.
This logic is flawed on so many levels that it's just sad. What's wrong with an online game if it fully takes advantage of the benefits that a huge connected world can bring? Granted I'd understand people passing if it's like Sim City or Diablo 3 where both could have easily worked with offline modes but essentially asking for an offline mmo is stupid.
I don't understand why people would pass if there's no offline mode..How often do you disconnect you Xbox/PS/PC from the internet? Most likely never. Just play the game solo if you want to, you aren't forced to play with a group.
Very hyped for this game. The midnight release will be epic for this. OT: I dont underestand the people who pass on a game that is online only. To me playing online only makes the game better as long as you're not having server or connection issue. But we knew this game was going to be a MMO from the start so saying you'll pass now is ridiculous. I have faith that this'll be an amazing game so they're the ones missing out.
