New 'Assassin's Creed Unity' Trailer Is A Work Of Art

The New 'Assassin's Creed' Is A Work Of Art

At its best, Assassin's Creed games are worlds to explore just as much as they are adventures to play and stories to follow.

Assassin's Creed Unity - aka the next-gen portion of Assassin's Creed 5 - looks like a total realisation of that promise.

Set in Paris during the late eighteenth century (with all the guillotines, flag waving and tri-cornered hats that implies) it returns the series to its roots with a focus on stealth combat, rooftop jumping, urban exploration and a tight, focused story.

Thanks to Microsoft's Xbox One presentation at Gamescom 2014 we now have a new trailer to feast our eyes on. Take a look above for all the details, and prepare to lose yourself in the revolutionary fervour come November.
