Following Ubisoft's release of a teaser trailer for the upcoming Assassin's Creed Unity, heads will roll as the excitement builds up.
Ubisoft's latest addition to the hit video game franchise Assassin's Creed is set during the turmoil of the French Revolution. The new title will follow the exploits of Arno as he fights against the Templars in the streets of Paris during the late 1700s. The French Revolution is one of the most turbulent periods in European history. With a heavy hitting combination of violence and chaos, the French Revolution seems like the perfect setting for an Assassin's Creed game and Ubisoft has delivered. While Assassin's Creed: Unity is slated for an end of the year release, the company has finally confirmed the existence of the game last March 21.
Ubisoft has been working on its new title for the last three years. Gamers were first given a small glimpse of the game when Assassin's Creed: Unity images were leaked last March 12. The company also released a teaser trailer containing Alpha game footage of the upcoming title. The short teaser showed gamers a taste of the game's latest parkour system. The game will be released for the PC, the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4 during the fourth quarter of this year.
"Qu'ils mangent de la brioche [Let them eat cake]! We have been working on the new Assassin's Creed for more than three years and although we weren't quite ready to show you our full vision for a next-gen only AC, it seems Abstergo are trying to force our hand! So here's a true first look at in-game footage from Assassin's Creed Unity. Stay tuned - we'll have many more exciting details for you in the months ahead!" says Ubisoft in a description of the teaser trailer.
The teaser trailer takes gamers across the street of Paris culminating in a public execution near the iconic Notre Dame de Paris. The trailer also shows gamers the first video footage of the new protagonist Arno as he stands on top of an old Parisian building to watch the infamous guillotine in action.
With Ubisoft's habit of releasing multiple Assassin's Creed games in a single year, it is possible that another title from the video game franchise will also hit the stores this year. The first Assassin's Creed game was released back in 2007. Since then, Ubisoft has released a total of 15 Assassin's Creed titles on multiple platforms including Sony and Microsoft consoles, the PC and the Mac and a number of portable titles. The company has also released a few titles for Android, iOS, Symbian and even Facebook.
