How is that supposed to work?

Unless it's co-op, stealth-em-up games make an odd choice for head to head multiplayer. It'd be like having a multiplayer batman game, seeing 20 Batmans would kinda ruin it for me.

The minigame type bits in AC2 would work great for multiplayer, as would something in the style of The Hidden. Probably be races with a time trial system and leaderboards like Mirror's Edge has too.

This is what I've longed for - a multi-player Assassin's Creed or Thief. And trust me it can work extremely well.

I used to play a game called Thievery UT - a mod for Unreal Tournament. It involved essentially a team of thieves thrown against a team of guards, the thieves' objective being stealing loot and the guards' objective being to preserve the loot.

What will be most intriguing about the game will be the way in which they implement the stealth aspects. That is, how you would "not recognise" Altair whilst he is blending in with crowds etc.

There has also been discussions about a Thief 4! All my christmas' coming at once it seems.
