Ubisoft has posted the first trailer for its upcoming next-gen Assassin’s Creed game, Assassin’s Creed: Unity.
The short video focuses on the game’s environments, opening inside a spotless mansion, before moving out to track through a smoky vision of Paris’ 18th century streets. It closes on a wide panning shot that shows a maddened crowd surrounding a guillotine, overlooked by a mysterious new assassin — presumably the player character — dressed in a navy blue robe.
Ubisoft says it has been working on Unity for “more than three years,” suggesting it had started to design the fifth full-fledged entry in the series shortly after releasing Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood. According to Kotaku, Unity will be joined by another Assassin’s Creed game, designed for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, later this year. That game is reportedly called, or code-named, Comet.
Release Date PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC later this year — will be set in Paris during the French Revolution.
