First gameplay images leaked for one of the two games (according to Kotaku) set to release this fall. Set in 18th century Paris it was codenamed Unity (as that Neogaf leak suggested). Unity is the next gen game (Ps4, X1).


Sushi note 1: Look at the puppeteer controls. More interactive Parkour confirmed :D!!!!
Sushi note 2: Where the heck are all the people lol?



Potentially the official announcement is tomorrow (could be something else though, don't shoot me :) ): https://www.facebook.com/Uplay.Ubisoft (thanks to MasterAssasin84 and Silvermercy)

Btw, anyone notice the parkuour up/down button? Could it be? Could parkour finally have become more than just an uninvolving button press?

Didn't you read the Sushi notes :mad:! I def think they have changed the parkour to give more precision. It's likely that you now need to hold RT+A to climb I would say.

Ze light from ze hype. Why art thou so blinding?

Yeah, where the hell are the damn people? It's paghis. We want density and we want it now. Looking at the screenshot with fountaion, I can see some red and blue textures. This is possibly some pretty early stuff. As long as NPCs don't walk in weird groups of 4, I'm in.

Exactly, the crowds should be so dense that you can't even squeeze a crÍpe in there! Good observation about the fountain pic. I was thinking it was some form of cloth, but I think you are right that it is some form of development tool. So yeah real early footage.

For those of you worried by the fact that graphically it seems lackluster in some parts, rest assured that this was confirmed to be from an extremely early crossgen build, and that more recent builds feature significantly upgraded textures, and higher density NPC traffic. However just from these screens we can see that draw distance has increased tenfold

Good Fake, I got to give him that.
But I only believe it when it's confirmed.

Something is seriously wrong with leaks this year, all those fake leaks prove it.

Like I said, I believe it once it's confirmed. The health bar and the weapon selector are still a little bit too weird IMO and a puppeteer control HUD is easily included in such an image.

Yeah, even though I want something even more interactive having clear up/down control is perfectly fine and should help a lot in tight spaces when you want to turn around corners etc.

Farlander1991
03-19-2014, 06:44 PM
Guys, if you look at the second screen, you can see a white box instead of one of the buildings.

This is a left-over from what is known as 'white boxing', i.e. when you literally set up the basics of environments by placing basic textureless geometry around the place.

No fake can be this sophisticated to include leftovers from white-boxing ;) Definitely an early build.

Will_Lucky
03-19-2014, 06:46 PM
No chance this is a next gen , this is PS3/X360 version , somne early phase of development , come on even AC3 and AC4 looks much better from these images.

This is early, very early judging by the interface as well. Initially in game development they need to get the systems running before they can start adding eye-candy and this will be no different.

03-19-2014, 06:46 PM
UGH. GOD DANG IT.

I just... I JUST want an Asian AC. The only possible saving grace is the dense urban locale for the game being set in Paris and even then... ehhh. They'll have to do quite a good job of convincing me it's worth a buy. I hate to be a wet blanket, but I'm just burned out from European-based games set in the 1700s or later. It's lame when you have all of history to explore. I would've loved a Chinese AC or even an AC set in the early AD years. Possibly BC even, depending on if they found a really cool location.

We'll see but if this turns out to be real and NOT an amazing fake, I've already 85% written this game off. Perhaps thats ignorant of me but I know what I want out of AC. Like I said, the urban setting could entice me since it's been a few years now since we've had a decent urban AC. Constantinople was the last true AC city IMO. AC3 had lame cities, AC4 only had Havana which was fairly small and underutilized.

Maybe if the city is utilized really well, if random events are expanded upon and made to be more like Red Dead Redemption, and they can convince me that the time period is good. Then maybe the game will be good and I'll get it. I know me saying "no buy" is not really anything Ubi should be scared of because a single person not buying the game won't make or break it for them but still. Just expressing my opinion about the choice of location.

Edit:
Actually, this picture
http://i.kinja-img.com/gawker-media/image/upload/t_ku-xlarge2/tiqke0prxcukw3r7v3if.png

1. Parkour is really getting overhauled..maybe even dedicated stealth button.

Final build of this character "Arno" is likely a lot different lol

2. Generally agreed, AC3 and 4 was too easy on the combat front even turning the UI off posed little challenge.

Probaby wait until after GDC at least. Controlled leak would make a lot of sense actually as they can just release a couple of rough pics and we go nuts. Pretty cheap marketing.

Not my opinion necessarily. I think Paris would make for a nice setting, though I would have preferred England (I just don't like the French language, but on the other hand - I like the French Rev. as historical era). A big city with some small outdoor stuff, hopefully more than 1 city btw. I do really not want ONLY Paris to be in this. 2 cities and a countryside (AC2 style) would be cool IMO (provided the countryside is more interesting than in AC2/AC3.

