Assassin’s Creed 4: next-gen release to have online single-player features

Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag will feature connected single-player features, according to creative director Jean Guesdon. The features will ensure that you will be connected to the game’s community even when playing solo.

In a leaked internal Q&A with Guesdon acquired by AGB, he said, “ACIVBF will also be available on Next Gen consoles. In addition to improved graphics and physic, Next Gen versions will bring to the players new connected features allowing them to feel that even if they remain “Single Player” it will be better to be a “Single Connected Player”.

“I mean, that Next Gen Consoles will allow players to have a solo experience that benefit the presence of a huge community.

This echoes what Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli said recently, that the notion of ‘single-player’ experiences has to go away. He suggested that solo campaigns should always come with some degree of connectivity, similar to Guild Wars 2, or something like Need For Speed’s Autolog function.
