18th Century North America.

After more than 20 years of conflict, the 13 American colonies and the British Crown are on the brink of war.

Battle lines are drawn.

Bloodshed is inevitable.

Out of the embers of his burning village, a new assassin will RISE.

Watch the brand new RISE trailer here:

Pro American..and you claim neutrality? how wonderful, Ubisoft.

Using a trailer like that in a thread about an event in the UK goes to prove irony is not lost.

I was just about getting past the fact that the villains are constantly being shown to be only British troops in the marketing materials, but it is getting beyond daft now.

I know in the game it will not be as one sided as it is being shown currently but at this rate I will not experience that first hand.

That trailer can very probably be counted as whitewashing history, terrible.

The thing was GREAT. In this they weren't pro-american at all.They were pro-people who should chose their own life.THAT IS what the Assassins stand for : LIBERTY. They want to help the opressed people.This trailer is miles away diffrent from the disaster that was presented yesterday.

This is awesome.

You think the music will be a main theme in AC3?

I completely agreed with you there :) I love the music in the trailer too.

I'm pretty sure that the song is My Body is A Cage by Peter Gabriel.

This sounds pretty much like what we've seen from E3... Are they just gonna show that?

I agree with the first 2 posts. This so called neutrality is getting beyond a joke now. I too actually just forgot about it but yet again ubisoft, you fail to show your claim to it. When can I actually see footage of these so called Templars on BOTH sides? Or better still seeing an American Officer getting assassinated instead of countless British soldiers/officers being torn apart?
Kind of a bad idea to use this in Britain.

Oh bloody, bloody hell.

For a trailer about Assassin's Creed, I love how the assassin barely show up.

This is what I was thinking. They actually don't show anything pro-American in the video, it is all pro-Liberty. People need to stop taking sides with the belligerents' modern societies and look at what the war was actually about, freedom from monarchy. Ubisift is a French company, their revolution was a direct result of the American revolution and they fought it over the same thing, and countless countries world wide have fought and are still fighting for freedom from tyranny and imperialism. The theme is universal, not American.

While the historical context is obviously American, the theme is not. It speaks to the struggle of mankind since the beginning of time (much like the story of the Assassins and Templars) Assassins seeking peace through freedom and Templars seeking peace through domination.

To my British friends I say this: At least this game isn't about the British Raj like some were hypothesizing.

This trailer really "promotes" liberty and this is very assassin-like, but you must admit that the one from yesterday was made to appeal to american people so much.I would really like your opinion because you are from the USA.
And I must say it again, this trailer IS AWESOME.You can actually feel the struggle of some opressed people in this one, and it is so that the opressed people are americans.

It promotes revolution. Particularly the revolution which is the backdrop to the game. Personally, I'd like to actually see more about Connor, his story, the Assassins and how they fit into this backdrop, rather then keep going on about it.

Then why not show some negative sides of the Americans? not just ''Hurr durr liberty!'' back then Liberty was different. Why not show the slaves? why not show that the founding father smoked Marijuana?

The problem is all of the marketing is like this, if the marketing was balanced, but this is 4th July, I would understand, but this is just...why?

I think its superposed to be an olive branch of sorts. No doubt there will be lots of PR people saying "NO its not anti british Conner is neutral, its templars v assassins. Come and see him kill some redcoats." :roll like at e3 But It all depends on what they show to be honest. But putting it up with this trailer as they have is, to be polite misguided.

The closest showing to where I live is in Sheffield on the 3rd of August, in about 4 weeks, i'll have to see if one of my parents can take me, and i'll try to sneak in the camcorder i got her :p

Keep in mind it's 18+
Which is stupid because alot of the fanbase is less than 18. Which is proven by the fact that alot of chairs were empty.

In the trailer? It will probably be touched on in the game. There's been slavery everywhere, and btw the slaves were brought in before the American revolution. "Hurr durr liberty!"... so what? "Go King and Country for Oppression, Murder, and Imperialism!" These were English people who were sick of treatment and fought against their Government. They smoked pot, Oh no!

Well, the showing that is closest to me is in meadowhall, Sheffield, on friday, that's about a 30/40 minute drive from where i live, and since i can't drive, i'll have to ask one of my parents, or my grandfather to take me (if i can convince them it'll be worth it), if i can't make it, then i'll just have to wait until gamescom, or until i get the game.

But if i can make it, i'll write up a review in this thread of what i think of it

EDIT

Well, that's a resounding 'no' :p so it looks like i'll have to wait 'til either gamescom or when i get the game.

Should probably just leave it to the mods to do it themselves buddy. It's doing no harm where it is and I'm sure they'll drop it when it needs

Just laughed hard! I hope they do this again in October when I am 18 but i am very doubtful they would so close to release. As to the post above, im sure you won't over exhaust yourself scrolling that little bit more.
