The long-running Assassin’s Creed franchise isn’t exactly known for its online multiplayer, which has been present in a handful of titles across the entire series, but it’s still beloved by many players. On Sept. 1, 2022, however, Ubisoft is planning to permanently shut down the online services for 15 of its classic games, including several Assassin’s Creed titles.

AC fans aren’t intending to let the online services die without a sound, as Redditors are planning a series of final multiplayer game sessions across three of the Assassin’s Creed games affected by the shutdown. Fans of Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood, Revelations, and III will be able to join like-minded players in online multiplayer shenanigans across six weekends and multiple time zones, for a total of 36 planned sessions.
