New Assassin’s Creed: Unity trailer on Bastille Day

Coinciding with the French holiday, fête nationale, known in English-speaking countries as Bastille Day, Ubisoft has released a new trailer for Assassin’s Creed: Unity dubbed “Revolution.”

Set on the Île de la Cité, in front of the historic Notre Dame Cathedral, this latest trailer shows a population on the verge of rebellion, tension is high at a public execution with the armed guards holding the citizenry at bay. The undercurrent of revolution percolates to the surface and all hell breaks loose.

“The people cry out for food, for liberty, for justice. But they shall have no justice without someone to fight in their name,” narrates Arno Dorian, the protagonist of this entry in the series. As chaos reigns in the streets, Dorian skulks about out of sight, taking out armed guards with precision before dropping down from the top of Notre Dame into the middle of the fray.

Despite being a gameplay trailer, very little of the action appears to be straight gameplay, with most of it looking like in-game cinematics. That aside, the trailer looks great and Dorian’s line that he will “wage his war from the shadows” lines up nicely with the stealth focus of the game, which we noted in our preview at E3.

Join Dorian and his cause October 28, on Windows PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
