Assassin’s Creed 5 Unity Release: New Gameplay Trailer, E3 Demos More of the Game; No Comet

Assassin’s Creed 5, also known as Assassin’s Creed Unity, is showcased further in a new gameplay trailer.

Ubisoft released a short trailer when it officially announced the game, but that one didn’t show any gameplay trailer.

The new trailer now shows players more of what the next-gen game will look like.

The game will be released for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and is set in Revolutionary France. The release date hasn’t been announced but will reportedly be in November.

Alex Amancio, creative director for Ubisoft, said during E3 that Unity is about “carving your own unique path through a huge, immerse city filled with countless stories, activities, and awards.”

He also said that the company has redesigned the gameplay considerably from previous versions.

Players will be able to join up to three other players to engage in the main story. It’s not clear yet whether the entire campaign will be available in this multiplayer.

The game is being developed by 10 different Ubisoft studios, Ubisoft said in a financial presentation.

Ubisoft Montreal is the lead developer but is joined by Ubisoft studios in Toronto, Quebec, Annecy, Singapore, Shanghai, Chengdu, Kiev, Montpellier, and Bucharest.

Annecy and Bucharest helped develop multiplayer content for other AC games in the past, while Quebec and Singapore have also helped with the franchise.

The company said that Unity will have “amazing next gen graphics.”

Meanwhile, another Assassin’s Creed game is reportedly being developed for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, titled Comet.

The financial presentation didn’t include any information about Comet.

Ubisoft recently revealed other new games at E3, including Far Cry 4, The Division, and Rainbow Six Siege.
