Product description of Assassin's Creed Unity
Having addressed the American Revolution in Assassin's Creed III, Ubisoft's popular open-world stealth action series turns its eyes toward France's uprising in Assassin's Creed: Unity. Players take control of Arno Dorian, a young man born to an Assassin father but adopted by a Templar family, and guide him through the streets, sewers, and catacombs of Paris as he seeks to expose the real forces behind the impending French Revolution. Unity features substantial updates to the franchise's combat, parkour, and stealth systems, and it includes a brand-new co-op multiplayer mode.
The Paris of Unity is rendered in greater detail than any city in the history of the franchise, with a true 1:1 scale, seamless building interiors, and AI crowds that can number in the thousands. Gamers use the updated parkour system to navigate this bustling metropolis, with new options to dash over, under, or around objects, and leaps into conveniently placed haystacks largely removed in favor of new controlled descents. Arno can blend in with crowds to remain anonymous, but the new crouch mechanic and the ability to take cover behind any object means players have more ways to stay hidden than ever before. If discovered, gamers can take advantage of a new combat system and employ a series of attacks, dodges, and parries to dispatch their foes.
Assassin's Creed: Unity features a customization system that lets players tailor Arno to their preferred play styles, with more than 200 items and accessories designed to improve stealth, increase defense, and upgrade attack power. The new co-op multiplayer mode exists alongside the single-player story and finds two-to-four gamers joining forces to pull heists, prevent executions, assassinate Templars, and take on a variety of other dynamic missions specifically designed to require the participation of a diversely skilled set of Assassins.
