Assassin’s Creed: Unity Celebrates Fête Nationale with a New Gameplay Trailer

By   /   Jul 15, 2014

Ubisoft has released a brand-new gameplay trailer for its upcoming open-world action game, Assassin’s Creed: Unity, presumably to celebrate the French Holiday Fête Nationale.

Set on the Île de la Cité island, in front of the Notre Dame Cathedral, the trailer depicts 18th Century Paris, oppressed commoners during a public execution, and in the midst of all this, our young master assassin, Arno Dorian.

The trailer is also narrated apparently by Arno Dorian who gives us a bit of backstory of corrupt rulers and how he came across standing for his countrymen:

For centuries my countrymen have suffered under the ignorant and decadent aristocracy. So I will wage my silent war in the shadows; the time has come for revolution, for those to unite and make history.

Though the trailer is published under the ‘Gameplay Trailer’ banner, it mostly comprises of in-game cinematic which we also saw at this year’s E3. The only actual gameplay footage is of Arno leaping from one building and jumping into another.

Assassin’s Creed: Unity releases on Oct. 28 this year for Xbox One, Playstation 4, and Windows PC. The developer Ubisoft has stated that it has not abandoned last-gen consoles and will share more information soon!
