Assassin’s Creed Unity celebrates Bastille Day with murder

Assassin's Creed Unity Bastille Day

While the French celebrate Bastille Day, remembering the storming of the Bastille and the subsequent uprising, the rest of us can just watch a new Assassin’s Creed Unity trailer, showing off new single-player footage and lots of jumping and murdering interspersed with hyperbolic accolades from E3. 

Take a gander at the video below. 

Ubisoft’s also put together a second trailer detailing Unity’s setting: the Revolution and The Reign of Terror. It breaks down the historical events and ties it into the fiction where a puppet master appears in the chaos, presumably the Templars.

I am, I confess, starting to find it a little odd that I’ve yet to hear a single French accent. Ubisoft is French and Ubisoft Montreal is in French-speaking Quebec, making it all the more strange. Hopefully the authenticity is being saved for the game, because right now it’s more like the BBC’s bizarre Musketeers TV show.
