Today, Ubisoft® announced the launch of a unique online experience, Project Widow, ahead of the launch of the video-game, Assassin’s Creed Unity.
Offering a 360 degree street level view, the online interactive guided tour will immerse visitors in Assassin’s Creed Unity and bring to life Paris in the late 18th century amidst the bloody heart of the French Revolution. Visiting the sites of some of the French Revolution’s darkest moments, players will see Paris as it is now whilst experiencing Paris as it was then.
Participants will be able to explore the immersive virtual world Paris in their own time, discover hotspots rich in history, uncover hidden Assassin’s Creed Unity art and videos, win prizes and exclusives and uncover the secrets of the assassins and revolution. Look closer in dark corners for competitions and exclusive bonus content.
A charismatic revolutionary, voiced by British actor Andy Serkis (Lord Of The Rings), is the guide and narrator. Offering a very extraordinary and personal tour of Paris, he describes the Revolution from his own gritty experience. Though beware; he may have his own hidden agenda.
Project Widow can be accessed online here with a simple sign-up and is named after one of the most famous nicknames for the guillotine during 18th Century Paris, bringing an intriguing element to the online tour. Is it all just another clue in the Unity world?
Assassin’s Creed Unity will release on the 14th November in the UK.
