Assassin’s Creed Unity: Beautiful New Screenshot/Artwork Allegedly Leaked (UPDATED)

Yesterday a new alleged screenshot of Ubisoft’s next generation title Assassin’s Creed Unity was published in a YouTube video by user watchdogs xwk. The video was taken down via copyright claim by Ubisoft itself, possibly confirming the legitimacy of the leak, but not before Reddit user  wq0326 managed to take a snapshot, relayed on Access the Animus‘ Facebook page. Interesting enough, as noticed by the admin of the page, the character seems to be carrying Altair’s dagger strapped to his back.

While there’s no official confirmation that the screenshot comes indeed from the game, the style definitely matches what we saw in the official screenshots previously released by Ubisoft. You can check it out just below compared with an official screenshot that was confirmed to be gameplay. Alternatively, it could also be concept art created for the game.

Whatever it is, it looks lovely, doesn’t it?

We reached out to Ubisoft for a comment on the legitimacy of the screenshot.

Updated: NeoGAF user Endless found out a clearer version of the picture (that was added below) on French image hosting site NoelShack. This version definitely seems more like a piece of concept art, but it’s hard to be 100% sure.

Update 2: Ubisoft Communication Manager Alberto Ziello responded to our inquiry, but unfortunately it’s just a “no comment.”

Of course I saw the picture published on the web. We don’t comment on rumors or speculation on unofficial material. We’ll share official gameplay pictures of Assassin’s Creed Unity over the coming months.

  • Very pretty but…………I’ll stick with watch dogs :-d

    • Giuseppe Nelva

      It’s not like you need to choose. This one is several months away 😀 By when this releases you’ll probably know Watch Dogs better than your kitchen.

      • Lol yer I will be glued to that game. I’ve always enjoyed the look of AC but I can’t deal with stealth in a whole game.

    • Xtreme Derp

      Watch Dogs will be great, even if not quite as pretty as infamous.

  • Fersay Ferrera

    Looks really good, I am just afraid when they start the downgrade. lol

    • Aiden Holmes

      This is for current gen only.

      • da Boss

        No, Unity is for next gen. There is another game for current, but this is for next gen.

        • Qal

          no, xbox one and PS4 are current gen. 360/PS3 are last gen. get with the times.

          • Jameson_Bond

            Except that everyone in media will continue to refer to them as ‘next gen’ until they stop making games for the consoles that most people still use, which will still be considered current until probably next spring.

          • Fango

            Thank you ! lol we need more people to stop using the term “next gen” already

          • da Boss

            True true, my bad, did not fully take in that the PS4/X1 are here in full force. Correction: Unity is for current gen, and the other game is for last gen. Better?

          • Qal

            yep, sorry, just kind of a pet peeve.

        • KIRBYdaDOG

          so its coming out on ps5, good to know.

    • Hans Wurst

      As this again! is obviously PC footage people simply should stop being unreasonable and expect console versions to look worse.

  • Delsin Row

    if the navals fight step aside of this game , i will buy it for sure. because i really need an assassin creed like old times.

    • Oliver Queen

      I’d say they will be doing something really different for this game

  • Xtreme Derp

    Top pic looks like concept art, bottom pic is from the official teaser trailer.

  • Aria68

    Downgrade, CONFIRMED!

    • Hans Wurst

      It is so stupid to cry downgrade when console versions almost always were obviously downgraded from the PC versions!

  • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

    So Guiseppe, think you can give us a hint of what the map and health bar and all on the bottom corners look like since you presumably know what they look like? or you can’t?

  • DarkLegacy

    Screenshot looks cool

  • Negi Springfield

    Knowing Ubisoft , I`m expecting they`ll do a down-grade.

    • Hans Wurst

      The so called downgrade is what naturally happens if you try to port it to a clearly inferior platform like the consoles, so why is everyone so surprised lately. Hilarious

      • fasterr5

        PC actually gets the port.

      • Bilal Prince- Ali

        you’ve commented 3 times already about Consoles being inferior on this post lool.. stop defending PC soo much nobody even cares! plus like @fasterr5:disqus said.. PC actually get the ports! -__-

        • Nikos Galitis

          still you cant deny that PC always was, is and will forever be better than all consoles

          • Bilal Prince- Ali

            theres tooo many factors to take into account for you to say that.. but over all Consoles are better… the ONLY 2 definite things PC has over consoles are Graphics/performance & community… but for everything else Consoles wins.

  • Nadjib Milanesta

    downgrade incoming

  • fasterr5

    I saw PS4 footage of Watch Dogs, I have no idea why people are crying downgrades when the game still looks fantastic.

  • George

    It says the teaser trailer was ingame footage, cutscenes perhaps but cutscenes are rarely 100x better than ingame art.


    same person uploaded a soundtrack from the game, still not confirmed if true but the look of it seems legit to me here is the link

  • sluntchop

    This is obviously painted concept art. Awesome art, but def not a screenshot.
