Assassins,

We have an important announcement about the release date of Assassin's Creed Unity. Today, Ubisoft announced that Assassin’s Creed Unity will be released on November 11 in the US (North, South, & Central America) and on November 13 in EMEA (Europe, Middle East, Asia).

Read more about the details of the new release date for Assassin's Creed Unity in this UbiBlog post (http://blog.ubi.com/assassins-creed-unity-release-date-november-11/).

Vincent Pontbriand, senior producer at Ubisoft, on the new launch date of Assassin's Creed Unity:

As a truly next-gen game, it’s required a lot of learning in addition to the normal production work. As we got close to the finish, we realized we were near the target but still needed a bit more time to hone some of the details to make sure Assassin’s Creed Unity is exceptional. We sincerely appreciate players’ commitment to the game and their patience. It’s just a couple more weeks. And it’s going to be worth it.
We hope you understand the reasoning behind this change to Assassin's Creed Unity's release date. Please feel free to post your feedback, thoughts, and comments in this thread.

See you in November, Assassins!

I was just reading this and was gonna post it lol :p

But yeah, them pushing it further may be a good thing. Tying any loose ends and making sure glitches are not running amuck..


And this means that it's releasing around the same time as Rogue.

AC Rogue will now be aligned with the launch of AC Unity in EMEA on November 13th. Still November 11 in NCSA.

Thanks for clearing this up. Still a bit disappointed now. :( Two games releasing on the same day...

BUT maybe those 2 weeks more dev time are worth it and Unity is polished as hell then. :p

But didn't someone (I guess it was Amancio) from Ubi say that story-wise it's better to play Unity first. So I'm not gonna play Rogue first even if I'd have it one day early or so...

Rogue to complete the Kenway story ? or Unity to experience the Next Gen first?

I will always support delays as they are never made for some smart business reason, but because the developers want to improve the quality of the game. So they're ALWAYS a good thing! Unity looks awesome, I hope the devs get to realize their full vision :D!

I'm not 100% sure about this, but I remember some official voice saying it would be better to play Unity first because of the connection between both.

An AC game getting delayed for once....huh, probably for the better honestly. The more time they have the better the final product will be (Unless it's Duke Nukem Forever).

I knew a delay would come and to be honest I am glad. Every gameplay video there has been obvious glitches. I hope the extra two weeks will allow them to improve the game and not ship a game that's full of AI, crowd and gameplay glitches. This was my main concern for unity, the game looks fantastic but it's full of glitches. I am happy to be honest, it's only two weeks, I will survive!

JustPlainQuirky

If it is because of glitches, I really hope they can fix them, and I wish that doest mean some kind of downgrade....

m4r-k7
08-28-2014, 05:32 PM
It won't be a graphical downgrade. Its two weeks difference, it's not like months with watch dogs. They are making a day one patch, not an overhaul of the game. It's definitely a glitch thing.

They will definetly still have a day one patch even after this though. We all know how it is with modern games these days.

Oh, only 2 weeks. I guess I can handle that.. Months, that would've been annoying.

And luckily I was able to put my parents' address in my pre-order, the delivery is going to be a lot less awkward since I have no idea if I'm going to live in my current address any more by the time of the release date.. >_>

Basically if you play Rogue first, a part of Unity will be spoiled for you if I remember correctly, which seems odd but okay.


I don't like this at all, 99% of the time when a game gets pushed back ''to make sure it's optimal'' it's actually the other way around where they are trying rush parts to meet the new deadline/dropping standards. I hope Amancio gives us a clear answer in the podcast :(.

08-28-2014, 05:48 PM
they'd better fix the game of any bugs before they release it then, seeing as watch dogs got postphoned and was still a mess when it came out

I though it was obvious.





I don't like to watch others playing games though, can't see any fun on watching others playing instead of playing them myself, if I can't have the game i still don't watch walktroughs because, seriously, games are supposed to be played not watched.

Sushiglutton
08-28-2014, 06:45 PM
What does worry me a bit is that two weeks is like nothing. I have a feeling the devs would in fact need much more, but the holidays are forcing them to rush the game. AC3 really needed an extra six months or something (still would have been a very problematic game). Let's hope Unity is given all the time it needs.

