Review: Assassin’s Creed Unity (PC)

Fatal Error: French Revolution simulation failed to load. Time anomaly detected. As you can see from the video, our Assassin ends up in World War 2 era Paris… quite a bit of time after the French Revolution. That’s because of a bug in the animus that [...]

Ubisoft has released a new Assassin’s Creed Unity “Experience” video, this one detailing some of the open world activities that you’ll be able to do outside of the campaign. These include murder mysteries, Paris Stories (which are revamped assassination missions), treasure hunts, and co-op Heists missions. Check it out in the video below.

I like the sound of the murder mysteries, and it’s about time they change up the [...]
