201403AC-Unity-Announce.jpg

 

As some of you may know one of the two Assassin's Creed installments is due to come out during the Holidays of 2014. One of the games, Assassin's Creed Unity (5) will be for the current generation (PS4 & XB1) and the other one is unannounced at the moment. There is speculation that the other game will be for the previous generation (PS3 & 360) and will make the crossover as a HD version as Assassin's Creed Liberation did this past year.

 

Time for the big scoop!

 

Assassin's Creed 5 - Assassin's Creed Unity

 

Theorized Synopsis

 

The storyline is planned to take place in 18th century France, assumed during and post revolution. The French Revolution takes place between 1789-1799. During this period in France, the monarchy and Church showed a decline of power as nationalism and democracy grew. I think the 10 years of the revolution is too short, they might skip over some of the events listed below and include the Napoleonic Era in France.

 

Some major events that I think might take place in the game are:

  • National Assembly (1789)
  • Storming of the Bastille (July 14 1789)
  • Drafting and completion of the Constitution
  • Women's March on Versailles (October 5 1789)
  • Revolution within the Church
  • Monarch flee to Varennes
  • Execution of Louis XVI (16th)
  • War in Vendee (1793)

 

Protagonist Analysis

 

According to KOTAKU the protagonist is named Arno. From the images and video that are online it is evident that the protagonist is a male.

 

Assassin Attire Analysis

 

The protagonist is not wearing the traditional white assassin's outfit, this might be due to blending in more. It might be due to blending in with French Revolutionary Soldiers, or it might be a homage to him serving in the army. He has the traditional tied red sash across the waste. He has the usual sword and now pistol. He does not see to have hidden blades in any pictures or in the video, but this might be early on in the game and he has not earned them yet.

 

Video Rewind

 

 

0:00-0:04 - PEGI 18

0:05-0:07 - States "The Following Is Alpha Game Footage"

0:08-0:15 - Ubisoft logo

0:15-0:19 - States that this will be a next gen only game.

0:19-0:26 - Indoor of what looks like a noble person's house

0:26-0:37 - Street view of Paris, you can see the next gen engine at work with the wind moving floating debris, also the reflection of store windows. Also the classic climb features from all the previous games are back

0:37-0:44 - View of old climb features, since the buildings are old world compared to AC3 and AC4 the climb features will resemble more to AC1 and AC2 Trilogy.

0:44-0:47 - You can see the protagonist on the build to the right, and Notre Dame comes into view. The buildings look a lot more to scale like they did in AC1 and AC2

0:47-0:50 - Protagonist is holding a locket or a pocket watch. (this could relate to his back story of him losing a loved one, most likely a women because the role of women in society was on the rise and being challenged. You can see on his arms that there are no hidden blades.

0:50-0:54 - Protagonist is looking down into the square in front of Notre Dame, where the guillotine is set up from someone's execution. You can also see he is equipped with a sword and pistol once again.

0:54-1:00 - guillotine comes into view and drops down.

1:00-1:09 - Title of the game (Assassin's Cree Unity) and release date (Available Holiday 2014)

  • This looks like the new villa feature which is reportedly in the game

 

What are your thoughts on the upcoming game and location/story?

I'm glad they're finally doing the French Revolution. It might even pull me back into the games after I quit the series completely after AC:III (which I'm sure you know I hated). Would have to catch up and finish 4, but I guess I'm not under a time limit.

 

Hopefully the villa building/expansion  is more like AC2 than what they've been doing recently.

 

Arno is an interesting name because it's not French.

Yeah I really hope the new villa feature is like AC2, but incorporates the BH format where you can buy items for the shops. If I remember correctly in AC2 when you upgraded shops in the Villa you could not purchase anything from them.

 

So I did some research on Arno and this what I found:

 

The meaning of the name Arno is Eagle (not surprising and expected)

The origin of the name Arno is German (this can also be explained because during the Medieval Period the Franks (a germanic tribe) occupied France.

Notes: Also a river in Italy. (this made me wonder..if there might be a connection to Ezio? and so I found...)

 

Ezio and Sofia married in Venice. They had a daughter, Flavia, in May 1513, and a son, Marcello, in October 1514. By 1524, a retired Ezio lived with his family in a villa in the Tuscan countryside. There, he tended to a vineyard, and often spent time in his study, writing his memoirs

 

The Arno is a river in the Tuscany region of Italy

 

His attire looks very similar in colour and style to Ezio's from Revelations

 

Perhaps this is a decendant of Ezio, it wouldn't be a strech, considering Italy is near France.
