Assassin's Creed Unity - Do You Hear the People Sing? - Update

ok, now thats a setting i like. too bad you had to put autoplaying videos with volume here.

It's Louis XVI, not Louis XIII. Louis XIII was the one with Richelieu, Louis XVI was the one who lost his head.

The reason Fortier-Auclair may not have heard anyone make the Les Mis reference is because people who actually paid any attention to the movie/book/play know that the big finale of Les Mis takes place 40 years after the French Revolution(the new movie even outright spells it out in the opening scene).

That being said, I'm actually really looking forward to this one. Seriously, they don't even have to make much up for this, just go with actual history.

huh....

mabye I can not bother with blag flag or AC3 at all and go with this one...

I'd go with Black Flag. Its not just Assassins Creed, its Sid Miers PIRATES! 2.

OT: Hmmm. I never expected the Assassins to support mob justice like they did.

yeeeah I know...this might sound odd but I'd rather eather play an assasins creed game or a pirate game...not one that can't decide which is which....

Quite right!

Black Flag is tremendous fun!

Agreed, come on I'm trying to read this at work!

Overall, liking the look of this one, wish they'd had a chance to show some of the side stuff during the press conference, they could have just dropped the embarrassment that was the Let's Dance! presentation and showed more Creed!

CAPTCHA: exercise more, how dare you good sir, I am insulted!

I had mixed feelings over this one while watching the E3 gameplay. I'm definitely not getting this one since I don't have an XBOX, but then there's the fact that we're supposed to root for a group of people supporting the slaughter of nobles, both wicked and innocent. There's a reason they call the period after the revolution the 'reign of terror'.
Unless at some point the new tyrannical revolutionary government actually turns out to be a Templar job, and the Assassins switch sides against the former revolutionaries.

Wrong revolution. What you're thinking is a few years after this.

It's pretty easy to play Black Flag as a pirate game, most of the story had barely anything to do with the Assassins VS Templars, and you're free to bum around on the high seas, pirating and singing sea shanties. You want a hardcore expierence? You can turn off all the UI! I'd almost say Black Flag actually did start life as a pure pirate game, then had AC slapped on it later, it's such a departure from the rest of the games.

Besides, as much as I too would like a pure pirate game, there's not much choice in that department for modern games...er Risen 2? *shudder*

The setting seems like it could be a lot of fun, but was anyone else slightly alarmed by that gameplay video embedded in the article? I don't know how early a stage in development the game is in, but god damn every guard you saw in the video seemed catastrophically unobservant and slow to react...

Thanks! I blame my hastily written notes. I'll fix that!

I KNOW! Trust me, I'm a huge Les Mis fan. But I've also seen lots of people on social media make AC: Les Mis jokes. Maybe it's just my particularly nerdy social circle.

*cough cough* sausage fest *cough cough*

Really bummed that you can't be a female assassin. When me and my friends had heard the rumor it would be a four-player co-op and in France, we all got excited with the idea of playing four ladies in big fancy dresses with big wigs, walking down the streets of France and quietly shanking people as we pass.

So when are we going to get info on AC Comet? Far more interested in that one as it has sea battles like AC4.

Finally finally finally! A flipping crouch option! That used to drive me mad.

This actually looks great. At least they're looking at using the new consoles power for other things than the "more shiny" we've seen so far. Massive crowds is something that would really improve things. So many games have you "storm the keep with your army" which consists of about 20 npcs so this is great.

The other thing I noticed was the guard stopping to admire a passing woman. I really hope that wasn't scripted. The narrator talks about randomised guards and that sounds fucking cool. Assuming they mean random movements that would reflect a more realistic guard. That'd really add a new layer to gameplay.

Of course this is Ubisoft so the actual game may bear no resemblance, but I can hope. I hope the 4-player co-op isn't mandatory.

Aww... They're finally adding in features I've wanted the whole time. Like crouching, and more realistic guards. I don't care about co-op, but as long as it's not mandatory, it's a nice feature for those get into that.

Only problem - next-gen only. Still not enough to get me to buy a new console. Maybe I'll consider the PC version...

Some time often passes during an AssCreed game, though, right? Are we going to see some Napolean in this? Maybe it will get to the July Revolution or whatever. Maybe DLC will cover it.

Do I hear them sing? Non, non, the only sounds I hear are the wails, and gnashing of teeth!!

I swear, I don't understand Ubisoft. One moment, I love them for 2 versions of AC liberation (Vita, then PS3 port), and Child of light, then they come around pulling the "Ohnoes! Female playable characters would be way too much work!!!" despite being a frikking huge company.
Here I thought I could respect them. Like the company more than I do, but nope. I dunno what to think anymore.

The game's off my radar. I want something a weee bit more creative in a protagonist than standard issue white guy. Would've been all over this game if they kept the gender select in.

That's why this one might be the most interesting story wise. Someone ages ago said that setting a game in the French Revolution would be really good as it could be the "what if the Assassin's went too far" scenario. The first half of the game could very well be that, and then the second half showing the main character try to fix all they did.

If they actually do that is another story...

Yeah I'll second this, doing that was super fun in AC3:Liberation.
But, hey, girls don't buy videogames, right?

So wait.. I'm a bit confused... Maybe its because it's 3AM but can someone answer me.

Is this going to be one of the big assassins creed games.. Like Brotherhood/revelation. Something with a substantial story and a non-blank slate character (4 Player Co-OP has me skeptical).

Is this going to harm the singleplayer experience (Like Deadspace sequels)?

As stated in other threads:
For the Co-op, it's not four different guys, it's the same guy, Arno, customized four different ways. When you play co-op, everyone appears as Arno to themselves, and as a nameless assassin to the other players. And also, it would be quite a lot of money, and several months delay past uncomfortable to change the whole game so that co-op has character select with a female option.

Anyway, looks amazing, and I totally want it, but I'm gonna have to pick up a new console. Revelations nearly made my computer explode, this would leave a crater where my room once was.
