Assassin's Creed: Unity

Assassin’s Creed: Unity will launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on October 28, Ubisoft announced.

Pre-orders include access to ‘The Chemical Revolution,’ an exclusive single-player mission with 30 minutes of additional content. In this mission, you’ll help the Father of Modern Chemistry, Antoine Lavoisier, escape his captors and recover his poison bomb formula.

A Collector’s Edition is also being released, which includes:

  • Figure of Arno poised atop a gargoyle
  • Music box that plays a remixed version of the Unity theme
  • Official soundtrack
  • Art book
  • Collector’s game box
  • Two in-game missions

The game, set among the turmoil of the French Revolution, offers a revamp of the series’ key pillars, including combat and navigation, which have been rebuilt “from the ground up.”

And as demonstrated earlier today, players will also be able to form their own Brotherhood and play with up to three friends in online co-op. This mode will feature story missions based around the Brotherhood and various historical events set during the French Revolution. Co-op is fully integrated into the game world, rather than being a separate experience. You’ll be able to call upon your friends at any time.

The story follows the young assassin Arno, who is drawn into the Assassin’s order and finds himself in the struggle for cntrol over the fate of France. He’ll be able to fully customize his weapons, equipment, outfits, and specialized skills.
