Ubisoft has today announced that Assassin's Creed 3 will be featuring a series first Co-op, something many gamers have been eagerly asking for since the first title.
The mode is titled Wolf Pack, and will allow two or four players to compete against a round of assassination targets that are flashed up on your screen with a timer to compete against. A radar similar to the multiplayer in previous titles will pop up giving you the ability to silently seek out your target and end their life quickly.
What seems to be the most interesting thing about the co-op missions is that your target will blend in with their surroundings, similar to the multiplayer with multiple models, giving you a "spot the difference" style of play. Coercing players into using group tactics to take down their target, they will be awarded more points for "syncing" their kills as well as satisfaction for doing things together.

Assassin's Creed 3 will be available 31st of October this year for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
