Assassin’s Creed becomes a new kind of gaming experience

Guns are firing, bombs are exploding and you are scaling the Eiffel Tower in the midst of World War II, shooting down Nazi flags, while across the city, citizens are being executed in the guillotine beside Notre Dame during the French Revolution. The city is full of battle and terror and a little bit of old world Parisian charm. Welcome to Assassin’s Creed Unity.

This new version of the video game favorite was recently featured in the ‘Total Art of Video Games’ exhibition in Paris earlier this month, debuting the re-invented game that features Revolutionary Paris, time travel and a whole lot of Parcour. Here, the city is divided into 7 different and autonomous regions, most notably Le Marais, Ile de Cité and Notre Dame. The single-player game follows the character Arno Dorian and offers the gamer a third-person open world exploration of the city where Assassins battle against the Revolutionary soldiers. It introduces revamped combat and can also become a multi-player version, up to four players to be exact.

What’s remarkable about the game is the fact that the player can immerse himself in the city- which took programmers years to accurately depict in the game. In fact, it took them a year and a half to just turn the front of Notre Dame into an animated version. Animators wanted the game and the imagery to be as exact as possible, to give the player a unique and historically accurate experience of Paris in the Revolutionary period. In addition, the gamer can also be transported through time and space; with a flick of the wrist, the gamer is suddenly dropped into Paris’ Belle Epoque or World War II.

The game is a way for the player to combine both fantasy and realism, propelling oneself into the city’s historic past. Most of what the player sees in the game has now been destroyed due to age and war. But the player gets to see what all facets of life were like back in Revolutionary Paris, including the people and the landscape. Who wouldn’t want to experience Paris back in the day?

A representation on The Cathedrals of Notre-dame in the “game” and in “real” life . The resemblance is bluffing, the game is so close to the reality that you can put both picture together and you won’t see the difference!

The Pantheon in real life compare to the one in the game,  we can see a lot of details and precise work on the monument.
