Ubisoft offers a pair of new videos for Assassin’s Creed: Unity, the next installment of the 76 million unit-selling Assassin’s Creed franchise due to arrive in the US on November 11th, and in EMEA territories on November 13th. Assassin’s Creed: Unity invites you to experience Paris during the French Revolution, from the storming of the Bastille to the execution of King Louis XVI. You will play as Arno, an entirely new breed of Assassin far more lethal than his ancestors, and you will help the people of France carve an entirely new destiny.

The game is developed by Ubisoft Montreal with support from nine Ubisoft studios around the world: Ubisoft Montreal (lead), Ubisoft Toronto, Ubisoft Québec, Ubisoft Annecy, Ubisoft Montpellier, Ubisoft Bucharest, Ubisoft Kiev, Ubisoft Shanghai, Ubisoft Chengdu Ubisoft Singapore.

Ubisoft is pleased to announce the launch of a unique online experience, Project Widow, ahead of the launch of the videogame, Assassin’s Creed: Unity.

Offering a 360 degree street level view, the online interactive guided tour will immerse visitors in Assassin’s Creed: Unity and bring to life Paris in the late 18th century amidst the bloody heart of the French Revolution.

Visiting the sites of some of the French Revolution’s darkest moments, players will see Paris as it is now whilst experiencing Paris as it was then.

Participants will be able to explore the immersive virtual world Paris in their own time, discover hotspots rich in history, uncover hidden Assassin’s Creed: Unity art and videos, win prizes and exclusives and uncover the secrets of the assassins and revolution. Look closer in dark corners for competitions and exclusive bonus content.

A charismatic revolutionary, voiced by UK actor, Andy Serkis, is the guide and narrator. Offering a very extraordinary and personal tour of Paris, he describes the Revolution from his own gritty experience. Beware though, he may have his own veiled agenda.

Project Widow, which can be accessed here launches in the UK on Thursday 25th September. Project Widow refers to one of the most famous nicknames for the guillotine during 18th Century Paris and brings an intriguing and cryptic element to the online tour.

Also, the new Assassin’s Creed: Unity Experience Trailer #2 Customization & Co-op video has been released. View it here.

This video offers a look at a co-op mission in Assassin’s Creed Unity, accompanied by developer commentary from creative director Alex Amancio to help understand what we’re seeing. Word is:

“In heist missions you’ll have to coordinate your skills and attacks to infiltrate, steal the artifacts, and escape without being detected. The less you’re seen, the higher your reward for finishing the mission will be. Heists are just one type of co-op mission and with constantly changing goal placement as well as a variable number and location of guards you can replay heists again and again for a fresh experience every time.”

Ubisoft has announced that Assassin’s Creed Unity will be released on November 11 in the US and on November 13 in EMEA. The two extra weeks will help ensure that the quality of the game meets fans’ – and the team’s – lofty expectations. This news has no impact on the company’s full year financial targets, which Ubisoft also confirms today.

“As we got close to the finish, we realized we were near the target but still needed a bit more time to hone some of the details to make sure Assassin’s Creed Unity is exceptional,” says Vincent Pontbriand, senior producer at Ubisoft. “We sincerely appreciate players’ commitment to the game and their patience. It’s just a couple more weeks. And it’s going to be worth it.”

The US release date for Assassin’s Creed Rogue remains unchanged (November 11). In EMEA territories, Assassin’s Creed Rogue will now release November 13, alongside Assassin’s Creed Unity.

Ubisoft has unveiled the Paris Horizon Gamescom Trailer from Assassin’s Creed: Unity, the next installment of the 76 million unit-selling Assassin’s Creed franchise due to arrive worldwide on October 28, for PC, PS4, and Xbox One. The game invites you to experience Paris during the French Revolution, from the storming of the Bastille to the execution of King Louis XVI. You will play as Arno, an entirely new breed of Assassin far more lethal than his ancestors, and you will help the people of France carve an entirely new destiny.

