Chico, CA (PRWEB) August 25, 2014
In a contest format with fan voting and Ubisoft’s creative team input, Design By Humans is looking for some killer designs inspired by Assassin’s Creed Unity. Artists can ignite their imagination with imagery from the game’s soaring gothic façade of Notre Dame, the razor edge of the guillotine and the feeling of a city embroiled in an uprising to overthrow a tyrannical regime. Design By Humans artists will be challenged to start an art revolution that will make the Assassins want to trade in their hoods for some new threads.
Set in a once-magnificent Paris, Assassin’s Creed Unity plunges into the terror of the 1789 French Revolution and features the most dense and immersive Assassin’s Creed city ever created. Through the streets of Paris, the starving inhabitants are set to take up arms for freedom and equality. In this time of chaos and brutality, a young man named Arno, wounded by the loss of those he loved, sets out on a deadly path of redemption. Arno’s pursuit throws him into the middle of a ruthless struggle for the fate of a nation and transforms him into a true Master Assassin.
