AS­SAS­SIN’S CREED: UNITY

EDGE - - HYPE - Pub­lisher/de­vel­oper Ubisoft For­mats PC, PS4, Xbox One Re­lease 2014

Fan sur­veys have long made it known Ubisoft was con­sid­er­ing tak­ing As­sas­sin’s Creed to 19th-century France, and Unity, an­nounced with strik­ing al­pha footage af­ter some un­flat­ter­ing leaked screen­shots rather un­der­sold it, is proof of that lon­gru­moured en­deav­our. French Revo­lu­tion-era Paris is a no-brainer for a se­ries at its best when work­ing in his­tory’s moral grey ar­eas, while Notre Dame and its ilk will re­fo­cus the se­ries on the ver­ti­cal af­ter ACIII and Black Flag’s flat­tened sprawl. With no PS3 or 360 ver­sions planned, here’s hop­ing all those eaves­drop­ping mis­sions have been lost in the gen­er­a­tional tran­si­tion.
