Assassin's Creed IV Co-Op ReviewJason Love

Assassin’s Creed IV will likely be a divisive entry in the series. The emphasis on sailing the seas and ship-to-ship combat over the usual sneak, stab, run gameplay (not to mention the shift in story away from many of the series’ touchstones), almost makes the title feel like it should have been a whole new IP. In many ways, it probably...

While there was some speculation that this bundle was only available in Europe, Gamespot's page states that it ships to US. It also makes note that there is only one PS4 bundle per household, so if you have any siblings eyeing that Killzone pack-in, you'd better act quickly. This particular box comes with one PlayStation 4, one Dual Shock 4, and a copy of Assassin's Creed IV

Thus, co-op multiplayer has remained in AC IV. Similar to that introduced in AC III, the co-op mode allows up to four pirates to team up to meet objectives. Defending chests and synchronized kills are among many other types of goals to be reached. A lengthy video detailing the co-op multiplayer has been released, and is embedded below. Feast your eyes on more than ten minutes of in-game co-op footage. It looks like there's plenty of murder and plunder to be had!

10.29.2013

Sonic: Lost World (WiiU, 3DS) - It's not a full on co-op campaign like we're used to, instead you'll get a Mario Galaxy style BYOB co-op experience. This will work across platforms at least, so it's got that going for it. [2 player couch co-op]

The launch trailer is the usual Assassin's Creed shenanigans; more cinematography, than gameplay, but it does give you a feel of the world you will be visiting.  As well as a comprehensive story campaign (which may bore you to death is Assassin's Creed 3 is anything to go by) there is an improved online 4 player co-op experience this time around.

Although devoid of any co-op news, the latest trailer for Assassin's Creed 4 is a fun romp through the pirate setting of the game.  Available from the 29th October on consoles; this generation and next, Assassin's Creed 4 will have a 4 player online co-op mode that promise to be great fun.

AC4 is releasing across more consoles than you can indicate with one hand, so it might be tricky to remember which release date is relevant to you. If you're planning on nabbing the game on the current generation of consoles (PS3, WiiU, or Xbox 360), just remember October 29th. PC and next-gen console release dates are a little less straight-forward, though. PC players will be getting the game on November 19th, following the standard Ubisoft procedure of delayed PC versions. The PS4 version drops on November 15th while the Xbox One version launches November 22nd.

Sea Engine

Water has always been known as something that is difficult to digitally replicate in games, and Ubisoft isn’t pulling any punches in their next gen engine. Using Beaufort levels and shallow water shaders, the water looks different in color at various depths, and the further you are from land the more potential there is for waves to pick up. Combined together, these two technologies create a very convincing ocean for your pirating adventures.

Many of you that picked up and played Assassin's Creed III may be familiar with the "Wolfpack" co-op mode. Essentially you and a group of friends (up to 4 players, total) were tasked with assassinating some high profile targets in an area. The faster and, more importantly, stealthier that you accomplished this, the more time that would be added to the clock that's continuously ticking down, and the further along you would progress in the sequences. It was, in some ways, a fancy "horde" mode. Instead of waves of enemies coming at you, though, you had to approach the enemies without being spotted and off them in some spectacular fashion. It was also quite fun.
