Only recently got into the Assassins Creed world with the last 2 games but so glad i did Unity will definitely be added to the collection looks great.
Abriael  +   266d ago
Yeah. I will not lie. When they released Assassin's Creed III the franchise pretty much fell out of grace for me, mostly because I really disliked connor (too brooding and whiny). Black Flag redeemed it for me, and I have high hopes for Unity.
cfc78  +   266d ago
Yeah i heard that a'lot about Assassins Creed 3 i guess if you've been there from the beginning a big change in character can do that to a game series for me though it was the start so i had nothing to compare it with just glad i gave it ago really looking forward to the rest of the series now.

Black Flag is an incredible game. Was playing through it for the second time to today. Very excited for Unity. I'm not really sure if I will like the online part of the game, but thats okay. The meaty 100 hour long campaign will be worth my $60.

@ logic
For me the online portion is lame. My first real taste of AC was part III, I really liked that game and black flag was great as well. I'm stoked for unity.
iamnsuperman  +   265d ago
Blag flag, to me, feels like a half assed pirate game and a half assed Assassin's Creed game rubbed together. I am currently playing it (for the first time). I am less concerned how they will take the modern day story arch but the game, to me, leaves a lot to be desired and I am going to wait to see what kind of reaction unity gets before jumping on board

dude go back and play Assassins creed 2! EZIO is AWESOME! AC2 was by far the best AC game and had the best story! in fact play through the ezio trilogy or at the very least watch the movie of it online on you tube their are like massive compilations of the ezio trilogy like a movie!

I promise you wont regret it!!!!!

I only played the first 3 but will be playing black flag and this one when I get a ps4. I like that they have huge crowds now. I liked to see all the people running away at the end, thats awesome.

It looks very promising so far.

Man the graphics look so damn good.
starchild  +   265d ago
Yeah, and apparently this is the XB1 version. It looks fantastic. I can't wait to see what the Nvidia GameWorks features are going to be for the PC version. Just TXAA alone makes a huge difference for me. http://www.geforce.com/what...

pc demo running with xbox pads..i expect that from ubisoft
16bitNutritionist  +   265d ago
Wasn't this demo shown at E3?
Nekroo91  +   265d ago
Yes it is. They just changed one kill animation, but they did the same with 3 videos already. And the guy isnt even playing
bjmartynhak  +   265d ago
Looks like AC all right.

Guys, I'm burned out from AC since the very beginning of Brotherhood, haven't beaten it, nor Revelation, ACIII or Black Flag. Does Unity look like a possible entry to come back?
Deividas  +   265d ago
Um...Black Flag should have been your entry to come back, that game was just great.
iamnsuperman  +   265d ago
It is a crap Assassin's Creed game though. Very little of it is Assassin's Creed (it is a game set in that universe; nothing more nothing less). So it hard to say it is a comeback title when very little of it is Assassin's Creed

So...people bitch that AC is getting stale and repetitive, and then when Ubisoft goes out and puts a different take on the series and tries to be different, they bitch that its not the same as the rest of the series....hmmm tough crowd
starchild  +   265d ago
You haters can't seem to get your story straight. I hear lots of people saying "oh it's just the same old boring crap, nothing new", but... supposedly it's not an Assassin's Creed game. Huh?

How does that work? How can some people say it hasn't changed, but others say that it's so different to the point of not even being an AC game?

I think both positions are silly. The game has changed (in fact every entry in the series has seen evolution and advancements in the core mechanics) but the game is also clearly still an Assassin's Creed game in terms of the gameplay, structure, atmosphere and approach to narrative.

The idea is to show the templar/assassin conflict from the viewpoint of an outsider. It's told differently for this reason, but it still deals with the same ideas and overarching plot.

It's still very much an Assassin's Creed game. I think some of you are just looking for any angle you can in which to hate on it.
bjmartynhak  +   265d ago
So many disagrees. Guys, not everyone is super-fan of your favorite series. I just asked something...

and thanks for the reply Deividas :)
lonewolfjedi  +   265d ago
do we really need the x-ray vision to see everybody in buildings we are infiltrating? it feels like this will the game too easy to me
Tedakin  +   265d ago
I'm like 17 games behind in the Assassin's Creed series at this point :(
Ausbo  +   265d ago
Haha yeah I don't like it being an annual franchise cause its hard to keep up. Even though they are pretty good quality every year.
Disagree  +   265d ago
looks so good
Sevir  +   265d ago
AC unity looks impressive from a graphics stand point. I love that its next gen only. Definitely one of the most graphically impressive next gen open world games out there. I'm just burnt out on AC though. Can't get into the series anymore. After AC3 I was over the franchise. Fatigue has set in for this game IP. But it printsa money and it'll continue to be this money printer for UBISOFT
thunderbear  +   265d ago
To me it looks fresh enough gameplay wise. Seems the gameplay is faster this time around. The rapid descent is awesome and the combat they've talked about has been greatly refined.
system22  +   265d ago
Wow. Looks impressive. I'm especially impressed by the animations and transitions between animations. Doesn't have those hard sequence transitions that most games have.
47  +   265d ago
Looks fantastic. Can't wait.
MultiConsoleGamer  +   265d ago
I don't know how to feel. I really enjoyed the sailing in ACIV. In this game it seems like were taking a step into a smaller world to accommodate 4 player co-op.

With that said I'm also really excited about playing a 4 player co-op AC game. So consider me torn on this subject.
thunderbear  +   265d ago
It's a bit deceiving. Yes, it is "only" one city, but it's a massive city (bigger and more condensed with gameplay than previous entries) and they haven't even shown the massive catacombs. I haven't been an AC fan over the years, but this one has really gotten my attention. The improved movement, the crowds, the graphics, improved combat etc. Can't wait.

Oh, and I'm sure they'll bring back naval combat for next year. It was a huge task to create the tools for re-creating Paris and its AI that I think for the next entry they'll have those tools in place and can add back in naval combat (not that I enjoyed it that much).

Assassins's Creed: Hitman Absolution with Dishonoured mechanics !!! If EA would have shown this game, everyone would hate. But this is the game of copy-master Ubisoft. Isn't that why everyone is liking the game?

Nothing new here. Basically the same demo same gamplay.

I really, really liked black flag. Hopefully this one is just as good.

The world waits superior PS4 version
thunderbear  +   265d ago
And I await the superior PC version, hoping I can get the 880GTX before Unity comes out. I love my PS4, don't get me wrong, but if I can get way better antialaising, better LOD and better framerate then that is enough for me to go with the PC version.
thunderbear  +   265d ago
Really looking forward to this game. Truly looks next-gen in both gameplay and graphics. But this isn't really new footage, this is the exact same single player footage that is available to download in high quality, direct feed from E3.
mav805  +   265d ago
Ubisoft always manages to make AC games look good, but after Black Flag I kind of made a decision not to buy any more of these games. Ubisoft hasn't fixed the extreme repetitiveness, Black Flag didn't have a very good story, and despite Edward's life of stealing and murdering merchants, they kept trying to tell us what a good man he was. ACII:Brotherhood was the last one I actually liked.
jnemesh  +   265d ago
Meh, I will wait to see how the game REALLY looks when someone posts video from the PS4.
