Assassin's Creed 2014 to be set in Paris on Xbox One and PS4, leaked screenshots suggest
Reports suggest this year's Assassin's Creed Unity will feature different games on Xbox One/PS4 and Xbox 360/PS3.
This year's Assassin's Creed will be set in 18th century Paris, leaked images sent to Kotaku suggest.
The Parisien screenshots, obtained from an anonymous source from an early-in-development version of the game, show Notre Dame and the Seine river. The game is dubbed Unity, though it is not clear if this is the actual title or a codename.
Previous rumours have said that this year's Assassin's Creed will take place during the French Revolution and feature a new protagonist named Arno.
The screenshots also show buttons mapped to 'parkour up' and 'parkour down', which is said to be a new feature to be introduced this year.
Reports also suggest that there will be different version of Assassin's Creed this year for both current-gen--Xbox One and PS4--and last-gen machines. If true, it would mean that this year's Assassin's Creed would not be designed as a cross-generational title like last year's Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag. There's certainly precedent: Ubisoft did a similar thing with Splinter Cell: Double Agent, which launched towards the start of the last generation.
There were no rumblings about the possibility of a Wii U version.
Ubisoft has said that the most commonly-requested settings for a new Assassin's Creed are World War II, feudal Japan, and Ancient Egypt. Ubisoft said in February that Assassin's Creed IV had shipped 10 million copies.
