This third-person action game continues the history-spanning story of the Assassins, enacting a secret war through time. The action takes place in Paris in 1789. The French Revolution is turning the jewel of Europe into a chaotic bloodbath as the peasants rise up and slay the aristocracy. You play as Arno, whose pursuit of the truth behind the Revolution leads to danger and death. The open-world gameplay, parkour, abundant side missions, and complicated plot the series is known for are represented here, but this time you'll be able to play missions in online co-op! Combat has been rebuilt from previous games to reflect the sword fighting of the time, and Unity features a new, killer weapon: the Phantom Blade works like a crossbow and fires a deadly projectile across great distances.
