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?
