More footage is coming from the Assassin’s Creed Unity Launch Livestream. This time around you get to see some open world gameplay commented by Producers Aleissa Laidacker and Philippe Duchame.
They weren't kidding with the enormous crowds part. And you can play 4 player co-op too. Something past AC's never did... I swear I would like a certain person to comment on this info and hear his opinion with all this latest information out. But I'm sure he'll stay quiet.
I agree you can see the city has more people compared to previous games. You can see now why Ubisoft was struggling with the AI part of the game.
Holy S***, look at that frame rate. WTF is that glitch at 3:50? New Assassin ability now allows you to blend through walls, literally.
Okay.My ousin has the game.And he says there's a section that has an unbelievably HUGE crowd.And they're not static.Like realistic crowds.He says it felt crazy while doing a leap of faith during that section.
Watching this can't help but feel been there, done that, and I am a huge AC fan.
I feel you brother :(
This game will beat AC2 for once!
Not really a chance of it beating AC2. Every AC, the story and characters get more and more watered down. The soundtrack gets watered down. The combat gets simplified. Everything gets more accessible. AC1 was the best. Not even AC2. OMG I WOULD LOVE A REMASTER OF AC1. Maybe in AC4 engine.
Same here, I mean shoot I have the AC logo tattooed on me. I mean, it's really pretty, lots of crowds, and big... But, it still kinda feels the same as the rest from what I've seen. I'll no doubt play it at some point, I'm just not sure what they can do to make it feel different. You know, aside from the whole 'feudal Japan' thing they seem to want to stay clear of for some reason. I think that would be a big change in scenery and people, and something like that could do wonders to refresh the players that have AC fatigue.
Well you can't expect Assassins creed to suddenly turn into uncharted or tomb raider into halo, if they changed this game to something else then it wouldn't be Assassins creed, that is the whole point of a sequel. How many games can you name that changed from the one before? I buy assassin games because they offer a type of experience that is not found in other games and when I want change I simply play another game.
@Sashamaz - I'm not asking for a drastic change, just enough to make the experience feel new again. As I said, I'm not entirely sure how they can go about doing that without changing things too much, but... Well, I've just found myself being a little bored of AC lately. Although I had a lot of fun with Black Flag.
If the changes they are bringing with Unity aren't drastic enough for you I doubt any reasonable change would be enough for you. Just play something else. They would literally have to change Assassin's Creed into a different game to satisfy some of you. The improvements they have made to the traversal mechanics, the combat, the mission structure, the customization, the presentation, and the stealth mechanics feel dramatic to me. Most series don't see changes or improvements this significant. It seems quite fresh to me.
@starchild - I think you're missing my point. It's not about gameplay changes. It's about the scenery, and cultures themselves. I already stated above that I'm not asking for drastic changes. So I'm not sure why you're implying that reasonable changes wouldn't be enough for people like me. I'm tired of the same looking cities/towns every AC game. I want something visually different. Black Flag was a great way to change things up visually, as you were at sea for a lot of that game. If we had some more modern day Assassin's Creed games, or something set in a more Asian part of the world... Egypt could be cool too, or a Roman setting. Just something that changes things up, that's all I really want.
Ok, I misunderstood you. If you had been talking about gameplay changes I was finding it hard to understand how the changes they have made wouldn't seem enough. But in terms of scenery I agree with you. I'm getting tired of the European type cities. We need something new that feels more exotic or at least different for the series. So, yeah, sorry, I actually completely agree with you.
@starchild - No worries, I probably could have worded my slight complaints a bit better lol. My fatigue does rest solely with the scenery. The gameplay, and stories of the Assassin's Creed world are still very interesting for me personally. I just typically find that it's hard to keep interest, when the style of the cities/towns are nearly the same as the last several games. It's why I mentioned feudal Japan, Egypt, and the Roman empire periods of time. They all seem like they could be a great way to change things up visually. And, they would certainly renew my excitement in starting a new AC game.
the could have focused on whats going on in the future.
I agree.. I just can't seem to get excited for this either...
looks soo boring!
In coop do all players have the same faces?
Disagrees for asking a simple question? Lol ok
I think it means no. No they don't. It's randomised
The graphics don't look that good. Idk about buying this.. I'll just get Far Cry 4 or something......
Ok first of all, yes they do look good. They look GREAT. Second off, how is that a reason not to buy the game? Third off, if you were gonna buy nothing but cross gen titles like Far Cry, why did you get a Ps4!?
@geekman he didn't mention ps4 r u trolling or just assumed
Get help, you need it.
You're blind. This is one of the best looking games so far. It has more advanced graphics than Far Cry 4 that's for sure.
Meh.. I have AC: Black Flag, but really haven't played it much. Doubt I'll be getting this game for $60.
What, black flag was something fress and new, but now they go back to this same old, run there kill this guy or run there and stop that mop, looks boring and repeating it's self
Yeah but in this AC there are thousands of NPC's milling around doing nothing... /s
Maybe I'm only excited because I haven't played an AC game since the first one. I watched the entire live stream event in awe of how great this game looks and plays. Sorry you AC fans don't feel the same way, but I can't wait.
Certain people have been hating on this game since it was announced. It has nothing to do with the quality of the game or anything like that.
Need more time to understand
Screw what anyone else says. This really looks next gen to me. The crowds and groups of people in every corner and the insane draw distance and density of the map is very next gen. There is no way this could have been done on 360 and PS3.
Agreed. This seems like the most next gen game I have seen yet. The detail, the massive scale, the quality of assets and effects, the huge number of NPCs...all of it looks amazing.
I'm not so sure about this. It looks like more of the same, barring Black Flag. Black Flag was great because of the whole pirate thing. Unity looks like Brotherhood. If the missions are dynamic more than just catch that thief and the co-op is really fleshed out then I'll pick this up. But I'm probably gonna hold off a bit, I think. That's too bad because I was really looking coward to this one. They promised the combat would have more depth but I have yet to see that.
Agreed.The game looks marvelous.They could realy achieve to create a living city.Yesterday a guy was playing XO version onTwitch I must say that I am realy impressed.The lighting,texturing,smoke and fog are top notch with this game,draw distance is very good..That crowd!!!!Just saying....
900 P game. I really pass in this one...
Its totaly crazy that this isn't 1080P and 60FPS. That's BS!! These new consoles are easily one fifth as powerful as my PC, they should easily be able to do that.
Week for the release and their latest build/demo has some obvious bugs. Same old Ubi.
