The black squares hiding the HUD of the game this really is, NOT assassins creed..

My guess anyways.

Pretty sure it is Assassin's creed.

the streets remind me paris except less developed.

I get a hunchback from notre dame vibe from the screenshot.

which is odd because this is after that time period I think.

Either someone is a really good artist and troll or this is a legit leak.


OOOORRR this is a screen cap from a really well-done unknown game photoshopped onto the screen.

Who knows.

We'll know depending how IGN and Ubisoft respond to the leak.

Long hair was quite common on men for quite a long time whether it be their natural hair or with wigs so not unusual that Arnauld would have a ponytail. Would be expected. But I suppose ponytails are becoming as iconic as the red sash. The beaked hood was supposedly iconic but now going out the window apparently.

I'm more disappointed in the reversion back to a dark haired protagonist. We haven't had that before. :rolleyes: Would be nice to see some variety. Got Edward for a brief break ... and then back to the dark haired assassin. There's more shades than dark brown/black. Light brown, chestnut brown, auburn, platinum blonde (sometimes seen as white), light blonde, dark blonde, strawberry blonde, carrot red ... just to name a few. All the assassins just seem to blend into each other when they all have the same hair color. :( It gets boring. Maybe I can hope the guy has green or grey eyes (not blue or brown for once) for some variation even if his eyes are only seen in cutscenes.

Whether or not that is a screen from Unity is questionable. Looks like it could be a Parisian street but why block the UI? Placeholder perhaps and the screen is from another alpha build? Won't know until Ubisoft decides to start chirping and that may not be until next week ... if we're lucky.

On him being a woman, if he was, I would think you could clearly see a bump near the upper arm to suggest a breast due to the angle of the person. There is none. So either it's a really flat chested woman, she wears a corset (which would be possible given the era), or it's a man. But if the woman was wearing a corset, the waist would be far more defined. Those things were often pulled so tight they could deform a woman's torso over time. That's true of any binding practice (China with women's feet, some Polynesian societies with neck rings, etc). The waist looks normal so doesn't suggest a corset being worn.

But that link COULD be form ages ago. for example i could say:

And people would believe it was real because of the suppsoed copyright claim on the info i posted.

Believe what you wish but i'm just going to bring up some stuff.

The fact that the screen shows that its on that channel and when you look its not there means it was either a well put together screenshot with some game we have never seen before that looks like its in Paris, or it was a video deleted from ubisoft.. hence the "Copyright claim"

04-04-2014, 07:14 AM
To be honest, this looks like a painting by an extraordinarily talented fan. The alley is exact same one in the trailer. Why is the leak screenshot at the exact same place and not somewhere new? Of course, it could also be a coincidence.

I don't see how people are seeing a woman. The upper body looks too bulky and muscular. In fact, it looks even more bulkier than in the Kotaku screnshots. Hmmmm...

If this is real though, than I'm definitely excited. Looks the city will have a gritty atmosphere.

Very little, if anything, that you see is an actual leak. This is a clever publicity machine that keeps speculation going at a smart pace, and encourages a plausible narrative around each blip. They never, ever, lose control of the project.

The black squares hiding the HUD of the game this really is, NOT assassins creed..

My guess anyways.

I'd prefer it if the HUD is down there. My eyes don't go to the bottom corners like they want to go to the top corners when looking at the world. Traditionally, you place HUD above the action because that's the quickest place for the eyes to go, and in the early days of arcade games where virtually everything was a twitch game the player needed instant feedback. But now, I'd be happy for that info to move down. I think the view of the street feels significantly bigger in that layout.

Thats because you are looking at a super bad quality blurry image. Look at the larger image and you can see polygons.

That image you posted has also gone through photoshop in order to brrigthen it up and stuff.

marvelfannumber
04-04-2014, 11:03 AM
I dunno this looks kinda sketchy. Look at the people on the left, they look like they are painted and also the texture of the half-timber building in the center looks like paint aswell. I am quite sure this is concept art (whether or not it is for AC: Unity is up for debate). Also notice that the like bar on the YouTube part is green, this indicates that this video (if it existed) is quite old, which is odd.

