Murderous Pursuits is The Ship: Remasted crew’s latest stab at a multiplayer assassination game, due out next month. Like in previous Ship games, you’re given a target to hunt while another player hunts you. Unlike previous Ship games, you’re on a flying boat packed with alternate reality Victorian time-travellers.
The real difference, though, lies in how the devs have fully embraced the joys of NPCamoflauge: the three rounds I’ve played were much closer to the main multiplayer mode from old Assassin’s Creed games than they were to previous versions of The Ship. Turns out that was exactly the right direction to head in.
