Earlier this week the trailer for Naughty Dog’s long awaited game Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End was finally released.
As per, the award winning game developer did not disappoint with the trailer hitting all the right marks for fans. Except there was a slight problem with the trailer’s content, more specifically it turned out some of the footage used was from another game.
Accusations ran riot on social media until Naughty Dog themselves admitted that they had indeed used some artwork from Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed. The detail had been spotted by Ubisoft employee Azaïzia Aymar who took to social media and declared:
“I get the ‘thief’ title now!”
Ouch! Turns out it was all an innocent mistake and Naughty Dog apologised for the error by releasing the following statement:
“In our eagerness to get the story trailer out we made a regrettable mistake and didn’t thoroughly vet the art work used for an in game painting. We’ve already updated the trailer. We hold all artistry in high regard and take full responsibility for having allowed this to happen. We want to sincerely apologise to everyone at Ubisoft, the Assassin’s Creed team, the original artist, and our fans.”
We doubt that this ‘mix-up’ will have any detrimental effect on the launch day sales of the game.
Here’s a lavish cinematic trailer for Ubisoft’s forthcoming title Assassin’s Creed: Rogue, due out in November for the PS3 and Xbox 360.
The premise of the game centres around your character Shay Patrick Cormac, an Irish Assassin who now acts as a hunter of Assassins. Its understood his story will be linked to the next gen game Assassin’s Creed Unity due out in October.
The excellent NSFW animated short was developed for Ubisoft by horror director Rob Zombie and illustrated by The Walking Dead co-creator Tony Moore and is unsurprisingly extremely gory and violent.
It briefly dpeicts the bloody history behind the French revolution neatly setting up the premise for Ubisoft’s forthcoming game Assassin’s Creed Unity. Will this short make you run out and buy the game? Probably not. But it will make you yearn for a history teacher like Rob Zombie.
To promote their forthcoming game Assassins Creed: Unity at this year’s Comic Con in San Diego developers Ubisoft have constructed a parkour driven obstacle course for people to use, allowing them to get the real Assassins Creed experience.
As the video shows above you’ll be able to traverse, and run across obstacles using just your raw athleticism to conquer each section of the course. There’s just one hitch, the vast majority of those who will take part will likely be gamers…so, yeah…raw athleticism.