The position of the HUD also looks just like AC3's HUD, which again would be consistent with concept art for a game that has been in development for quite some time (considering they used a new hud for Black Flag and the leaked gameplay screenshots).

To me, this clearly looks like concept art rather than gameplay.

Looks like the cobbles are a tesselation effect to me, and the distant building's appearance and filtering seems very game-like, as does the wood grain texture to the left (which looks very much like the high-contrast effect of a normal map).

We could easily be wrong, of course: maybe it's a painting, and the black boxes are just covering logos or text data. I didn't see the video before it was pulled.

All voer the timber on the left.

theres also the chair.

the fabric thing over the windows are also repeating.

the charather in the middle is msot definetley made out of videogame polygons, certianly not painted on there. just like the 'correctness of most of theis image is.

also this is not how they do concept art.


the majority of that image is definetley a collection of computer models. if its from assassins creed whose to say.




next week is new cover in game informer i am sure in the cover is the ac unity

Thats what i hope, do they have a reveal date for the cover?? I ahd been hoping they would reveal it today, 1 month after arkham issue..

The screenshot has been leaked on a french website.... 2 weeks ago!

Here : http://www.gamekyo.com/blog_article329564.html Leaked by Sebthemajin, in the comments IN MARCH 21!

It is a target footage. He also said it is Anvil Next (it was this engine in 2012 at least). And he 's not aware of Comet, maybe because it is not as important as Unity.

And he says there is something really different from other AC in that Target Footage, and he hopes it remains in the final version.

The blocked out HUD is really shady, it's what leads me to think it's a fake. I'm with the ones who also think the scenery looks like concept art.

Besides, if the pic really is 2 weeks out, that's probably all the video was. The user who uploaded it is Watch Dogs something and there's a new WD video being taken down by Ubi lately. Perharps that was it?

The original screenshot looks too painterly to be real. If it is, then there's some weird blurring going on in the image. I wouldn't be surprised if someone finds the background is from DeviantArt and someone just slapped a photoshopped Ezio into the image.

Yeah, saw that as well. And if that's the case, I wouldn't be surprised if the sword's from AC 1 too - it's too small to see clearly, but it appears to be in a scabbard, at least to me.

This honestly just looks to be a well-done digital painting. It doesn't have the same feel of the screenshots that were leaked earlier or the Unity teaser trailer. Not to mention that someone tried to pass this off as a youtube video when all evidence suggests otherwise.

That's what I'm hoping for. I visited gameinformer's hub archieve and they already did covers for Destiny, The Order 1886, and Batman Arkham Knight. I think this month's cover will be either The Division or AC Unity. Honestly April would be a great month for AC Unity (articles and interviews) since nothing is going on in April.

You may be correct, but you may be wrong. Photoshop is a powerful tool.

The youtube video was just using the screenshot of the french guy on Gamekyo. (this year the french are productive with AC informations and leaks, lol)

It is NOT photoshop, it's a real render target done in 2013, long before the teaser. So don't pay attention, it's not in-game screenshot.

I really dig the protagonist's new design.

Being a target render video it would be the OLD design. Like how ac3's target video had the red slim Connor.


I much prefer the one seen in the sneek peek trailer, but i hope this outfit is still in the game shomehow, hopefully like more of a starter outfit.

Not a chance. The Order: 1886 has 4 characters in a victorian london setting. Plus it's screen is specified so you can't see their feet.

Not to mention in this screenshot, the building in the distance looks like a building from paris.

Well most of those half-timbered houses in Paris were replaced shortly after the Great Fire of London in 1666. So I doubt that would be the case considering how broad of a time difference there is (this can sort of be seen in this engraving):

1st, i could be wrong but couldn't this be one of those fan-arts on Victorian London made after Ac2?

