(PS4) Assassin's Creed: Unity

A next-gen only title. This will be a regular AssCreed title with the extensive single player story, but the hook is a separate 2-4 player co-op mode as multiple user assassin's take down targets.

Kotaku | Paris France is huge in the game.

AC Unity's Paris is bigger than all of the land masses of AC IV put together. The Notre Dame Cathedral was built to be a 1:1 replica in game.

Other tidbits:
>> Co-op missions are story-based missions, but optional.
>> There is no competitive multiplayer mode like games past (thank god)
>> You can now crouch.
>> There will be a modern day component to the game, just like all the other installments.

NeoGAF | Notes from the latest Game Informer
Was reading through the new GI magazine and their story on AC Unity and it added some things I didn't know, so I figured a recap thread might be good. Mods, lock if not allowed.

  • Been in development since 2010. After Brotherhood a team broke off and started on Unity.
  • Skill leveling is in, and you can choose to drop points in stealth, combat, or navigation. You could potentially make a tank who is awesome at fighting, or a better stealth player.
  • You can now customize your legs, boots, forearms, chest, hood, and mask. And the armor/clothing has attributes like a hood that makes you blend faster in crowds and a belt that allows you to hold more items.
  • Co-op missions can be done solo as well and have multiple difficulties. You can also explore the whole world in co-op
  • They realized that with the multiplayer in the last games they were essentially making two separate games, and they didn't want to do that. They noted that people buy the game for the campaign and the added-on multiplayer wasn't the same experience, so they went back to the drawing board to get co-op in.
  • They are using a similar technique as Watch Dogs for co-op, in your game you are always Arno, and everyone else looks like other brotherhood members, but in their game they are Arno and you look like a brotherhood member (like how you are always Aiden in Watch Dogs).
  • NO MORE AUTO-FAIL MISSIONS! The missions now adapt to what happens when you play and don't follow any script. There will be changes and consequences for how you handle missions, but no longer will you get desynchronized for being spotted.
  • You use the new rapid descend ability from buildings by hitting RT + B. Haystacks still exist, but they found you don't use them near as often now.
  • The interiors really open up the game. You can run into a building to hide from guards, but there may be guards inside too. You can also use interiors for assassinations, hiding in windows, etc.
  • You really notice the new 1:1 scale for buildings, and the amount of buildings on the streets seems higher than any of the other games.
  • Stealth mode softens your footsteps, but you still move rapidly. Great for sneaking up on guards.
  • New cover system makes hiding easier and you can now peek.
  • Guards no longer automatically know where you are at all times once alerted, they will now search your last known location which makes it easier to get away and even flank them.
  • Combat is now harder. You may be able to beat 2-3 guys but 5 is too many. You have to pay attention to what weapons enemies have now. "For the first time, we have boss fights that are about parrying at the right time, making sure you dodge, and not spamming the attack button."
  • The NPC groups now react to each other. Thugs may attack you on sight, but guards/police won't unless provoked. Police may go after thugs, which means you can lure thugs to police and watch the police go after them.
  • They are starting a "new cycle" with the present day stuff. "You are the protagonist ultimately." You will understand in the first 20 minutes of the game where they are going with it. It's "cool" and "very, very surprising."
  • There can be up to 30,000 people in a crowd.

Polygon | AssCreed delayed to November.

I believe that every major game that was crowded into October has been delayed at some point.

The latest AssCreed trailer has quite the twist thrown in to it.  The hero will jump timelines from the French Revolution to the World War II era at some point. And with no crummy multiplayer tacked on, this is looking like a maybe buy now instead of a no buy.

Reviews
Ubisoft placed an embargo for reviews of Unity for 12 hours after release. That's always a major red flag that there are major issues with the game, and they hope that they can still squeeze purchases from the hardcore that refuse to wait. Ubisoft wasn't confident in the game, as justified by the scores below, likewise, Dragon Age developer BioWare set the embargo a full week before the game release, to huge praise.

IGN | 7.8 / 10
Gamespot | 7.0 / 10
Polygon | 6.5 / 10
Joystiq | 2.5 / 5 Stars
Kotaku | No / Yes/No/Maybe Scale

The praise includes the game being absolutely beautiful. People are split, many call the missions generic and boring, while others enjoyed it. The lamest part, is part of the game is locked out, unless you unlock the content via the internet, or via the companion app for iOS or Android.
