Interesting news for fans of the Assassin’s Creed series

January 15, 2010

Ubisoft has announced that they will be releasing a new, stand alone “episode” into our greedy palms sometime between April of this year and March 2011. And they’re also saying that it “will be the first in the series to have an online multiplayer mode.”

Now, I remember feeling disappointed that the first title didn’t have a multiplayer mode in it. But to be honest with you, I’m not sure if I think it would be a good idea anymore. I was thinking about it off and on during work today, and I’m not sure how it would work, or IF it would work at all. Does that story really NEED 2-4 over powered assassins running around in the same world at the same time? Seems like overkill. Trying to sneak up on each other would be a lame waste of time, and I’ve never been a fan of time trials. Why race to see who can complete an objective first? Racing through objectives prevents you from fully appreciating the richness of the environments in my opinion. And while “free run” races might be fun, I’d get sick of it in a day or two and go right back to my FPS games.

What do you think about the franchise’s multiplayer potential?

Here’s the link to full (though mostly hearsay) article: http://www.gamespot.com/news/6246318.html?om_act=convert&om_clk=hot-stories&tag=hot-stories;title;1
