Assassin’s Creed: Unity, is going to be released on October 28 for the Playstation 4, Xbox One, and the PC. The title will succeed the 2013 AC release, Black Flag and will be set during the French Revolution.
Paris, 1789. The French Revolution turns a once-magnificent city into a place of terror and chaos. Its cobblestoned streets run red with the blood of commoners who dare to rise up against an oppressive aristocracy. Yet as the nation tears itself apart, a young man named Arno will embark upon an extraordinary journey to expose the true powers behind the Revolution. His pursuit will throw him into the middle of a ruthless struggle for the fate of a nation, and transform him into a true Master Assassin. Introducing Assassin’s Creed Unity, the blockbuster franchise’s new chapter powered by the all new Anvil engine, rebuilt from the ground up for new gen. From the storming of the Bastille to the execution of King Louis XVI, experience the French Revolution as never before – and help the people of France carve an entirely new destiny.
Aside from a single-player mode, the game will also have a multiplayer story co-op mode where up to four players can take part in story missions, as well as explore the open world.
Navigation was also changed, with new “Parkour Up” and “Parkour Down” mechanics to make it easier for the player to navigate through buildings. The main character, Arno, also learns new parkour moves throughout the game but some moves can be purchased.
In cooperative multiplayer, players can go inside a tavern where they can see any friends that are currently playing the game. If the player is currently in a mission, they will appear as a ghost where others can opt to join the mission from there.
Make sure you have your copy pre ordered for October 28
