If you’re like me, then when Ubisoft first announced a multiplayer mode was coming to Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood, you immediately began to have visions of running around rooftops taking out targets with a buddy start dancing through your head. As we know, that wasn’t the case as a new competitive multiplayer mode was introduced and has since become a staple of the series.

With Assassin’s Creed III on the way in a few months, our wishes for co-op have finally rung true. Introducing Wolfpack, a two to four player co-op mode where you and your squad hunt down targets. I know what you’re thinking and no, this isn’t a horde style mode, so don’t panic.

You and your fellow assassin’s are given a target, the familiar hunting reticle from multiplayer and a time limit to hunt that person down. You’re given additional time for special kills and coordination with your team. It pays in this mode to communicate and work together as one person doing all the work won’t net you a ton of points as using team tactics. Ah, but it’s not that simple. Your target may be blending in with similar looking people. Pick the wrong guy and he may be a lookout, stunning you and warning the target. In this case, you don’t fail the mission, but you won’t gain as many points and more importantly, you lose a lot of time. Time is everything as you’ll gain points and use them to advance.

Wolfpack seems to be a fantastic addition to an already content heavy game. Co-op has long been over due, so I’m glad it’s finally being added. Speed kills, literally. Grab your squad, it’s hunting time.
