Developer Ubisoft has published a new gameplay trailer for its upcoming free-running game, Assassin's Creed Unity. The gameplay trailer shows off several assassinations, 18th-century Paris, and the army of the French monarchy.

A man, probably the main character Arno, narrates the video and describes his motives behind participating in the infamous French Revolution. You'll be playing as Arno in Unity, leading rebels in their fight against the French elite and their struggle to establish a republic. "For centuries my countrymen have suffered under the ignorant and decadent aristocracy," the man says. "So I will wage my silent war in the shadows; the time has come for revolution, for those to unite and make history."

The trailer also shows off some more of the nice-looking environments and characters, and the smooth animations that Ubisoft demonstrated at this year's E3 conference.

If you haven't played an Assassin's Creed game for quite some time, Ubisoft recently said that the game is the "best starting point since Assassin's Creed 1." The developer also said that it's not abandoning last-gen players yet. Keep an eye on GameSpot for news about Assassin's Creed plans on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
