Currently, Ubisoft is hard at work to bring Assassin's Creed Unity to the world, but this time, according to an insider at the company, with a four-player co-op mode. In a report from fellow news website, The Escapist, it verified that the initial Twitter posts regarding this mode of user Shinobi682 (a former NeoGaf poster) are true. An anonymous, but legitimate inside source stated that this information is true, however Ubisoft has yet to release an official statement on the matter. Here is the original Twitter post from Shinobi

If Left 4 Dead and Shadow of the Colossus Had a Baby, It Would be OutriseChristopher Metz

The game is set in the year 2094, a group called the United States Federation are attempting to gain control of the world using the final currency in existence, CryptoCoin. Outrise, a resistance group made up of hackers have banded together to bring down the Federation by defeating their goliath, robotic machines of war. Essentially, players will be able to work together to survive massive robot assaults while trying to bring them down at the same time. Think of Half Life 2 during the City 17 resistance sections, or possibly Halo 3 with Master Chief bringing down Covenant scarabs. James Wearing, Project lead of Outrise, spoke about their game to Polygon, describing the game came about his love of 80's sci-fi:

At Co-Optimus we love ourselves a bit of Tom Clancy, especially of the Rainbow Six variety, but with that series in limbo what has the Tomster got for us instead?  We have already seen something from the upcoming Tom Clancy's The Division, but how does the co-op work and is it more PvP?  Ubisoft try to explain...

Announced during the hubbub that was E3 2013, The Crew is shaping up to be one extraordinary game. In development by Ivory Tower studios and published by Ubisoft, the game is a persistent online racer built from the ground-up with social and co-op play in mind. Join in, team up, complete missions and head out for a drive across the USA. But here's the real kicker: the game's world is over 3,100 square miles (5,000 km) in size. The New York map alone is as big as Liberty City from Grand Theft Auto IV. So when you do fancy that drive, you'd better be settled in for the long haul.

The Rainbow Six line of games has been a long established franchise spanning many years and a multitude of platforms. Originally announced in 2011, Rainbow Six: Patriots was supposed to be a current-gen game that would be released on Xbox 360, PC, and Playstation 3. Ubisoft recently revealed that they would be pushing back the game to next-gen. Tony Key, a Ubisoft marketing director, stated that that "Rainbow 6 got caught in the transition of going to next-gen and essentially we're figuring out 'well, are we making the right game for the right hardware systems?'"

Rayman Legends is quickly approaching release time. From what we saw at E3, it’s going to be one of the best looking (art-wise) co-op titles on the Wii U. But since this game will be releasing on most consoles now, practically everyone will be able to play this visually vibrant, stunning game come August. But just to grab a bit more eye-candy, we had a few new trailers pop up from Ubisoft that are def. worth watching once.

E3 has officially kicked off, and video game news has been showered upon the the world in torrents of information. One of the games that was revealed yesterday during Ubisoft's E3 2013 press conference was a game set in the Tom Clancy universe by the name of The Division. The Division takes a unique spin on the Tom Clancy mythos, asking the question of what happens when the big disaster strikes. The game world of The Division assumes a form of a dysotopian and anarchistic homeland. Cue "the division," a group of highly trained operatives tasked with rebuilding what was once lost.

What the Smurf?  Smurfette has gone missing and we need help to get her back; 4 player co-op help.  The Smurfs 2 is an upcoming co-op title linked to this summer's box office behemoth of the same name.  The game is Smurfing out on the 23rd of July across PS3, 360, Wii and Wii U.  As a special Wii U treat, these gamers will be able to have an additional 5th player on the GamePad - that Smurfs!

Good news for Rayman fans who hate sitting in front of the TV to play games. The famously delayed and formerly Wii U-exclusive platformer Rayman Legends is now heading to PlayStation Vita, releasing alongside the console versions later this year. The game packs all of the same content as its non-portable companions, adding in some extras because Ubisoft probably still feels a little guilty about that whole delay business. Let's just be quiet and milk this until launch day, ok?

For those that have been following news on the latest installment in the Splinter Cell series, Splinter Cell: Blacklist,  you may have noticed an emphasis on the cooperative aspects of the game. Focusing on a new gameplay philosophy that centers around the cohesion between two players, the cooperative play is being balanced and fine-tuned for an immersive experience. We talked about the way that the enemies, as well as the players, will rely upon one another to overcome obstacles and eliminate the opposing force in a previous article. For now, let's take a look at two new gameplay modes that will be present in Blacklist.

We’re only a few months off from having Splinter Cell: Blacklist in our hands, so it would be a fitting time to get pumped up for the game. Putting two co-op partners in the shoes of stealth veteran Sam Fisher and newbie Isaac Briggs, they can easily use creative combat and stealth strategies to their team’s ultimate advantage. Two heads are better than one, and this official co-op trailer shows us why.
