Ubisoft, coming off the leaked screenshots of Assassin’s Creed Unity has released a brand new Assassin’s Creed Unity Alpha trailer. The trailer shows the first official next generation of Assassin’s Creed and gives us a little insight into what the new title will be about. From the looks of of the trailer the rumors that Assassin’s Creed Unity will take place in France pre-revolution looks to be quite reliable. At the end of the trailer you can see the iconic guillotine crashing down that was used during the time period as an execution device.
Another interesting note to pull out of the announcement trailer is that it seems that this next-gen version of the game has been in development for quite some time. In the announcement notes Ubisoft says that the game has been in development for 3 years. The most interesting thing about the trailer, however, is that it seems to be forced out specifically from the Neogaf leaks. In the release of the trailer Ubisoft blatently states the reason the trailers origins.[quote style=’1′ cite=” title=”]We have been working on the new Assassin’s Creed for more than three years and although we weren’t quite ready to show you our full vision for a next-gen only AC, it seems Abstergo are trying to force our hand! – AssassinsCreedUK YouTube [/quote]
