"Now I’m sure most, if not all of you are aware of the general concept behind Ubisoft’s annual Assassin series. Assassin’s Creed Unity is not really any different. Instead of playing as a person who’s sat using an Animus, you’re playing as a person using the ‘Helix’ system to enjoy action-packed historical games. Yes, that’s right, you’re playing as a person who’s playing a game, how meta. Usually the AC series has you jumping into ancestral genetic makeup and pulling through facts from time; Unity is once again a similar affair, but this time it’s not your genes you’re playing through. Still, the feud between the Assassins – painted as the ‘good guys’ – and the Templars – the series’ take on the ‘bad guys’ – exists and requires you to find certain items and secrets prised as valuable to both factions in the modern world."
