Assassin's Creed: Revelations Multiplayer Interview
Jane Douglas talks to Ubisoft producer Adreane Meuiner about the multiplayer in the latest Assassin's Creed game, Revelations.
A cloak and dagger game of hide and seek. Feel like a kid again... while slashing peoples throats. Gonna be fun.
I love the assassins creed series and have been a fan since the beginning. Watching Ezio go from 17 to 60 is like watching a kid grow up, its sad to see him so old. With multiplayer in Brotherhood, they did a great job, but they made it terribly unbalanced. The pursuer always gets the upper hand in a stun or kill situation and higher level players beat the crap out of lower levels. Also, poison is the biggest BS. It gives a 200 point bonus for a more discreet and easier way to kill someone. Just another way to give an advantage to higher level players.

The only thing I dont like hearing about this new multiplayer is the Call of Duty: Black Ops style credit system. I dont want to have to spend credits on EVERYTHING in order to get what I want. Call me traditional, but I like my person getting stronger every level, not scrounging and saving credits like a hobo on christmas....
@henke1313 Yeah, but your goal is actually to hide from your pursuer, not to kill/stun him or anything. So if you fail to remain anonymous and he manage to find you, he deserves to kill you, although still you are given a second chance to escape by running and hiding... However, I can't imagine in what ways the stun mechanism could be improved. I mean, it must be either you or him. You can't actually be equal... But the problem is theirs I guess. :P Btw, I can't freaking wait for this game!! And why all good games come out at November?? Which one to get first?
The multiplayer is so great but there are some things that i think need to be refined about AC brotherhood multiplayer in the next game: 1-Score bonus isn't bad but it's even essential when it comes to the type of the kill and other things in the game but sometimes high lvl player can win the game by perk and skills that give score bonus 2-They should narrow the gap between players who play alot and players who play from time to time and i talk about some skills that challenges give and they are great advantage. 3-Perks and skills slots should be available at level 1 with some simple skills and perks. And i think balancing the skills will be good so if i play for the first time i can survive against an old player. These things just for refining but the game has a good deal of balance that makes it one of the best multiplayer games for me and unique of course. She also said something about unlocking abilities with in-game credits i don't know if that's going to be a good idea.
First of all, I like the new characters, the are cooler than the BH ones... Second of all, I really hope they improve the stun mechanics, because in BH, if you noticed a persuer in wanted, your only option is to run and hide, unless you camp, since an assassination outwins a stun, which makes the mortality-rate when youre in first place skyhigh
Can't wait. The multiplayer on Brotherhood was some of the most fun I have had online in years. Great concept. The only thing that makes me nervous is that I saw one of the characters using a bomb/mine in multiplayer. Not sure that is a good idea.
@sflowers539 it is getting old but i think they wanted to complete the story of ezio fully and close his chapters because they've made ezio such an important part of the story technically brotherhood and reverlation are not new games at all more like expansions as they were released in a year of each other and ubisoft have probably got two diffrent teams working on these AC's and number three since AC2 so you canbe pretty sure that number 3 will be something entily new and awesome :)
I loved 2, and the MP in 3 was fun, but I skipped the single player in 3. Even though the core game was improved it didn't feel new - I felt like I'd been there and done that for too many hours too recently and it didn't advance the story in any meaningful way so I stopped. I'll wait for the reviews on this just to see if they really advance the story line or if it's just more ACII again without enough plot advancement to warrant doing more of the same for so many hours.
@sflowers539 I understand where your coming from but I think the reason they focus so much on Ezio is because his role plays a key factor in the Assassin's Creed Universe but I do hope they change characters and settings in Assassin's Creed III.
I am still pissed over the same character/settings from the two most recent games to get excited for this, it is time to redesign the series like Bioshock is doing.
I didn't get into the Brotherhood mp. I wanted epic sword/blade fights. I would like to see a dm mode where u know where your enemy is so all thats left to do is prove whose the better ninja or swordfighter.
i hope the the customization of your character has a wide range of choices because they did mention they would include that and it will make everyones player more unique
