Assassin's Creed: Unity announced [Update: Trailer added]

It's just another day in the Animus, as Ubisoft announced Assassin's Creed: Unity today. The game is slated to arrive on PS4, Xbox One and PC this coming holiday season. Ubisoft offered a brief glimpse at the game in its early, alpha state in the trailer seen above.

Although Assassin's Creed 3 was widely criticized for being an unpolished American frontier work simulator, last year's Assaassin's Creed 4: Black Flag reestablished the franchise's sea legs with sure footed piracy. It appears the stabby adventure through time will now take place in Paris during the French Revolution of the 18th century (finally!).

Though we may be reading too much into this, it's interesting to note the presence of the PS4, Xbox One and PC logos in the Assassin's Creed: Unity trailer - but no Wii U. We've reached out to Ubisoft to see if a version is planned for Nintendo's home console.
