At Microsoft’s E3 press conference, Ubisoft showed off a brand new aspect of Assassin’s Creed Unity, and it’s something the fans have been clamoring for. Co-op. For the first time ever, you will be able to call your friends into your game or join them in theirs with the click of a button. From anywhere in your world, you can summon your Brotherhood to help you take on story-driven missions revolving around the bloody and turbulent French Revolution. Take a look at the gameplay demo we revealed for your first look at the co-op. Heads up, this video is not for the particularly faint of heart.
Assassin’s Creed Unity takes you back to Paris during the French Revolution – when the streets ran red with blood, heads were mounted on sticks as a form of protest, and the grounds were set for the modern era. Step into the robes of Arno Dorian, a young man who witnessed a horrible tragedy and turned to the Brotherhood to help him combat the corruption running rampant in France.
As seen in the gameplay demo, two Assassins are better than one, and four is even better than that. Use the environment to surround your enemies and synchronize your kills in brutal harmony. In addition to the co-op, Unity also adds customization to the game. You’ll be able to pick and choose your gear and apparel, and you’ll be able to level up a set of skills to make Arno the Assassin you want him to be. All of these customizations will carry over into the co-op.
Assassin’s Creed Unity will launch globally on October 28 for the Xbox One, PS4 and PC. Stay tuned to the UbiBlog for more details, including the goodies we’ll be showing off at the Ubisoft press conference later today.
