This October's open-world game Assassin's Creed Unity takes "full advantage" of the power of the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, so much so that the Paris-set game is considered to be somewhat of a "new beginning" for the series. That's according to Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot who told the Ubisoft Blog that people are going to be blown away by what they see in the game.

"It's a game that takes full advantage of the new gen," Guillemot said. "It's really a good demonstration of what those machines can do. And people are amazed. They didn't expect those machines to deliver that level of graphics and animation quality, the depth of the number of people that can move in the environment, and so on. It's helping the brand to have a new beginning with totally different possibilities."

Assassin's Creed Unity is not the only highly anticipated upcoming game that promises to take "full advantage" of the Xbox One and PS4 hardware. Just last week, Sledgehammer Games said something similar about Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, explaining that the game's three-year development cycle allowed the studio to make the most out of the new hardware.

Gamers don't have much longer to play both games, as Assassin's Creed Unity launches on October 28, with Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare releasing a week later on November 4.
