What is Abstergo's Animus capable of? That's what the new trailer of Assassin's Creed III answers and shows, with multiplayer footage.

That trailer is a little weird. On the one hand it's supposed to be a promotion video, directly out of the game's "world" where the animus actually exists. On the other hand it completely ignores the game's story, like that the Animus is actually some secret technology. And then it talks about game modes etc. like if it were some developer diary

I feel like the marketing team didn't really know where they wanted to go with this one.

They've had these Animus trailers before for the previous games' multiplayer but usually they were addressing the Templars. Him doing the game talk was jarring, I was expecting him to tell us to pre-order the game at the end in an equally cognitively dissonant manner.

Very meta Ubisoft.

Could be related to the campaign. Maybe Abstergo have released a consumer Animus and want to use it for some dastardly purpose :L

    KORNdog Lego marvel has quite possibly the most frustrating, mind bogglingly stupid flying controls in the history of video games. (4 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Origins, Legends, DK Tropical Freeze and 3D World are probably the best platforming had to offer in a while. (6 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @nostradamus: It is indeed damn good. I love to 100% all the levels, i had that with Origins too. Some of those levels are really unique too. Looks great too and music as well. Great stuff. (6 Hours ago)
