There's a chance that some of the people picking up Assassin's Creed III in a few weeks won't have played the previous entries in Ubisoft's hit historical action series. They won't know about the Altair or the Templars or the Animus.
Well, this trailer will bring them up speed in dramatic fashion. It's also narrated by someone very close to the series' modern-day protagonist Desmond Miles. Sufficed to say, it contains spoilers.
This video -- which went live too soon, was region-restricted, reuploaded and posted to NeoGAF -- might even be an in-game intro. Strangely, ACIII's hero Connor is nowhere to be seen. Odd bit of business, that.
