Assassin’s Creed Unity leaked screenshots

Everyone’s looking forward to Assassin’s Creed: unity, the next installment in the franchise. The internet is awash with gamers trying to find details of the upcoming game and it seems they may have found something. A YouTuber named  watchdogs xwk uploaded a video that showed a supposed screenshot from the new game. The video was then taken down by a copyright claim from Ubisoft, which has only added fuel to the fire.

Although the video was taken down, a Reddit user managed to get a screenshot and upload it online. He posted it on the Assassin’s Creed Facebook page Access the Animus where, oddly enough, a site admin user pointed out that the figure in the screenshot appeared to have Altair’s short-sword strapped over his back.

inFAMOUS sequels could be as varied as Assassin’s Creed

Last week inFAMOUS: Second Son was released exclusively on the PS4 and so far it has had great reviews. Ever since its debut on the PS3 back in 2009, the franchise has become a household name amongst gamers, as has its developer Sucker Punch.

Whilst speaking to OPM, Second Son director Nate Fox said he felt no shame in Sucker Punch being mainly known for inFAMOUS saying: “That’s a good curse to be saddled with. inFamous is a really broad concept – an everyday person gets powers and decides if they want to use them for good or evil. That could be anybody of any age, any gender, any time, any country. It’s as wide open as superhero fiction.”
