Let Them Eat Cake!

Assassin's Creed Unity logo

We have been working on the new Assassin’s Creed for more than three years, and wanted to find the perfect time to give you an early taste of the game. Apparently though, the Templar Order was hungry to know more right now. To this, we say “Qu’ils mangent de la brioche!” (“Let them eat cake!”) Help yourself to a serving of the first official footage from the next-gen only Assassin’s Creed Unity. Stay tuned – we’ll have many more exciting details for you in the future.

Assassin's Creed Unity

Release date — November 11, 2014
Developer — Ubisoft Montreal
Paris, 1789. The French Revolution turns a once-magnificent city into a place of terror and chaos. Its cobblestoned streets run red with the blood of commoners who dare to rise up against an oppressive aristocracy. Yet as the nation tears itself apart, a young man named Arno will embark upon an extraordinary journey to expose the true powers behind the Revolution. His pursuit will throw him into the middle of a ruthless struggle for the fate of a nation, and transform him into a true Master Assassin.

hello to time'm fan of the franchise Assassin's Creed, played all the games, come through this blog to expose a fear I have for the new game in the franchise "unity" First I want to say that I loved the idea of ​​playing the game story with friends through co -op, but I have a not so positive thinking, I heard that Ubisoft removed the competitive multiplayer, is this true? if it is, the story will be longer than it was in Black Flag or any previous game in the series? My fear is the life of the game for me, usually I end up in a week 100% synchronization, so if I play with my friends and finish the game,what I'll have to do? I have to keep repeating missions ever? need to wait expect DLC's for new missions? many people talk bad the multiplayer but I am one who supports and loves to play the multiplayer, I like to customize my characters to the max there, and thats become some kind of goal/objective after i end my singleplayer game, that finish up giving longer life to the game for me, so would like if someone took that doubt about the multiplayer and answer me, and I wish someone on the production team could at least read my review.

Ezio spent a significant amount of time in Istanbul during Revelations. Turkey is in Asia, albeit Western Asia. With that being said, a game set in a different part of Asia would work due to the large variety of cultures found throughout the continent. Personally, I think it is time to revisit Jerusalem and its surrounding area. Perhaps during the dark ages or even during the beginnings of the Industrial Age. It is time for the Assassins to reclaim Masyaf! The Assassins need to rebuild for the fight against Juno and what better way to inspire those who follow the creed than to reclaim the ancient home of the assassins and the final resting place of Altair!

Can you please tell me why you are not making the game for the PS 3. The franchise came out way before the PS 4. Now I'm going to have to buy a whole new system so I can continue to play the franchise. I'm a huge fan of the game. Don't be a corporate sell out. Give the people what they want please. It's bad enough that Liberation was on a different. System. Not everyone can afford a new system every year. Fight for the true fans, and not the corporation. Just advise them that they can sell more units if they spread the wealth. Money always talks with these people.

I may be slightly late to the party, but I figured I may as well suggest some things.

Hi Ubisoft! ^^ I am very happy to see the Assassin's Creed franchise trucking onward! I've been a fan for a few years now, and I have not been disappointed yet! (Although Desmond's death was somewhat sudden and early. ><)

But I have a suggestion for a future game! I am unsure how much people would be upset with me suggesting such an idea, but I would like a game where we play during the Human-First Civilization War, as a human who uses their free-running skills to infiltrate First Civilization cities, and basically becomes a precursor to an Assassin?

I am sorry if this idea is rather amateur, I am thinking of it n the spot a little. But I do think a lot more insight on the elusive forerunner civilization would be most appreciated! This enigmatic chunk of lore is far too mighty to just let be a case of Ancient Aliens!

I hope you guys are having a wonderful day! Remember to keep your chins up no matter what. ^^

There are so many people that love the Assassins Creed franchise and still use PS3 and Xbox 360 and will continue to use only them. AC Unity should not only only be on next gen, there would be a lot of unhappy people. Thanks:)

domnsmith 5pts

There are so many people who have the PS3 and Xbox 360 and will continue to only use them. AC Unity should REALLY be on thoseconsoles as well, not just next gen. Thanks:)

CSerpent 5pts

Well, I'm definitely disappointed with Nintendo about the Wii U! Now I'm going to have to buy the XBox 1 because my console isn't a next-gen! Didn't everyone say it was the next big thing?! Now they aren't even making the wii games anymore and shifting their focus, so I thought they would at least shift to a good console!!!

