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

    GriftGFX @Moonwalker: It's mostly speculation.. wouldn't read too much into any of that. (4 Hours ago)
  • amerakindesi
    amerakindesi I'm thoroughly enjoying the fast and furious forza 2 game. it is actually much more than a demo (4 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker But again, why not show a trailer at E3? Show the fans what the team has been working on, show that it has made this delay worth it, i don't get it. (5 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Plenty of speculation on NeoGAF that this is either coming to Wii U AND the new NX...thing, or only for the NX. They seem to think NX releases in 2016. Nothing surprises me in this industry. (5 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @Ian_Nottingham: Metroid is definitely something i can see coming too. I mean...Retro's last game was DKCTF, nothing after that. Or perhaps a new 3D Mario? (5 Hours ago)
  • Ian_Nottingham
    Ian_Nottingham @Moonwalker: Nintendo has so much riding on zelda,it's best to give it as much time as possible.Perhaps a new third person metroid? (5 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker I do wonder what game is going to take Zelda's spot now. Xenoblade? Definitely not the same appeal as a Zelda game. Maybe they got a big game reveal planned for E3....meh. (5 Hours ago)
