"Next-gen" remains a highly subjective term but most would agree that nothing has been crazy impressive in 2014. Will the new AC entry blow us all away?
It has improved lighting and improved animation quality. Everything else is pretty much at the same level as Assassin's Creed IV was.
The seamlessness,the combat,the stealth,the AI,crowd,cloth physics,AMM(Adaptive Mission Mechanics),Mod missions,Black-box type mission design,co-op...basically EVERYTHING has improved.And you're saying that barely anything has changed.LOL
not to mention the climbing/descending buildings has been completely overhauled
You're crazy. it's not even close. This is a huge advance for the Assassins Creed series. Not sure what video's are watching but it's really not even close.
Are you crazy?! Did you see the detail in the world?! Now on top of that is up to 30,000 AI in crowds, a quarter of buildings accessible (not accomplished by any game in the past) along with all the other additions.. Assassins Creed haters are gonna hate but you have to admit that this game is a technological beast.
That's untrue. The skin shaders are much much better. The hair is vastly better. The whole game now uses physically based rendering which results in dramatically better looking materials in terms of the realism of the way light interacts with them. The scale is bigger and the number of animated NPCs is a huge jump up. I could keep going on, but suffice to say that Unity is definitely a big leap in multiple areas. From everything I have seen, I'd say this is probably the most graphically advanced game releasing this year.
This looks to be the step up the series has needed since AC2. Not saying I haven't enjoyed the other games (and Black Flag almost felt like a different series) but they had stalled somewhat.
Agreed. I love all the games, but I am waiting for the one to properly rival AC 2.
i was about to get a little angry there untill you said Black Flag That was By far the best Assassin's creed game i have played can't wait for Assassin's Creed Unity and Rogue
Ah, Paris... I can hardly wait to give those cheese-eating surrender monkeys a taste of my blade... VIVA LA REVOLUTION!!!
