Leaked Images Reveal One Of This Fall's Two Assassin's Creed Games

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

The story is too old to be commented.

Unity Assassin Creed interesting names

GarrusVakarian1678d ago (Edited 1678d ago )

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.

ArmGunar1678d ago

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

--Onilink--1678d ago

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

nope1111678d ago

I was hoping for China too but Paris during the revolution is an awesome setting.

Also, Egypt? really? that would be boring honestly.

BRAD-RIDGE1678d ago

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.

Braid1678d ago

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.

Idba1678d ago

Agreed. I wish and hope atleast one Asscreed game will be based in africa/asia. Especially north-Africa and China/Japan

-Foxtrot1678d ago (Edited 1678d ago )

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.

guitarded771678d ago

I'm less concerned with location and more concerned with the screenshots. Am I the only one who thinks this looks very last-gen?

gedapeleda1678d ago

I don't want to brag about it but I told you so

NukaCola1678d ago

Would love a true full next gen AC game with a smaller side title for the Vita. I really loved Liberation.

LiberatedAnimal1678d ago

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.

yezz1678d ago (Edited 1678d ago )

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...

starchild1678d ago

@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.

Skate-AK1678d ago

Sounds like The Saboteur to me. Just an earlier time period.

Lilrizky1678d ago

They're probably saving those locations for later games

aLucidMind1678d ago

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.

ginsunuva1678d ago

Ubisoft is french so they're gonna show off their frenchiness.

1677d ago
moujahed1677d ago

Ancient Egypt would've been the best choice I think.

ravinash1677d ago (Edited 1677d ago )

@ 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

Ezz20131678d ago

Too. much. information

3-4-51678d ago

Paris is cool. Hopefully we see some cool French art influence in the colors and art style of the city.

Evilsnuggle1678d ago

The only AC I would be interested in is feudal Japan. Black Flag was a brilliant idea also

xtremeimport1678d ago

They need to slow down with these games.
The taste is getting real sour really quick.

Axecution1678d ago (Edited 1678d ago )

yeah honestly this is the most milked series in gaming as far as i know. Overtaking even Guitar Hero imo

Mr-Dude1678d ago

@Axe

Ehm... Call Of Duty?

Seraphim1678d ago (Edited 1678d ago )

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.

Mr-Dude1678d ago

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

webeblazing1678d ago

Anyone else tired of them making this game.

Separate current gen and last gen games

superterabyte1678d ago

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.

Nerdmaster1678d ago

So now we'll have TWO games each year? Wow, and here I was thinking that one game every year was already too much...

curtis921678d ago (Edited 1678d ago )

@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.

Magicite1678d ago

Ubisoft is huge, they can afford even more than that. As long as quality keeps up, Im happy.

STICKzophrenic1678d ago

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.

JunoDivided1678d ago

Im hoping one for vita and the other for ps4/XBONE only but with the sales of the vita currently it is questionable

WeAreLegion1678d ago

If it's anything like The Saboteur, I'm in. Brilliant game.

OtakuDome1678d ago

Neogaf AC plane leak strikes again!

Redempteur1678d ago

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.

OtakuDome1678d ago

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.

Dudebro901678d ago

Sounds like they are focusing on each set of platforms. Nice. Id like to see what xbone and ps4 can do for this franchise
