Do you think it would be a good idea to put online multiplayer in the next Assassins Creed?

Someone give me a nice cup of how the fuck would that work?

Going with no, about forty seven billion times.

One on One assassin battle that would be awesome

the only thing i could think working  if there are two assassins. one knows where the other is, and the other has to get to a location somewhere on the other side of the map. 
but i dunno.

Capture the 100 flags mode would be fun.

Well the only multiplayer i can think of is One team Protects the target, the defenders are stronger and better equipped but slower and less agile maybe, while the assassins are out to kill the target and are faster and weaker. Even this sounds pretty bad though so i would say no.

I would say that it would be neat if there was a race to see who could kill a designated target first. Like in that mission where the crazy preacher dude is on top of that really high tower, and the assassin's start off from two separate points in the city and have to find the quickest way up to him.
Other than that, I can't really think of anything.

the mechanics just wouldn't work well with two players interacting especially with combat.

10 guards, 1 assassin. Assassin! You must capture the (insert item here) without being killed by the guards (who can respawn) and in a certain time limit. 
Sounds good to me. And online is ALWAYS good, because it will add longetivity for alot of people, and if you don't like it, you don't have to play it!

I think this guy's avatar explains my face when I saw that question.

Short answer, no. Long answer, please god no.

#14 Posted by mrcool11 (524 posts) -

some sort of co-op-y gameplay might be kinda neat, but i dont think itll work

#15 Posted by ImperiousRix (3095 posts) -

Noooo no no no...

No no...

No, it should remain a single player experiance,  
Some games just don't need Multiplayer, as a tack on, same goes for Multiplayer having a tacked on single player.

#17 Posted by Time_Lord (792 posts) -

No because then they would put online achievements in it.

#18 Posted by goodwood (622 posts) -

adding a multiplayer would take away time money and people from the single player dev teams so  no.

Also,it would be kind of cool if there was something like you're all in a building and one dude is an assassin, so people try to figure out who the assassin is and in the meantime the assassin tries to dispatch the people as sneakily as possible.

The game really doesn't seem suited for a multiplayer mode. I think it's a really bad idea.

#21 Posted by Venatio (4679 posts) -

Only if its a Co-op mode, nothing else is needed, I just want my lengthy single player

#22 Posted by Aljosa15 (352 posts) -

Not in a billion years. No offence, but that's a very stupid question. Not every game needs to have tacked on co-op.

#23 Posted by Undeadpool (5335 posts) -

I can't even BEGIN to express the no.

I'd rather have an incredible single player experience than a great single player and mediocre multiplayer. I don't think Assassin's Creed 2 would do well with multi, it's a very solitary game.

Multiplayer in Assasin's Creed would work fine; I don't know what everyone is complaining about.  Co-op, races, deathmatch, etc.  Remember, the next game will probably be in more modern times and probably have guns, so I could definitely see it as a possibility.  Of course, it would totally screw up the fiction, but it's only a game after all.

#25 Posted by iam3green (14368 posts) -

i can see a no on that. i don't think it would be any good to do that. uncharted 2 has multiplayer and peopel said it would not work out. look how good that is now.

#26 Posted by TheGremp (2082 posts) -

In a general sense, no. In most cases I could imagine, it would destroy the immersion and silent beauty of the series. But, I could go for some Crackdown-esque 2-player free-roam with friends.

#27 Posted by pause422 (6290 posts) -

No. No is the only answer. If your answer isnt no, you are wrong. Just no.

#28 Posted by Grilledcheez (4017 posts) -

No way

#29 Posted by MattyFTM (14677 posts) -

If they can make it work without significantly changing the gameplay mechanics, then sure, why not? Co-op could probably work, but I can't imagine it being easy to get those mechanics to work in competitive multiplayer. With some interesting & slightly abstract thinking, I suppose they could get it to work.
