The size of "Assassin's Creed Unity" has been compared to "Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag." According to a report by VG247 on July 29, the upcoming video game features a land mass that is three times as big as the playable area found in the previous installment. As a result, "Assassin's Creed Unity" is going to be the biggest game in the series in terms of size.
Ubisoft was able to increase the play area significantly as it is only being released on the PC as well as the PS4 and Xbox One. The development team do not have to worry about making the same game run on the PS3 and Xbox 360. However, the company is still rumored to be releasing a new game, which may be called "Assassin's Creed Comet," in the series this year for the two current-generation consoles.
The game length for "Assassin's Creed Unity" was also mentioned as the main campaign is expected to take anywhere between 15 hours to 20 hours. To do everything, including finding all collectibles, players should end up taking around 100 hours. Despite being a massive game, Ubisoft promised that there won't be any load times during cut scene to real-time gameplay transitions and vice versa.
The new game is also using the more powerful hardware to add four-player cooperative gameplay, which is a first for the open-world action-adventure series. Players will be able to team up with three other friends to tackle missions in the massive open-world. The new mode also caused a bit of a controversy as some members of the gaming community became upset over the lack of a playable female character.
"Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag" first came out on Oct. 29 of last year. "Assassin's Creed Unity" is set to arrive almost a year later on Oct. 28. A screen of the PC, PS4 and Xbox One video game can be seen near the top side of this article (via the official Facebook account of the popular series).
