If you're an Assassin's Creed fan, this is the year for you. Not only are we getting an old-gen game called Rogue that continues the storyline from Black Flag/AC3, but we're also getting a brand new title exclusively for next-gen called Assassin's Creed Unity. If you're not an AC fan, and are instead one of those people who has never bothered with the series/got burnt out from the same old stuff every year, Unity may be the excuse you need to jump on the bandwagon. Unity is the first next-gen only title to be released and as such marks a turning point from the series, complete with new mechanics, new storyline, new characters and a new, hopefully fresh experience. There's plenty to get excited about here and fans of the series both new and old will more than likely find something great within the newest Assassin venture. That's the hope anyway! The series has always been quite divisive in the past; certain people love certain games, while many don't like others or the characters presented therein (i.e. ACIII), but - judging by the good old marketing machine so far - there's every chance Unity might just be exactly what the series needs. Here's 10 tantalising things we really can't wait to see when Unity launches officially on November 11th in North America and November 13th in Europe. Be warned; mild spoilers on plot of this game and previous entries may lie herein.
