Does Assassin's Creed IV's Live-Action Teaser Measure Up?

Assassin's Creed IV Has A Live-Action Teaser Now. Does it Measure Up?

Assassin's Creed Lineage, the live-action companion series to the second game, was pretty damn good. Recognising that, last year, Ubisoft released a live-action trailer for ACIII. And now, they've got one for the newest entry in their free-roaming neck-stabbing series. How is it? Let's take a look.

It's dark, evidently. I mean, you can't really expect sunshine and rainbows when your opening shot shows a floating corpse. Then again, no surprises there, considering...

The one for Assassin's Creed III was just as dark. Though here, it's more about the horrors of war as opposed to, well, pirates. Note the four-letter thematic word: "Rise", compared to ACIV's "Defy".

Lineage, which accompanied Assassin's Creed II, had its bright(er) moments. But then again, it was a complete series, not a two-minute trailer. 30 minutes' worth of total depression might not necessarily keep your audience watching.

Got a favourite? Which word do you think the fifth game's trailer will be based on? Chime in below.


    Really good editing - obviously they have the budget for this kind of thing - geez Assassin's Creed is big!

    Just reminded me how much I disliked the America! F*** yeah! advertising for ACIII.

    Lineage is awesome though. Never regretted buying the special edition with it as a bonus DVD.
