Ever since the release of Assassin’s Creed Unity, the franchise lacked an actual multiplayer mode. Unity featured coop missions that were highly enjoyable but the mode was overshadowed by a plethora of issues in the single player mode. Still, it was not something developer should have ditched in the coming games. Now, with Assassin’s Creed Origins on the verge of release, one wonders if devs have anything that remotely resembles a multiplayer mode.
Well, the good news is that it does. According to Ashraf Ismail, Assassin’s Creed Origins has “connected features” that will enrich the player’s experience.
However, what kind of features and how will they add to the value of the game remains to be seen. Ashraf was reluctant to share more at this point but these will reveal themselves later in the campaign. Speaking with SegmentNext, he stated:
While Assassin’s Creed Origins is primarily a single player experience, it will also contain some connected features designed to enrich players’ sessions – we will detail them later in the campaign.
Assassin’s Creed Origins is releasing on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC later this year. While a full fledged multiplayer mode might not be a part of the game, developers are promising a much better AI this time around.
The game also reportedly runs at Full HD/60FPS on Xbox One X. Ubisoft and Microsoft have an exclusive partnership for a 4K version of the game on Xbox One X. But it would be interesting to see if the game can pull off 60FPS for those without a 4K display.
