With all the focus on the multiplayer side of Assassin's Creed Unity it was easy to forget that there is an overarching story for the game. What kind of Assassin's Creed game would it be if Ubisoft didn't expand on the modern world story as well as the story as to why Arno is murdering across the French Revolution? If it didn't I think it would be the end of the franchise that has kept the developer and publisher burning money to light their cigars or whatever other inane rich person stereotype we can tag on to them. Like it or not, Assassin's Creed Unity is going to make them a lot of money.
Back on the Assassin's Creed Unity task at hand here.
For those who want more out of Assassin's Creed Unity than just a whole lot of new ways to play with all of your friends, I present to you the official story trailer for Assassin's Creed Unity. Let's have a look.
So we have love, betrayal, murder, and all the great things that normally get mixed into Assassin's Creed title are there for Assassin's Creed Unity. Not too big of a surprise as it has been a winning combination for stories over the years and not just in this franchise. For once I would love to see a story for Assassin's Creed where the lead character wasn't driven by revenge or honor but driven by just the want to end the lives of perceived evil though. I know we won't see that in Assassin's Creed Unity but it would be a fun twist for the franchise just as Assassin's Creed Rogue is aiming to try.
Could you imagine having a protagonist that turns Assassin just because of something like Dexter? The drive to end lives and nothing more but at least it is guided in a positive direction. I guess that wouldn't really be an Assassin's Creed-esque title but it would add a great shake up to the overall story of the franchise. Maybe there will be some allusions to someone like that in Assassin's Creed Unity as it looks to have a deeper look at their culture than any other title to date. That would be interesting no?
