I realize this isn't an actual gameplay trailer, but I imagine that the large crowd will be something that they are able to do on next gen consoles. I don't know if anybody else played Dead Rising 3, but the amount of zombies that were on screen that you could kill was awesome. I'm just picturing what they could with the crowds in this game now.

*P.S. first post but I've been around reading this forum since AC1. :)

It seriously look so good. That's ingame footage, right? I can't wait for it all to change and look totally different but I'm so excited right now that I don't even care!

Can't wait for a press properly introducing Arnaldo. And I like his robes, so fancy and assassiny.

I'm also curious about the tittle and if Ubi will drop the numbers from now on.

GreySkellig

Argh...I'm so torn now knowing this is real. On the one hand...French Revolution, not my ideal setting. Feels like more of the same 18th century European stuff/riding the Les Mis wave. I mean, yes there's going to be some big buildings, but the city streets themselves look a LOT like AC3, just a little more disheveled.

On the other hand, since this is now confirmed as the current-gen title, I think Paris is a great opportunity to take the series to a new height of gameplay and immersion. The higher tech specs could give us denser crowds, building interiors, smarter AI detection, larger cities (Paris has the biggest urban sprawl of any European city) and my personal dream--no load screens, something I really think they could have done on AC4's current-gen version instead of just updating the smoke, foliage and draw distance.

All in all, mixed feelings. I always wind up loving the settings, but I'm really starting to get fatigued of "Europeans with guns fight other Europeans with guns over Enlightenment-era ideology". Add to that the Francophile frenzy of Les Mis, and I'm wondering if this game might not just feel thematically stale. Still, excited for a new generation of AC in a giant city.

Sidebar: I definitely do not buy this as game footage, unless Ubisoft has taken a major left turn in AC's art style. This looks in line with CG trailers for previous games.

03-21-2014, 04:53 PM
I hate that Ubi does that, november is too close for me not to expect it, but too far for me to handle. I don't even know how I am going to go back to work now, all I wanna do is watch this useless footage who might not even represent the game at all.

It's so weird, I'm craving for the next games even though we just for 3 in the last months (BF, FC and LHD)

Agreed, though one has to mention that the Order seems pretty linear, which means AC has to cater for a real open world while the Order doesn't have to. Anyway, I wouldn't mind A SMALL downgrade. But seriously, have you seen the recent Watch Dogs trailer? Everyone was like "graphics are shiet" and the newest trailer showing the PS-exclusive outfit is just as pretty as the old trailers were. I think a downgrade is not necessary. Does of course depend on the question for which console this is being made. My guess is next gen only. So I DEFINITELY have to upgrade my PC before that, PROVIDED (and that is an absolute must have for me) the gameplay footage proves that Stealth has gotten better (at LEAST AC4 niveau/level, preferably improved on that).

I would be surprised if Ubi achieves even close to this pre-viz. Not necessarily because I think it's not possible, but because Paris is a far, far, far bigger city than they have ever tackled, and I think a lot of effort and processing power has to go into making it enormous and detailed. I'll be very disappointed if Ubi trades scale for some eye candy.

It says right at the start that it's alpha game footage. It looks to be about the same quality as the original Watch_Dogs trailer from E3 2012.

I know full well that there's no way the game will look THIS damn good in action, but as it's next-gen only unlike Watch_Dogs, I doubt it'll be downgraded as much as W_D has been.

I was thinking the same thing actually.

The Order: 1886 is not as massive as an AC Open World game so it has an excuse to be so detailed.

Still, knowing that the new current gen consoles can't handle that level of detail is somewhat of a disappointment.


And I'm getting a PC soon this year. Gonna wait until DirectX 12 is release Holiday 2015 before I get a better graphics card.

I can clearly see that as being ingame footage. It's probably just for the trailer and the final game may be completly different, but it looks like it was taken from the engine. Plus, Shade said just a few days ago that Ubi likes to show what the game can do even though it doesn't mean it will do that lol.

Watch Dogs hasn't been downgraded. The only thing holding WD back is the resolution of XboxOne and PS4. Look at their new trailer for the PS-exclusive outfit and tell me this looks downgraded to you:

It's Pre-Viz. It's within the game engine, but it is a also prepped for show... it's the GOAL. It's what they hope to attain. This is the concept work that they produce as a milestone to say --- "this is where we are going, this is our vision for the game." It's to show what they can do with textures, lighting, shadow, smoke, etc. The real game won't look that good, but it's not CGI either.

