This month will see the release of not one but two Assassin’s Creed games. There is the last-gen only Assassin’s Creed: Rogue and the current-gen only Assassin’s Creed: Unity which is the one featured in this post. This latest trailer for the game has a comprehensive breakdown of all the key features that the title has in store for players.

The game is set in Paris during the French Revolution. The city is the largest ever seen in an Assassin’s Creed game with seven distinct districts. Many key buildings have been recreated in detail and are made to look more authentic thanks to the Anvil engine. The city itself is teeming with life and because of the new engine, can have as many as 5000 people on its streets.

Protagonist Arno will be highly customizable which will mean that no two Arnos will look the same. The combat system has been given an overhaul with a new set of moves and animations. The enemies have also been upgraded and are smarter than before. There is also a new cover system in place which is very similar to another Ubisoft game, Splinter Cell: Blacklist. You’ll be able to get in and out of cover more seamlessly now.

Co-op is also highlighted here. Players will be able to drop in and out of co-op at anytime. Though classes aren’t rigid, there are four roles for players to take on and each is distinct. A balanced group is essential for taking on these specific missions.

As is usual for the Assassin’s Creed series, there will be cameos from several key historical figures. King Louis XVI, Marquis de Sade, and Napoleon Bonaparte will all be prominently featured in the game. This game will also take some interesting liberties with time as Arno can jump into time anomalies and enter different timelines. This video shows him climbing the Eiffel Tower and shooting down German planes during World War II.

This is easily the most ambitious Assassin’s Creed game yet and should set a new standard for the series.

Assassin’s Creed: Unity will be available for the PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on November 11.
