Not that this is a bad thing at all, but for a while as we watched this latest Assassin’s Creed trailer we did wonder if we were actually watching a featurette. Jeremy Irons as Alan Rikkin (a character from the games – the CEO of Abstergo Industries and a member of the Inner Sanctum of the Templar Order) gives a handy plot summary of what the Assassin’s Creed games are all about which is great for anybody who’s never played them.
Through a revolutionary technology that unlocks his genetic memories, Callum Lynch (Michael Fassbender) experiences the adventures of his ancestor, Aguilar, in 15th Century Spain. Callum discovers he is descended from a mysterious secret society, the Assassins, and amasses incredible knowledge and skills to take on the oppressive and powerful Templar organisation in the present day.
Assassin’s Creed is released in the UK on 1 January 2017.
