The lights are on
Rumors are circulating that Assassin's Creed III may include more than one assassin teaming up to fight the good fight. A recent article over at IGN offers some suggestion that AC III may include 2-4 player online cooperative play. What's the evidence? Well, it's pretty flimsy. For a short time, Microsoft put up a product listing for the game on its website with a bullet point that declared the game would have 2-4 player online co-op. The detail has since been pulled, and could just as easily been a misuse of a product listing template as an actual leak. Game Informer reached out to Ubisoft about the story, but Ubisoft declined to offer any official comment on the matter. While it's certainly possible that Assassin's Creed III could include an online cooperative component, it would go contrary to anything Game Informer witnessed during our recent trip to Montreal to see the game. Time will tell if the rumor turns into fact.

This will be awsome if its ture.I have been waiting for something like this for a really long time.Cant wait to hear ubisofts comment on it.
If its true, I hope they pull it off well.
Ooh I'm for it! I think it would only add to the awesomeness of the game.
Maybe it could be like a SpecOps mode of sorts. I think the single player would suffer a lot if co-op was added, but a mission mode on the side would work out very well.
Believe it or not I have actually been dying for a co-op sort of thing in Assassins Creed. I love the campaigns of all the Assassins Creeds and I agree with most people when they say it should be played single player only but some co-op part of the game would be amazing in my opinion.
I would love this, but assassins has always had that 1vs a quadrilion effect for me, so i probably wont do that much with it.
plan your assassination with a buddy? sounds awesome
If they do this they better not make it where it has to be online to be able to play with more than one person. That would make me very, very angry.
Please please please please. I wish more games would have online co-op. Im awful at multiplayer and rarely play it cuz I just keep getting massacred. However one of my favorite things to do online is play Saints Row 2 in co-op. Not entirely sure how well it would work in an Assassins Creed game but I know for a fact that Arkham City was screaming for it and was denied the perfection it could have been with online co-op. Please game developers, more online co-op. Humans are meant to work together, why always kill each other?
If it's real, it better be implemented well. I would like it to be true, but don't want it on there just to have it.
Hmm Assassin's Creed is starting to get me interested again. I ended up skipping Brotherhood after only 2 hours playing it as it bored me extremely quickly (put me off Revelations too). But I'm liking that Ubisoft are finally changing the setting and hopefully the overall gameplay mechanics of this series. Assassin's Creed is a series that is screaming for a co-op, whether that be as part of the main game or separate. I'll keep my eye on this one...
I want there to be split-screen. That would be amazing...
oooooo I hope this is true, it would make the game that much better.
hopefully, me and my friends love this series and would enjoy playing at the same time instead of switching off
I love Cooperative!
I wouldn't mind seeing them restructure the multiplayer, from just being your standard deathmatch.
im not sure who the other characters would be but that would be awesome
