Paris, 1789 - 1799
Paris has been recreated virtually 1:1.
The main protagonist is Arno Victor Dorian.
He is on a quest for redemption. Much like Ezio and Altair, Arno must make his way up through the ranks of the Assassin Brotherhood.
The traversal methods have changed slightly. You can now Parkour Up and Down. This gives you a large amount of control of where you are going at any given time. There are a . There has been a very strong stealth mechanic added to the game. Arno will now, when the Stealth button is hit, drop into a crouch and start moving a more slowly and far more quietly.
The Counter-Kill system has been removed. Enemies will finally attack you en mass. Their tactics will change based on the number of people present.
Crowds have become far more dynamic in this entry. Now, there can be crowds dense enough that you or your foes cannot push through them. The developers have said that the game can support around 5,000 individuals within a given area at a minimum.
The upgrade system has been completely revised. In addition to gathering materials to upgrade your weaponry, you will gain skill points for completing missions. Each will award some skill points which be used to improve abilities.
For the first time since Assassin's Creed Brotherhood, there is no competitive multiplayer. This has been replaced with the new Co-op Brotherhood Missions. These are group focused and can be completed by as many as 4 players.
The basic mission structure has seen revision as well. The missions are far more open ended now. Instead of just following a set of objectives you are free to complete the mission as you would desire to. You can tail a guard to learn where he is going. If spotted you will entire into a chase sequence. You then need to take him down and check his body to find a letter telling where the target was going and who they were meeting.
This game introduces the Brotherhood Missions. These allow up to 4 players to work together. These Co-op mission are begun in the various taverns across Paris. Anyone you know online will show as a ghostly player. You can then head over to them and send them a request to join them in their mission. There are virtually unlimited ways to tackle any given mission.
