Know More About Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag’s Multiplayer

By   /   2 years ago

The historical action adventure that everyone has been waiting for comes out in a week and luckily, some of the team members who have worked on the project decided to unfold some of the details regarding the game for us.

In case you didn’t know, the multiplayer mode of Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag has been advocated as a much better version than the previous.

Lead multiplayer game designer Tim Browne has given out extensive details about this specific mode in an interview with UbiBlog. The multiplayer mode is going be much more accessible as confirmed previously but Browne has insisted that it will not lose the core gameplay because they “don’t want to dumb down the game”.

An extensive tutorial will familiarize you with the game so that you know the back story. Wolfpack mode comes with a revenge story which introduces you to the game in a better way, according to the lead designer.

New menus are based on what the player would want them to do and when so that they are more comfortable.

If you are a core gamer you will certainly give value to the clan support that comes with AC4; you will be able to create your clans, invite people, promote them and measure performance on clan ladders.

When you are in the multiplayer mode you will be allowed to jump into private mode and choose the teams you want to start with. Browne agreed it “sounds really basic, but it wasn’t in before and we knew the fans really wanted it.”

The level caps have been increased from 50 to 55 and once you have passed the 55 level you will enter prestige loops which go up to 99. All that combined with unlocking items, titles and customization tools.

As a hint he suggested that “if you put in the effort to get to prestige 15, we (Ubisoft) want to give you something exclusive that you can only unlock at prestige 15.”

Remember, if you want to excel in the multiplayer mode, “at a base level Assassin’s Creed multiplayer is not about the amount of kills, it’s about the quality of the kills.”

As another tip he suggests that initially you go in with a team instead of going in alone guns ablaze. The game just might get too tough to handle if you are new and alone. Also, start with the mode that you do best at and go on to the hard-hitting ones after you have mastered some tactics.

Well, I don’t see anyone who wouldn’t want to learn the best of Edward Kenway.
