Play-Asia.com E3 Hype Train: Assassin's Creed Unity
E3 is that time of year where gamers gush over all the new titles, graphics, gameplay, and generally nerd out to our absolute favorite thing in the world: video games. We at Play-Asia.com are no different, and throughout this week we will be stopping the Hype Train at all our favorite E3 stops. Get the conductor to punch your ticket, the Hype Train is leaving the station!
The Assassin's Creed franchise has been a video game icon for some years now, and while it has had its ups and downs AC Unity looks like a return to former glory. Taking place during the French Revolution you'll be joining a new assassin, Arno Dorian, as he fights our familiar foes, The Templar, amidst a politically torn 18th century France.
As is expected, Ubisoft have built a beautifully detailed world that should capture the intensity of the French Revolution - and if getting lost in the streets of an entirely navigable Paris rendered at a 1:1 ratio isn't enough, maybe the (claimed) crowds of up to 5,000 individuals rioting will bring forth your inner revolutionist!
With stronger hardware comes a much fuller world, making it easier to immerse the player in a time and place in history. The city will be alive with different factions fighting amongst themselves, merchants and shopkeepers actively selling their wares, and individuals persuing motives of their own.
But let's be honest, the Assassin's Creed franchise has never been truly lacking when it comes to world creation, it has been the combat holding it back. Unity seemingly solves this issue allowing your assassin to properly deal with more than one enemy at a time, with groups of enemies actually attacking as a group (not a congo line to their death). The combat has been made purposely harder, requiring you to respond to various attack types, as well as introducing the parry mechanic. The more difficult combat will force emphasis onto the new stealth mechanics, fighting when you are at the advantage, much like a true assassin.
Ubisoft describes Unity as a "shared experience", meaning that the lines between single and multiplayer are largely blurred. The story will follow the protagonist Arno, with 2/3 of the missions being single player, but also includes 'Brotherhood Missions' where up to 4 assassins can be found tearing it up together.