Personally I'd be fine waiting to spring if it meant the devs could perfect the game.

2 weeks is not a big delay.

The game will probably go gold just one extra week that it would have.

Because two weeks is very little, wonder if that will be enough if they are having issues. Also the fact that they are allready flagging for a day 1 patch. Not saying Unity will be another AC3, but it seems to me the devs are under great pressure to deliver the game pre X-mas and I'm worried if they will be able to at the quality they want.

They've been working on it for 4-5 years. They've had enough time.

And they need an extra 2 weeks and are getting it.

This is great news for three reasons:

1) PC version has always been delayed anyway, now you console peasants get to experience what we always do ;)

2) Extra time to polish a game is always good. I just hope it'll be enough.

3) Gives me more time to save up, as I wasn't sure I was gonna be able to afford getting the game in October anyway.

I got an email saying that this has happened, & I am quite conflicted. Let's list the pros & cons:

Pros:
- Unity should be a much less buggy game
- I get two ACs in one day
- It's only a short delay

Cons:
- Unity might be having major issues
- I don't know which AC to play first
- The delay means that I won't get Unity in my school break, so I will have less time to play it

- Unity might be having major issues



Holy piss stick. THIS IS A PRO. Cause they are delaying it, to FIX this stuff.


Some of you guys really don't understand why delays are a good thing.


Just been on GAF. This means that: The Crew, AC Unity and AC Rogue are releasing on the same day.

Surely that's not a good business strategy? Releasing 2 AC games on the same day is a bit risky IMO anyway and secondly, The Crew is a new IP that could possibly have sales affected by Rogue and Unity.

I don't get it.

If the trophy/achievement list is real - then there are too many co-op trophies for those who are solo gamers and like collecting trophies - me :)

You are saying you were joking about people not being gamers if they watch let's plays.

Then you say "seriously" games are meant to be played, not watched

You contradict yourself

I don't like to watch others playing games because I honestly don't have the patience, "seriously" because logic says games are supposed to be played, I'm not contradicting myself because I don't criticize and I don't think anything bad of you if you like nor do I care.

As long as the delay isn't like Watch_Dogs', but I doubt it since Unity is only for the new consoles and PC. It's only a couple of weeks after the original date, so it's not bad at all. I'm still playing Unity first since I find it more interesting than Rogue. I still don't think Rogue is worth the full price.

They've been working on it for 4-5 years. They've had enough time.

And they need an extra 2 weeks and are getting it.

I don't think they have pressure.


They have not had enough time, that's precisely why they delayed it :).

I think the devs have a lot of pressure in the sense that they must release the game this fall. Ubi has released AC games every fall since 2009. If Unity was to be delayed it would disrupt the schedule. And that would affect AC2015 as well. Obv it's just speculation, but I'm worried they would rather need two months (or more) than two weeks.

We will find out in November!

2014 will forever be known as the year of "The Great Delays!" What game will be delayed next? Place your bets, folks.

Anyways, it's only by two weeks, but now it'll be releasing on the same day as Rogue. I'm not getting either of them until Amazon has some "black friday" deals on them. So, this news doesn't really bother me too much. Only problem is, now what do I play first? Someone said that playing Rogue first would spoil something in Unity, but will playing Unity spoil anything in Rogue?? Really, my decision will be based on the modern day story. So, whatever game's MD storyline progresses the furthest will be the one I play last... but, I really would prefer to play Rogue first, since it's a last gen game and has close ties to the Kenway saga.

Maybe I'll just wait for you guys to play both games and then ask your opinions on what to play first when I get them.

If they don't announce the release date its nothing but they already set the date to release last time, its not about the matter of need to wait for 2 weeks more but the responsibility. And giving such excuse just to improve the game. No doubt that there is sure a obvious different graphic level between the actual gameplay and the demo just like the watch dog case even im willing to believe they are really do "improve" the game.

It doesn't matter if the graphics is lower than at E3.

Firstly because E3 is a place to show off, it's not sett in stone that the games will be like that. Every game developer show off at E3 and "downgrades".

Secondly it's current gen only. It can't have the graphics of last gen unless they had made it cross gen like Black Flag. And Watch_Dogs is also cross gen, therefore a "downgrade" won't be anything like last gen.

