Assassin's Creed Unity is in line for some big changes, with four-player co-op set to be among them. With the AC series looking to expand its scope beyond anything seen to this point, it was a good time to speak to Ubisoft Design Director Bruno St-Andre about what's coming to the latest installment.
Our own Steven Wong asked St-Andre about how the co-op campaign will work and what will be available to friends looking to jump into the French Revolution together. St-Andre also discusses more of the gameplay aspects of the game, before going into how long Unity's been in development. As it turns out that it's been in the works since before Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag.

Assassin's Creed Unity is coming to PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 on October 28.

Ubisoft Design Director Bruno St-Andre talks about AC Unity's co-op, gameplay elements, and backstory.
I hate to say it, but I'm probably going to pass on AssUn. The lack of a female playable character for co-op kind of kills it for me.
My understanding is that co-op isn't a distinct mode, but rather integrated into the campaign. You always see yourself as Arno, the main campaign character, while other players are "transmuted" into other Assassins. And they see themselves as Arno too.
I supposed that they could have the transmutees appear as female to you, but no matter what they wouldn't be playable.
