It has begun. The traditional Ubisoft PR assault has started over, and this time it’s concentrated on Assassin’s Creed Unity. By now you likely know that the game’s set during the French Revolution, features 4 player co-op and a huge recreation of Paris, but we’ve yet to get a gameplay trailer. Until now. The short clip, which you can watch above, shows off the new traversal system (which looks deliciously fluid) and some good old fashioned AC combat. Although the game doesn’t look quite as graphically gorgeous as the cinematic trailers portrayed, it’s still very pretty – the decision to go next-gen exclusive with this has clearly paid off.
There’s also a short history lesson video, called “Inside the Revolution”. It goes into some more detail about the historical context of the game – if you’re into learning through video games, this will be of interest.
AC Unity is out at the end of October. Prepare for a whole load more trailers between now and then.
