Yarr matey - wait.

Edit: Oh, the cut in the logo is from the guillotine. That's cool.

I've always enjoyed the "get's leaked and announced the next day" phenomenon.

Posted by Garbo

I've been kind of down on the Assassin's Creed series since Brotherhood, but if they can nail the insanity of the French Revolution and if the light rumors of a female protagonist are true, then I'm back on board.

Ohh The Notre Dame..Very nice

Ubisoft sure has some gaul to release a game set in France.

Posted by Hassun

French revolution is not a bad setting, but with their release schedule I really REALLY hope they finally get rid of the poor mission design and lacklustre combat.

Naming a game after a popular game engine you're NOT using. That won't create any confusion...

Needs more pirate ships and sea shanties.

Awesome setting within a gameplay framework that has felt old since, like, Brotherhood. :(

I remember a while ago on the Bombcast the guys were talking about what they wanted from the next Assassin's Creed, and they didn't know. I feel the same way. I just DO NOT GIVE A FUCCCCCCKK about Assassin's Creed as it currently is. The mission structure and gameplay has just become tiresome to me. But if the game was completely redesigned, I dunno if that would do much either.

Eh. It'll look amazing and the French Revolution was rad. So I'll hear anecdotal stuff and that'll sound cool and maybe I'll grab it hella cheap because for some reason Assassin's Creed games always seem to get a permanent price drop in Canada about a month after release.

ANYWAY, I AM HYPE FOR THE SETTING BUT NOT FOR THE GAME BECAUSE EH ASSASSIN'S CREED.

Setting is rad. I wasn't on board the "Watch_Dogs Downgrade" train, but this "alpha footage" reeks of bullshit.

Hope I'm wrong and the game looks this good on current gen systems (though no promises of the sort have even been made, so I won't be outraged if it doesn't), hell, it'd be nice to at least see it look this excellent on high end PCs (in spite of the fact I will never own one).

Show me the in-engine. No way will there be crowds like that.

Posted by Fear_the_Booboo

Man, I lived a year in Paris and am nostalgic about it. I'm gonna cry playing that game...

Still, nice setting.

Posted by Lausebub

This is real footage, but I doubt this is how the game is actually going to look and run like on consoles this fall. The French Revolution is a fantastic setting for a game, a lot of crazy shit went down. And yeah, a female protagonist for such a big release would be interesting(not counting Liberation here).

Posted by Rasmoss

WTF. I thought they'd just commited to numbering the games.

Anyway, graphically it looks fantastic, if that is indeed real-time. Finally actual crowds.

"Developed for current-gen systems"

I really have no idea what that means.

What a great setting for this game.

Yeah, because 99% of the people that buy assassin's creed totally know about the unity engine.

"Developed for current-gen systems,"

I don't know why, but this confused me for a second on what are current-gen systems... Durrr...

Posted by CornBREDX

Good setting. Means the parkour will be fun again.

Why is it called Unity? I thought it meant they were using the Unity engine, but the Unity engine isn't capable of looking that good.

I like how much people whine about how this isn't set where they want it to be set.

So, if it's during the french revolution does that mean this will be the first Assassin's Creed musical? =P

if thats what the actual game will look like (or if the final game will look close to that) then it looks fantastic.

That does not look like a female mouth/nose/chest.

Wonder what this will actually end up looking like after the patented Ubi visual bait & switch.

How would it create confusion? Relatively speaking, barely anyone knows what a game engine is, let alone that they can name one.

Most people don't know nearly that much about games to know the name of game engines.

Oh ANOTHER AC game set during a revolution... great. Just give me my Japanese set AC game already

Haha I'm sure the average layperson doesn't really know anything about engines aside from their names briefly appearing every time they start a game. And if a person is knowledgeable enough to know about engines (like most of us in this community), they'll easily be able to differentiate.
EDIT: Probably should've reloaded the page after walking away for a bit to see everyone else make the same point.

I'm tentatively excited about this installment. Black Flag was amazing but AC3 left a sour taste in my mouth. I'm hoping this franchise doesn't turn into a "better installment every other year" ala Call of Duty's of the past. But I've bought every other AC game in the past so that probably won't change with this release.

Another dude, huh?

Edited by Accolade

Meh teaser

Posted by JeanLuc

I've been asking for an Assassin's Creed game in the French Revolution since AC2 so I'm pretty excited. But at the same time I'll still cautious if this series can last. Black Flag was good but 3 hurt soo bad.

Edited by MachoFantastico

After many years they've finally caved in to setting a game in Paris. Feel like it's been forever since that rumor as been making the rounds, not that I'm complaining.

Looks great and after Black Flag I'm all in for more Assassin's Creed.

Posted by deltaalphabravo

When you say "current-gen systems". What exactly do you mean?

Posted by WolfHazard

So we got a trailer for Unity but not for Comet? :o

Well anyway, I don't know anything about the French Revolution so maybe it would be interesting, but damn I don't want them to leave pirates.

Edited by dezvous

@cale: I wouldn't be so sure.

Posted by yesac2004

Thought I was done with the series after having mixed feeling about Black Flag, but next-gen only and French Revolution? Count me in

Posted by Mikemcn

You start the game and within 5 minutes all the french templars surrender. The end.(Jokes)

Posted by DeiNile

Pachter was right! Never bet against Pachter.

Posted by cloudymusic

It looks gorgeous, but the whole Watch Dogs thing has made me pretty skeptical about these sorts of trailers. Hopefully it holds up to this promise.

But what about the Rick James song, "Unity"....oh my, I am just so confused...

Edited by RobertOrri

Time for another yearly installment of Assassin's Creed!

Posted by Rotnac

This setting is definitely bringing me back on board with AC. with what little is shown, it gave me the vibe of the concept Ubi had for first Assassins Creed which is pretty exciting. at least as far as being able to blend in a far more massive crowd.

Posted by Food

Awesome! I was hoping they'd do a French Revolution game. It always seemed like a perfect choice. You've got a ton of notorious characters, an iconic city, and a messy and convoluted series of events which continue to be relevant to modern politics!

Posted by Pop

I'm such a fucking idiot. When I read the rumors I was like "wait, why are they making Assassin's Creed in Unity?". Nobody put Assassin's Creed colon Unity.

Looks alright.

Posted by TooWalrus

PS4 and Xbox One. You know, current-gen.

Edited by LucidDreams117

Hmmmmmm. Well looks cool and all, but even after the positive talk about Black Flag, deep down it was still Assassins Creed. For better and for worse. I'm tired of the worse stuff. Hoping this game changes shit up.

Posted by LucidDreams117

Hmmm. Well, looks awesome and all, but even after the positive talk about Black Flag, it was still Assassins Creed for better and for worse. The worse is what I'm tired about. Here's hoping this changes shit up.

Posted by EricSmith

How are you guys confused by "current gen"? The current gen is the Xbox One and the PS4. Last gen is...the last gen. We're not gonna do this bullshit dance of calling it "next gen" for three or four years into the generation again.

Posted by RetroVirus

While I like this scenery change, I REALLY want Assassin's Creed: Feudal Japan.

So in.
