How would you feel about a Multiplayer Free Roam mode in AC3? It would basically work the same way it worked in Red Dead Redemption. You could explore the entire map with up to a certain amount of people, you could kill whoever/whatever you want (no desync, just guard notoriety, significantly overwhelming), and just kind of explore. Personally, I have spent countless hours just riding around with friends in RDR. This would also allow for a method of making Machinima. Ideally it would be cool to customize your own assassin, but we'd likely have to settle from a selection of pre-made models from the single player, which would be expected and fine. Any thoughts?

How about they fix the existing MP first?

I would rather have this than a game mode we've already had twice with likely similar issues, with the only discernible difference being the location and characters.

Nah, if this happened, it'd have to be an extra, not a replacement. It's not good enough to replace the current MP which, despite it's bugs and flaws, is still pretty **** awesome.

Free Roam does not fit the AC formula.

Red Dead Redemption Free Roam is still full to this day. At least on PS3 it is. Both hardcore and normal free roams are always full, no matter what time of day you play. Free Roam is pretty great in RDR and the only limit to its possibilities is your imagination. I would love to see a similar thing in AC3.

If so then then it woud have some sort of hideout missions like RDR did or it would be boring, but can't really see it working.

Well, yeah. It wouldn't just be a giant map with nothing to do. Exploring can only go so far. There would obviously be raids, assaults on fortresses, retrieval missions, escorts, etc. In Creed lore, Assassin's and Templars both worked in teams, so there's no reason why it couldn't work. It's basically the same thing as co-op, except you get to choose when you want to do missions, when you want to stop doing missions, or when you want to avoid missions altogether and just screw around. It would take some effort clearly, but it's definitely possible.

...why? You don't like playing with friends? You don't like exploring? You don't like freedom to screw around in games? You don't want development of this mode to take away from other modes? You don't think it would compliment the precedented Assassin's Creed play-style? You don't like the idea of co-op modes in general?

Eh i guess I will seriously respond to you.... yes I like playing with friends, look at my sig and see that I am a leader of TWO clans, so obviously I like playing with friends. I have freedom to screw around now in ACB without free roam.

and to as to why i havent been banned yet, I don't know why honestly lol, not for lack of trying i'll tell ya. I was suspended for two weeks once for starting a religious/race war but thats about it.
