Continuing the growing trend of story-based cooperative gameplay, Assassin’s Creed: Unity will allow up to 4 players to play together.
Revealed during today’s Xbox Press conference, multiple player-controlled assassins will be able to take to the crowds of France and eliminate targets collaboratively. The demo shown during Xbox’s media briefing began with two assassins moving stealthily through the crowds of Paris’ streets. As they scaled a wall inching closer to their target, numerous soldiers lined the hall that led to their victim. It was then when two more assassins entered framed and helped to clear a path for their fellow assassins. What followed next was a bloody mess that ended with a good ol’ beheading. It is the French Revolution after all.
The game is being worked on by nine studios and is the first Assassin’s Creed game being built with the new generation of platforms as the based-developed platforms.
Take a look at the co-op action of Unity in the trailer below:
