I think more than any other series, Assassin’s Creed is never afraid to explore the fact that it can take place in any world, at any time. It may not always pay off fully, but whether it’s Renaissance Rome, Revolutionary America, or Johnny Depp Caribbeans Assassin’s Creed can at least flesh out its settings.
That said, Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag showed off a gorgeous wide screen trailer (apologies for the quality) that shows off the beautiful world the next in the killer franchise will take place in.
It happens every year but I always see a new trailer for AC, think “Wow that looks soooooo good!” and never end up buying the game.
Maybe this time?
