Assassin’s Creed Unity Might Include Multiplayer Co-op

According to a new report, this year’s current-gen only Assassin’s Creed game, Unity, will include a cooperative mode for up to four players. 

Former NeoGAF poster shinobi602 shared the news via several Tweets, and has stated that Ubisoft has two demos planned for the game at this year’s E3. One will focus on its single-player mode, while the other will showcase the game’s co-op offerings. No details were shared about the latter except for the fact that its a “separate narrative,” meaning the mode won’t focus on just allowing players to tackle the single-player mode together. 

To further support the rumor, a Ubisoft source spoke with The Escapist and confirmed the existence of both these demos, and that they will in fact be showcased at E3. 

Mutliplayer was first introduced to the series back in 2010 with Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood and has since become a mainstay for the series thereafter. The company first confirmed Unity several months ago, and revealed that the game will take place in 18th century Paris, France. A separate last-gen only game is also in the works, entitled Comet, and will reportedly release simultaneously with Unity later this year.

Ubisoft announced today that the series has reached 73 million sales worldwide, making it the biggest selling franchise for the company. The Just Dance series ranks in second place and is the closest to reach Assassin’s Creed’s commercial success, with 48 million sales.
