Ubisoft has rebuilt the combat in Unity, with fencing being their inspiration for the new system. The Hidden Blade also becomes the Phantom Blade with long range.
For the first time in the series co-op multiplayer lets friends join each other during missions, with the game's taverns acting as social hubs to gather. Up to four players can join.
Assassin's Creed: Unity releases on PC, Xbox One and PS4 November 11th in the US, 13th in EU.
