Assassin’s Creed Unity revolutionises on new generation consoles

1 min read

ACU night

“With the power of next generation processing” seems to be the mantra of a bunch of games releasing at the end of this year. Assassin’s Creed Unity is promising to use that extra power in all aspects of the game; from environmental design to seamless co-op, Ubisoft keeps raving that this is the Assassin’s Creed game that we’ve been waiting for. Now a new trailer wraps it all up quite neatly.

Here is the Assassin’s Creed Unity 101 trailer:

The video shows off five main elements:

  • The detailed environments include near 1:1 scale and up to 5k NPCs on the screen at once, as well as dynamic lighting.
  • Each assassin will be different. Players can customize Arno with unique clothing, weapons and skills, all of which carry over to co-op
  • Use each unique assassin to balance out your team in co-op – share skills to help your comrades with eagle vision or ammo while taking on story-based Brotherhood missions.
  • Encounter historical figures from the period, made even more realistic thanks to improved character design and motion capture.
  • Thanks to a time anomaly feature, you can even explore Paris in other time periods, such as Nazi occupied 1944. Climb the Eiffel Tower and fire machine guns.

Most of this is stuff we’ve heard before, although it’s nice to hear a bit more about the time anomaly. This could be a game seller for me – Assassin’s Creed games are always fun, but the more modern stuff is often lacking. This way, we can explore various version of Paris, without necessarily needing the entire game to be set in WWII France. It adds some new environmental options, without breaking the core of the game.

Now that everything that makes Assassin’s Creed Unity distinctly next generation is laid out, are you impressed? Is this what you’ve been hoping for from the stronger processing power, or will you have to wait and see?

    I’m definitely looking forward to this game. Thoroughly enjoyed ACIV and am really looking forward to Unity. I’ve always enjoyed the Assassin’s Creed games (yes, each to varying degrees – eg. I didn’t enjoy Brotherhood, but I loved Revelations), and I don’t think this will be any different. Can’t wait to get stuck in.

    Each guardian will be different. Players can customize their guardian with unique clothing, weapons and skills, all of which carry over to co-op. Use each unique guardian to balance out your team in co-op – share skills to help your comrades while taking on raids and strike missions.
    I’m kidding, this looks better and better the more I see, maybe this time I’ll be ready to do the time warp.

    “I’m happy to enlighten you guys because way too much bullshit about
    1080p making a difference is being thrown around. If the game is as
    pretty and fun as ours will be, who cares? Getting this game to 900p was
    a BITCH. The game is so huge in terms of rendering that it took months
    to get it to 720p at 30fps. The game was 9fps 9 months ago.”

    I agree, BLACK FLAG, FARCRY, GTAV, MGSV should have been in 900p like Watch Dogs, then they would sell 12 million copies in 1 month.
