This guy's a big fan of crowd surfing

You’ll see more ridiculous hats in this three minute Assassin’s Creed: Unity trailer than at a royal wedding. The uber-expensive mood piece demonstrates the upcoming PlayStation 4 title’s co-operative dynamic, while also showing a Roy Hodgson look-a-like get mauled by a horde of angry French folk with pitchforks. It’s not too dissimilar to what’s going to happen at the World Cup later this week, except it’ll be Italian superstar Andrea Pirlo wielding daggers at his frustratingly blessed feet.

The French Revolution-set sequel’s due out on 28th October, and you can check out more gameplay footage through here and through here. Assuming that you like what you see, it’s worth noting that a Collector’s Edition has also been announced, featuring a soundtrack, art book, music box, and a 16” statue of the protagonist. Two additional single player missions – ‘The Science Mission’ and ‘The Chemical Revolution’ – will also be included, while various additional weapons are up for grabs depending on where you pre-order. Duh.
