One of this fall's big Assassin's Creed games, called or code-named Unity, is set at least partly in 18th-century Paris, according to early leaked screenshots obtained by Kotaku
Unity Assassin Creed interesting names
Paris, really? I mean...Paris is all good if you have exhausted all the other options/locations, but what about Feudal Japan, Ancient China, India, Russia, Victorian London, Ancient EGYPT!...there's so many more interesting locations than Paris. I'll remain sceptical. Let's hope it's not just more of the same with a new skin. @ArmGunar French Revolution, that's cool i guess, but i just think there are so many other, more interesting times in history that AC could explore. I don't understand why they would prioritize Paris over any of those. Ancient Egypt especially.
Paris would be very cool as environment to play ! And the history of France with Revolution for example could be very pleasant :) Victorian London ? The Order 1886 :D
if I had to guess why some locations are not as high in priority, it would be because of the whole climbing mechanics. AC depends a lot on relatively tall buildings close together in a town structure. Though that emphasis has been changing recently so hopefully we will get more variety in the future
I was hoping for China too but Paris during the revolution is an awesome setting. Also, Egypt? really? that would be boring honestly.
I know what u mean. It's so much like the last set of AC'S except for ac4. how much different will this be than boston in ac3.
Oh crap, it's the same engine from AC3/4, there'll be a sh#tstorm over that on the internet. And I thought it was going to be targeted for PS4/Xbox One only.
Agreed. I wish and hope atleast one Asscreed game will be based in africa/asia. Especially north-Africa and China/Japan
I know right, it's like the ignore what fans want. Why have they started given the AC games now though a subtitle. AC4: Blackflags now most likely AC5: Unity. I know it's most likely to do with the fact that the main Desmond trilogy is over but the thing is <SPOILERS> .......Juno is still out there, a plot point from Desmond's story, they should of closed the book on her if they were going to pay little attention to the present setting. The first person moments in AC4 were much worse then the Desmond moments in AC1-3. With the new Up and Down parkour buttons does this mean they'll have a free button slot for a CROUCH button....for stealth.
I'm less concerned with location and more concerned with the screenshots. Am I the only one who thinks this looks very last-gen?
I don't want to brag about it but I told you so http://n4g.com/news/1462584...
Would love a true full next gen AC game with a smaller side title for the Vita. I really loved Liberation.
The first thought that came to mind was diving off the Eiffel Tower. Then I wondered if it was built yet at this time. I hope so. Still would like to see a WW1 setting where I could hop around Europe. Maybe one day.
I don't have any problems with the settings but I just feel that they should take a break and make a new engine or something, so the game could look fresh again. To this day the games have basically looked and felt almost identical but with a different skin. New engine and refined combat system would do great to this franchise. Hope that they are already doing it...
@guitarted77 Yeah, these don't look that great. But remember that these are supposedly of an early build and they were leaked. I have no doubt that the final game will look very good. AC4 is one of the best looking new gen games and this one should look even better.
Sounds like The Saboteur to me. Just an earlier time period.
They're probably saving those locations for later games
I think it might be interesting to see a game where the Assassins are on the offensive and aided in the sacking of many Templar bases and arrests/tortures back centuries ago that lead to, in real life, the disbanding of the Knights Templar and would explain why the word "Templar" is often spoken in privacy in games with settings in later times. Maybe we play as a Templar instead of an Assassin in this story, all the way through this time just to mix it up a bit.
Ubisoft is french so they're gonna show off their frenchiness.
Ancient Egypt would've been the best choice I think.
@ LiberatedAnimal If it was during the French Revolution times 1789 to 1799, the Eiffel tower was built in 1887. Plus if you jumped off that, it does not matter what you land in, you'd still end up a splat!
Assasins creed my black hairy ass
Too. much. information
Paris is cool. Hopefully we see some cool French art influence in the colors and art style of the city.
The only AC I would be interested in is feudal Japan. Black Flag was a brilliant idea also
They need to slow down with these games. The taste is getting real sour really quick.
yeah honestly this is the most milked series in gaming as far as i know. Overtaking even Guitar Hero imo
@Axe Ehm... Call Of Duty?
Here's my take. All major titles have been AC Numerical. Assuming this isn't a code name we have Bloodlines, Liberation, Unity, or spin offs. Or in the event of AC2 Brotherhood and Revelations but personally I don't Unity being a sequel to Black Flag... So I'll hold judgement until a more concrete detail is available. Unity & Comet, two completely different games for two different gaming gens? Sounds like filler to me. Having said that I obviously don't see a problem with the supposed location of Paris or whatever timeline it will be. I will say they sure are stroking the milk spouts now, full steam ahead. I understand business is all about making $ but they might want to slow their role before they completely run one of gaming best franchises into the grave.
