Trailer number 17,348 for Assassin’s Creed Unity is a co-op video featuring a rather mixed set of celebrity impressions.
The trailer has David Attenborough, Alan Carr, Morgan Freeman, and Arnold Schwarzenegger playing Assassin’s Creed Unity in co-op. Although it’s obviously not actually them, and the joyfully rubbish impressions make that rather clear. This is a long way from Christopher Walkenthroughs – the Arnie impression sounds like something I’d do, and the Morgan Freeman impression is bad enough that it took me awhile to realise who it was meant to be.
Nonetheless, “realistic impressions of celebrities” isn’t really the point. “Showing off four-player co-op in a unique manner” is, and it definitely manages that! Which is quite impressive, thinking about it. I mean, if you think about how many Assassin’s Creed Unity trailers we’ve seen, the fact that Ubisoft have managed something a bit new is amazing.
Assassin’s Creed Unity is due out on 11 November. You can watch Not Arnie, Not Alan Carr, Not Morgan Freeman, and Not Attenborough playing it below.Related to this article
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