Ubisoft has released a new CGI trailer for Assassin’s Creed: Unity that shows Arno racing against time and through a dense and chaotic central Paris in order to prevent the beheading of Elise, a character central to Assassin’s Creed: Unity’s story. As an independent young noblewoman, Elise is determined to secure her place in the Templar dynasty amidst the chaos of the French Revolution. Her quest leads her to cross paths with Arno and establish an unlikely bond with him.

In addition to the new trailer, Ubisoft is offering fans the chance to discover a novel by Oliver Bowden based on Assassin’s Creed: Unity. This new paperback from Penguin Random House builds on Bowden’s past Assassin’s novels – with 3 million copies sold to date – and examines an era when the divide between the rich and poor is at its most extreme, and a nation is tearing itself apart. Told from Elise’s perspective, the book follows her and Arno as they are drawn into the centuries-old battle between the Assassins and the Templars – a world with dangers more deadly than they could ever have imagined – and fight to avenge all they have lost.

Finally, fans can now also order “Elise: The Fiery Templar,” a high quality figurine designed by Ubicollectibles that features Elise as she sets her sights on her target with her gun poised and sword sheathed at the ready on her back. This collectible can be assembled into a diorama with the “Arno: The Fearless Assassin” figurine. Additional digital content for Assassin’s Creed: Unity also is included with the purchase of this collectible.

Assassin’s Creed: Unity will be released worldwide on October 28. The novel Assassin’s: Creed Unity will be available in November. “Elise: The Fiery Templar” figurine will be released on October 14.

This video demonstrates even Ubisoft’s “chief parkour officer” cannot navigate walls as shown in Assassin’s Creed games, though it does show the way the acrobatics in Assassin’s Creed Unity will be modeled on real-life action. Word is:

“Meet Michael ‘Frosti’ Zernow, Ubisoft’s first Chief Parkour Officer. Starting with Assassin’s Creed Unity, Zernow will serve as an adviser to the franchise, helping the developers ensure the parkour mechanics are as authentic and accurate as possible. In addition to assisting with game accuracy, Zernow and his team of coaches at Tempest Freerunning have helped us design a special parkour course for San Diego Comic Con. Meet Zernow and get your first look at the Assassin’s Creed Experience in the video below.”

Who is really leading the French Revolution?

A critical moment in the French Revolution sets the scene for Assassin’s Creed Unity in this new trailer from Ubisoft.

“Paris, 1789. Commoners starved in the streets while aristocrats squandered the wealth of the nation,” reads the video description.

“Desperate and angry, they united and revolted against the power at hand and started the Revolution… But did the people truly lead the fight? Or did obscur forces use this time of chaos to spread their power?”

Assassin’s Creed Unity is set in 18th century Paris, during the French revolution, with players cast as French-Austrian assassin Arno Victor Dorian.

Ubisoft has said the game features its “biggest playground ever”, which has been “filled with hundreds of quests, activities and rewards”.

This is the second AC Unity trailer released today – an earlier video discussed the oppression of the people at the hands of “an arrogant and decadent aristocracy”.

The Assassin’s Creed Unity release date is set for October 28 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

As obvious as it seems to say, the French Revolution was a particularly violent passage of time.

By Nick Cowen @ CVG

Crack open a history book and you’ll see that the streets of Paris ran red from about 1789 for the next ten years. Heads rolled, blood sprayed and the noggins of popinjays were pinned up on spikes.

(My mum is something of an authority on this. In the few instances I’ve been in Paris with her she’s imparted the bodycount stats outside nearly every landmark in the city of love. True story.)

The Assassin’s Creed franchise has never shied away from bloodletting – hey, the clue is in the title – but Revolutionary France is a particularly bold step even for this series. Not only does it put the action firmly on Ubisoft’s home turf, it explores wounds in a piece of French history that still resonate to this day.
