Ubisoft: Assassin's Creed Unity's Paris is larger than Black Flag's landmass

Assassin's Creed Unity is taking players to the world of Paris for the first time in the series history, and with so much potential for this world, it has to be larger than previous ones we've experienced. We spoke with Ubisoft about just how large Assassin's Creed Unity will be and fans won't be disappointed.

Black Flag featured a large amount of land across its world, but it was more spread out, making it seem a bit smaller at times. In an exclusive interview with Examiner.com, Lesley Phord-Toy, who is a producer on Assassin's Creed Unity, revealed that the size of Paris in Assassin's Creed Unity will indeed be larger than that of Black Flag's landmass.

"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," Phord-Toy said.

This is very exciting to see Assassin's Creed come to Paris and with the size of this world, it's hard not to think about previous installments like Brotherhood's Rome. We also were able to have Ubisoft confirm that players will be able to travel outside of Paris to the Palace of Versaille, which nowadays is about a 30 minute train-ride from Paris.

Ubisoft plans on giving players the freedom to explore all of the famous monuments that are in Paris, including The Catacombs and more. We've only seen a few snippets of gameplay for Assassin's Creed Unity, but this game looks to be the one of the prettiest games and potentially the deepest world yet.

This is definitely a shift for the Assassin's Creed franchise, moving back to a more city-based world, as we haven't seen the series do so since Assassin's Creed: Revelations with Constantinople. The previous two iterations, Assassin's Creed III and Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag certainly had a lesser focus on cities.

It will be great to explore the city of Paris and all it has to offer. Assassin's Creed Unity will launch on Oct. 28 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC only.
