Another one of the games we were lucky enough to get our hands on was the online multiplayer portion of Assassin’s Creed.
The mode that we were able to play was essentially a large game of cat and mouse. At any point during the match you would be attempting an assassination on another player, while being hunted by another player. If you were in first place (points given by kills, kill streaks, types of kill, etc) you would have up to 3 other players trying to find and assassinate you.
You could do the usual Assassin’s Creed tricks to hide from your enemy such as blending into the crowd, using smoke, and using a disguise. Once an enemy has found and is chasing you, the game will prompt you to run away. The same game elements apply here as well. Hiding in haystacks, running across rooftops, blending in, or running through certain doors that close behind you leaving the “assassinator” behind a locked door.
In all honesty this was a lot of fun. Being on the other end of the assassination isn’t anything that we have really been able to experience until now. When you suddenly have 3 assassin’s hot on your trail and you are running across rooftops trying not to die all while still trying to keep your kill streak alive is an adrenaline-pumping experience to say the least.
We played a near-complete version but the developers did tell us that they are planning a lot of new content. This will be amazing I can almost guarantee it.
