Assassin's Creed III: Animus Trailer

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

About the game


What's up?
  • Loakum
    Loakum @itanite - I had pre ordered in full when it cost $63.59, so when I used the trade in deal, I got $38 change back. I used that towards Alien Isolation pre order. (22 minutes ago)
  • Loakum
    Loakum @itainite - that's a pretty good deal, but Gamestop's current trade-in deal (The Last of Us PS3), you could get the TLOU Remastered for only $27 (tax included). (24 minutes ago)
  • itaintrite
    itaintrite I preordered at BestBuy to use my $15 promo code :) TLoU same day pick up for $35, whoot. (30 minutes ago)
  • Loakum
    Loakum @Doom_Bringer - Oh. I had to do the same thing, but I did it 4 days ago. Sorry they're now all sold out. :( (32 minutes ago)
  • Doom_Bringer
    Doom_Bringer @Loakum: I wanted to take advantage of the $24 trade in deal. I had it pre ordered but cancelled it at the last minute (41 minutes ago)
  • Loakum
    Loakum @Doom_Bringer - It does put into perspective this whole "if gamers should pre order games" debate. Did ya try amazon.com? They're pretty quick with delivery. (42 minutes ago)
  • Loakum
    Loakum @Doom_Bringer - Dang! That's insane! Hope Gamestop restock The Last of Us Remastered, soon! (44 minutes ago)
