Written by: / / 7 Comments


Ubisoft has been a good sport about the recent image and information leaks surrounding the publisher’s next Assassin’s Creed game by officially announcing Assassin’s Creed: Unity for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 while additionally releasing the game’s debut (and very impressive) in-game trailer.

The video is taken from ‘alpha’ game footage and still has a ways to go until the game is complete, but according to a Ubisoft statement, Unity has been in development for three years in various forms:

“We have been working on the new Assassin’s Creed for more than three years, and wanted to find the perfect time to give you an early taste of the game. Apparently though, the Templar Order was hungry to know more right now. To this, we say “Qu’ils mangent de la brioche!” (“Let them eat cake!”).

“Help yourself to a serving of the first official footage from the next-gen only Assassin’s Creed: Unity. Stay tuned – we’ll have many more exciting details for you in the future.”

According to reports, and seemingly verified by the video, Assassin’s Creed: Unity is set in Paris during the French Revolution at the end of the 18th century. Reports doing the rounds state that a companion Assassin’s Creed game is also in development for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