Then this will be the first AC I will not buy. They have abonded the core elements of these series, and that's ancient history. What made the series awesome whas the history, like Jeruzalem, Italy, Ottoman Empire. But now they made giant leaps into the future. Ubisoft know we, the fans want Feudal Japan or Egypt or any other location that isn't America or Europe. But look now... Paris... I know i'm not the only one here
Anyone else tired of them making this game.
Separate current gen and last gen games
According to Kotaku's sources there will be two Assassin's creed games. One for PS4 and Xbox one name 'unity' and one for the PS3 and 360 named comet.
So now we'll have TWO games each year? Wow, and here I was thinking that one game every year was already too much...
@Nerdmaster, at least they're separating the gens now. It's time we start getting more ps4/xb1 games that aren't doable on ps3/360/wiiu. It's kind of the reason we bought the new systems.
Ubisoft is huge, they can afford even more than that. As long as quality keeps up, Im happy.
They'll release the game for PS4 and Xbox One, and then in six months, port the 360/PS3 game to Ps4 and Xbox One.
Im hoping one for vita and the other for ps4/XBONE only but with the sales of the vita currently it is questionable
If it's anything like The Saboteur, I'm in. Brilliant game.
Neogaf AC plane leak strikes again!
i was doubtfull when i read that leak , but he was right ... Next time i'll take a plane i'll NOT be doubtfull of any guy that claim to work at ubisoft.
Ubisoft Employees on a Plane should be a gaming doc. Probably a hell of a lot of stories out there, including games that got leaked but never made their way to Neogaf.
Sounds like they are focusing on each set of platforms. Nice. Id like to see what xbone and ps4 can do for this franchise
Interesting location I guess, but I agree with Lukas. Something like Victorian London or Feudal Japan sounds a lot better.
I agree, I want to go back into History not forward
Paris? What a yawn fest. Leaked? Sounds like a PR campaign from Ubi. LOL!
The only thing thats a yawn fest is ironman
You must not know much about France's history, which had A LOT of involvement with the Knights Templar. Including when the king got them not only to disband, but branded as satanists and heretics (as you know, two of the gravest offenses in those times). Do a little research, it has a lot more potential than you might think. I was of the same mindset as you until I started actually digging into France's history.
No, I still think its a yawn fest. But I appreciate the enthusiasm. I want to leave Europe see. There is a whole BIG planet with other cultures and settings to explore. We did 3 games with Enzio, Ubi kind of over stayed their welcome. Oh and your're right about Iron Man, but hes got to be at least half as good as Marky Mark.
Japan would have been amazing, I wouldn't have minded the previously rumored Russia setting either tbh.
Never has such a mediocre franchise been milked so relentlessly.
Well, it makes sense, if you have 1000 developers working on this crap.
Ever heard of this game called Call of Duty?
No, is this the game where you play as a poni in it ?
It's milked though not like the Assassin't Cread franchise , two games releasing in one year o_o
Looks cool, was a fan of the architecture in AC2, and Brotherhood, and those images show an equally impressive one.
It would be cool if it's not only Paris though an there are some other cities which I'm sure there are
Was hoping they'd stay away from the West for a while but another Western setting. Was hoping Egypt or China.
Two? Eghhh these games are starting to feel like homework. They just keep shoveling them out year upon year. Let us miss the franchise make some leaps in gameplay please.
I wanna see Assassin's Creed Japan. Hopefully next year.
I don't see why you have disagrees. Japan would be awesome. It's time we leave the Europe and the US and go to the East. Great history there
Yea I don't get that too. Haters will always be haters and miserable people -_- I agree we need to have an Assassin's Creed game set in Asia continent. And if it's successful then maybe more countries from that continent.
Why not really try and blow our minds... South America, Mix between the Spanish/Portuguese colonization taking place in Brazil, Argentina, and the Amazon rain forest. That said, French Revolution is cool too. Japan, of course would be great as well.
Rick James UUUUUNIIIITTYYYYYY!
F___ you and your couch.
The really need to give a good place to just jump and climb around again. That aspect of Assassins Creed has been seriously lacking since the Ezio trilogy. Hopefully this is it.
That's a female assassin in those pictures
Unity is a great name we are are unified in our dream of killing Frenchmen
Looks like a title that would be suitable for the PS Vita or mobile devices.
yes...Yes.....YES....YESSSSSSS !!! (/ﾟДﾟ)(/ﾟДﾟ)/(/ﾟДﾟ)/(/ﾟДﾟ)/ Release a flipping trailer already ubisoft!!!
