Believe it, Assassin’s Creed: Unity’s Paris is freaking massive

Assassin’s Creed: Unity is big, and Ubisoft has tried to explain just how large its new-gen representation of Paris really is.


It follows a Ubisoft’s rather weak attempt to explain why Assassin’s Creed: Unity doesn’t have playable females.

On the E3 2014 show floor, Ubisoft’s team told Kotaku that Unity’s depiction of Paris is larger than all of Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag’s landmass stuck together. Put it this way; the in-game version of Notre Dame cathedral is accurately scaled 1:1 when compared to the real thing.

Level designer Bruno Saint Andre explained to the site that a quarter of Unity’s buildings have interiors, and creative director Alex Amancio added that each of the Paris regions will feel more distinct than those in previous instalments.

Kotaku was also told that Unity won’t have PvP, its co-op missions can be played solo and are optional, while the game’s present-day sections will star “you,” whatever that means.
