    Hi,

    Im just about to buy this game, but had a few questions about the multiplayer part of it.

    Are lots of people playing the multiplayer?
    Is it quick to find players for a game?
    Are people playing the Da Vinci Disappearance DLC multiplayer modes more than the original?
    Is the multiplayer something you can keep playing for months/years? or is it only for a short while till everyone moves on to another game?

    And finally, is the multiplayer worth the money?

    Thanks!

    Matchmaking sucks,Probably more people play Da Vinci Disappearance than the original and from me ACB:MP only took me 6 months then quit and moved on, I just play time to time now.

    *Yes people play it a lot
    *I don't know about the Da Vinci Disappearance thing
    *I will be playing it for as long as it runs
    The multiplayer takes some skill unlike most games. I love it, but if you're buying the game just for the multiplayer just don't buy it.

    Hello. I cannot answer for the whole community, but I will gladly say my own opinions.

    Are lots of people playing the multiplayer?
    It depends on how you define "lots of people". But from my point of view (I play on PS3) there are many players, even after the PSN outage. You rarely see the same username two days in a row.

    Is it quick to find players for a game?
    On weekends, yes. But it can be tough during weekdays. Some modes (like Alliance) are practically dead by that time. But it's relatively easy to find Wanted and Manhunt matches. And it can sometimes be easier to find player matches. So if you don't need to fill up your templar scores (by playing ranked matches), player matches is the choice for you.

    Are people playing the Da Vinci Disappearance DLC multiplayer modes more than the original?
    I bought that DLC a coulpe of days ago and I think people have changed from Wanted to Assassinate. But if you really want to play Wanted, you can switch DLC's. Escort is kinda dead but you can find a game sometimes.

    Is the multiplayer something you can keep playing for months/years? or is it only for a short while till everyone moves on to another game?
    Yes! I've been playing ACB since the release day and I've been hooked ever since. It's really innovative and lets you experiment with a lot of different tactics and abilities so it never gets boring. It's still about 5 months until AC Revelations is released and I think many people will keep playing ACB even after that day (but I think that the amount of active players will drop drastically).

    And finally, is the multiplayer worth the money?
    I don't really know. There is always a lot of lag, but it varies between different sessions. Matchmaking is kinda dumb, especially when you have a party and try to join another game. But it is playable, and fun. If you're looking for a good time and don't mind about lag, then yes it's woth the money. And don't forget the singleplayer!

    if you wanna buy it for pc, dont do it if its just for the multi-player (single player is still great). not enough people play the mp nymore on pc, especially since the leaderboards are broken.

    When I bought the game, the jerky camera movement in the single player turned me off that mode for a good 4 weeks and I played multiplayer exclusively during that period. I wasn't planning on going back to the single player (though eventually I did), and during that time, I felt the multiplayer alone was worth buying the game.

    Multiplayer is great and has kept the game on the top of my list for months.

    But please don't overlook the the awesome (and quite long) single player campaign as well.
