3 reasons to play Assassin's Creed Unity

Many fans are skeptical of Assassins Creed Unity, criticizing that it will just be another cookie cutter Assassins Creed game. Many fans ask, where does the franchise have left to go after essentially remaking the same game 6 times over? Well after speaking with Alexandre Amancio at Ubisoft's Preview Event in NYC, I can promise you this game will exceed all your expectations.

With the announcement that the game will be coming out on November 11, Prima Games has come up with a list of 5 reasons to play Assassin's Creed Unity. Here's three:

Four-Player Co-Op Mode

Great games are great games, but any time you can share that experience with your friends they reach a whole new level. With Assassin's Creed: Unity, you and three friends can team up to tackle some of the game's co-op missions. These adventures will work alongside the game's campaign, and have been designed for players to work with one another as a team to take down targets throughout the city. What's better than one deadly assassin? Four... of course.

Arno + Phantom Blade

The protagonist in Assassin's Creed: Unity will be Arno Dorian, a native Frenchman who was born in Versailles to an assassin father. When his father is killed, Arno is adopted by a man who holds a senior position within the Templar Order. After his adopted father also dies, Arno, armed with his all-new Phantom Blade, a hidden weapon with crossbow capabilities, sets out on a quest for redemption. For those that are worried Arno is all business and no pleasure, he will indeed have a Templar love interest named Elise De LaSerre, who just so happens to be the daughter of the man who adopted him.

Parkour + Stealth + Combat

Stories can make and break games, but gameplay is just as valuable, if not more so. In Assassin's Creed: Unity, the new motion control parkour system will allow for free running up, across and even down walls. The stealth and combat systems have also seen some improvements, with combat said to be more fluid and engaging, while stealth mode will allow for things such as crowd manipulation and features a new cover system. In gamer terms, this means more nifty ways to kill your enemies. We're cool with that.
