Sipping delicious wine, $50, touring monstrous cathedrals, $20, slurping hot French Soup, $8, a brand-new assassin and seeing the Eiffel Tower, priceless.
Assassin's Creed has come to Paris, and we are ready to paint our masterpieces of death in the name of the French Revolution. Okay, so that's a little dark and we'll go ahead and pull back the drama meter a bit, but still, it's very exciting to know this year's Assassin's Creed Unity is heading back to land-dominated gameplay.
The last two iterations have split the land gameplay up quite a bit with enjoyable, entertaining naval gameplay, but it's time for the series to get back to its roots. Assassin's Creed is a game best fit for the shores and in Unity; players will be doing no sailing.
Assassin's Creed Unity stars the newest protagonist Arno Victor Dorian, who is a French-Austrian assassin taking the fight to the oppressive Great Britain. Set in the monstrous city of Paris, France, players will assume the role of Arno and will at times be able to join friends online for a little co-op action.
In Ubisoft's version of Paris, you will find no Les Misérables and the same goes for Russell Crowe. Paris will be a city that feels more alive than any other game before it, or at least that's what initial impressions tell us about the game. Fans who are wondering, Ubisoft has not given an update on where the present day storyline lies and whether or not it will continue the first-person plot from Black Flag.
This will be the first Assassin's Creed installment without a competitive multiplayer mode since Assassin's Creed II. Fans have clamored for co-op for years and as Ubisoft always does a fine job of listening to its fans, the company obliged.
