The Assassin’s Creed franchise has settled in on a style of multiplayer that I find pretty interesting and fun. They haven’t really added a lot to the multiplayer of the different releases until Black Flag.
Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag multiplayer has added a new mode creator where you get to create the different game modes. Think of this like playing with swords and shotguns only in Halo, etc. When I played the demo it was all about pistols. No stealth assassinations, the only way to kill your target was to shoot them. It wasn’t easy either.
When you find your target you can freely aim and pull the trigger but you have a higher chance of missing your target. You can also lock on to your target, but this will notify your target that someone is trying to shoot them and they can flee or activate the few second shield and come at you for a stun.
One of the female developers was playing with her controller behind her back and was kicking everyone’s ass. I didn’t do too terribly great, I’ve always sucked at Assassin’s Creed multiplayer. I’m into the game for the single player campaign.