Nice little Abstergo joke. Anyway, they showed something and I quite like what I see. I don'T mind if they release it later than usual (December, January?), Brotherhood was pretty late for PC for example, I didn't mind. As long as the Stealth and Running is improved and we get some nice new stuff in terms of gameplay and an interesting story I'm in.

Snowdrop is crazy impressive, as is the new PS4/PS3 Watch_Dogs trailer, but I wouldn't say either is quite this good. Plus it looks rather different in art direction from all previous AC games. I still think Unity is going to look amazing. Just maybe not this amazing. And I'm totally okay with that. I definitely prioritize the quality of the open world, gameplay, and mission design over how shiny the game looks. Paris should be a fun place as long as it's sufficiently vast and detailed.

Yeah :D

But we know developers ALWAYS polish the material to let it "look better" and then later on - when releasing more gameplay footage close to release - they normally "normalize" it a little bit in the hopes no one realizes it in the hype. At least that's the impression I personally get often regrading reveal trailers and later gameplay footage of all kinds of different games.

TorQue1988
03-21-2014, 05:17 PM
So if Watch Dogs (a cross-platform game) will have a campaign of 35-40 hours (and 100h to complete everything, according to Ubisoft) then AC Unity should at least have the same scope right? Both games are open-world after all, so a next-gen only game should easily reach and surpass the same scope.

Yeah, it's standard procedure, really. AC4 was the same way, the E3 demo looked a bit crisper and cleaner than the final build. The W_D story trailer was the one that raised some eyebrows though, because it did look significantly worse than precious footage (perhaps it was partially last-gen footage?). Fortunately the PS exclusive trailer put some of those fears to rest.

I'm also curious about the tittle and if Ubi will drop the numbers from now on.

I don't think they will drop them completely(yet anyway eventually the roman numerals will just get ridiculous past a certain number) I feel they only add a number with a New period or theme and since this game falls in with the same time period and theme as AC3 (Late 1700s and Revolution) thus why we have no numbered title. Maybe if there are 2 games this year one will be AC5 and that one will feature a different period/theme, and it would make most sense for a numbered installment to be cross-gen to guarantee all fans access but that's just my guess.

New 100 page thread incoming, I love it :D! I hope the interior shot in the beginning means we will be able to enter some of the most famous buildings, that would be so sweet.

I also looooooooove how small the assassin looks comparing to the buildings. That sense of scale has been sorely missed.

Agreed and agreed. Interiors have been a long time coming, and I definitely have missed the feeling of staring up at Il Duomo or the Hagia Sophia. Paris is big, and I am excited.

The footage is very reminiscent of the first Assassin's Creed trailer (http://youtu.be/cc-ClutaN_I), with the assassin standing above a crowd watching an execution.

Notre Dame looks incredible.

I don't like the robes either, though I suppose they are suited to the historical context. Still, it's sad to see the tradition of white robes go, and the leather shoulder pads and gloves are fairly ugly. Also, isn't it about time they gave the sword a sheath?

Yes it's pretty clear in the trailer.

I didn't take them, credit goes to gaf. And they are impressive indeed, in all honesty though I don't think the final game will look anywhere near as good, cautiously optimistic however.

Also, can we discuss architecture? The style of the buildings is reminiscent of Boston and NY from AC3 (excluding the beastly Notre-dame), I assume Reims is the not as big as other parts of Paris?

Well, since Ubi can't seem to make African skin tones that aren't weirdly shiny-looking (see Adewale...that man looks like he's always sweating), I'm going with caucasian. Yayyyyy...another white European with a gun. So the same as...almost every other Ac protagonist.

As to the hidden blades...this is alpha footage, and the hidden blades are kind of a cosmetic detail when not actually being used to stab people. I remember people freaked out when early screens of Edward didn't obviously show them. They'll be there in the finished game.

And leather was more of a workingman's thing to wear in the 1700s a wealthy man wouldn't have any of these, so I think he is a commoner

Why does it matter if he's black white Asian or purple? In my opinion as long as we get a good story in an awesome historical setting I'm fine with any protagonist be they male female, Asian, black, white, arab, what have you. As long as they keep the historic settings good I don't care, and the persons ethnicity should suit the locale, culture, and period. When we get a setting in an area with other cultures I'm sure we will see an assassin of that race and that is perfectly fine with me. So who cares what race this guy is?

