    Hopefully, this won't be as buggy as Unity

    It'll probably need 2 or 3 day 1 patches before it's stable. :^)

    On a more serious note though, I hope they don't milk it with a lame cliffhanger ending; a standalone movie to draw people into the series would be nicer.

    Man, I don't wanna be a cynic but this doesn't look like it'll be good at all. The cheesy dialogue, the chick smirking as she murders two dudes at 1:22. The jumping off the tower (probably into a pile of hay) works in the games, but this stuff will not transfer well to a cinematic format. Assassin's Creed is both too serious and too unrealistic to do what they're obviously trying to do.

    This is coming from someone who played it religiously from Altair to Edward; it just can't work out.

    That's what I was thinking somewhat. I'd watch it because I like Fassbender, but man. That trailer wasn't convincing. I don't know why I bother watching trailers, a lot of them are similar, using the same tired cliches and such. This one in particular used that sound drop Inception popularized. Since Inception did it, every fucking trailer, especially action ones, and even video games like Mortal Kombat X, use that sound drop effect. The rap is poop, I guess it's Kanye. Mixing some industrial techno babble with his rapping, sounds mismatched and dreadful. Of course he'd say "I am a God."

    The actual footage in the movie, it's alright, I'm curious about how they depicted that era in history, there weren't long enough shots for me to tell if it was strong location shooting or just sets and green screens galore. In some ways it looked like current gen graphics. Also, 20th Century Fox bombed with Fantastic Four, and although it's different from AC, there's proof that they don't have a good rep heading into another adaptation of a piece of work.

    Lastly, I assume this explains why there won't be an AC game this year, let's change it up and help Fox and Regency make a movie.

    Oh good, they have all the things from the games in it. Running, jumping, more running, more jumping, the hay cart dive. I don't see any slow climbs up tall structures, minus points for them.

    I'm getting a very Prince of Persia vibe from this. Where the movie looked visually pleasing and it seemed like they had the concept in the trailer, then the movie ended up being a visually pleasing mess.

    Not gonna lie, that trailer makes it look good and im kind of curious to see the movie. There are several pretty damn good actors in it for a video-game movie too!

    Based on the description above the video in the post, the answer would be its a new character. Really though Altairs story has already been told. Would make no sense to just retell it in a movie. So I guess think of it as likely a continuation after Syndicate would be my guess if we are going with that the movie is the reason why no AC game this year.

    The plot of Assassin's Creed is by far my least favorite aspect of the games, any part dealing with the present/near-future, the Ancients and all that just takes me out of the experience immediately. I really wish they had just gone with historical fiction jumping through different eras and counties with each game.
