The city of Paris for Assassins Creed: Unity will be the largest in all the series’ history and will be bigger than all the combined island masses of Assassins Creed IV. The rendition of the famous Notre Dame Cathedral within the game will be proportionally 1:1 with the real thing making it so that when you enter the building it should feel as big as it is in real life.
Along with the sheer map size, a quarter of the buildings within the game will have playable interiors, a huge increase from any of the previous games. Neighborhoods will feel more diverse and more distinct from region to region than fans have seen from previous Assassins Creed games.
The game can also support up to 5,000 non-playable characters on screen at one time.
Also showed is that the new co-op missions will be optional and are all story-based. These missions can also be played solo just in case fans do not wish to play with friends. But with the addition of the new co-op mode something has been taken away; multiplayer. Assassins Creed: Unity will be the first game since Brotherhood not to feature multiplayer as part of the game.
A modern section has also been added to the game that will star “you.” It’s not clear what exactly that means, and hopefully more details will be released soon.
Assassins Creed: Unity will be released on October 28th for the Xbox One, Playstation 4 and PC.
