Assassin’s Creed IV Multiplayer Looks Better Than Ever

Assassin’s Creed’s multiplayer gameplay returns in Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, a game which we listed as one of our eight most wanted PC games this year, with what the Ubisoft is calling “evolved features” and a cast of new characters pulled from the Golden Age of Pirates. Today, the game’s publisher released a slate of screenshots that offer a glimpse into the new multiplayer.

One of the big improvements to the game’s multiplayer is the new “Discovery” addition to Wolfpack, the mode that was first added to the series in Assassin’s Creed 3. Multiplayer developer Ubisoft Annecy says that they are taking a “big step” by expanding the game’s co-op offering with the mode.

In “Discovery”, players experience a linear story-based sequence that serves as a tutorial mode for co-op. While Wolfpack was initially added to AC3 to attract gamers that wanted to experience Assassin’s Creed in a cooperative environment, the game’s director Damien Kieken says that the previous game failed to introduce players to the rules of the game.

Once players finish Discovery, they are able to move onto the full “Unleashed” offering, with a goal of reaching the highest sequence possible, attainable by performing multi-kills and cooperative sync-kills with other players. Players will also have to defend chests, kill disguised enemies, and beat infected opponents. VG247 got a hands-on of the mode, which you can read about here.

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag will be released on the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Wii U and PC systems. It’ll be available on current-gen systems on October 29, followed by a release on next-gen platforms at a later date.