My son is very upset that the upcoming AC game won't be on Xbox 360. We're on a tight budget and he has to save for everything. He loves this game so much. Please relent and put it out on xbox 360. Please.

chris 5pts

Hi, I'm not sure if this would be the right place for these two, But i would hope some one like you guys do with assassin's creed & maybe have a world war 1 game separate from assassin's creed but in a third person Stealth action game in all of Europe in trenches and such. I would love to see that, You guys do pretty well with third person stealth action adventures games like: Assassin's creed & splinter cell.

Also, maybe you guys can have a real time strategy genre similar to age of mythology, But in it'sown franchise similar to it.


Mike 5pts

And I agree with Ryan P. I will always buy Assassins Creed games no matter what you all decide! They are by far the most fun and exciting gaming experiences for me.

Mike 5pts

Dear Ubisoft, I do think that something during the 1800's old West would be great. Perhaps the 1849 gold rush in California, Lewis and Clark, the Alamo (my personal favorite), American Civil War, or even a Wild West setting would be very popular. Due to the success of Red Dead Redemption I think the market is wide open for a high quality "western" setting.

I love all the ACs but Alitair and Ezio are my favorites and so were the areas we played in. I would love the see the China girl or even a grandson of Alltair or Ezio in the Baltics. Please keep up the great work. PS the music is mostly awesome too.

I was never a role playing game guy until assassins creed first came out. I only played sports games. These games are great and they continue to get better as they go along as far as the gameplay and ideas. I know everyone's favorite character was Ezio of coarse but i really feel Black Flag made you forget about that and enjoy something new. It's excellent game! I think the Edward Kenway story could be added onto (maybe a dlc) where he goes back to England and continue being an assassin and raise his son haythem and later play as him turning bad and carrying out templar missions leading up to sailing to America? All of the other ideas i think are great as well. The French Revoltion, Russia, Ancient Egypt, Japan, China and the Civil War are all great places for this game and hope you keep pumping them out. I will buy all of them! A few ideas of mine that i haven't heard from others are Ancient Greece, the Mayan period or how about the Vikings! That would bring some naval back into the game and i think could be a really intersting idea. Or would they ever consider putting out a remake of the first game with Altair or different chronicles of him? I think the new gameplay would have been great with that game and time period. How about going back to where the creed began? What period would that be? Or who was the originator of the creed? If u keep making them, i'll keep buying them. I look forward to many more!!!!!

Wait..... so you already presenting the new assassin's creed but you havent even fix the errors on Assassin's crees black flag multiplayer.. sounds a little suspicious and stupid.

So from the looks of it this next AC game (unity) will most likely won't be on ps3 because of it being next gen right?

Ian 5pts

One more thing what if the new assassins main weapon is a pair of golden rapiers that would be my fav and then a side if dual revolver action

Ian 5pts

I think I like where the ubi team is going! For instance since we've gone back to a similar ezio type character the story should come back alive!!! Second with new truely next gen features we could get a whole new array of weapons. Third a great story and true next gen features should make an amazing game:)

chris 5pts

Looking forward to this new Assassin and setting in France of the french revolution & Napoleon wars. Also hoping & Ireland setting & knights of the round table king arthur setting too:) Nice job ubisoft you got me again:) i'm a sucker for history, looking forward to the future franchise and the new engine:).

So exited how Arnaud is so much like my last name Renaud. I called it for the french revolution btw. I hope the war of 1812 comes in at sometime. I always imagined Canada to be runned by Assassins.

First thing that came to mind was the French Revolution, so they have already captured the perfect feel of that time. Props to Ubi.

Mantiskilla 5pts

Should Ubi track record holds...

PC version gets delayed in 3...2....1....

Its not like they don't delay everything on PC anyway (See Trials Fusion). Wouldn't be surprised if Watch Dogs gets pushed back just so they can make console sales first.

But then again, what else is new

Sam 5pts

This game looks like it will be amazing, I am really excited to how the plot will go, what people I will be jumping from roofs on and stabbing them with a hidden blade.. I am also intrigued about what will happen to the present day stuff. Are we still us? or are we a certain character like Desmond? or is there even a present day? I would also like to find some details on the current gen version "Comet" or something like that.. That will be an interesting tale... I would like to see maybe to seperate storylines from two assassins in the same area.. like We have this french guy (whoever knows his name) but in "comet" we should have like a best friend or partner I would like to see something like that.. but I guess its up to Ubisoft to decide, and I will play either one

Eddy 5pts

I suppose I shouldn't have expected more from the video. Does anyone know if Unity is what it will be called like ACB and ACR or is just a temporary or code name and/or will it be a number?

tekkers 5pts

They cant make unity for 360 an PS3 due to limitations on the console such as having the ability to have mass dense crowds which the french revoloution setting wouldn't be achievable without.

James 5pts

I definitely agree

Sam 5pts

thats why they are making another AC game exclusively for current gen.. codenamed comet
