Assassin's Creed Unity Online Video Leaks New Info & Mechanics

A rough video showing the framework of Assassin's Creed Unity's online mode has leaked revealing some new features.

Curiously there isn't a single French accent, it's all a bit Ye Olde English meets Game Of Thrones. And people still go mad the second you start climbing stuff.

The low quality video looks like it was streamed judging from the artefacting and it's a fairly bare bones version of the mechanics but it does show some new features. The video's almost certain to get yanked so here's some GIFs outlining the key bits and pieces.

There's a huge amount of customisation and a range of other assassin outfits including Altiar, Ezio, Hatham, Edward and Connor. There's something called 'Arno's 'fearless outfit'', characters called Thomas de Carnillion and Bellec, a 'McFarlane Master Assassin Outift', plus Shay's Templar outfit from Assassin's Creed: Rogue.

It also looks like the ability to disguise yourself in crowds now continues when you leave the group. Although given the early development stage of what we're seeing here it could just be an oversight.

There are also co-op boosters, one of which is described as 'premium'.
