View Full Version : Assassins Creed Unity's Phantom Blade was inspired by a real weapon

Hey everyone,

So myself and some friends went to Rome a few weeks ago, mainly because of Assassins Creed Brotherhood and visited the sites seen in the game.
Which I highly recommended going, but be careful, you cant go to any synchronise points as you get told to climb down, also there are no hay bales to jump into anyway.

Anyway one of the places we went was Castel Sant Angelo (As shown below, its were you parachute off in game)

In this castle there is a bit where you see old soldier uniforms and weapons. When we saw the weapons, I was a bit surprised by a particular weapon.
Now its not exactly like the phantom blade of course but damn its pretty close. Just needs to be a little smaller and a hidden blade rather than a dagger.
But me and my friend wondered when Ubisoft was scouting this location for Brotherhood they saw this, and they saw this and thought it would be a good idea for a hidden blade and thats why we have it in AC:Unity

Also while being in Rome we wondered if we would spot any Assassins Creed related items.
There was a couple of stores that sold a few Assassin Creed items. But we found a gem in one of the stores, a t-shirt but with a slight issue. (Can you spot it?)
