I agree with you guys that said you’ve never heard anyone talk about game modes. Everyone talks about what’s going to happen to Desmond. So I think it’s a bit disheartening to hear that so much of the game has been stripped down and that there might be more of a focus on the MP.
That being said, I put in a lot more hours in the ACB multiplayer than I have in the single-player campaign for the rest of the games combined. And I had the rank to show for it. But I would’ve traded all of the hours of that game time if I could have had the next single-player installation sooner. I mean, I play the multiplayer as filler until the next game comes out, to be honest.
Although I do know that at midnight on release day, the MP is already packed. On average, it takes me about 3 days to finish an Assassin’s Creed game in its entirety, with all of the side missions and collectables parts, and after I get on and start playing the MP, there are plenty of people who haven’t even touched the SP. There were people months after Rev was released who still hadn’t touched the SP or completed it. It’s strange to me.
I know it happens in games like CoD, where the average person doesn’t know what the storyline is about, but in AC… it’s weird. To me at least.
