Ubisoft recently brought Lesley Phord-Toy, Assassin’s Creed Unity producer, on camera to talk about the cooperative play in Assassin’s Creed Unity. Ubisoft has spent a lot of marketing money on the co-op, and today’s video shows off what gamers can expect when they attempt to take the group multiplayer quests on in real time.
All character customizations from the single player carry over into the co-op. You can meet up with your friends, and their customizations, in taverns when they’re online. It won’t be them in taverns directly, but their “ghosts.” You essentially interact with an avatar of your friend in order to initiate cooperative play without leaving your game for another menu.
The video above details skill upgrading, shared skills and a whole lot more for Unity‘s cooperative mode. To be honest, this is something I never thought I’d be excited about playing. Assassin’s Creed always felt like a lone wolf experience to me. Seeing it in motion and hearing about the ideas behind co-op play in Unity, though, has me excited.
Assassin’s Creed Unity will hit the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC platforms on Nov. 11. We’ll have more on the game as it comes.