So none going to talk about the use of audio? Like how the sound of crowds builds up, first being near silent from within the building, then growing in intensity as the camera shifts to the main streets, closer to the guillotine, the church bells slowly cutting into the crowd noises and giving a somber tone in contrast to the rough excited sounds of the crowd, the bells getting louder up till the execution and tolling just before it, the faint sounds of a rope being cut, and the swift, loud sound of the guillotine coming down at the end. The sound design is as good as the older Thief games. I hope the sound design in this game is just as good.

That trailer let off some serious AC 1 vibes (atmosphere) and AC 2 vibes (building), now that would make an awesome game.

I really think Ubisoft will have real random events in the city this time around. Maybe even designed a dynamic assassination contract system as well. I always like the assassination contracts, just feel like they could be more dynamic and with the power of ps4 and xbox 1, ubisoft could pull it off.

Honestly there are some may possibilities with the power of next-gen and AC, I'm just anxious to see how ubisoft utilizes the next-gen console for Unity.

Seems like Black Flag was just a minor entry inbetween III and Unity which are much more ambitious.

I would say that is incorrect. Having better graphics does not mean that the game is more ambitious. It just means that the platforms it's gonna be on have more raw power. This time around Ubi is making 2 AC games - one for old gen and one for current gen, hence the budget of those two games is not going to be the same as if they were doing only one game. They've probably split their resources. PS4 and XBOX One have smaller install bases and investing a crap load of money into this game is not a smart move. Yes the graphics are awesome, yes it'll probably have a big world, but the really ambitious games will come later in the generation when there is a bigger install base. I've stated that in the previous topic. btw Black Flag was certainly not a minor entry. It might have had lower development and marketing budget than AC3 but it was still much bigger than all the previous AC games. Although I would say they have probably cut only the marking budget of AC4, cause the actual game was just so excellent, it surely had high production cost. It's too bad it sold much less than AC3 - 8.1 vs 6.3 million units in the first 10 weeks.

That trailer let off some serious AC 1 vibes (atmosphere) and AC 2 vibes (building), now that would make an awesome game.

I really think Ubisoft will have real random events in the city this time around. Maybe even designed a dynamic assassination contract system as well. I always like the assassination contracts, just feel like they could be more dynamic and with the power of ps4 and xbox 1, ubisoft could pull it off.

Honestly there are some may possibilities with the power of next-gen and AC, I'm just anxious to see how ubisoft utilizes the next-gen console for Unity.

Interviews should start rolling out next week..can't wait.Thought the buildings were more AC3 tbh, defs got AC1 vibes but the landscape seemed very AC3 IMO.

So is this in-engine footage like AC3's reveal trailer in the sense that it isn't the actual product, or ACTUAL ALPHA footage of what's going to happen in game?

The atmosphere in the game though. This will help recall some pretty sombre AC1 atmosphere. I'm loving it. And French Architecture. They have the elements to make one hell of an AC map. Hope they get it right!

I won't have a ps4 until 2016 :( I'll pray everyday that I can play it on minimum res on my laptop.

I think Ubisoft held back with AC black flag because they had to worry about making black flag for next-gen and last-gen, with Unity, it's completely on next-gen, so Ubisoft will try to go all out with this title.

One word of caution: Ubisoft make Unity as good as you can, but don't be too overly ambitious on next-gen, just refine what is good about AC and don't make too many new systems, as I think everyone would rather a AC game with a few new awesome systems than an AC with alot of "ok" systems.

Apart from Notre-Dame which eclipses anything we've seen in Boston and New York, the regular buildings look dull, boring and very AC3-like, they also looked like that in the leaked screenshots which leads me to believe most of the city will follow a similar style. There's no doubt in my mind that the monuments will look very impressive, but I hope I'm wrong about the normal buildings.

Yeah, after looking at the trailer for the 2nd time, the normal buildings do look AC3-ish. As long as Ubisoft makes the city dense and it should be really fun to free-run in, and interconnections between buildings like AC 2. For the love of God PLEASE don't bring back those annoying roof guards from AC 3.

Well at least it's not Victorian era. Definitely French Revolution with that guillotine.

