Looks like Insomniac Games are taking pot shots at Assassin’s Creed developer Ubisoft! The developer of such greats hits like Resistance: Fall of Man and Ratchet & Clank: Into The Nexus, is punching Ubisoft in the teeth, kicking them in the butt, and throwing them under a bus over their recent comments to not include the female gender in their latest game, Assassin’s Creed Unity. How? By adding the female assassins in their game, Sunset Overdrive.
This crack shot was first seen in the Sunset Overdrive Game Youtube Channel, on their latest video (attached above). Its primary reason was to present the use of traps and how they are just as crazy as the weapons in Sunset Overdrive. However, it is at the end where the plot, being the supposed unspoken peace between Insomniac and Ubisoft, makes a very unique plot change. One of their fans, named Brittany, asked the following simple question:
“Can you play as a female character?”
The resounding answer is “yes” as a female character holding a ridiculously-designed cannon-type gun of awkward size appears on screen. It isn’t the gun that grabs the viewers attention though, it is the female character’s clothes, which assembled looks like she’s an assassin. Also, by how she jumps, wall runs, and swings, she is better at traversing towns than Altair, Ezio, or any of those other normally slow loser dudes in the Assassin’s Creed Series. Kotaku did add in their report some added insights about the big “female assassin” reveal in Sunset Overdrive though by stating the following:
“This glimpse at Sunset Overdrive‘s ‘assassin’ is very quick, making it tough to discern whether this is an actual outfit in the game or just a bunch of wardrobe choices that approximates the hooded look of Ubisoft’s stealthy protagonists.”
Also, this jab is a bit of an eyebrow-lifter because both games are fairly new in their announcement. We here, at The Inquisitr, have reported the reveals of both Assassin’s Creed: Unity and Sunset Overdrive. All and all, it should probably be noted that Insomniac only took their jab after Ubisoft announced their reason to nix female assassins in the upcoming title.