I donít think the excuse is a negative thing, I mean when they delay something, itís only normal that they explain themselves for that. Iíve also heard that there will be a day one patch for AC:U.

I believe it's pure marketing purpose. Since they can't advance ACRogue, they decided to push ACUnity, so that both game would come out together hand in hand for it to The AC Week. Because truly even though two weeks is a relatively long period for minor polishment, it's clearly not enough if the goal here is to remove all the flaws. Or this may mean they have encounter a severe issue and will be working night & day to fix it up before release. But I'm still confident it's only for marketing improvement.

News from an interview of Game Informer to Jean Guesdon, Brand Content Manager and Creative Director for the Assassin's Creed franchise!

- At the moment the developers are not discussing about a come back of the numbers in the titles of the AC games. It could happen though, the developers are trying to stay "flexible" about that.

- Discussing about the future of the saga, Guesdon confirmed that they introduced the co-op with Unity and at the moment they are "investigating" other functions to explore the potential of the saga itself.

- The developers are trying to create the first "real-time trasmedia universe" with the present day, that now is following the real flow of time. This time it's not just agglomerating pieces of story together, but it is also a way to engrave that within our reality. The idea is to bring the players to the AC universe in their day to day life, making them immerse in it.

- The main character in the present day will be the player himself. The developers know that there are a lot of players that really appreciate the metanarrative with a "global universe", where every game is just a snippet but, at the same time, there are other players who are not interested in that. The developers are aiming to create every time the best possible experience for every player. So, if there are people interested on all of this, it will be there, and the developers "have things to tell", but at the same time if people are not interested, the idea is not to be too intrusive.

- The present day will remain anyway, because it is part of the narrative universe, so it will be in Unity as well, but not in the way we know (compared to the past).

- To the question "Which is the biggest threat for the saga?" Guesdon answered that every year is a threat, because the team has to make a good game while remaining flexible and reactive, creating every time new elements.

- The team has plans and ideas for the future of the saga, so theat it can continue without losing its soul, but obviously those can not be revealed.

Hi guys I know that AC:rouge is PS3 & XB360 but i really want AC:U on ps3,I know that the company should go to next gen but just remember us over 20 million PS3 is sold

huh....I know that no one will listen but even if they release last gen let it be late at any time they want

I was a big fan for AC From PC,PS3 even PSP but my PC is going old for top games

So... Good Luck Ubisoft no more AC for me i think :(

Unity would never run on PS3 or xbox 360 at the magnitude it has been intended ! with all due respect if Unity was to be ported to last gen consoles expect an inferior game !! plus it has been developed with Next Generation development kits that Last Generation consoles would not be able to run .

HOW CAN U DO THIS UBISOFT? :( HOW? :(

http://blog.ubi.com/assassins-creed-unity-release-date-november-11/


I agree with the posted quote here.

Thanks a lot....I planned and booked my last week of vacation for this year at work so I could play AC Unity all week, to now see that it's been delayed. And no I can't change my vacation week. How utterly disappointing. I respect delaying it to fix some bugs and tweaks, but come on now. After all the hype from E3 this year and the comic cons and stuff I believe there is no excuse for this. It looked "polished" enough to me. I've bought all the AC games for ps3 and they have all worked just fine from day 1.

I was thinking of upgrading to the collector's edition but no way. You're not getting more of my money. :mad:

Hello,

Its not very clear for me when the game is being released because;
In the upper right you see 'Pre order now available on november 11*
Coming november 13 to europe and november 14 to the UK

But what do they mean with available on november 11 if it is being released on the 13 and the 14?

News from an interview of Game Informer to Jean Guesdon, Brand Content Manager and Creative Director for the Assassin's Creed franchise!

- At the moment the developers are not discussing about a come back of the numbers in the titles of the AC games. It could happen though, the developers are trying to stay "flexible" about that.

- Discussing about the future of the saga, Guesdon confirmed that they introduced the co-op with Unity and at the moment they are "investigating" other functions to explore the potential of the saga itself.

- The developers are trying to create the first "real-time trasmedia universe" with the present day, that now is following the real flow of time. This time it's not just agglomerating pieces of story together, but it is also a way to engrave that within our reality. The idea is to bring the players to the AC universe in their day to day life, making them immerse in it.

