Ubisoft Launches Assassin's Creed III Interactive Trailer

Video game trailers are meant to make your trigger finger itch, but Ubisoft is taking things a step further with its new Assassin’s Creed III trailer. Ubisoft opted for a Choose-Your-Own-Adventure-style trailer that has you playing a big role in what you see and the outcome of mini flick. If you’ve been impatiently awaiting the latest installment of sneak ‘n’ slash franchise, the interactive trailer is going to set you on fire for tomorrow’s official launch.

Connor Surveys The Battlefied In Assassin's Creed III

The interactive trailer starts out by introducing you to Connor, who is seeking revenge during the American Revolution. There’s not much time for backstory, though, as he’s in the middle of a pitched battle and has a mission: take out the enemy brass. How Connor goes about that, though, is up to you, and that’s where the trailer starts to get interesting. At certain points, you’ll decide whether he sneaks or fights, and your choices will decide his fate.

Sneak in or barrel right at your enemies? The choice is yours.

Interactive trailers aren’t entirely new – Dishonored is among the more recent games to have one, for example. They seem to be picking up momentum, though, and that’s just fine with us.
