The Paris of Assassin’s Creed: Unity is the biggest single map the franchise has ever seen.
Assassin’s Creed: Unity has just one city – Paris – but that city is three times as large as all the land manss in Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag combined, Ubisoft has revealed.
The detail comes via one of Assassin’s Creed: Unity’s level design directors, unfortunately introduced only as “Nick” in a GeekyCastillo video interview from San Diego Comic Con.
The dev said you can probably power through the core campaign in 15 to 20 hours, but that with the franchise’s famous side content there’s about 100 hours of content in Paris.
Despite this increase in scale, the dev said there will be no load times before and after cut scenes. Thanks, next-gen.
You can watch the interview in full below, which also includes brief footage of Ubisoft’s amazing SDCC Assassin’s Creed promo event.
Assassin’s Creed: Unity releases at the end of October on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. We’re still waiting for conformation on Assassin’s Creed: Comet, the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 release.
