New Assassin’s Creed III Trailer

Assassin’s Creed III has a new trailer. First off it confused the hell out of me because there’s a line in there that reads, “This July 4th, Ignite the Revolution.” At that point I’d honestly thought I’d missed a memo and this game, which isn’t actually releasing until the end of October, was coming out tomorrow. Weird. More than that, though, I’m embedding this trailer because of ¬†how much it looks like they’re aping the amazing trailer released last year for Bioshock: Infinite. I’ve included that one after the break…

Is saying it’s “aping” this too critical? Perhaps we should just call it an homage? I’m all for taking something cool and going to school on it. Good artists borrow, great ones steal outright, and all that. Either way, it’s quite a parallel.

Todd was born in Ann Arbor, with a Michigan helmet in one hand and a mouse in the other. (Never you mind the logistics of this.) He grew, vertically anyway, and is a 20-year publishing veteran as an editor of books on consumer tech and professional development for educators. Because that wasn't enough of a challenge, Todd was a 20-year part-time snob about video games, writing reviews, features, and more for multiple outlets from 1997-2015.
