By Ishaan . March 21, 2014 . 9:00am


Earlier in the week, gaming news blog Kotaku leaked screenshots from one of two upcoming Assassin’s Creed games, titled Assassin’s Creed: Unity. Following the leak, Ubisoft have shared an early look at the game themselves.


“We have been working on the new Assassin’s Creed for more than three years,” Ubisoft said, “and although we weren’t quite ready to show you our full vision for a next-gen only AC, it seems Abstergo are trying to force our hand!”


“So here’s a true first look at in-game footage from Assassin’s Creed Unity. Stay tuned—we’ll have many more exciting details for you in the months ahead!”


Assassin’s Creed: Unity is in development for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The game is reportedly set in Paris and is slated for release this holiday.

  • Taylor Greene

    I hope Connor gets to join in somehow. He would still be alive at this point as would Aveline.

    • Kornelious

      Me too, Connor is so under-appreciated :(

    • HassanJamal

      Considering Aveline is half french, it’d be wasted opportunity for her to not show up in this revolution. She could probable the one leading it.

  • CozyAndWarm

    dat Wii U tho

  • César H. Sandoval

    So, the French revolution… right?

    • natchu96

      The guillotines are suggesting that to me, yes.

  • natchu96

    I wonder if this guy is one of the more stay-focused-on-the-job no-nonsense types or if he’s the kind that jokes around while effortlessly taking people out.

    • Alexandra Cordes

      Please let there be jokes.

    • Symbol de Au

      He’s probably not Spiderman if that’s what you’re getting at.

  • Jungo

    So… what graphics engine is this in?
    Get it?

    • Altin


    • I-Cronus-I

      Maybe Snowdrop?

  • Alexandra Cordes

    I shall be in this corner, hoping for more female protagonists in this series.

    • Trotmeister

      If the story is good, what does it matter if the protagonist is male or female?

      • Alexandra Cordes

        It doesn’t. Of course I’m going to play it regardless.
        It’d be a nice bonus, is all.

        • I-Cronus-I

          It’s a male protagonist. You can see a part of his face and the body are kind of masculine.

      • Altin

        Now I want to have an AC in Japan while playing with a Kunoichi…Dang.

  • lordsofskulls

    *Will Wait for Discount* >.> Sorry it be a while before AC matches AC2/AC4 quality XD

  • Anewme…Again

    It’s funny how nowaday games look better during the alpha stage then they do in the final release…
    Watch Dogs and Dark Souls 2 are 2 good recent example and i’m sure this game won’t be any different.

  • Aaron Lee

    Now to see what “Comet” will turn out to be. Same setting but a wee bit different and outsourced to a C-tier team? Or is the twist going to be that Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor will turn out to be Assassin’s Creed: Mordor?

    Given that this game here is probably manned by French Canadians in Montreal, I’m shocked that we haven’t had an Ass Creed game set in France until now!

  • JAY

    Another year, another assassin creed.

  • Eder García

    looks like Ubisoft abandoned the WiiU for good

    • subsamuel01

      There’s still the other Assassins game coming out on 360 on PS3, the Wii U will probably get that version since the hardware capabilities are similar, compared to the PS4, X1 and PC which are in a league of their own.

    • s07195

      Nah, this AC will definitely come out on the Wii U.

      Aren’t Nintendo trying to put the ‘Unity’ engine on Wii U? XD

  • tturtlejosh

    If they give use the ability to use the guillotine I’ll buy it day one

  • pokeslob

    “coming this holiday” to us irishmen sounds like it’ll be released on saturday

  • Demeanor

    Yesss! This is exactly what I’ve been waiting for all these years, always dreamed of this setting! Graphics are drop-dead gorgeous.
    Now this game only needs a female protagonist, that would be really cool!
    I’ve been to Versailles not too long ago, it’ll be nice to see how they’ve recreated it :D

  • DarthSithZero

    I just don’t care about AC anymore, it use to be a good franchise now is just a Joke.

  • JustThisOne

    I don’t mean this in a mean way, but I hope this series ends soon. It’d be nice if companies would let tired franchises go out in style as opposed to driving them face first into the ground. This is the kind of thing that will reflect in sales before long…

    Maybe a spiritual successor, y’know?

    • DanijoEX ♬ the Cosmic Owl

      I would say that maybe they can take somewhat of a hiatus for the series…perhaps???

      Hard for me to say, since I’ve NEVER even played any of the games…

  • artemisthemp

    What bad guys was their in Unity time period?

  • Ric Vazquez

    What happened to the AC that was supposed to be set in Japan?! :O

  • Rabbit

    Wait the one for the next-gen is coming out this holiday? What about the one for current-gen? It’d make no sense to release it AFTER the next-gen title…

  • I think they realized how much better the setting of AC2 was when compared to AC3. I really preferred roaming around Florence and Venice then Boston.
