Ubisoft Massive describe their approach to Far Cry 3's multiplayer portion of gameplay, saying that while it's narratively led in co-op, they don't wave it in the player's face breaking singleplayer immersion.

The team doesn't want to remind us of our 'snotty friends' if we'd prefer to be left alone. We can "completely ignore those elements" despite being tied physically into the world.
