Top 9 cities in the Assassin’s Creed games


The Assassin’s Creed games have taken place in some beautiful cities, no doubt. From Assassin’s Creed Unity’s Paris and its massive crowds to Assassin’s Creed II’s Florence and its Renaissance charm, the cities have been as important to Ubisoft’s games as the characters to date. So without further ado, here follows a list of the top 9 cities in the Assassin’s Creed games to date.

1. Paris (Assassin’s Creed Unity)

After the high-seas adventure Black Flag was, Unity took the series back to its urban roots. This game is set in 18th century Paris in the middle of the French Revolution, and was widely dissed by gamers back in 2014. This was due to it shipping with some game-breaking glitches. Actually, the game had more bugs than an abandoned cellar, but thankfully Ubisoft has solved most of the game’s problems now and Unity is perfectly playable nowadays.

Which is a good thing really as this is a pretty great Parisian adventure, even if its story is not a patch on Ezio’s tale on Assassin’s Creed II. And to be honest, protagonist Arno is not the sort of guy who lights up a party either. But Unity does boast incredible graphics, and arguably Paris has never looked this beautiful in game. Plus, the series’ trademark assassinations, stealth and climbing are all present and correct, meaning this is one of the best Assassin’s Creed games out there right now.

Why we loved Assassin’s Creed Unity’s Paris: The City of Light was beautifully detailed in this game, but there were also more people roaming in it than in every other Assassin’s Creed game combined… Also, buildings like Notre Dame are some of the most detailed ever in an Assassin’s Creed game.
