Report: Leaked gameplay shows off new Assassin’s Creed Unity challenge mode

Posted on August 26, 2014 AT 03:12am

New gameplay footage of Assassin’s Creed Unity has been posted online, revealing a new time-based platforming challenge mode called “Rifts.”

The mode sees players racing around an area collecting data in as quick a time as possible, with an added objective of saving a fellow assassin who is trapped in the simulation. It appears that players will also be able to race against other player’s ghosts to try and beat their time.

The footage was posted by a user on Reddit who claims to be a developmental build tester for Ubisoft—which has apparently been verified by Reddit mods. The user described Rifts as follows:

“Your goal to is collect data on the map to find the location of a trapped assassin on the map. Data comes in three varieties. Static worth 10 points. Dynamic(read moving around the map) for 20 points, and encrypted(you have to stand year for a few seconds for it to be picked up) for 50 points.

“After collecting 300 the Assassin’s location is revealed. You are then provided a secondary goal of collecting 1000, which then rewards you bonus money etc.”

It also appears that some levels of Rifts will see players take control of past Assassin’s Creed characters, such as Altaïr, Ezio, Aveline, and more, in time periods other than the game’s main setting of French Revolution Paris.

Assassin’s Creed Unity is set to launch October 28 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