- The main character in the present day will be the player himself. The developers know that there are a lot of players that really appreciate the metanarrative with a "global universe", where every game is just a snippet but, at the same time, there are other players who are not interested in that. The developers are aiming to create every time the best possible experience for every player. So, if there are people interested on all of this, it will be there, and the developers "have things to tell", but at the same time if people are not interested, the idea is not to be too intrusive.

- The present day will remain anyway, because it is part of the narrative universe, so it will be in Unity as well, but not in the way we know (compared to the past).

- To the question "Which is the biggest threat for the saga?" Guesdon answered that every year is a threat, because the team has to make a good game while remaining flexible and reactive, creating every time new elements.

- The team has plans and ideas for the future of the saga, so theat it can continue without losing its soul, but obviously those can not be revealed.

By the way, do we have a thread for general Unity discussions? Ive noticed that Rogue has one.
nope but I can make one if you want me to like I did with rogue and that got bloody massive

If anything is downloaded onto a console, it will be available on every account.

I can't stand that ubisoft is not taking the full advantage of the PS4 because the Xbox One can not handle it. Why do I get punished when invested my money into a better system.

Right now There are way more PS4 systems sold then there are Xbox one. So why punish us.

Anyways... I loved AC Black Flag and recommended it to a lot of people that also enjoyed it. It is just sucks that this is happening to the first AC game that is made just for the next generation. Only to be handicapped by the Xbox One.

Now I have nothing against the Xbox One but when it starts effecting my experience that is a totally different story.

Sorry ubisoft. I will NOT be buying this years Assassins Creed Unity I have changed my preordered today. I know that I am not along in this argument.

Until Ubisoft can start taking advantage of the systems power that I bought and not gimping their games on it. I will not be buying Ubisofts games. which I have been buying a lot of. I have more ubisoft games then any other publisher.... sadly..

Sorry as a costumer I hate this....


If you were buying a sports car and your competitor had less horse power then your car, would you go out of your way to make sure that car had the same horse power, by lowering the power of your car.

I don;t think so...

You're cancelling a preorder because you are missing out on seeing a few extra pixels?
That's certainly going to show Ubisoft that we won't stand for having a few pixels stolen from us! Those pixels would have greatly enhanced my gaming experience!

And anyway, Ubisoft has announced that they did NOT downgrade Unity for the PS4, people merely misinterpreted what they said.

I just don't see how you can misinterpret "We locked them at the same specs to avoid debate". Especially as the next thing they said for damage control was "final specs are still to be locked down".

Debate over what though? It's very vague.
People merely assumed that it was because of Microsoft and their "inferior console", but until I see some hard evidence showing that Microsoft did indeed pay off Ubisoft to equalise PS4/X1 so that X1 doesn't appear inferior, then I will treat it as no more than speculation and rumour.

You don't have to get them all at once.
Even if you preordered them all, ask the store to hold onto it for a week or so and pay it off then, after you finished the first game.

Sure, you could hold off getting them for as long as you wanted but what if you've been looking forward to all of them for however long and you wanted to play them as soon as they're released and you don't want any spoilers so you feel like you have to rush them which is never fun, defeating the purpose of them being games

I'm sure if you managed to wait all these months you can afford to wait a little longer. Like you said, if you rush into these things you'll ruin the experience. You've only got one shot at it so make it count. As for spoilers... best you can do is avoid places like these on the internet..

Stealth:

The whistle should have never been taken out, that should always be in the game.

the cover system needs work, maybe have a indicator on the screen that shows where we switch to like Splinter cell conviction did.

What happened to assassination on a bench and putting the guard there?

Combat:

Combat is better now, but why did you remove human shields. That needs to come back, especially when dealing with snipers.

A double parry would be interesting (two guards attacking at once)

Guards/Enemies:

Why do the guards (police in the city) attack us when we are helping them? That should be fixed, if they are in a fight and we help them by killing those that they are fighting we shouldn't then be attacked.

NPCs:

It's nice that there are so many NPCs but really they're aren't really doing that much. Yes they are doing more then they used to, but there really was no need for 5000 NPCs when they're just there to fill the screen. Perhaps add more to their animations or cut some down to improve the game in other places.