I also hope they overhauled the combat (or rather, improved it (made it more difficult)) and have improved on stealth (please crouch button (maybe even cover system?), please), improved on the A.I. (smarter than AC4, not as hyper-sensitive as AC3, investigation phase) and stealth possibilities (lure people, kill/k.o around corners and over obstacles behind which you can hide, etc.), as well as improved on social stealth and added more tools to distract, K.O. (very important for me personally, non lethal) and kill.

Also, I hope the density of people on the streets is more than in Colonial America. First because it would be really lame for the social stealth if not, and second because there really WERE more people in French cities than in Colonial America cities.


So the airplane leak was legit. For the second time.

Ubi need to set up security measures for business travels lol.

IF the airplane story really holds up (and is not just a story to sound more spectacular and funny than it actually was when the poster got to know that information) then I am 100% this is no coincidence. 2 things like this happening 2 years in a row? That practically screams "controlled leak".

Well, since we see no muskets and the streets and people look pretty 18th century for me..... French Rev or something around that.
Would fit. Lots of interesting characters.

It's not Napoleon, that's for sure.

French Revolution

But is there any proof? Originally it hinted at Victorian Era, now its back to French Revolution. Its just odd in general unless of course the guns have been carried over as a placeholder from AC4.

Just wait and see how it turns out.

Once we see first gameplay and hear about the story we will be able to judge better. Also, if and when I buy this game will depend on both Modern Day AND the exact setting and story..


We need to find something in the pics to freak out about. Was expecting at least someone to go berserk over the color of the hood, but so far nothing lol.

Because to be honest, there is nothing special about it.

A French/English setting will have a lot of similarities with Colonial America (like you can see from the pics), the protagonist looks like a mix of Edward and Connor in French clothes (btw. he looks indeed like that painting that was leaked a while ago) and the time period could be another Revolution :D With which we are also familiar. (Though it excites me that this time they could actually get the story and atmosphere right or rather better than AC3 in terms of revolution (you know what I'm talking about, weaknesses like Paul Reveres ride, or that the Boston Teaparty was a little bit "lame" (only MO) and that Connor was so shoehorned into every event as MAIN influence, etc... )

I just think we have been with the series for so long, it is like Bob said, an Asian or African, or Arabian setting (I know AC1 was in that area, but AC1 was pretty linear and didn't have much to do since it was the first of the series, plus it didn't have those graphics) might have really surprised and excited us, but a European Industrial setting is kind of what we are used to, and therefore nothing you would now TOTALLY flip. Now if the leak would actually contain proof for a better combat or stealth system or had something the series hasn't see before, then people might have been excited. But so far we only saw a few pics, we don't know more.

If all the rumors are true, then we get two cities, London and paris, we get Connor in some way, likely a cameo for a few missions..maybe like haytham was in AC3.

And for the last time..this was likely one of the first builds lol. Not only have they not begun to add details to the city in the pics..the city likely wasn't even complete in regard to amount of buildings. Seems pretty empty, and they wherein white boxing stage.

Yeah, if it's the same assassin as on the wall at Ubisoft, which it most likely is, then he looks different on the picture on the wall than on these images, so it's likely his outfit has changed and likely many other things will be much much more detailed, especially if it's a current-gen only title

looks like victorian era judging by the way npc dressed, architecture, horse carriages parked on the streets.

codename is AC:unity. Not final title, might be battle/fight something (cant remember). The AC logo is cut in the middle like the beyond/quantum break logo."

Slightly true ? I am French, I'd know.

And it would be random and wouldn't add anything to the context. The revolution was not about slavery.

I suppose that what you say is slightly true, but I wouldn't say that because of it reduces any chance of the protagonist being black.

Actually it is plausible that black people were living in France during the 18th century, they could've originated from North Africa. I also kinda agree with killzab because there weren't a lot black people living in Paris at that time.

THIS. But there is a chance that Ubisoft leaked some of it for giggles anyways. I mean, AC3 and AC4 leaked around the same time. We were quite spoiled with AC4's leaks because of the pre order poster from GameStop, map of the Caribbean, and even a CGI trailer. Regardless, people are always quick to judge from an early build of the game. There is still a while until its release.

Victorian Era doesn't always correlate with England. Its a generic term for 1837-1901.

I'm still unsure, its obvious the screenshots are from a very early test. We don't know when it takes place, the Ubi Stair model is holding a Revolver but the screenshot has two pistols that look like they're from AC4. Its too hard to tell without confirmation because the screenshots are from so early in development.

Now THIS is the kind of architecture I've sorely missed since the release of the earlier games, Havana's cathedral came close, but this is on another level. Scaling this bad boy is going to be quite the experience. (That is, if those screens are indeed legit, which they certainly appear to be).

Really early build. As Farlander pointed out: Look at the second pic, above the fountain. There is a white box as a placeholder for a building (also note the red and blue areas). So these pics say very little about the final quality.
