'Assassin's Creed Unity' News: New Trailer Showcases Game's Captivating Open World Gameplay [WATCH]
A new trailer for "Assassin's Creed Unity" was released on Thursday showcasing the game's seemingly endless open world activities. The game's creative director, Alex Amancio, spends the video discussing the various activities that players can participate in like murder investigations and treasure hunts.
Players will also be able to perform co-op heist missions, check out the Cafe Theatre and also customize their character in the sprawling city of Paris.
Watch the trailer below:
Amancio recently had to explain why the game used British accents in an Ubisoft blog. Amancio explained that it wouldn't make sense to use French accents because Animus, a genetic memory machine, is retelling the story in English.
"The idea is that the Animus is translating everything into the language you’re playing in. That’s why, since you’re an Anglophone, you’re hearing all the dialogue and cinematics in English," Amancio said. "It would really make no sense for there to be a French accent because that would mean that this French character is trying to address you in accented English. Everyone in the game is not trying to speak English for your benefit.”
Amancio also mentioned that non-playable characters will all be speaking French once the game is released.
"The only lines that are going to be translated into English are gameplay-related elements that we need to convey to the player." he said. “Those parts will be in English. Everything else is in French. You’ll really have the immersion of walking around in Paris and hearing everyone speaking French.”
Lastly, Amancio said that the decision to use French accents was an aesthetic decision that should help enhance the game.
"It’s an artistic choice,” he said. “It’s a new generation and the story is a little bit more serious, and having everyone speak in a thick French accent would detract a lot from the experience.”
"Unity" launches Nov. 11 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
