Assassin's Creed Unity E3 marketing art has four equally placed assassins (co-op?)

Co-op? It has been rumored for this entry.

I hope it isn't anything like the multiplayer portions of these games. I want something that controls and looks like the singleplayer (or is simply just the singelplayer with other people), not some reskinned thing from the last MP with bots.

Can I assume these are create-a-characters aside from the main guy? And not actually designed people?

fits in what Shinobi said about 2 separate demos (one at Ubi and the other at Sony). One would be single player and the other would co-op.

I really hope that if they bring in coop they do it intelligently.

I don't want my lonely singleplayer experience have a bunch of design stuff made strictly with coop in mind.

Could it be like a GTA5 multi-protagonist form? That would definitely be a way to change the formular i little.

Hmm, interesting. The name of the game would make a bit more sense as well if there is an actual co-op element to it.

I am surprised it's actually called Assassin's Creed Unity. I thought that was just a codename for the project. Hopeuflly they can license some Queen Latifah for the trailers. You gotta let them know you're not a bitch or a ho.

So is the other game actually going to be called Assassin's Creed Comet?
 
No female assassin?
Where the lady assassins at tho
Way back before Black Flag there were some rumblings that there would be a French Revolution next-gen only AC starring a female assassin, but that the last part might not be allowed by executives and/or marketing.

We have four guys on the poster and everything else matches, so I assume anything bigger than AC Vita will never be allowed to have a starring female assassin.

That or they just went for four generic guys a la Destiny having three males on the cover and we will see female options at E3.

If this is true then I will definitely be getting this game! I skipped Black Flag because I was not a fan of the ship mechanics, but Unity seems very interesting so far and it having co-op would be awesome!

Would be awesome if there are 4 separate single player stories for 4 different assassins. And you can play 4 player co-op in the same open world and cross paths and help each other when needed. That would be awesome.

First thing that came to my mind when seeing that guy. And it'd make sense in terms of time. Connor would still be alive.

I hope not, please.. I don't even want a cameo from Connor in the game. La Fayette invited him to France, afaik - but please no.

Interesting, but I don't think it's enough to get me back into the Ubisoft Game grinder. IV was a really good change of pace after the disappointment of Revelations and III, but mostly because of the naval combat, not the meaningless collectibles, empty open world and boring combat. It'll be weird to let go of the series after getting so invested in the stupid (but the right kind of fun stupid) story, but there's nothing grabbing me yet. Show something cool at the event Ubi, change my mind.

Well, the one with the crossbow could be a woman, I guess?
It's a bit weird that they chose that angle for that one assissin, anyway.
