Storm the Bastille my Brothers
Arguably the best known secular holiday in the world is the Fourth of July, America's celebration of the day they won their Independence from the UK. More accurately known as the day we couldn't be arsed dealing with their tantrum anymore. But did you know this is not the only major holiday in July? I'm sure you do if you're French, because it also happens to be the largest, again secular, holiday in your country. It also happens to be a pivotal point, and major factor of, the upcoming Assassin's Creed Unity. So, of course, when July 14th hit, it did not go unnoticed. Bringing us not one, but two videos and a most impressive piece of artwork to commemorate the occasion.
Unlike some earlier offerings around the E3 time, the first of these two consists entirely of in game footage. Or, well, in engine at the very least. Though still presented in a decidedly cinematic style. The latter of the two, however, is much more lateral in its relation to the game itself. Serving more as a very brief introduction to the afore mentioned Bastille day and, specifically, the events which surrounded it. They being the catalyst for the events of the upcoming chapter in the Assassin's Creed franchise.
Still, I have one little thing niggling at the back of my head. What. precisely, is this second Creed game we've been told will be coming this year? Is this the project that Ubisoft's new Quebec office are working on? The jury is still out on that one.
