Assassin’s Creed: Unity will reportedly come packing a four-player co-op mode, a first for the traditionally solo time-travelling stealth-action adventure.

It’ll be a fully-fledged story-based co-op mode that will be showcased at this year’s E3 press conference from Ubisoft, in one of two brand-new gameplay trailers for the next-gen exclusive outing…

There are reportedly two separate Assassin’s Creed: Unity demos planned for E3 2014, one of the main single-player campaign and another for the 4-player co-op showcase. Ubisoft’s previous successful leap to co-op was undoubtedly the Splinter Cell series, and if it can pull of a similar level of trickery here we should be in for a treat.

The co-op mode will reportedly be a completely separate narrative to the single-player campaign, Let’s just hope there’s room in that haystack for four of us.

Of course this won’t be the first instance of multiplayer in the Assassin’s Creed series, with multiplayer support being included since 2010’s Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood. It’s always been a case of competitive multiplayer though, so Assassin’s Creed: Unity could certainly prove intriguing.

Assassin’s Creed: Unity is expected in Q4 2014 for PC, Playstation 4 and Xbox One.

What are you hoping for from Assassin’s Creed: Unity’s co-op?

Four-way assassinations? Sharing a haybale?

Don't think they've said yet, hopefully both, it's unfortunate that offline coop has been virtually abandoned these days.

The problem is, everything new added each year is starting to feel less like a gameplay feature and more like market research. And it's not just Assassin's Creed, I'm having deja vus of Far Cry 3 playing Black Flag. And Black Flag even has you rating missions. It's really soul-destroying how little they care about the IP. Adding year by year to their 'ultimate blockbuster' gene pool to eventually clone yearly 'revolutionary' successes far into the next millennium.

I know right in AC 3 I never cared for the Boat missions and never really wanted that ot be a part of the core gameplay. Then AC 4 comes out and I was just very turned off by the pirate characters, the missions, just the entire game itself.

I hope for that Co-Op to be embedded somehow into the main story that shows events that made consequences in the single player campaign but we couldn't play in that single player. I wish that it doesn't feel like multiplayer but rather more singleplayer CO-OP. I am wondering how this would affect combat and navigation though :D I think we will play as the main character and the other three will be other main Assassins in the game.

well they just rebooted the franchise in 2010, so it's not out of the realm of possibility for a new PoP. You can play The Forgotten Sands, or the reboot, the former I know is really good, the latter I haven't played yet :)

The reboot was interesting and I enjoyed it, and I also enjoyed Forgotten Sands. At some point I think they will bring another PoP and E3 is not far off.

I wouldn't doubt it. I know the reboot was supposed to be good, and I am loving Forgotten sands as well, I'm just having issues with getting a good framerate ^^; but oh well, still, I imagine you're right, a new PoP shall arrive sometime soon. Probably hinted at during E3, like sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, was, in 2011.

and I'm quite opposite, although I've only played two PoP games: Sands of Time, and The Forgotten Sands, I like the latter better, honestly, but that's me :)

I really don't see the point in killing civilians in the AC series. You can't kill civilians in plenty of other games, including The Witcher series. Why? Because it's completely against the character you're playing to do so. If you want that kind of stuff play GTA. (I love GTA, btw.)

Like I said, I mean't guards. I thought it would be somewhat obvious as everyone knows you can't kill civies in succession in AC series. xD

I realize that you did clarify that you meant just guards, but Idrambil specifically mentioned his desire to kill "innocents" and others didn't exactly say that they didn't want to kill the civilians. I was just stating my opinion on the subject.

Actually, In the 1st ac, after finishing the story, You can kill civilians at will without desynchronizing

didnt know that man thx ^^


@everyoneElse
yes of course you COULD kill "innocents" but the game will spank you if you do it few times in the row (its kinda my definition of YOU CANT do something ^^)
Like you COULD drive 200mph in a city street but you will probably get a ticket, so you kinda CANT do that ^^ anyway i think you got what i meant ^^
