Easter eggs in games can be as simple as a bit of in-game art referencing something else the game’s director likes, but other times the developers will go in-depth to implant something just to see if gamers ever find it. Well over a year after release, Assassin’s Creed Unity‘s best hidden Easter egg has been discovered.
Scattered around revolutionary-era Paris are five lavish, pink cakes that protagonist Arno can consume. Eating the cakes doesn’t bestow any kind of bonus or loot onto the player, and for a long time it was assumed that just the ability to eat the cake was the Easter egg. It turns out, however, that there are five cakes scattered around the map. YouTube channel Ubicentral took the time to show off the locations of all five in the video above, as well as what happens once you’ve pigged-out on all five cakes.
In Palais de Luxembourg, you can find a gigantic version of the cake. Standing atop the cake is, as noticed by particularly observant fans, the Marquis de Bullion, the target of Unity‘s original E3 2014 demo mission – a mission that didn’t appear in the final game.
Easter eggs are always fun to dig up, and this one shows how the team making the game was able to repurpose something that was initially thrown out and turn it into something enjoyable for their most devoted fans.
