I think since Assassins creed unity is gonna be co-op multiiplayer it should also unless they do plan this have a split screen mode the same as multi player but for people in the house hold. I would like if someone had an answer or if they could support my suggestion for the game because many would enjoy this. If a directer could respond I would be happy with that.
Thank you for the support

I would love offline co-op but i understand why they didn't go for it...unfortunately, offline co-op is dying...even games that have a long history with offline multiplayer are now abandoning it in favor of online

I would say I miss couch co-op, but I game on PC so I actually can't do that regardless.

But I do think it's nice for a more social environment.

Why organise for your friends to come over to your place when you can talk and play through online connectivity?

And if you're friends happen to be in your house, why game with them anyway? das fo kidz

Siblings...

Oh yeah...

I don't think sibling play is a priority for publishers... apart from like sports games and stuff.

Plus spit screen was annoying for me, it just looked cluttery and weird....

That's why I said it's dying and i understand why it's dying...offline multiplayer means less machines and games sold, online multiplayer means more machines and games sold

I loved the good old days of offline co-op. Every now and then I like to boot up the dusty old PS2, mainly whenever we have family gatherings, and my cousins and I kill the time with those ancient low poly relics from a bygone era. Acme Arsenal and Tekken 5 (not really co-op but still a damn good 2 player game) are particular favourites of mine.

Nintendo is the only real source of local co-op these days...

Mario Party, Mario Kart, Super Smash Bros, Dance Dance Revolution, Street Fighter, Goldeneye.... were some of them. Good times...

BB & T:TB was unfortunately one of the last remaining games still in working order that I had on PS1. Sadly all of them were either misplaced or scratched and damaged beyond repair over the years, rendering the console virtually useless. Oddly enough, I still have my dad's ancient Sega Genesis and a slew of its titles (still functional) safely packed away in the loft, cartridge games seem to stand the test of time far better than disc based media.

I loved the 007 games. If I'm not mistaken, Ratchet and Clank up your arsenal also had an offline co-operative mode, though I played very little of the game and my memory's a tad sketchy.

Tony Hawk.

I played that on split-screen. Think you could do split screen on GTA too or I be trippin?

Split Screen+Open World/Sandbox never really works out

While I would really love local co-op (my best friend and I both love the franchise, but he plays PC and I play PS), I see why they avoided it. Aside from the processing issues that accompany split-screen, it would be challenging to play AC split-screen unless you had a very large TV indeed.

I suppose in a similar vein they could do some slight of hand via PS Remote Play.

Not split screen (well, not in the unmodded version of the game anyway). In San Andreas you could go to particular points on the map to activate local multiplayer mode which allowed a second player to join in, but both of the players shared the same screen and were forced to stay close by or things would get kinda messy. It was a nightmare when two people both had the jet pack cheat activated.

That's actually not a bad idea. It's akin to the companion apps a lot of games and systems support.

I'm not exactly a big fan of split-screen co-op because it makes the screen appear distorted and cluttered and it can be quite confusing at times. However, I did get used to it over the years. There was this one time I played CoD MW2 against my friends and it wasn't a fun experience at all, because they are not used to split-screen gameplay and I kept on killing them very easily :p

It would have been cool to play with my brother sometimes, but I can understand why they're opting for online-only. Besides, AC probably wouldn't play too well in splitscreen since you have to watch all sides for parkouring and combat. Splitscreen works best with FPS's, IMO.

I don't think it's possible.
On PC it probably would be, but on consoles not. Think about it, you would have to run the whole game 2 times on 1 console to do a proper split-screen coop.
Not even if Coop would be only 2 players would that work. The world is just too huge, even nextgen doesn't have those resources.
