Assassin's Creed: Unity Confirmed for PS4, Xbox One, and PC

Assassin's Creed: Unity Confirmed for PS4, Xbox One, and PC

The French Revolution-focused Unity is indeed the AC coming to new-gen consoles this holiday.

After the leak earlier this week, Ubisoft has decided to officially announce Assassin's Creed: Unity for Xbox One, PS4, and PC. According to Ubisoft, the trailer shows alpha in-game footage of Unity. As the leak stated, the game does indeed take place during the French Revolution. Rumors says Unity will be dropping the competitive multiplayer mode for 4-player cooperative play.

"We have been working on the new Assassin's Creed for more than three years, and wanted to find the perfect time to give you an early taste of the game," said Ubisoft in its announcement. "Apparently though, the Templar Order was hungry to know more right now. To this, we say 'Qu'ils mangent de la brioche!' ('Let them eat cake!'). Help yourself to a serving of the first official footage from the next-gen only Assassin's Creed Unity. Stay tuned - we'll have many more exciting details for you in the future."

This announcement also lends credence to the stacking rumors that we're getting a second Assassin's Creed game for Xbox 360, PlayStation, and hopefully Wii U this year. I'm guessing that game, code-named "Comet", will take place in Russia during the Tunguska comet event in 1908. That means the game could feature Nikolai Orelov, the star of the Assassin's Creed: The Fall and Assassin's Creed: the Chain graphic novels. In fact, the Tunguska event was featured in the The Chain series.

We'll know more when Ubisoft releases more information.