2nd: if this is real. the sneekpeak looked pretty much like concept art in the empty street for me too, maybe it's the uncanny valey but it felt quite wrong (even tho the grapphics were amazing when the video was playing, i mean when the image was stopped). It has the same style that empty street so i do believe it's true, however it's so compressed (that's what makes the blurriness) that it looks like hand-made concept art.

but as you can see Arno has black/brown hair and a ponytail

what is with the assassins creed protags and ponytails:cool:

Just something I noticed. But his outfit doesn't look like the traditional assassin hood. It actually looks like the red trimmed blue jackets of the American continental army or the French army post-revolution. So could arno's story start off as a soldier? I know French troops served in the American Revolition and many others like Lafayette came to America to serve the colonists. So it could be possible that Arno became an assassin during the American revolution. Serving either the US or the French forces there. Meaning he could have been trained by Connor. This could be the way Connor could get a cameo in this game. It would also explain the blue and red looking coat he has in this picture and the white military style belt over his shoulder and waist with cartridge box on the back. Just a theory. He may just steal a uniform from a French soldier for a mission an that's what this is. But just a theory

I know right! Seriously, Ezio, Connor, Edward, now this guy. What's with all the ponytails? Don't get me wrong, men with ponytails look smexy AF, but after a while...

Also, it's entirely possible for a French Assassin to have such long hair. It wast he style back then, and a soldier's queue was supposed to be especially long in France.

That's what I thought it was! It looks like exactly the same blade! Could it be a family heirloom? After all according to the email in AC4 the French Revolution Assassin, and Altiar are both from Desmond's mother's side. So this "Arno" character is most likely Altiar's direct descendant, meaning that could very well be the EXACT SAME blade that Altiar used in AC1, and also that we still clearly are not done with Desmond's ancestors yet so that whole claim that the email in AC4 was just a fake that was thrown together with the most fan requested settings just doesn't sit with me since it had all of the previous assassins in it AND the new one mentioned as well. Including two possible sequels listed(Example being: 19th century New England and American Midwest(potential Connor sequel during the Indian Wars/War of 1812) and the other being 19th century Napoleonic Wars(potential Arno sequel if things go well). So I feel that that email was thought through a little more than they claimed.

I wonder what kind of Role Altiar will have in this game. I hope its not flashbacks again like ACR. I would rather that his philosophies and character traits(and apparently weapons) were passed down in his family and culminate in his Great Great Great Great.....Great......etc.....Grandson Arno. Who could become just as influential as his ancestor.

Actually that's not true. Blades don't just rust for no reason, for that to happen the blade would have had to be left in a very wet place, or buried in the ground(this is considered relic condition for collectable weapons), but yet family heirlooms, or something that has been displayed indoors or a very long time, even something that has been maintained and sharpened and cleaned for years would be just as good as new.

For example my neighbor has a collection of authentic American Civil War weapons and one of the rifles in still fireable in mint condition. And the sabers he has are still in great condition to this day with no rust at all jut a blueish splotchy tint develops on the metal (patina). Now granted that those are only 150 years old, but I've seen others with American Revolution sabers and memorabilia in just as good condition and that's been over 200 years and they are still in fine condition, because they have been taken care of over the years.

So that blade would have to be 500 or 600 years old for Arno to use it, which isn't unreasonable since if every family member before him used the blade and cleaned it, sharpened it, maintained it, it could still be in excellent shape. Take the Japanese for example. Until WW2 it was common practice for families to hand down Katana swords, and some Japanese soldiers carried swords that had been in their families since the 14 and 1500s, just as clean and sharp as ever. So if it is a significant heirloom(it belonged to Altiar so obviously yes) then it is very possibly the very same blade, cared for and passed down in Altiar's family for generations.

Well this person has that mini-sword Altair had....

Also has a single long sword...

Another random thing on his butt in a sheath or something. I assume it's blowdarts.

Then there's the assassin symbol on his leg.


The place does look like slums. Those wooden buildings looks like one of the houses that survived the great fire of london. So this might be the slums of london. This is pure speculation tho.

Really does look too well-done to be part of a clip. I'm not talking about the graphics. I'm talking about the perfect perspective and lighting and overall blend. So I don't think it was in the middle of a video playing rather it is was a pre-made stand alone screenshot.

