Assassin's Creed: Unity is bigger that the entirety of Assassin's Creed III's Frontier
Ubisoft has given some indication of the sheer scale of their recreation of Revolutionary-era Paris in Assassin's Creed: Unity.
Speaking on the game in a new making-of video creative director Alex Amancio explained that the game's visuals have “ten times more animation, ten times more polygons, and ten times the number of pixels in our texture.”
This is all courtesy of the processing power of the new generation of console hardware which allow the team to create deeper and more detailed and realistic environments. Unity takes the series back to its routes focusing on verticality in an urban environment.
The major difference is that this version of Paris is larger than the whole Frontier in Assassin's Creed III. Assassin's Creed: Unity is heading to PC, PS4 and Xbox One on October the 28th.
