Assassin's Creed Unity will take place during the French Revolution, which returns the world of Assassin's Creed to the bustling cities of Europe. The following is gameplay footage in it's “Alpha Stage”. If that's true, the game looks really freaking gorgeous, even at this very early stage. Which means it can only get better, right?
But I've been fooled by “this is actual in game footage” before, and been sorely disappointed. We'll see if Assassin's Creed Unity can live up to this sneak peak. It will be on a next gen consoles, so maybe it can deliver.
Assassin's Creed Unity will be available during the 2014 Holiday.
