What do we want!? ORIGINALITY! When will we get it!? NOT ANY TIME SOON!
Ubisoft have revealed their all new Assassin’s Creed Unity Co-op Heist Mission demo with narration by Alex, the creative director on the game. Players must infiltrate and steal treasure from the enemy without ever being seen, making for some interesting stealth sections.
This video and the gameplay therein is well constructed and well choreographed, it shows off the games elements and the mechanics admirably whilst really capturing the feel of a fast moving heist. Using synchronised assassination techniques and smoke bombs to quickly clear rooms or obscure the enemy line of sight is a twist on the formula that we normally don’t see. Players generally completely ignore the smoke bomb and rely on their combat prowess to sort out any stick situations, but forcing them to remain hidden and quiet is clever.
Assassin’s Creed Unity Heist missions are a separate set of missions, completely different from those of the brotherhood missions.
