Several details may have been leaked in regards to the upcoming next-generation video game, “Assassin’s Creed Unity.” According to a report from Dual Shockers on April 19, Ubisoft is planning multiple showcases for this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo. The structure is expected to be similar to how “Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag” was showcased at E3 2013. The publisher provided a brief look at the fourth numbered entry of the series at Sony Computer Entertainment’s press conference while offering a more in depth look at their own media briefing.

“Assassin’s Creed Unity” will have two demos that be shown at E3 2014. The first is a traditional campaign, which was previously confirmed to be set during the French Revolution. The other demo focuses on the new four-player co-op mode featuring a story that is separate from the single-player campaign. However, the same insider did hint that co-op may be added to the campaign mode in the future. You can find the screen from the aforesaid “Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag” from the official Ubisoft Twitter page with the photo located to the top of this article.

Ubisoft announced recently that they will be holding their annual E3 press conference on June 9 at 3 p.m. local time, which is one day before the show floor is open to attendees. Aside from “Assassin’s Creed Unity,” the company is expected to provide more information on “Tom Clancy’s The Division,” an impressive looking open-world third-person shooter developed by Ubisoft Massive. “Assassin’s Creed Comet,” in addition to “Beyond Good and Evil 2,” may be revealed at E3 2014 as well.

“Assassin’s Creed Unity” is expected to come out this fall for the PC, PS4 and Xbox One. PS3 and Xbox 360 players will also be getting a new game in the series with the aforesaid rumored “Assassin’s Creed Comet.” Both software products are being developed by various Ubisoft internal studios.
