Assassin’s Creed Unity: 10 Incredible Rumours That Could Happen
Black Flag regained the series' footing somewhat, but what must be done to stay on top?
Assassin’s Creed has always been a polarising series. Some love the weird amalgamation of history with sci-fi elements, the parkour which has amazed us since it debuted in the original game way back in 2007 and the satisfaction which comes from leaping on an ill-fated Templar and puncturing him with the iconic Hidden Blade. Conversely, others find the gameplay repetitive, the trailing missions infuriating and the narrative convoluted and confusing.
2014 promises to be a pivotal year for the series in which Ubisoft will endeavour to overcome its polarising perception and broaden the appeal with some exciting new additions. Expectations are particularly high for Assassin’s Creed Unity as this will be the first game built from the ground up to run on next-gen hardware – excitingly reports released recently suggest that Ubisoft claim to have squeezed every drop from Sony and Microsoft’s powerful consoles. This is consistent with what we saw at E3 as the gameplay demos the developer chose to show off are graphically sublime.
