Ubisoft Explains Lack of Competitive Multiplayer in Assassin’s Creed: Unity

Ubisoft looking to further evolve the pillars of the franchise with co-op gameplay.

Assassin's Creed Unity

We already know that Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed: Unity won’t feature competitive multiplayer and will instead introduce co-op gameplay, with up to four friends teaming together during the anarchy of the French Revolution.

In a statement to Joystiq, Ubisoft explained just why it’s skipping multiplayer this time around. “With Assassin’s Creed Unity, the pillars of the franchise have evolved thanks to the potential of new-generation consoles. 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.”

And why doesn’t Assassin’s Creed: Rogue have competitive multiplayer? We’ll just chalk it up to the company being lazy. Assassin’s Creed: Unity will be out this October for Xbox One, PS4 and PC while Assassin’s Creed: Rogue releases this November for Xbox 360 and PS3.
