Early Footage From Assassin's Creed Creator's 1666: Amsterdam

In 2010 Assassin’s Creed creator Patrice Désilets left Ubisoft to form his own studio within THQ to work on a game called 1666: Amsterdam. Here’s our first look at how that game was shaping up before being sold back to Ubisoft and left in limbo for three years.

According to the description of the YouTube video below (via Reddit), the footage comes from a build from several years ago, aimed at the previous console generation. The theme of the game, set in the glory days of Amsterdam (I’m guessing that’s around 1666), was “be worse than the devil,” with the player taking control of various animals associated with black magic, such as crows and black cats.

The footage seems to have come from the recent Reboot Develop Conference, where Désilets was a speaker, Watch it below.

Ubisoft acquired the 1666 property from the doomed THQ in 2013. Patrice Désilets came with the property, but was fired soon after the sale. Désilets sued Ubisoft for control of the game, finally regaining the rights earlier this month.

Désilets is currently hard at work on his next game, Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey with his own Panache Digital Games.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
