Assassin’s Creed: Origins won’t have multiplayer (but does have online features)

Assassin’s Creed: Origins will have online features, but they won’t be in the form of multiplayer, Ubisoft recently confirmed.

Director Ashraf Ismail made the confirmation as part of YouTube’s E3 Coliseum last week, saying only that the online features would “enhance” the game’s single-player experience.

Ismail added that Origins will have another playable protagonist rather than Bayek, the character shown off during the game’s E3 reveal. The additional character will be playable in certain segments, Ismail said.

The last Assassin’s Creed title to feature PvP multiplayer was Assassin’s Creed IV: Black FlagOrigins is being developed by the same team who worked on Black Flag.

Assassin’s Creed: Origins heads to Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4 on 27 October.
