E3 2014: ‘Assassin’s Creed: Unity’ Gameplay Demo and Trailer Are Here
  |  @   |  

Every single year gamers everywhere expect Ubisoft to reach that point when it comes to their Assassin’s Creed franchise—the point when it’s just too much and they need to stop putting the games out so often. But every single year they show up with a new entry in the series, and it almost always wows. Sure, some feel the aforementioned point of no return was crossed long ago. But for most, the games simply continue to be high-quality history-hopping fun.

This year’s title is Assassin’s Creed: Unity, and it’s set during the French Revolution. Basically closest thing to Les Miserables: The Video Game you’ll ever get (fun fact: there actually IS a fighting game from Japan inspired by Les Miserables!), despite that story being set a bit after the history.

At E3 2014 Ubisoft showed off a ton of Unity, including a gameplay demo, a co-op demo, a cinematic trailer featuring a cover of a popular ’80s song, and an introduction to the game’s protagonist. All of these videos can be seen below.

For those curious, the song is quite the popular cover of Tears For Fears’ “Everybody Wants to Rule the World” by Lorde. It’s been used in plenty of geek-related videos and fan-made trailers including for BioShock Infinite, which also had its own cover of the song, Game of Thrones, and more (spoiler warning for these videos if you’ve not yet played/aren’t caught up).

Assassin’s Creed: Unity will be released on October 28th.
