Assassin’s Creed yearly installments aren’t going anywhere, but that doesn’t mean they don’t need a shake-up to make things interesting again. It sounds like Assassin’s Creed: Unity might just be the game to do it.
According to a report from The Escapist, Unity will have two demos at E3 this year.
One of the demos, according to a verified Ubisoft source, will show off a four player narrative cooperative mode, a first for the series.
While we’ve certainly seen four players coop games before, a four player cooperative mode set in an open world game like Assassin’s Creed could be really interesting. I can already imagine missions with coordinated assassinations occurring separately throughout Paris.
Assassin’s Creed‘s multiplayer attempts have been entertaining without ever really catching on. The game has always been primarily a story-driven experience, so the possibilities with this seem like a good way to bring in multiplayer without distracting players from what they came for.
With E3 only six weeks away, we’re already looking forward to seeing what Ubisoft plans for its first installment of the franchise designed with the new systems in mind.
