A Literal Take on Assassin’s Creed: Revelation trailer

If you haven’t played them, the Assassin’s Creed games are like conspiracy theory fanfiction for atheists. They take significant liberties with most mono- and polytheistic religions and build a what-if scenario where they’re all technically correct, but all the events recorded have a wholly different explanation — specifically, technology left by an ancient precursor civilization.

That, and they’re about all sorts of epic ass-kicking through historic venues, and some of the best parkour in any video game to date.

The original trailer for Revelations made me at first say “ah, come on, a THIRD Ezio game?” But I warmed up to it rather quickly, between the fact that it’ll take place in Constantinople, and the promise that it’ll provide some actual closure before what promises to be the actual end of the series in Assassin’s Creed 3. Brotherhood left everything way too open for my liking.

And then, this “literal” interpretation of the trailer came along and completely sealed it for me.

I will love this game so hard.

(The literal version of Brotherhood’s spot is pretty good too.)
