Aside from being executed by a frenzied mob of Parisians, just about everything is more fun with a friend. Assassin's Creed Unity takes that to heart, allowing players to join up with their buddies and take on special missions. A new trailer shows how you can tailor your version of Arno Dorian to support your style of play – and even your fashion sense – before hitting the streets.

Creative director Alex Amancio narrates the video, showing how your wardrobe affects more than how you look. For example, a low-slung hood allows you to maintain an equally low profile, which is perfect for blending into crowds. Weapons and clothing items all have stat bonuses, and you can get a glimpse of some of the possible combinations. There's also footage of how players can work together to navigate tricky situations – something Kim and I experienced during our hands-on time with the game.

Assassin's Creed Unity is set for release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on November 11. For more information on the game and Assassin's Creed Rogue, which launches the same day, visit our hub page. It's filled with exclusive previews, video features, and more.
