It has been revealed that co-op has finally come to Assassin's Creed 3. The new mode dubbed 'Wolf Pack' will feature four player co-op that will have your team taking down NPC targets. This is a first for the franchise and we are definitely excited to be running as a group rather than a one man wolf pack.
Stabbing dudes has always been satisfying throughout each of the Assassin's Creed games, and now with the opportunity to assassinate waves of enemy targets with friends is tantilizing. Each assignment will become more difficult so you must devise more elaborate and stealthy attempts with each kill. Keep in mind that you can't wait in the shadows forever as you will be racing against the clock take out the enemy (or enemies) and your wolf pack will have to rely on cooperation and communication to succeed at the higer levels.
Visually the Wolf Pack mode looks very similar to the previous multiplayer, with a familiar hud and a compass directing you in the general direction of your target. Each player will take on the role of a different assassin, so you won't be fighting over who gets to wear the white cloak.
Look forward to Assassin's Creed 3 hitting this fall on October 30th (31st in Europe) for the PC, Xbox 360, and Playstation 3.
