Assassin's Creed IV co-op modes revealed

Format:
With just three months to launch, Ubisoft is really ramping up the publicity for Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag

Release Date: 30/07/2013

With just three months to launch, Ubisoft is really ramping up the publicity for Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag and the latest aspect of the game to be highlighted is the two co-operative modes.

Yes, two. Assassin's Creed III introduced co-operative play with its Wolfpack mode, and now it seems Black Flag will go one better. First up there's Discovery, a story driven co-operative campaign for four players which will introduce the co-op game mechanics. Once you've mastered those, you can plunge into Unleashed mode, where you'll undertake specific co-op missions.

You'll collaborate with other players to guard objectives, identify disguised targets and take out specific enemies using synchronised kills. Some targets can only be killed once you've achieved an additional objective, such as retrieving a particular object or package.

Multiplayer will also be getting a few tickles from the update feather. Assassin's Creed IV will introduce something called Gamelab where you can create your own custom rulesets for multiplayer matches. So you can force everyone to use a certain weapon type, or restrict scores to specific actions.

Hard to imagine now that we all raised a sceptical eyebrow when it was announced the series would include multiplayer from Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood in 2010. Now it's such a huge and enjoyable part of the games, it's hard to imagine Assassin's Creed without online play.

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag is out on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii U on November 1st. PC will follow, along with Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions.
