The lights are on
Ubisoft's new trailer for Assassin's Creed Unity emphasizes the inequality that France's working class suffered under a corrupt aristocracy, which leads to a whole lot of people getting stabbed in their heads, necks, and vital organs.
A voiceover from new protagonist Arno Victor Dorian rallies the people (and players) to his cause as in-game clips show off Unity's gorgeous environments, impressive crowds, and new mechanics. Ubisoft says the new-gen exclusive features revamped combat and parkour mechanics, and better stealth gameplay, which you can see glimpses of in the trailer below.
Assassin's Creed Unity launches on October 28 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. For more on Unity, check out Miller's list of Ten Things You Need To Know about the game.

Still incredibly violent I see.
You got to be kidding me... I've been waiting for more gameplay information on this for over a month and today, on the anniversary of the French Revolution, they decide it'd be a good idea to release a two minute story trailer that doesn't tell us anything we couldn't find out by being familiar with the series or having read a history text book?
I'm really excited for this but I desperately hope they have more in store for today.
Played the first Assassins Creed this week to get my fix before this game comes out, might have to play the second one soon.
I love reading you, JeffM. That first paragraph is gold.
Clever of Ubisoft to release a trailer on Bastille day
