Assassins Creed: Unity vs. Rogue - Gamescom 2014

There are two Assassin's Creed games coming out this year and Danny and Cam have seen them both at Gamescom 2014 but the question remains, which one is better?

unity is true next gen assassin creed

- stunning graphics

- revised game-play mechanics

- slightly difference visual art

it would seems UBISOFT going for a refreshing take on the series

but rouge just seems AC IV with tweaks and a different rapper. so far the only slight edge it has over UNITY is the intriguing story. but who knows, only time will tell

Personally I feel like I'm gonna go with Unity, simply because I am a PC user.


Also Rogue looks more like an expansion pack of sorts for Black Flag (Which was also a great swashbuckling adventure), so I don't think that's something to really look forward to. If I would want oceanic combat and piracy and all that, I would go with Black Flag.


Overall, Unity takes the spotlight

Unity is clearly the best game coming out from this franchise. Unity Has Better mechanics, better graphics And I wasn't a big fan of pirates based games so is great to see that AC is coming back to basics with a big city and hopefully great story-telling.

getting both... I love everything AC and I don't care about having a AC every year, what wrong with having a great game once a year

The Irish voice of the  AC Rogue game will be annoying, skipping it

Rogue seems interesting because you're playing as a Templar, which reverses the experience, as you can take human shields and assassins are hunting you while you're hunting them. However, it doesn't hold a candle to Unity. Unity is just plain better and everyone can see it. Now you may like the era in Rogue better than the French Revolution, but the gameplay mechanics, graphics, and customization are far evolved in Unity, which makes the Assassin's Creed experience in said game more of an appealing draw than Rogue's, in my opinion.

Well i was never into Pirates or the French Revolution. I however love the Revolutionary and French Indian War Eras, so Rogue definitely looks interesting (another reason im glad i stuck with 360).

I thought Assassins Creed 3 could have done better with character customization and at least giving you a chance to fight those epic Bunker Hill and other battles without having to "sneak" thru them stabbing people in the back or otherwise stay away from the Lines. Just give me a musket, a Uniform, and put me out on the Line.  

And that ridiculous Hood has to go. Replace it with a Tricorne Hat or something. In the Medieval or Renaissance Era's yes, but looking like a  Marvel Comic Superhero during the Colonial Era didn't work.  Maybe the fact he's now a Templar will fix that.

Anyway, we'll see but its looking good

Ugh...Eagle Vision...the doom mechanic that has poisoned a majority of games now.

Screw being a pirate in America! lololololol Rogue is so strange. Unity looks g though, and I'm hopeful if Danny's hopeful.

For me, Unity is the clear winner. In fact, the first time I looked at Rogue's gameplay, I immediately threw it out of my to-be-bought games list. I enjoyed the sailing and pirate-y mass murdering in Black Flag, but its an experience I don't want to be repeating again and again. On the other hand, Unity looks fresh with its revamped combat, next-gen graphics, improved parkour and of course, Paris!

Three enemies means you're in trouble?  Wow, maybe they really are changing things up a lot.

Rogue looks like a good deal. For 20 dollars

Rogue looks exactly like BF with a couple of annoying additions imo. Unity looks cool though, intrigued to find out more. Like for example are you able to free-aim with your pistol in Unity?

I don't think his name could be any more Irish. But I hope rouge makes its way to next gen. I hope and feel that around summer time or E3 2015 Ubisoft would announce Rouge coming to next gen.

@kalgert I will probably end up playing both on PC... I'll wait for sales though & play them a few months apart.

@ralejandro23 AC4 combat is terrible you only have swords animation. AC 3 had clubs, tomahawk, swords, etc. even the animation for killing two enemies was cool in AC3 but rarely did this happen in AC4. although the naval stuff is better everything else is shy of revolutionary fights, story, hunting, variation, characters. most fragments in AC4 you had to collect on uncharted islands where exactly the same location as the ones you have collected before clearly they were just trying to add more for you to collect without justifying if it is at all necessary.

@daBrokenFace at least it is better than flawless English dialect of Frenchies, from what I remember the French despise the English. will still play this one

@chieflion We're not even a pirate here, just some macho Irish dude who has super-human killing skills and a boat, hired by people rich enough to let us play with prototype toys for free, hunting for revenge!

Yes, its an interesting story, and I would have played it if the environment and gameplay were attractive.

@justbefahad don't encourage these guys, don't vote or show opinions between two ACs. they are two different games at two different standards with two different talent pool of developers and execs, budgeting and time. that's it! if AC fans start to choose between AC's then the nay-sayers have won, they are trying old tactics Divide-&-Conquer. But we must stay UNITED!

@hystavito Yeah, its a a welcome change. In fact, Alex Amancio said that you can handle 5 enemies at most at the same time, more than that and you're done for.

apparently revelations was only a vita title now it is everywhere, I am sure past Fall 2014 you will see it even on ps4 and xbox 360. If they are bold enough to release two games a year I bet they will try to squeeze as much cash from every console

@justbefahad @crusaderprophet I think what he wants to say it that people who like Assassin's Creed shouldn't fight about which Assassin's Creed to get because the people who hate Assassin's Creed will be like "See? We told you AC sucks!".


...Or something along those lines
