Assassin’s Creed Unity Ditches Competitive Multiplayer

By   /   Jun 11, 2014

We are sure this is going to get mixed reactions but the upcoming Assassin’s title, Assassin’s Creed Unity is not going to feature a competitive multiplayer mode.

The news was confirmed alongside other details at the Twitch Stream yesterday by the Senior Producer of the game, Vincent Pontbriand.

Ever since the 2010 title Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood, competitive multiplayer mode has been a part of every major title that the series has had.

Coming to think of it, the feature was getting kind of tacked-on.

The example of Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag is pretty clear where the multiplayer mode kind of died away pretty fast. Now we surely don’t want something like that in Assassin’s Creed Unity, right?

Of course, one more reason for that was that Black Flag was released to six different platforms, and obviously, the community was divided. However, the fact of the matter is letting go off the competitive multiplayer will also allow the developers to put more focus on the co-op features.

It is evident from the trailers that we have seen at E3 that co-op is going to be of value to the game, there were four characters that it showed off.

On the other hand, the competitive multiplayer mode of Assassin’s Creed has always been a unique experience; it always had something different to offer. Despite the fact that Ubisoft didn’t think it was worthwhile to keep it in the game, the feature will still be missed by a number of us.

What do you think, was it a good decision on the developer’s part to ditch the competitive multiplayer in Assassin’s Creed Unity?
