Game Features

Movement & Navigation

Due to the game covering most of the basic movement controls in the tutorial chapters, I am only quickly cover the basics and any advanced information or controls that are not covered in the control section above; this will mostly cover common game features that have adjustments for Unity.

Walking & Running

While walking Arno will blend with the environment and the crowds to avoid detection, but by holding R2 / RT you can enter High Profile mode to run at the cost of detection by those you seek to find Arno.


The game carries over the mechanics from AC III and IV, allowing you to run over buildings, up and through trees, and even inside building interiors.

Unlike the previous installments, buildings now have interiors with multiple floors that you can explore rather than the game taking control and interiors purely using to break line of sight. These interiors allow the game to have missions transition for exterior events to interior events at the drop of a hat.

In addition to climbing, you can now hold R2 + O / RT + B to quick descend down from any location.

While running you can pass over or under tables, windows, and low obstacles effortlessly by holding R2 + O / RT + B as you approach the obstacle.

Fast Travel Networks

Fast Travel is available to all viewpoints, the Cafe Theatre, and the Assassin’s HQ.