Actually that's not true. Blades don't just rust for no reason, for that to happen the blade would have had to be left in a very wet place, or buried in the ground(this is considered relic condition for collectable weapons), but yet family heirlooms, or something that has been displayed indoors or a very long time, even something that has been maintained and sharpened and cleaned for years would be just as good as new.

For example my neighbor has a collection of authentic American Civil War weapons and one of the rifles in still fireable in mint condition. And the sabers he has are still in great condition to this day with no rust at all jut a blueish splotchy tint develops on the metal (patina). Now granted that those are only 150 years old, but I've seen others with American Revolution sabers and memorabilia in just as good condition and that's been over 200 years and they are still in fine condition, because they have been taken care of over the years.

So that blade would have to be 500 or 600 years old for Arno to use it, which isn't unreasonable since if every family member before him used the blade and cleaned it, sharpened it, maintained it, it could still be in excellent shape. Take the Japanese for example. Until WW2 it was common practice for families to hand down Katana swords, and some Japanese soldiers carried swords that had been in their families since the 14 and 1500s, just as clean and sharp as ever. So if it is a significant heirloom(it belonged to Altiar so obviously yes) then it is very possibly the very same blade, cared for and passed down in Altiar's family for generations.

I know iron, or metal rusts with oxygen and water. But with Altair's journey...
I just remembered, he can't swim, the blade sure can be alive.


You all pronounce it wrong anyway, who cares about spelling..

I think this takes place in london prior to the great fire actually.

Look at the picture and read this description:

1.) London had become progressively more overcrowded inside its defensive city wall. It had also pushed outwards beyond the wall into squalid extramural slums

2.) The City was essentially medieval in its street plan, an overcrowded warren of narrow, winding, cobbled alleys.

3.) The crucial factor which frustrated firefighting efforts was the narrowness of the streets.Even under normal circumstances, the mix of carts, wagons, and pedestrians in the undersized alleys was subject to frequent traffic jams and gridlock.

4.) Building with wood and roofing with thatch had been prohibited for centuries, but these cheap materials continued to be used.

It's already been suggested in the leaks that the game takes place on both sides of the English Channel. It's possible the shot/image represents London, but there isn't a particular reason to think it can't be Paris. Paris was also a heaving, ramshackle, overcrowded place, and the two cities share a vast amount of history, art, architectural influence and so on.

London was famously rebuilt on an identical city plan to the one it had been before the Great Fire, hence its weird form today. There aren't many places in London quite as narrow as that, and none I can think of near a major central London church or cathedral, but then again it's quite possible that streets which are alleyways today once contained shopfronts.

I think it was the Neogaf thread, with the same leaker yet again claiming to have met a Ubisoft team member on a plane (for the second time in two games!) that said this, but I might be misremembering that. I'm 99% sure that it was one of the leaks that also proved to contain genuinely accurate info anyway. Unless my brain made this up for fun, but I don't think it did.

The houses that were especially blamed for the fire had enormous overhanging upper storeys, which pushed so far into the street that many buildings were almost touching their neighbours. This made it particularly easy for sparks to spread the fire. So you're right, there are signs of that kind of thing: the darkness at street level on what is obviously a sunny day, and the signs of possibly warped and reinforced areas in the wooden supports. But although the buildings were rebuilt on the same footprints as the old ones after London's fire, there was a lot more care taken to prevent owners from repeating the mistakes of the unregulated spread of the upper floors (which had actually been banned prior to the fire, but nobody had listened to the orders).

OK, I will explain you one more time: the youtube video doesn't exist. Actually a video exists, but the only leak was this screenshot on Gamekyo when the sneekpeak was released:

http://image.noelshack.com/fichiers/2014/12/1395417634-snapshot20140321165804fg.jpg

On this page: http://www.gamekyo.com/blog_article329564.html Sebthemajin posted the 03/21/2014 at 06:01 PM.

2 posts below: "BTW I am still amazed that the images you share don't go all around the Web, everyone doesn't care about Gamekyo, even when a guy shows us a world-exclusive screen"

I'm pretty sure it's legit, because everybody in the Gamekyo communty trust that guy, and he uploaded the screenshot 2 WEEKS AGO. He did nothing to spread the picture on internet, neither the rest of the communtity.

