‘Assassin’s Creed Unity’ Controls Might Frustrate Fans Of The Series

Vincent Pontbriand, the senior producer of "Assassin's Creed Unity" warned fans of the "Assassin's Creed" (AC) franchise that they might get frustrated with the controls of Ubisoft's latest game, Video Gamer reported.

According to the game producer, it may take a few hours, or days, before gamers get used to the control scheme of "Unity."

"Yes, to be honest, it is [a concern] for me a little bit," Pontbriand answered when asked about the unfamiliarity of the controls.

"It takes a few days, well, maybe I'm exaggerating, it takes a few hours to re-train yourself to force yourself to forget what we call the 'Assassin's Claw,' holding RT and A and pushing forward," he continued.

Despite this issue, Pontbriand is confident that players will eventually learn how to ignore their muscle memory and learn about the new controls, according to Lazy Gamer.

"I don't think it's going to turn off everyone," he said. "We see it in play tests where we have both AC players and non-AC players, AC players are struggling a little bit more to re-learn the controls because of muscle memory."

"But it becomes second nature," he added. "Obviously I've been working on this for a long time and playing the game every day for months now. So now it's become second nature to use A to go up, B to go down. Beyond that, it's not that different."

"It's just animations have changed, our timings have changed, the distances and metrics have changed a little bit, and then these controls bring something that feels different," he continued.  

"Assassin's Creed Unity" is scheduled for release on Nov 14 for the PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Pontbriand previously said that the next-gen console versions of the game will run at 900p and 30 frames per second. However, a representative from Ubisoft clarified that this could still change, Euro Gamer reported.

"Final specs for 'Assassin's Creed Unity' aren't cemented yet, but we can say we showed 'Assassin's Creed Unity' at 900p during our hands-on preview event last week," the spokesperson said.

"We're confident that gamers will be thrilled with the gorgeous graphics and how Paris is brought to life in 'Assassin's Creed Unity,'" the representative added.
