In the latest trailer for Assassin’s Creed Unity, new protagonist Arno rallies an insurrection against the decadent French aristocracy through whispers and wetwork.
The trailer (seen above) is otherwise exactly what you’d expect for an annual Assassins’ Creed entry. A bit of the new environments are shown off, though their geographical scope is hindered by fast cuts and a lack of space/time inherent to trailers designed to show a lot of scenes in a short space. There’s plenty of requisite murder, including the cutting of necks and decapitation, and no shortage of running along rooftops.
Of note, however, but hardly the focal point of the trailer (which seems largely to exist to remind us all that there’ll be another Assassins’ Creed this year, lest we forget what “annualized” means), Unity will introduce a redesigned parkour system, with buttons allocated for upward and downward movement.
Assassin’s Creed Unity launches across Windows PC, PS4, and Xbox One October 28 worldwide.
