During its presentation at this year's Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), Ubisoft finally unveiled Assassin's Creed Origins. Contrary to popular belief though, it will only offer a single-player feature. This is definitely a huge upset to those who have been expecting a multiplayer experience.
According to PCGamer, the very own director of Assassin's Creed Origins named Ashraf Ismail confirmed during the aforementioned event that the game will not offer an online multiplayer feature. Instead, it will be about having a single-player experience. This despite the studio still plans to add some online functionalities.
It is worth noting that prior to the big reveal, most players have already been expecting for an online multiplayer experience. In fact, these were the very content of speculations and rumors for months. Sadly though, Ubisoft will not venture to such direction.
GameRant notes that Assassin's Creed Origins will rather focus on campaign experience, taking fans throughout the story of Barek and how the brotherhood of assassins was created. In short, it will be dive to how the story of the game was born. Regardless, it is still shaping to be an interesting title, or at least that is what others think.
Despite no online multiplayer feature, the studio will not entirely abandon any online features for Assassin's Creed Origins. While Ismail did not entirely go into detail, he assured the fans that, in one way or another, the single-player campaign will be enhanced with online features. For fans who have been since the beginning of the franchise, this is not really a surprising element. Players then were able to manage a fleet of ships, unlock various stuff and head on to several missions around the globe, among others.
Assassin's Creed Origins is slated to hit the shelves come September. It will be made available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC. Ubisoft promised to release more details about the game in the next few weeks or so.