More interactions with the NPCs would be nice too, more blending opportunities. If there is a group of 3 or so people talking, why would they just let some random guy stand so close to them and hear their conversation without partaking in it. Let the next assassin talk to the NPCs when blending in groups like that

Co-op/Customization (the most important part):

Okay this is the biggest thing in the game and hope they keep it going.

1. Love the customization, but we need more gear.

2. Weapon placement is vital, why would you show screenshots with that but then remove it in the final game? In the image below notice the assassin in brown has a normal one handed sword on his back. Not only that but he is carrying it like Altair was his short-sword. And take it a step further. we're assassins so we should hide some of our weapons, for the stealth class in Unity there is a chest piece that has a vest for armor. then why not put the dagger or daggers under the vest. I would have put mine under and on my back. So all you could see were the handles.

3. We need other weapons too, where are the daggers/short-swords? That would have been perfect for the stealth assassin that wants to fight and move fast. Daggers should be the fastest weapons.

4. Great that you added the health, stealth, range, and combat mini-skills into the gear. But why not take it a step further? The heavier your clothes (health and combat) the slower you are. That would really change your experience.

5. Character creation should be ideal for co-op, have co-op be separate from the single player story. What you guys did with Unity was cool, but this way you can do more with co-op. Have a co-op story, where you create your assassin (race, gender, unique skill) and have us complete the co-op story. The dlcs you can release from then on could be other locations where our assassins travel to complete missions. for example: Co-op story in Italy, but dlc missions in france, and others. Unique skills will be discussed in 6.

6. Sorry but what was the point of communal sense? Why share eagle vision when everyone already has eagle vision. The abilities that we share in this one were a nice first try, but you could have done so much more then this.
a. First lets strip away some of the skills like bombs, range (guns), and poison (berserk/poison bomb). Take away 4 player co-op and put 3 player instead (i know a lot of people will have an issue with this sorry, but just hear me out).
b. So now that we have 3 player co-op, and you have created your assassin you have to pick a unique skill. The three skills are range(bows/guns), poison (sleep, berserk, and original poison), and bombs (distractions, explosives, traps). -Everyone will have the basic smoke bomb though
c. With these three skills your basic skills will be altered to fit that style, bombs would be better at combat, poison will be better at blending, and range will be better at navigation.
d. Now this is where it gets fun, because it's co-op, combining skills is very important. Perhaps i'm only playing with my friend who is using a poison assassin. If I'm using a bow I could combine his poison and my bow to make poison arrows. You get the point. Poison bombs, sleep bombs, berserk bombs, berserk arrow, sleep arrow, bomb arrows.
e. This would make co-op more involved and would generally make players work together more, which is the point of co-op.
f. Some skill upgrades i thought of: Bow - faster nocking, shoot two arrows, shoot further targets, rope arrow (make a zip-line), hold a hostage and shoot an arrow at the same time (Legolas did that i think), etc. Gun - pretty much reload faster, and Rogue's gun features, as well as holding multiple guns... Poison - poison blade, sleep blade, berserk blade, darts of each kind, and the final one could be a blended mechanic where you poison a group of people. So an example would be if you're playing as a female assassin you hold flowers in your hands and have guards smell them. They were laced with poison and boom group of guards are dead or sleeping, etc. Bomb - all the different bombs you can get with the final one being explosive, as well as setting traps.

7. Okay so since you heard the range skill, Unity didn't do range that well. Rifles have no range, they can't shoot as far as the NPCs can half the time. So the range for "ranged weapons" needs to be drastically improved. A bow (if you're using the bow) should be able to shoot someone 2 rooftops away (without the upgrade). Have the assassin adjust his body for the shot, while the reticle stays on the target.

8. Now we all love being master assassins, but I think for the single player we should be master (have every skill) but for co-op we shouldn't ever be masters. We should only be skilled in our parts. That way it makes you really need your teammates.

9. Going along with needing your teammates, having specific guards that are made to beat our class is important. If i'm a bow (range) assassin and I'm doing my own thing and start a fight. There should be a few guards that were specifically made to kill range assassins. So then I will need my friends to take care of them or it'll be hard for me. (not impossible, just hard).
