Assassin’s Creed Unity is going to be huge!

2 min read


Every time I hear something new about Assassin’s Creed Unity, I become just that little bit more excited. Odd, because when it was first announced I was filled with little more than apathy. We’ve known for a while that the playable map for the next game would be huge, but we had no idea just how huge it would be. According to a purportedly leaked image, Assassin’s Creed Unity’s Paris is nearly as big as the real thing.

A Reddit user by the name of Skelaa has posted up what appears to be the game’s full map, and it’s actually rather ludicrous how large it is.Check it out:


In fact, when compared to an actual map of Paris from the era, it compares rather favourably. Click to embiggen.


We knew it would be big.  Lesley Phord-Toy, Assassin’s Creed Unity producer, revealed that Unity’s Paris will be larger than the entire land mass in Black Flag.

In previous Assassin’s Creed games, we did Rome and a bunch of other cities, they were a bit cheated in terms of scale.In Paris, the monuments are done in 1:1 because you are able to go inside seamlessly with no loading, and so the actual size of Paris is larger than all of the landmass in AC IV: Black Flag.

If you consider that one in every four buildings will be fully modelled inside and out on a 1:1 scale, I think it’s safe to say that Unity will be absolutely staggering in breadth. It also goes a long way to explaining why Ubisoft is just too damned busy to create female player characters, right? Right.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
