Ubisoft is apparently not adding any multiplayer modes that would put players against each other in the upcoming video game installments this year; Assassin’s Creed Unity and Assassin’s Creed Rogue.
First off, the latest announcement title, Assassin’s Creed Rogue, will not feature any multiplayer modes in general. This title will be a standalone singe-player experience only.
Though changing things up in the multiplayer gameplay, Ubisoft has announced Assassin’s Creed Unity will have four-player coop.
According to Joystiq, Ubisoft has stated the following:
With Assassin’s Creed Unity, the pillars of the franchise have evolved thanks to the potential of new generation consoles,” Ubisoft tells Joystiq. “With that evolution, we wanted to bring a new type of multiplayer experience, which was asked for by fans and which we wanted to explore for a long time: cooperative gameplay. Our aim was to have a seamless single-to-multi experience: This is why we are not opposing single player and co-op; we have ancestral missions dealing with Arno’s story and Brotherhood missions dealing with Arno’s duties towards the Brotherhood.