But it definitely gave off AC1 vibes. The monuments look great. Couldn't tell if the other buildings would be AC2-fun or not. GOTTA see gameplay. Really disappointed that the game is not set in an Asian setting. Or heck, anything other than Europe. But oh well. Probably the most disappointing is that it's Europe AND the SAME time period as the last 2 games: 1700s. I'm sick of that era. AC3, ACL, AC4, and now AC5 will all be 1700s. I want a New. Time.

In terms of style and architecture. As I've previously said, the monuments look incredible - arguably the best in the series, but the buildings scream AC3 (what we've seen of them anyway), the colours, the rooftops, the overall style. I am fully aware that we've only caught a brief glimpse of them, but that's the impression I'm getting, and others have observed this too.

Awesome :D

Does anyone remember this announcement trailer for AC3?

Back then they claimed it wasn't CGI but that it was anvil next footage and that it came really close to the actual in-game graphics...and as we all know, it didn't come anywhere near.
It's probably the same kind of thing with this trailer.

I would be really amazed if it is an actual representation of the graphics.
If you pause the AC:Unity trailer at 0:52 it looks like it could actually be in-game graphics.

It wasn't that trailer that promised alpha footage, but this one:


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qj_TEsxhrzE

Which looks pretty much like the final game.

As for the Unity trailer: I have a hard time believing the final game will look this good, but it would be awesome if it did. Loving the scale of the buildings, Notre Dame looks fantastic. And I still like the assassin's robes.

Fair enough, but I can definitely see some buildings have Roman-style design forefronts (door on the far left). Style-wise, it seems like a compromise between Italian architecture and the bland architecture of AC3. The builings aren't as overtly-adorned as AC2's, but they're beautiful enough to not be an eyesore. Even if, with buildings as huge as this, I'm doing all my assassinations on rooftops, mate. They can only do enough inaccurate architectural styling. It's not like AC1's normal buldings had a significant architectural style (at least Jerusalem), so it shouldn't be that big of a bother.

This is in-game footage, ignoring the note at the start. If you watch closely, you can notice it in the shadows (a bit jaggy due to day/night cycle), the disappearing flying dust, leaves and little papers (processing power), textures and obvious lines of Polygons.

I'm not saying it'll look THIS good on release, but this is game footage, no doubt about it...

What's there to miss? They did the ONLY city with an observable display of actual Arabic culture AND occurrence of historical events during said cycle. No one will probably bother with Arabic Iraq and Muhammad Ali Egypt is too far into the future. Unless they do Persia, it's pretty implausible that they'd revisit the middle east. I'd be totally in for Muhammad Ali/Farouk Egypt though

I have no Arabic on my keyboard :| bs hat akol ya 3m, ga3an

Densely populated, closed marketplaces. The sound of Hookah water gurgling, merchants with their scammy Arab accent, the sun, the palm trees, the sound of the call to prayer, the architecture...there's a lot for me to miss.
Oh come now, I don't think they NEED an incredibly important event to justify a setting (Constantinople and AC II Italy) they just need to explore the culture and delve players into the time period with conspiracies and whatnot...It could take place during the golden age of Islam or early 12th century Spain during the time of Averroes..that'd be interesting for me..

That was a sneak peak, but the next trailer will be the real gameplay trailer. Paris looks AMAZING and Arno looks a bit more beefed up than in alpha screens but it is still very nice.

Well, Versailles certainly needs to be in if we're getting a French Revolution game, and it's the perfect place if we're getting interiors of buildings.

so do you guys think Arno could be a german that moved to France...arno is a german name

Why does everyone say "Arno" ? It is most probably Arnauld, a french name.


Also, I hope the game is about both the revolution AND Napoleon, not dealing with him would be a HUGE missed opportunity.

I have no Arabic on my keyboard :| bs hat akol ya 3m, ga3an

Densely populated, closed marketplaces. The sound of Hookah water gurgling, merchants with their scammy Arab accent, the sun, the palm trees, the sound of the call to prayer, the architecture...there's a lot for me to miss.
Oh come now, I don't think they NEED an incredibly important event to justify a setting (Constantinople and AC II Italy) they just need to explore the culture and delve players into the time period with conspiracies and whatnot...It could take place during the golden age of Islam or early 12th century Spain during the time of Averroes..that'd be interesting for me..

Definitely this. My first time in Istanbul in AC - walking through the Grand Bazaar, first glimpse of the Hagia Sofia, standing at the edge of the Bosphorus - reminded me so much of my trip to Istanbul that I got chills each time. The renderings and atmospherics were wonderful.
