Paris, 1789. The French Revolution turns a once magnificent city into a place of terror and chaos. Its cobblestoned streets run red with the blood of commoners who dare to rise up against an oppressive aristocracy. Yet as the nation tears itself apart, a young man named Arno will embark upon an extraordinary journey to expose the true powers behind the Revolution. His pursuit will throw him into the middle of a ruthless struggle for the fate of a nation, and transform him into a true Master Assassin.

Introducing Assassin's Creed Unity, the blockbuster franchise's new chapter powered by the all new Anvil engine, rebuilt from the ground up for next gen. From the storming of the Bastille to the execution of King Louis XVI, experience the French Revolution as never before, and help the people of France carve an entirely new destiny.

Key features:

A ruthless new hero for a brutal world: Play as Arno, an entirely new breed of assassin, more lethal than his ancestors. Take down your prey with a range of new weapons such as the Phantom Blade, a Hidden Blade with crossbow capabilities.

Brand new parkour, combat, and stealth gameplay: Enjoy an unprecedented degree of freedom and control over your assassin, brought to life by the new Anvil engine.

  • Full motion control: new parkour mechanics for seamless free running up, across, and down city walls and buildings.
  • A reinvented fighting system provides a richer combat experience based on skill, timing, and flow.
  • Enhanced stealth gameplay including new stealth mode, cover system, and crowd manipulation techniques. Stay hidden, stalk your prey, and strike without warning.

Deep customisation mechanics to craft your own Master Assassin: Craft your own unique play style by choosing your weapons, gear, outfit, and specialised skills. Mix and match from hundreds of possible combinations and build your stealth, fighting, and navigation abilities from a new expansive skill tree. Become the ultimate Master Assassin.

Discover revolutionary Paris, brought to life as never before: Carve your way through a stunning full scale open world city, a feat only possible through the power of the new Anvil engine.

  • Explore detailed building interiors and discover secret underground catacombs and sewers.
  • Embark on ancestral missions, treasure hunts, murder mysteries, contracts, and more. The city is packed full of activities that will captivate you for hours.
  • Witness the chaos of the French Revolution first hand by immersing yourself in realistic, systemic crowds of up to 5,000 AI-driven characters.

A unique co-op experience you must play to believe: In addition to an epic singe-player campaign, join up to three friends and experience the online open world of 18th century Paris. Pull off ambitious heists and take part in unique narrative-driven missions designed exclusively for cooperative play. Sabotage an execution. Protect an emperor. Assassinate a Templar agent. But victory won't be easy; you and your lethal band must rely on communication, coordination, and diverse skills to accomplish your missions, then vanish into the shadows.

The Assassin's Creed Unity Season Pass contains the following bonus content:

  • Assassin's Creed Unity Dead Kings: A new story campaign that takes place after the events of Assassin's Creed Unity. Arno leaves Paris for Saint Denis, a troubled city with a mysterious and extensive underground that holds the crypts of deceased French kings. In this self-contained set of missions, players will explore the murky depths of the Basilica and fight merciless adversaries to uncover the darkest secrets of the city. Arno will equip the new Guillotine gun, a deadly explosive weapon for short and long range combat. In addition to the main missions, players will discover new open-world activities including treasure hunts, murder mysteries and contracts, as well as new co-op missions. Additional weapons, gear, skills and outfits can be unlocked and carried over to the main game.
  • Extend Arno's journey in Paris with more missions, weapons, and customisation options for players looking to further explore Assassin's Creed Unity and the French Revolution. Players can upgrade their customised Master Assassin and take on three added missions. Additionally, players will get over 30 new weapons, equipment, and outfits, including the exclusive Fleur de Lys sword, on launch day.
  • Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China: A new standalone Assassin's Creed experience delivering a new story, setting, and gameplay type. In this 2.5D reimagining of the celebrated franchise developed by Climax Studios, players will perform parkour on the Great Wall of China, kill from the shadows, and take the leap of faith. For the first time ever, players will be transported to the Middle Kingdom in the 16th century, where the last remaining Assassin of the Chinese Brotherhood has returned to her homeland. Players will be immersed in a vibrant setting, inspired by traditional brush paintings and Chinese architecture from a pivotal, historic time period in one of the greatest civilizations in history. Hell-bent on revenge, Shao Jun will use the skills she learned under legendary Assassin Ezio Auditore to exact vengeance. Players will be able to rely on stealth to accomplish their mission, as well as Shao Jun's martial arts training and all-new Assassin gear.

1.0 out of 5 stars Do Not buy this MESS of a game 14 Nov. 2014
By Sarah
I am not normally one for pre-ordering games, but silly, silly me got the new Assassins Creed Unity game (for PC). Yeah I am never pre-ordering again. DO NOT BUY THIS GAME!

This is something that is becoming more and more prevailent; with games that do not work properly on launch. Now while this rant will be to do with the PC version, I have read numerous online articles stating similar issues for the PS4/XBOX one.

First: this game runs like absolute cr@p!. Now bear in mind I have 2 GTX-980 set-up so I can use SLI in my gaming PC - I can only run this on High. And even then I can't get a stable 60fps. I sometimes get lower than 30. Tri or Quad SLI might be enough to get Ultra on HD. 780p is needed just to get a stable framrate. You will need a stupid-lunatic machine to get this run decently. My rig cost me about £3,500 so if yours is less than this good luck running it at anything above medium graphics. And if its not in Ultra the graphics are ugly - texture pop-ins, peoples features popping in, windows becoming black voids if you look at them slightly angled. The list goes on.

Oh and Anti-Aliasing tanks the framrate. Basic AA by the way (FXAA, SMAA up to x8, TXAA) will tank the frame-rate to about 15-20fps (i.e virtually unplayable). So you need AA basically off because the game becomes unplayable with AA on. This should not be happening with modern PC games!

And the crashes. I have this game crash 5 times in about 3 hours. For no apparent reason. This is a technical mess of a game; across all platforms.

And its buggy and unpolished. The pop-in. Oh the pop-in. The terrain pop-in happens just as your running along.

Didn't receive a code for the season pass which should have been included, customer service were clueless and didn't know what to do luckily the season pass is now free :/... The game itself is a buggy mess with the frame rate constantly stuttering, chests and items locked behind apps and websites that barely work... Bought and played every AC game on release day and thought Unity was by far the worst in terms of story, you would be much better off getting Rogue instead of this I thought Rogue was absolutely brilliant.

1.0 out of 5 stars Unable to download after purchasing 16 Nov. 2014

I purchased this game as an online download via Amazon. I've been told the order has been placed and I am not to reorder, but I can't actually download or play the game. I have been advised to check back in a few hours to see if the order has been "processed".

This is mind boggling. I have never experienced this with an online download.
