Assassin's Creed Unity was introduced to us a few months before E3 2014 and we were given a bigger glimpse into the world last month at E3. It's one of the most gorgeous games we've seen and could be one that raises the bar higher for what a current-gen game should look like on PS4 and Xbox One.
Assassin's Creed Unity marks a new beginning for the franchise in a number of ways, but the game is also a fine example of what AAA gaming can really look like on the PS4 and Xbox One. Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot talked about Assassin's Creed Unity and how it shows off the true capabilities of the PS4 and Xbox One.
"It’s a game that takes full advantage of the new gen. It’s really a good demonstration of what those machines can do. And people are amazed.
"They didn’t expect those machines to deliver that level of graphics and animation quality, the depth of the number of people that can move in the environment, and so on. It’s helping the brand to have a new beginning with totally different possibilities," Guillemot said.
Co-op was the major, new feature that was advertised back at E3 2014 and it is something fans have wanted in an Assassin's Creed game for quite sometime now. Assassin's Creed Unity is not only giving us another new hero but it's taking us to Paris. There are so many possibilities with this upcoming game and since Ubisoft's HQ is based in Paris, it's safe to say the development team has their work cutout for themselves.
Assassin's Creed Unity will be the first of Ubisoft's major fall lineup, followed by Far Cry 4 and The Crew. Assassin's Creed Unity will also be the first Ubisoft game that comes to PS4, Xbox One and PC only. We should have a great idea of what is possible on the consoles when Assassin's Creed Unity launches on Oct. 28.
