LOS ANGELES — Four assassins are better than one in Assassin’s Creed: Unity.

At Microsoft’s press conference for this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo tradeshow today, developer Ubisoft announced that you can form your own Brotherhood of assassins with up to three of your friends in the new game. Previous Assassin’s Creed games filled your brotherhood with computer-controlled characters.

During a trailer for Unity, which is set during the French Revolution, four assassins worked together to slay soldiers, infiltrating an aristocrat’s mansion and killing even more people.

Assassin’s Creed: Unity is coming later this year to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
