Assassin's Creed Unity Video Preview: Now With Mike's Voice

Assassin's Creed Unity Video Preview: Now With Mike's Voice

Here's a look at some direct-feed footage of Assassin's Creed Unity, backed by Mike's dulcet tones.

On Monday, I posted my monster preview of Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed Unity. That came to over 3,000 words on everything I experienced during my 5 hour playthough of Sequences 3 and 4 in the game.

"Assassin's Creed Unity may be the latest entry in the franchise, but for the lead team at Ubisoft Montreal, it's a chance to start over again," I wrote in the preview. "Seven years, seven games; all building from a common core established in the first Assassin's Creed. Is what I saw as smooth or polished as last year's Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag? No. Black Flag was the endgame of seven years of annual development. I found Black Flag to be nearly perfect. In contrast, Assassin's Creed Unity has some rough edges."

But who needs words when you have video? Now you get to see part of what I played, while listening to me talk about the same stuff in the preview.

All of this footage was sent to us by Ubisoft and is recorded directly from the Xbox One version. That means you get to see the same action and system performance that I saw when I played the game in person. Is 900p and 30fps good enough for you? Is Parkour Down and a new stealth system enough to bring you back to Assassin's Creed? If you have any questions, I can answer them in the comments below.

Hopefully, my voice doesn't make you want to stab anyone.
Full disclosure: We at USgamer are poor, so Ubisoft covered my travel arrangements to the event. Assassin's Creed Unity is coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on November 11, 2014.

M.H. Williams is new to the journalism game, but he's been a gamer since the NES first graced American shores. Third-person action-adventure games are his personal poison: Uncharted, Infamous, and Assassin's Creed just to name a few. If you see him around a convention, he's not hard to spot: Black guy, glasses, and a tie.
