In most Assassin’s Creed games, the art of killing while remaining hidden is of utmost importance. That pretty much goes out the window in this latest trailer where lead protagonist Arno ends his foes in the most public way possible. I guess if you’re assassinating during the middle of the French Revolution you don’t exactly need to be sneaky.
What caught my eye where the new parkour moves employed by Arno. This is the most flexible we’ve seen an assassin be in this series. He was able to quickly shimmy sideways and turn while in mid-air for example. Combat seems to have gotten some new animations too. We see a quick scene of Arno kicking an enemy’s gun away while doing some of the more traditional attacks. All of this is CG of course and may not be in the final game but it would be nice if some of this stuff made it over.
Assassin’s Creed: Unity will be released for the PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on October 28th.
