UbiLeaks: Far Cry 4 & Assassin's Creed 5 Revealed

Rumour and speculation

I am a trusting person, which us why I often gather groups of stranger together and fall backwards into their arms. It's something to do while my pies cool on my windowsill. But I also live in London, so today I've lost three pies and broken two vertebrae. Send help! It hasn't damaged my trust, though, so I'm going to take Eurogamer at their word that they're sure that Far Cry 4 is soon to be announced. I don't think it's any stretch to assume that it would be coming, but the setting promises mountains and elephants.

And - this just in - there's a first, rather shiny trailer for the next Assassin's Creed game, subtitled 'Unity' and which appears to be set during the French Revolution.

According to Eurogamer and others, Far Cry 4 is set in the Himalayas. It will have rideable elephants, so anything else is secondary. I hope there's a controllable trunk, and that you can use it to gather snowballs and fire them at Yetis. The rest is said to be based mostly on Far Cry 3, with outposts and an open-world to conquer. There's more to be heard at this coming E3.

Kotaku, the game

Kotaku is sure it has seen early shots of Assassin's Creed: Unity. Hey, it's a dude in a cloak running around a place, and that place is Paris and that dude is called 'Arno'. Anything I could add would only be speculation, and I am not a high-paid analyst.

Except: all of a sudden there's a video of the new AC, which Ubisoft unexpectedly put out today in response to the leaks.. Not a lot to it, but it comes with a confirmation from Ubisoft that a 'next-gen' Asscreed is indeed inbound:

Mid-revolution France, then? Guillotinetastic. It's due on PC and and the newer consoles towards the end of the year. Odds on a PC delay? No bookie would take your bet, frankly.
