Gaming by yourself is fun, but it is also fun and potentially even more fun when played with friends or strangers on the internet. The good news is that if you were worried that the upcoming Assassin’s Creed: Unity game will have some kind of muted multiplayer experience, fret not because apparently a 4-player co-op is one of the features of the upcoming game.
This was revealed by former NeoGAF user, Shinobi602, who stated that Ubisoft is reportedly planning a demo of Assassin’s Creed: Unity. One of the demos is for single-player mode, while the other will show off a 4-player co-op mode which admittedly sounds like fun. After all who wouldn’t want to see four assassin’s running around together, right?
However unlike co-op mode found on other games where a group of players play together to finish the game’s story, collect loot, meet objectives, and etc., Unity’s co-op will be something different. Instead it will feature its own narrative separate from the singleplayer campaign, much like Far Cry 3’s co-op campaign which also featured its own storyline.
Assassin’s Creed: Unity was revealed back in March following leaked screenshots. The game is expected to see a release in the later part of the year where it will be arriving on the PC, the PlayStation 4, and the Xbox One. For gamers with previous gen consoles, rumor has it that Ubisoft is working on an Assassin’s Creed game codenamed “Comet” that will arrive for older consoles.
