Ubisoft announces Far Cry 4 and Assassins Creed Unity
Ubisoft detailed the games coming out this fiscal year. This is what they say: "The year’s performance will be led by five games – Assassin’s Creed Unity, Far Cry 4, Just Dance, The Crew and Watch Dogs” It is surprising that The Division is not on the list but it's still an impressive set of games. I am looking forward to Watch Dogs coming out at the end of the month. Assassins Creed Unity is set in the French Revolution and it's for the ps4, xbox one and PC. That is about all they have shared about that game. Ubisoft also said they will be releasing an Assassins Creed just for the ps3 and 360 in the fall. I am hoping that Unity gets rid of the naval gameplay which I believe it will. Don't get me wrong it is fun and excellent gameplay but it gets repetitive. I want something new for Unity but at the same time I want it to go back to it's roots of AC2. The biggest thing I am looking for is better stealth mechanics which have been lacking in past titles. Far Cry 3 was one of my favorite games. I will definitely be looking out for the 4th installment. It is set in Kyrat, an untamed region ruled by a self appointed king. Ubisoft says: "But don’t be lulled into a false sense of security by the achingly beautiful views; Kyrat is a wild land full of perils. Once again, players will be able to craft their own stories as they travel through this exotic open world teeming with wildlife – using their wits along with an assortment of powerful weapons and diverse vehicles." Far Cry 4 will be coming to every system and I wouldn't be surprised if we saw something at E3.