Now, for the ones who trust him, he said a few interesting things.


it's from a render target video, he saw it last year.
Fun fact: Unity was supposed to be a Wii U game only.
Talking about the first scene of the teaser, the Hall of Mirrors: "it's funny to see this place empty and without damage."
Render target video was more ambitious than the sneekpeak, but it was a bit too much (he's talking about all the effetcs), the sneekpeak looks finer, more homogeneous, and more pleasant for the eyes.
But he has a preference for the render target concerning the characters appearance.
Something in that Target footage is completely new in the ACs, something he was waiting for a long time, but he doesn't know if it will still be in the final version. He didn't mention it, because he doesn't want to give vain hope.



The Youtube video was just the screenshot, plus a part of the sneekpeak.

I just hope the graphics will look like this and better. As I said above, I hope it the upgrade will be obvious and noticeable, not just some additional particle effects. When PS3 was released, we all saw the massive difference from PS2 and same from PS2 compared to PS1. With PS4, the tech demos like Agni’s Philosophy are epic but the trailers of games released/announced so far are like high quality PS3 games.

I really hope that this is not a representation of what the game looks like precisely because it looks like a painting. I thought it might be concept art or a screen shot of the unfinished game. The world looks like a painting. Like it literally looks like paint and brush strokes. That's not AC's style. AC usually has highly realistic looking design, that doesn't look like comics or paintings like some kind of borderlands deal. It would hurt the series IMO if things start to look to cartoony, or with a graphic style that looks like paint. That would ruin it for me actually. It ruins the realistic feel to me.

I just really feel it is a concept art if it is real just based on the fact that the painting like texture/look on everything isn't consistent with the style of the series, and the paint look isn't consistent with the reveal trailer either.

It doesn't really look cartoony, I cant really describe it, more like it LITERALLY looks like a painting. Thus why I think its just a concept artwork. If it has a look like this when it is done it would have a pinting/comic look too it almost like Call of Juarez Gunslinger. I don't like that. It doesn't suit AC. And they already gave us a Sneak Peak trailer where everything looked very realistic(by realistic I mean stone looks like stone, wood like wood, not everything looking like a painting.) So if the look was supposed to be a Gunslinger/borderlands like painting deal they would have made the trailer with the same look/feel. Its also not consistent with the rest of the series. So i'm fairly convinced this is a still of a concept painting.

No but I'm just giving an example of a game that has a visual that looks like artwork rather than real life. Borderlands looks more like a Comic in that its a weird 2D-3D combo so it looks like a comic strip, Gunslinger does a similar thing but to less of a 2D extent and a bit more detail. I just don't want to see AC reduced to a gimmicky thing like a "painting" look to their worlds. I would personally hate that since the past ACs have had very realistic textures, to go to an imitation of paint would be a massive step backward to me when they have new technology to work with to make things look even more realistic. That's what I'm trying to say.

Yes exactly what I mean. That is a still from the trailer! It looks photorealistic, the photo at the beginning of this thread is what I was referring to as painting like. The difference between it and the trailer stills(which is much more like the AC style of photorealism) is what makes me feel that the photo this tread is about is concept art

And as to the Borderlands thing. I know its 3D but as someone pointed out is is intended to simulate the art style of a Comic book. It is fully 3D but designed to give a hint/appearance of being 2D comic like artwork. Like Doubleclick said its like a "living comic book". That's what I meant its a very stylized game, while AC trends toward photorealism

Just throwing this out there... Is this possibly Patrice's game, 1666? All the Great Fire of London theories and all. Not sure what the status of that game is after having been volleyed back and forth between Ubisoft and THQ, but it's possible.

In any case, I highly doubt this is from actual Unity gameplay. And as others have said, that "ponytail" is totally a scabbard; you're basically looking at Ezio with Altair's short sword here. It looks great though, it's either a target video/pre-viz screenshot or a fake from a highly talented artist.

