Assassin’s Creed: Unity Could Roll Heads In The French Revolution
Everyone knows that there’s another Assassin’s Creed coming this year. The franchise has seen a major release every year since 2009, so it’s more a matter of when than if with Ubisoft at this stage. And while there’s still no official word, we may have just got our first glimpse at where Assassin’s Creed is headed next.
Supposedly title Assassin’s Creed: Unity, the new instalment will be set in France during the 18th century. Namely, during the famous French Revolution.

If you frequent our podcasts, you probably have heard us speaking about how this historical period specifically would just make perfect sense for an Assassin’s Creed title. The leaked screens, which come from an anonymous source, look like extremely early captures of alpha gameplay. They look extremely credible, so I won’t chalk them up to a hoax just yet.
Probably the most interesting feature from the screenshots is the inclusion of dedicated “parkour up” and “parkour down” buttons, which could be our first hint at a new and improved movement system.
The tipster also suggested that Ubisoft would go the route of two separate games fro each of the console generations, supposedly to free developers from the trouble of cross-generation development. Unity will apparently be the next-generation version, releasing on Xbox One and PS4. Another title, supposedly named Comet, will release on Xbox 360 and Ps3. PC may also get both.
But as of now, this is all rumour smoke without a confirmed fire. I don’t expect it to be long until Ubisoft officially announce something, especially with E3 just a few months away, but right now I’m really like this direction.
