Video: One of Assassin's Creed Unity's time rift levels

See Paris in another era. Warning: spoilers!

Warning: Although this video does not include specific story spoilers, it does occur around halfway through the game and is by its nature slightly spoilerific, so if you don't want to know anything about it then don't read the description or watch it below!

Assassin's Creed Unity may be set in Paris in the late 1700s, but according to the series' wider meta-story you are actually playing as an Abstergo initiate tapping into genetic memories in the present day, and on a few occasions the designers use this as an excuse to show you Paris at different times during its history.

The one Ubisoft has talked about so far kicks you forward over 100 years to the height of Germany's occupation during World War 2. Set at night, this mission involves getting from your insertion point to an exit atop a certain famous landmark. Watch us take on the entire mission below.
