Sometimes, you want an actual gameplay trailer. To see footage of the game itself in action, thus getting a freaking clue about what you'll be playing when it arrives. But some developers just don't want to dick around with that sort of thing. Gameplay? Nuts to it.
Then there are the cinematic trailers, usually festivals of CG melodrama and plot exposition. Destiny was great at these, with that dude prattling about the moon in his announcer-ly voice and all. But hold on to your butts, because Assassin's Creed Unity is here with some melodrama of its own. Not to mention more freaking assassins than anybody wants in their faces on a Monday morning.
Unity, for the uninitiated, is set in Paris during the French Revolution. Now, I paid zero attention during Mr ‘Pervy' Pendlewurst's history class, but even I know that this wasn't a time to eff around. There were guillotines and heads flying about with abandon and rather catchy national anthems being written all over the damn place.
And if there's one thing the Assassins like (other than casual hooded jackets and those stealthy stab-your-effing-face-before-you-can-say-‘oh balls' wrist blades of theirs), it's anarchy and revolution. All together, that's four things they like, but what the hell. They're all on display in this trailer.
