The makers of Assassin’s Creed Unity, Ubisoft has gone a step ahead to ensure that gamers find themselves engaged within the content of their virtual world.
They have meticulously created a complete Google styled street view map of Paris. And, the surprising addition is that it resembles the city during the 18th century with authentic places and locations that were part of the locale during the period.
An Interactive Website
Interactive content always has an upper hand when it comes to wooing people into checking it out. Ubisoft has ideally used the marketing strategy by creating a website that shows off multiple aspects of the Assassin’s Creed Unity universe. It offers a virtual tour of Paris and the interesting addition is that there’s a complete sheet of historical information as well as facts related to the Capital city. While it is part of their promotional campaign, it is a great way to know historical events and be submerged into the world in a more interactive way.
The new website which is live now offers you a 360 degree view of the Paris city which is very similar to how Google allows you to view streets. Instead of walking as an Assassin, you will be able to move around it by using your camera. The roads and buildings are dotted with icons that provide you in-depth details about those places in the eighteenth century. The story of Unity takes place in the same time and in the city during the historically popular event, the French revolution.
Ubisoft has created the website to allow players to discover hotspots, know more about hidden Unity artwork, Easter Eggs and exclusive YouTube videos that can be found only by exploring the map. It not only ends by simply roaming the city but there are some RPG elements as well where you will be rewarded each time you successfully complete a specific percentage of your exploration. Andy Serkis, the Gollum actor will also provide a voice over at specific occasions when you roam the map and give you suggestions. It is known as the Project Window which can be found in the official Unity website.
Assassin’s Creed Unity launches on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on November 11. It was originally scheduled for an October release but was later postponed and is now going to launch along with Assassin’s Creed Rogue.
