I just wish that games would go back to doing more splitscreen, especially for consoles as thats meant to be a main feature!

Wait so is co-op open world free roam? I have been looking for the answer and haven't found it yet. Or is it just co-op missions and thats it?

I always find it funny that for certain games people complain about not having a co op mode, but now that they are starting to put that in a lot of the bigger games, people no longer want it??  Nothing ever makes you people happy lol.


I actually want the option to play coop in an AC game, not to mention in Far Cry 4 (as it was totally do able in FC3, the game was so big, why not??).  Of course you can go at AC:U solo but I can't wait to play with at least one buddy, all of the set up you can do going into a kill looks like so much fun :D

I hope this is for single player too as I dont like playing multiplayer with a game like this, I like to be on my own.

Singleplayer in multiplayer... no Ubisoft... no... this is not what we wanted, what we wanted is free-roam in multiplayer with side quests between friends so we never get bored, is it so hard to make?

I really hope this doesn't screw people who like to play alone. I love ac but I don't have many gamer friends and and none of my gamer friends are hardcore by any means to play a co op game on this level. And all my wolf pack exp has been worse than horrible because of stupid players.

@blursahnte I've made the call from the start that it'll be a drop in/drop out co-op system. It's always been about what developers don't say that gives you the clues. In the gameplay trailers so far you've seen the option to join co-op (brotherhood) missions and it was mentioned in this vid about brotherhood missions, and finally when talking about multiplayer they've only ever said, "can be played in paris" which may be true but if it was open world a developer couldn't help but brag about how you could play from the first mission to the last with 4 people so I'm backing my theory.

Besides it would be super hard to tell a personal story like they do with AC with friends hanging around, world events, going after 1 target the personally wronged you and not to mention the balance in the missions. Don't get your hopes up for the multiplayer to be free roam.

@nickpeck36 Co-op OPTION is is fine but it's never like that. They always cut some content out in favour of co-op and as I never play online I miss that content. (e.g. hacks in AC3, fleet in AC4)

@JDFS I kind of wanted no multiplayer full stop.  Multiplayer trophies should be optional for platinum at the very least

@JDFS We're the fans actually refering to something more like a co-op contratcs like in watch dogs in the style of :

competetive rooftop race .

Kill the contract target first .

Kill as many enemies as you can before the time runs out . 

something like that ?

@howiex89 @depman1972 ahh thanks, that will be cool, I know lots of people like mp and thats fine, playing racing multiplayer is great, but a game like resident evil, or assasins creed, last of us etc, I like to be alone lol.
