Who is really leading the French Revolution?
A critical moment in the French Revolution sets the scene for Assassin’s Creed Unity in this new trailer from Ubisoft.
“Paris, 1789. Commoners starved in the streets while aristocrats squandered the wealth of the nation,” reads the video description.
“Desperate and angry, they united and revolted against the power at hand and started the Revolution… But did the people truly lead the fight? Or did obscur forces use this time of chaos to spread their power?”
Assassin’s Creed Unity is set in 18th century Paris, during the French revolution, with players cast as French-Austrian assassin Arno Victor Dorian.
Ubisoft has said the game features its “biggest playground ever”, which has been “filled with hundreds of quests, activities and rewards”.
This is the second AC Unity trailer released today – an earlier video discussed the oppression of the people at the hands of “an arrogant and decadent aristocracy”.
The Assassin’s Creed Unity release date is set for October 28 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
