"Assassin's Creed is mostly an annual affair now. Except for Assassin's Creed II, every game in the series has released the next year. Last year's Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag took a different approach compared to the rest of the games in the series. Black Flag could be easily termed as more of a pirates games rather an actual Assassin's Creed title but this change in direction was a welcome change. Unity goes back to the series' root once again but that does not mean the franchise won't rework on some of its crucial gameplay mechanics like stealth and assassination."
