Assassin's Creed 3 survey gauges interest in future features such as co-op

Ubisoft may be considering implementing cooperative play in a future Assassin's Creed game, if a U.K.-based survey from market research firm GMI is anything to go by, reports Joystiq.

The survey asks respondents for their opinions on Assassin's Creed 3, and then asks them to rate their level of interest in features for a future entry in the franchise, including a variety of co-op gameplay elements, more naval battles and the ability to play as a Templar. Here's the full list of features the survey proposes:

  • Play another game with Connor
  • More wilderness areas to explore outside the cities
  • Ability to continue gameplay experience on tablet/mobile while away from home
  • Playing as a templar
  • Underwater gameplay
  • Ability to share information in-game with friends e.g. solve in-game clues together
  • More naval gameplay (navigation, battles...)
  • Ability to use mobile/tablet as a complementary display to perform some actions or access some info while playing on my console
  • Ability to create my own assassin and customize him
  • More famous historical characters to meet/befriend/fight
  • A new present-day hero (different from Desmond)
  • More assassination missions
  • Playing as a new assassin, in a different historical time period
  • More stealth gameplay sequences
  • Possibility for a friend to join the game in order to help me at any time during the solo mode
  • More gun fighting
  • Deeper storyline connection between solo adventure and multiplayer modes
  • Tracking stats and performance in multiplayer, and the ability to share and compete with others on in-game leaderboards online and/or in a companion app
  • More possibilities to defend yourself against attackers in multiplayer
  • Ability to create my own multiplayer avatar (customize looks, abilities, skills)
  • A deeper team-based multiplayer (guilds, squads that have common objectives, new tools for clan management...)
  • Customization of the multiplayer experience (logos, avatars, objects, team names etc)
  • New multiplayer modes
  • Assassination missions in co-op
  • Additional multiplayer characters with new skill sets
  • Ability to create user-generated content in multiplayer (maps, replay videos)
  • A spectator mode in multiplayer
  • A co-op split-screen mode
  • PvP mode with melee fighting and hand-to-hand combat
  • Co-op story missions (two to four players)

In addition, the survey asks about downloadable content for Assassin's Creed 3, such as the previously announced Tyranny of King Washington add-on, as well as the respondent's interest in an Assassin's Creed game released in 2013. GMI launched a similar survey shortly after the release of Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood in 2010, asking about many of the same features listed above — including co-op.

We've reached out to Ubisoft to ask whether the company commissioned the survey, and will update this article with any information we receive.

Update: A Ubisoft representative sent Polygon the following statement: "Assassin's Creed is an ongoing franchise that we're continuing to evolve and part of that process is always gauging gamers' interests."
