Roll up, roll up, for a great big steaming pile of leaks fresh from the rumour mill. Kotaku, as per usual, have thrown an absolute sizzler onto the flames by revealing some leaked screenshots of what appears to be this year's Assassin's Creed game. Sources claim that Assassin's Creed: Unity (probably a working title) is set during the French revolution and features a retooled parkour system, starring an assassin called Arno.
You can view Kotaku's screenshots through the link, which definitely appear to be based on a prototype Assassin's Creed build, with familiar French landmarks such as the Palace Of Versailles and Notre Dame clearly visible. Speaking of clearly visible, Unity seems set to overhaul traversal, as evidenced by the 'Parkour up' and 'Parkour down' buttons in the image above.
Last-gen consoles will reportedly receive their very own game, currently codenamed 'Comet.'
So, if true, what do you make of the French Revolution setting? Would you have preferred Japan or China? Should the series take a break for a year? Let us know in the comments.
