Ubisoft has spoken out about the sheer size Assassin’s Creed: Unity’s world, claiming that this is their most accurate location yet for an Assassin’s Creed title.

The 18th-century adventure set in Paris will have a city larger than the entirety of Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag’s landmass combined, with some parts of the city scaled 1:1 with their real life equivalents…

While the Assassin’s Creed series has always had to cut a few corners in the size of its worlds it appears this won’t be the case in Assassin’s Creed Unity, which Ubisoft claim will be similar in scale to the real city during the French Revolution.

Notre Dame in particular has been highlighted, appearing identical in scale to the real landmark. As well as this around a quarter of Assassin’s Creed Unity’s buildings now have fully explorable interiors, while the city itself has been divided up into varied and distinct suburbs.

It’s all sounding promising so far for Assassin’s Creed Unity, and we don’t have too much longer to wait. It’s out on October 28th for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

Are you worried this may be a case of quantity not quality?

Could AC: Unity be the best Assassin's Creed yet?

So, I guess you need a super CPU to run this game on ultra, because the AC franchise is known for its bad optimization...

Well, bigger than AC:IV's landmass combined. Quite a bit of that game was the ocean, as I'm sure you recall. And, sadly, the Eiffel Tower did not exist until the 1889 World Fair, where it was used as the entrance arch, so no tower. :'(

"around a quarter of Assassin’s Creed Unity’s buildings now have fully explorable interiors," This is the most intresting part for me. Now we can escape using streets, roofs AND interiors ;)

I think they mean it's going to have the largest CITY, AC4 almost had no cities or tall buildings at all, just oceans almost all of the time.

"Paris will have a city larger than the entirety of Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag’s LANDMASS combined" - so, the way I understand this, Oceans are excluded.

yep oceans are excluded, but now that I think about it AC4 didn't really have that much landmass, I mean most of those islands weren't expolrable and you couldn't really leave the towns (Havanna and it's walls) to explore islands.

any body ever thought if they did not include whole Carribean in ac4 left few parts in the north south east west direction because as far as i know carribean s huge so i think that telling ac unity map big than ac 4 map is justified .Peace.

the whole land mass in ACIV was really huge. To make one city was the size of three cities and all islands in-game (I think including ones you can't dock at) will be very tremendous :D Oh man we need cars not horses ^_^
