Ubisoft released a host of new media for several of their key upcoming titles. Below are new trailers and screenshots for Anno 2205, Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, The Crew Wild Run, and Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege.

The trilogy will be tied together, but each game will not only adopt its own art style but also be set in different periods, including the Ming dynasty, Sikh Empire, and shortly after the Red October revolution.

Assassins Creed Unity (PC, PS4, Xbox One) Launch Announcement - Screenshot 1

In addition to the current-gen Assassin’s Creed Rogue, Ubisoft has also announced the release of the PC- and next-gen-only Assassin’s Creed Unity. ‘Generation’ is hard to define at the moment, so bear with us. Rogue’s launch trailer was posted yesterday. Unlike Rogue, which follows a Templar during the Seven Years’ War, Unity is set during the French Revolution and follows Arno, a man who turns to the brotherhood after the loss of a loved one. Players will be able to traverse an open-world Paris, taking down targets as they gain new skills, customize weapons, and earn new gear. Unity also includes four-player co-op missions that reward special co-op gear, and players will get to utilize unique co-op skills based around agility, force, or stealth.