He probably would and rightfully so, but as of right now it's technically Ubisoft's property, isn't it? As far as I know, Patrice never had any legal claim to it, it was just his idea. THQ technically owned it, but then the whole company got bought out by Ubisoft, so it's theirs now. Last I heard Patrice was fighting to get it back, but it didn't look good for him. Legally Ubi should be able to do whatever they want with it, be it releasing it, cancelling it, or blending it into an AC game.

They didn't cancel it, they have put it on hold, because according to Patrice's contract if the game is cancelled the rights automatically revert back to him.

Patrice believes that the game have been technically cancelled, that's why is fighting Ubisoft.

Patrice actually rejoined Ubisoft after the buy-out, but for reasons I forgot, he left again (actually being escorted out of offices by security) and is currently in a battle to get 1666 back. As for 1666, I have no idea what its status is other than being put on hold.

For clarification and pedantry's sake. Ubisoft also only brought part of THQ - not the entire company as some posts have suggested

To this point I have the impression Ubi will take any historical third person game around, strip it and make it AC. I'm sure we will see an ACsorized 1666 down the road eventually, probably a sequel to the Osiris AC :p I wouldn't even be surprised if they start 1666 AC just to show they are releasing the game, which they bought and its theirs now.

It's to be noted that 1666 didn't even have a full year in production (i.e. production stage, not total development). Not even sure if it had half a year of that. So Ubi pretty much owns all the pre-pro material mostly.

No but I'm just giving an example of a game that has a visual that looks like artwork rather than real life. Borderlands looks more like a Comic in that its a weird 2D-3D combo so it looks like a comic strip, Gunslinger does a similar thing but to less of a 2D extent and a bit more detail. I just don't want to see AC reduced to a gimmicky thing like a "painting" look to their worlds. I would personally hate that since the past ACs have had very realistic textures, to go to an imitation of paint would be a massive step backward to me when they have new technology to work with to make things look even more realistic. That's what I'm trying to say.

Yeah, Borderland, like Prince of Persia (the first game on PS3) which I assume it’s the 4th one, had this effect, they call it “Cell Shaded” as far as I know. But AC:U doesn’t look like that, whether in the sneak peak or the leaked screenshot.

Yes. What I am saying is that the shot this thread is about has a paint like effect. Not the cell shaded look but an effect that looks like a painting. In other words the shot looks nothing like the photorealistic trailer or like Prince of Persia. It LITERALLY looks like a painting. So in my opinion since it doesn't match the video and looks like paint. It is either a concept painting. Or a really good photoshop job using a painting as a background(because the only thing that doesn't really look painty is the character. The background looks like a painting/fantastical/unphotorealistic in my opinion

I hope that thing sticking out of his hood isn't his bangs.

It is sin for assassins to have such long, protruding bangs. :mad:

And he better not be blonde.

Blonde + that outfit = uh-uh gurl.

Give me a break thats concept art, the hair won't work like that in game.

Probably a more slicked version of Ezio's ACR style (no tail). He's probably attending a ton of galas and needs to look debonair.

But I guess when he's on the move, some of the hair will fall to his face.

Of all the things to be worries about about this game, so many people are worries that he will have a ponytail lol.

How many times did Edward's whole face change? First he kinda looked like Alex Mercer, then in some of the CGI trailers he was clean shaven and had his hair down.. and then his hair turned brown, and then in the final game he was blonde, his hair was in a ponytail, and he had a beard.

Besides it is just concept art. Remember How different Edward looked in concept art?http://gamentrain.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/313774_422663141159815_438586194_n.jpg

Going by the setting I'm going to say long hair possibly a pony tail, which will be tied off with a bow.

Well... don't be surprised if we get another ponytail. It was very common for men to have ponytails for the time. Also, during this time at least in France I believe (because they were the fashion setters) it was also popular to style your hair after wigs with your natural hair. Women hairstyles were more extreme.

Not sure if this is the concept art of Unity, I know I said this on the other thread but I think Arnaud has brown hair.

ehhh... it's hard to trust concept art.. considering it is just concept now since AC4 with the amount of changes Edward had

I know, but it's the only picture we got so far. And they already might have a lot of changes with the final design already.
