From an interview with a developer from ubisoft, there will be no multiplayer for AC: Syndicate. Would you guys wait longer for the game if they will incorporate it?

I'm okay with the lack of multiplayer. I've never been too crazy about multiplayer in the AC series.

Don't really care. Multiplayer held Unity back, though the idea behind it was alright.

TBH I think It made it last longer.

I honestly don't like MP anyway unless it's free-roaming with actual real-life friends. I quickly get bored replaying the same 8 missions over and over with randoms. So no, I don't care that there's no MP.

Never want it, never play it and never plan to try it..

I'm just old school soloist who don't want other people in his games.

Sure, I Agree with having a better campaign OFC but I feel like they should keep the multiplayer aspect in the side like blackflag, but also keep elements from the co-op in Unity while improving it. Don't forget that this was an entirely new multiplayer system! I loved being able to play with friends, and that's when I had the most fun.

Nah, I really like multiplayer and co-op games but I don't think it fits on AC. Unity had a nice idea with the co-op but the implementation was terrible. IF they made a separate co-op storyline like in Far Cry, then I'd totally wait some more time for it.

I would wait longer for the single player being polished.

If they brought back PVP, I would be into it, make it dark like AC3 and they're onto a winner. But co-op, no thank you.

SMH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

LOL at ubisoft taking a step back. LOL at people getting multiplayer mixed up with co-op. Co-op in unity was basically wolf pack mode in single player.

Again, what genius at ubisoft thought it would be a good idea to cut the very thing that expanded the life of the game? People are still playing revelations, AC3, AND AC4 multiplayer till this day. They just released AC4 for free on Xbox 360 and the community just blew back up. I just hopped off of there today, it's still fun. We play multiplayer long after we finish the game. Lets be real here, Unity and rogue were pretty darn short. Nobody even plays them anymore lol. Now if they had multilayer(with updates and events) we would still be playing the games like 2 years from now.

I kinda feel cheated for almost paying $70.00 for a game with low replay value. $10.00 D.L.C that could have easily been apart of the original game. With no high replay value multiplayer.

That's just me though. I like to spend money on games with high replay value. Games that I'm gonna be playing for a long time. Especially at the ridiculous price of almost $70.00 for one freaking game. You buy 4 games(or 3 with D.L.C) and you have a new system SMH.

Never really been into AC's Multiplayer or Multiplayer in general, so I'll be just fine without it.

tbh I'm pretty sure if they would continue to make ac multiplayer on a yearly basis then it would to be too much on the team. I think that the annecy team took a break from it because they LITERALLY started on a multiplayer right after the release of the current one so they spent more or less ONE YEAR on development. That's an insanely short amount of time for a AAA game, you'd think it would wear them out at some point.

Imo It would be best if they just made a separate game, a standalone multiplayer would be the best way to make a successful competitive multiplayer.
Why don't they take a break from tackling people missions?
Listening in on people conversations mission?
Poorly re skinning character models from previous games?
OBVIOUSLY reusing animations from previous games?
Not properly beta testing their games before launch?
Not addressing issues and blaming them on us until we start a riot?
Not releasing a game on a yearly basis?

^Highly doubt multiplayer is a big issue with all that going on^

Nope. I felt it was an unneeded addition that added little to the series at hand. I buy AC to play the singleplayer, and have done so since the first game.

05-13-2015, 02:56 PM
I pretty much agree with everything you just said. :O

And here I am in this forum thinking no one gets why the multiplayer was such a important and great addition to ac, There's literally nothing else like it out there.

But like i said in my previous post a standalone game would make the competitive multiplayer a masterpiece.

ps. i dig your profile pic xD
Man a lot of the post you see are from a bunch of teachers pets and casual gamers lol. They are the reason why ubisoft has gotten so lazy and disconnected. Hardcore long time gamers like myself tend to tell it like it is and don't sugarcoat nothing. We don't post as much as the teachers pets do so I understand why you feel this way lol. Also, a lot of us just don't know these forums exist. They don't advertize it. I only found these forums because AC4 told me to sign up for "initiates"(which also was rushed and a big failure) which led me here whenever the site messed up.

I don't know about having a stand alone multiplayer though. Don't think that will work for AC. A game like C.O.D, now that would work because people don't even play single player anyway lol.

If you played AC4 multiplayer about 4 months after it's release then you can feel the pain in my avi and sig lol. These people had the nerve to tell thousands of us that it wasn't their servers, it's our connections smh. They did this for months before they finally admitted that it was them and somewhat fixed the problem after like 2 patches. Anyway, I honestly don't see how people call themselves fans of the series and never even had any interest in the FUN AS HELL multiplayer with super high replay value. Like why wouldn't you want to take your assassins skills to the next level and compete with other assassins around the world?

This reminds me of people who get C.O.D and GTA 5 just for the multiplayer and barley touch the main game or don't play it at all. Darn near $70.00 for only half the experience..... ... LOL!!! no, not me.

I've never liked the multiplayer modes in the older games and the coop part in Unity so I will not miss it this year. I'm very glad Ubi are putting their resources on creating a great single player experience without companion app and online stuff. I think the strongest aspect of the franchise is the storytelling and the singe player campaigns. The multiplayer from the past felt like a separate game-mode that was just there. And the Coop didn't integrate that with Arnos story and it only created big plot holes in both the single player campaign and the coop missions stories, even though Ubi claimed everyone was Arno and that we were experiencing his memories when he worked along with other assassin.

So I'm voting no to this since I'm favoring the single player campaign higher than the multiplayer/coop aspects.

I'd wait another year for some next-gen style competitive multiplayer, but co-op can go jump in a lake

Not a fan of multiplayer, so usually I'd say no I don't think it would justify a longer wait... but I'll probably pass on Syndicate anyway so couldn't give a ****.

I can't say I'm heartbroken they left it out this time. I did enjoy Wolfpack in 3 and 4, though. If they had something like that, I wouldn't mind. That being said, I'm glad it's single player only.

05-23-2015, 07:13 PM
Would I wait? No. And I haven't, seeing as how I've already pre-ordered.

And I'm going with the crowd here: I don't dig multiplayer/ co-op anything, much less my favorite franchise which to me, like Splinter Cell, is all about being the lone wolf. When I play,it's my "me time." Although some of the co-op stuff in Unity was so-so, overall, just gimme some quiet time, a controller, some kinda brewed beverage, and I'm good:)

05-24-2015, 06:33 PM
I like the idea but unless they add a less laggy co-op and heists (which I personally) loved, a mass-open world free roam (like GTA5) or a invasion system (like Watch_Dogs or Dark Souls), I don't really care about the multiplayer. I liked it when they first introduced it in Brotherhood and played it a lot but since then, I've never touched it

Defo yes.

Multiplayer increases a games lifespan and the AC multiplayer is unique and very fun. Most people don't have the patience for it which I understand.. still, Ubisoft are shrinking the AC community with this move imo.

I think the lack of multiplayer is a good move-

I would rather wait a year and get a great story than a watered down multiplayer.

So no, I would prefer the focus on story plots.

Lol as if the majority of people buy the games only for the mp... if that were true, how do explain the first 2 games, which were... single player only. I think you might be playing the wrong franchise if you buy it only for the mp.
