This week Ubisoft shared an eight minute long video at San Diego Comic-Con showing off gameplay footage of their latest title, Assassins' Creed Unity. Whilst the footage hasn't been professionally released to the public, a (rather shaky) recording of the eight minute live demo has been making rounds on the web, and despite it's rather poor quality, the game is looking pretty good.
Assassins' Creed Unity is said to take the previous games in the franchise and improve upon the core experience those games have offered by making the gameplay experience feel more streamlined and open. For example, in Assassin's Creed Unity, in some instances failing a mission will not force the player to restart, and will instead force them to find another way to amend the mistakes they made before going for the main objective that players tried to accomplish in the first mission.
Assassins' Creed Unity will also have a large focus on online co-operative content, which will be separated from the singleplayer gameplay. As expected, thanks to the new hardware in the PS4 and the Xbox One, Unity is expected to look a whole lot nicer, and pretty much every element from background details to combat animations will have an overhaul.
Assassins' Creed Unity is set for release this year on October 28th, and will be available on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and the PC. Last gen consoles, such as the Xbox 360 and PS3, will not receive a version of AC: Unity.
