Assassin’s Creed Unity: co-op trailer changes everything

This week we’re seeing a bit more information on the French Revolution-based Assassin’s Creed: Unity with multiplayer. The team at Ubisoft have released a brand new trailer / interview sort of video that lets us in on how the game will play out with multiplayer, both in 2-player and 4-player modes.

First – and perhaps most important – is the fact that all of your customizations from single-player mode in Unity carry over to multiplayer. Whatever weapons and skills you have there, you have here in multiplayer. In a way that’s SORT OF similar to Watch Dogs, you’ll be able to walk to a place in single player, tap a couple of buttons, and jump right in on multiplayer.

Enter: the Brotherhood Missions. Here you’ll join up to three other friends in a number of environments where you’ll have goals that center on stealth, your ability to kill swiftly, and advancing the storyline. Sort of. The most important bit is teamwork.

You’ll use complimentary skills and abilities to accomplish the following:

• Murder Mysteries
• Assassination Contracts
• Heists

Heists are randomized. Whenever you attempt a heist, the elements inside the building you’re attempting to steal from are randomly placed. They’re not on the ceiling, or anything, so there is a limit to the number of places they can be, but they’re certainly not going to look the same from one play to the next.

Can’t wait!

This game will be released on November 11th, 2014 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. For those of you that want more information on Assassin’s Creed: Unity’s historical placement, you’ll want to check out a series of Rob Zombie-produced videos about the French Revolution. They’re grizzly and not to be trifled with.
