Ubisoft explains why their version of Paris is so impressive.
Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag featured a massive world and given that it was a cross generation title, Ubisoft should be appluaded for their efforts. Now with Unity being developed on more powerful hardware, what kind world size can players expect? Will it be bigger than the whole of Black Flag [land and sea] combined?
“First of all, in terms of scale if you combine the entire playable landmass of Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag, you’d have a smaller surface than the city of Paris in ACU. Secondly, Assassin’s Creed Unity is not only big in terms of scale put also in terms of depth. To this end, the player will be able to explore a lot of interiors in this multi-layered city of Paris (houses, sewers, landmarks, etc),” a Ubisoft executive said to GamingBolt.
“All in all, the player will be able to explore hundreds of different interiors in Paris. And those interiors will not be empty spaces; they will be full of characters, rewards, stories, social hubs, merchants and what we call Social Clubs. There are also monuments, that can be visited and that have been faithfully realized. It’s actually quite close to the actual scale – that’s why our version of Paris is so impressive. Every landmark in the game stands out even more than in previous AC games, and it feels more real than ever before,” he further continued.
“Finally, we created by far the biggest and the deepest city we have ever made and this is something that we are really proud of!”
