Assassins Creed And Paris Mash Up!

The Ultimate Mash Up Of Assassins Creed And Paris!

Assassins Creed And Paris Mash Up!

It is amazing how some cities of the world are hardly unchanged from paintings made two or three hundred years ago, in some cases even longer. So when Ubisoft took Assassins Creed to France during the revolution, you might expect the scenery to be different today. Yet, these cool images prove that some of the streets and landmarks from that period remain. To prove the point the artist visited Paris in the game and took some screen shots, he then visited Paris for real and matched the screen shots to actual places, the results are truly amazing. According to the tweet by Damien Hypolite @damienhypolite this how these incredible images came about.

Today I visited Paris 2 times. First with a paddle in my hands, in 1789, through the eyes of Arno Victor Dorian, hero of the new videogame Assassin’s Creed Unity. Then, biking (under the rain), comparing 2014’s Paris to the French Revolution’s Paris recreated by Ubisoft’s teams.

The good news is that Ubisoft have recently announced that the next Assassins Creed will be taking place in London, so I know what will be doing after completing the game.
