Assassin’s Creed Unity Release: 5 Things You Need to Know

The Assassin’s Creed Unity Release might be one of the most anticipated versions of Assassin’s Creed yet, with a focus on the Xbox One and PS4 and an exciting new setting that should leverage the power of the new consoles.

By focusing on Assassin’s Creed Unity for the PS4 and Xbox One, the developer can ditch the limitations of the older consoles to deliver an experience that feels more like the game we wanted last year.


Add in the option to free roam a high-detailed Paris France with your team of Assassin’s and you have a lot to be excited about. For users without a new console, there is a new Assassin’s Creed Rogue release bringing an updated, but different game to the PS3 and Xbox 360.

Assassin’s Creed Unity is $59.99 at Amazon, with special editions  jumping the price up to $129 with added items.
