@armyofmeat: Yeah, it was apparently first published in 1779, making it somewhat inappropriate for the start of the war. Can't say when it became popular, though.

Christ. This cut of Amazing Grace was physically painful to hear.

Not a great trailer, fellas.

The victorious song over slow-motion horrible things happening trick isn't really doing it for me anymore.

As a norwegian with little knowledge of american history, I have no idea who the redcoats or the bluecoats are.

I just want to swing my ass around those trees.

A FRENCH company making a game set during the AMERICAN revolution releases an ad with a song which became primarily associated with African-Americans (slaves during the time the game is set). Oh and by the way you play the game as a (partial?) member of a group of natives who would go on to become victims of genocide. lol ok?

I'm not saying any of this to bitch at Ubisoft or the franchise, love them both - I just had to take a step back and shake my head for a sec...

Yeah can't we just go back to videogames made by US companies set during all kinds of wars where US americans kill arabic, asian and all kinds of other colored people? After all that stuff is way cooler and less controversial!

"Omg i'm not gonna kill red/blue coats! Do i look like some kind of traitor?!"

The ammount of US/UK butthurt over this game is all kinds of annoying, get over yourselfs please. Patroitism is just a lesser form of nationalism, that makes it sound somewhat more acceptable.

Exactly. I didn't hear much complaints when it came to killing Arabs or Italians in the previous games. Plus, the Vita game you get to play as a female assassin. So are we going to be sexist too? It's just a series that follows history.

Amazing Grace is an exceptional song, and I don't like it most of the time.

Well I guess you're not playing because they have show one (minor?) assassination target, and it is a red coat.

Or, you know, the six or seven other red coats they'v killed in the clips I'v seen

They really couldn't have found someone better to do a cover of that song?

Turned this shit off about two seconds into the kid singing.

I hate how annoying our anthems are, especially when sung by children.

That's not one of our anthems.

It's British...

Why is this the worst version of Amazing Grace I've ever heard?

Probably because this is one of the worst versions anybody's heard.

Also, the trailer generally needs less Amazing Grace and more fife & drum.

Amazing Grace?
 
What do you think this is, Deadly Premonition?

What a bad cover of Amazing Grace. At least the game looks great.

@l4wd0g said:

Wasn't the hymn "Amazing Grace" made around the US Civil War time?

Nope, it's older then that.

Posted by Pop

Wait, I didn't see PC in the logos at the bottom :O. And on the release page for PC it say Q4, so they haven't announced a release date for PC but they'll probably release it a month later AGAIN and have it be the worst version of the game. I wish they made the PC version better the first AC was pretty good on PC the rest were poopy /rant.

At least we have mel gibson on our side.

Worst choice of music in a trailer.. Assassin's Creed III thinks it's a movie..smh tisk tisk

Well that last TWENTY SECONDS or so was completely gross, and the rest was boring.

PS am I crazy or are these graphics pretty ugly?

@CyborgDuo said:

Yeah, it's bad. I think the trailer overall is pretty bad, though. It seems like a lot of random images that have no ties, and the graphics look jagged and pretty dated. It doesn't look as polished as other demos have looked. I'm not sure why, but I hope it's just because it's not using a PC on high settings or the trailer was just thrown together quickly...

Posted by Hunter5024

It would have been awesome if this trailer ended with Rasrhfdjgl;hgkd; finding the little girl whose singing and neck stabbing her.

Blue guys and red guys blowing each other ... up.

60 FPS trailer... Game won't be running 60 FPS on consoles... I can hear the cries of "Ubisoft false advertising!" already.

I honestly didn't even notice the preorder stuff. I just thought it would be super cool to explore those places.

I can't wait for those trees.

Why is this trailer telling me to ignite a revolution on July 4th if the game isn't out until October?

That trailer was awesome. Gave me chills. Also liked Alex's caption.

Posted by usgrovers

As much as I want to play this game, Ubisoft is really making me question its purchase. As a 360 player, how can I justify paying $60 when I am getting less content than PS3 players and those who pre-order? All of this Disc Locked Content (DLC) makes me want to wait a few weeks and buy used off of Craigslist for $30.
