even with all the grief, if they put in Co-op correctly
it will be epic.
granted it looks like ubisoft is milking AC, in a way they are but if they are attempting co-op in such a large scale game, and have it still be openworld, they aren't exactly milking but taking the call of duty way and building upon what they have.
I honestly see this game as a test run to try out co-op, They are probably diverting a lot of their man hours to get co-op to work, so I won't be expecting some blockbuster story.
I loved the AC series, I've played em all except the standalone they just came out with, 1/2/brotherhood has amazing stories, maybe because we were still in AC fever when they came out? 3 was good, there were many things that felt "off" about it though, and same with 4, the gameplay is fun but seems very easy to get lost from the story.
give me feudal era AC game!
it'll be the new tenchu game haha, but they would have to do it right.
