Assassin's Creed: Unity is the perfect jumping on point for new players

Format:
Assassin's Creed: Unity will mark a fresh storyline that players old and new can experience without needing to have memorised details from the earlier titles

Release Date: 10/07/2014

The upcoming Assassin's Creed: Unity will officially be the eighth game in the series (if you count Vita spin-off Liberation) and given that the early games involved an often complex meta-plot about Templars and Assassin's in the modern day, all tied together by the recurring character of Desmond Miles, some players may have felt intimidated about jumping on board the series.

Now, Ubisoft has revealed that it's aware of that hurdle, and that new game Assassin's Creed: Unity will mark a fresh storyline that players old and new can experience without needing to have memorised details from the earlier titles.

"It's a new start, it's a new narrative start," creative director Alex Amancio has told Examiner.com. "That is symbolized by a completely new context for the present day. You've seen a little bit of an evolution with Black Flag, [but] we're not going to do the same thing."

In Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, the game's modern day segments took place in the offices of Abstergo, where researchers were using the time travelling Animus technology to create entertainment products. It sounds as if even that setting has been ditched, allowing the developers to reintroduce the core ideas of the series from scratch.

"What we're doing with Unity is really the beginning [of] this new cycle of Assassin's Creed games," Amancio said. "Because it's new, we can actually explain it properly because nobody is going to feel like it's redundant. I would say that Assassin's Creed Unity is the best entry point for the franchise since [the first Assassin's Creed]."

Assassin's Creed: Unity is set during the French Revolution and will feature campaign co-op play for the first time. It's out for PS4, Xbox One and PC on October 28th.
