A Ubisoft panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2014 showed off E3 2014 Assassin’s Creed: Unity demo running on the Xbox One. Both versions are the same, except for a minor difference in some animations on the Xbox One which you might find impressive.
The video also has the developers explaining various elements in depth and as to how certain things exactly work. This includes information on how factions on the street fight against each other, how the stealth mechanics work and just how much freedom the open world gives to players.
The quality of the video is far from being average, but it’s the next-best thing to having nothing at all. Perhaps Ubisoft will release a better-quality version in the days to come.
One thing to note is that the demo is from an older version of the game, and hence some elements may not be the same in the final version.
Recently script writer Travis Stout posted on the Ubisoft blog, revealing details on the main character’s personality.
Assassin’s Creed: Unity’s protagonist Arno is said to be a “blueblood with an ostentatious habit of quoting from classic books.” His family has been part of the Assassin Order for generations and he himself is very driven.
“He is haunted by mistakes in his past or perceived mistakes, that he feels he must atone for,” wrote Stout.
“He is very devoted to the Assassin Order as an ideal but, at the same time, he is not as impressed with the weight of the long mystical tradition and ancient rhetoric as some of the other Assassins.”
Assassin’s Creed: Unity is scheduled for release later this year for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
