Assassin’s Creed: Unity has Two Unusable Guillotines, no Ships, and no Horses

By   /   Jul 22, 2014

A couple of days ago, Facebook fan-page Access the Animus posted news about Assassin’s Creed: Unity, which they said to have obtained through the retailer GAME.

Much of what was shared has already been told by Ubisoft, but there are some other pointers that are worth mentioning. A total of eight pointers were shared, here they are:

  • Characters like Altair and Ezio have been really important in the progression of the Brotherhood through history so there will be bound to be mentions of those characters in the game.
  • Arno has a point on the hood even if it doesn’t seem in the gameplay and that’s because it is very small.
  • The co-op is always through the internet and this means that the player won’t be able to play with friends in the same room.
  • The other Assassins that we are seeing in the trailer are there to represent the possibility of playing with three friends. They don’t have a background story because, in a way, they all are Arno if we consider that every coop player will control Arno while playing with his friends.
  • There will be two guillotines in the city of Paris but the player won’t be able to use them.
  • There won’t be ships because the only body of water is the Seine and it is too narrow to have large ships with naval combat.
  • Catacombs and sewers won’t be mission as Assassin’s tombs/Romulus missions were. Thanks to the next-gen, the player will be able to access those places seamlessly and this means that they will be part of the same game experience and not separate missions.
  • There won’t be horses: Paris will be too much dense for a horse and in addition, Amancio stated that their intent was to make the player travel slowly through the city because it is densely packed with opportunities and missions.
  • With the Phantom blade the player will be able not only to kill people from the distance but to poison them too.

I like the prospect of poisoning my targets from afar and then tailing them through the streets just to make sure they meet their end. It beats having to go down and deal with them in close range.

Assassin’s Creed: Unity will release on October 28 for the PS4, Xbox One and PC.
