Assassin’s Creed Unity: Time Anomaly Trailer Sheds New Light on Contemporary Subplot


Earlier this week, Ubisoft quietly dropped another new trailer for Assassin’s Creed Unity. The Time Anomaly trailer gave players their first hint at the contemporary storyline that will carry over into the game. In the previous games, Desmond Miles was plugged into the Animus, which detected the “genetic memories” of his ancestors. Desmond Miles is out of the picture, so the main franchise story will likely move in the direction of another character’s bloodline. The previous games featured the ancestors of Desmond Miles, and Arno Dorian is not Desmond’s ancestor. The brand new trailer offers the first look at the present-day timeline. It appears that the stakes of using the Animus have changed. The Time Anomaly trailer offers some exciting new wrinkles for the Assassin’s Creed unity storyline.

The voice of an unknown female character warns an unnamed Assassin that the French Revolution simulation is collapsing. The Assassin is likely the main player or character and the descendant of Arno Dorian. In Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, the main player character was never really named. I assume that could be the case here as well. The sequence in the Time Anomaly trailer shows the simulation of 18th Century Paris collapsing and turning into what looks like World War I-era Paris. The Assassin tries to outrun the simulation collapse and jumps into what appears to be a gap in the Animus simulation. The, the main Assassin player appears to land in Paris, France in the early 20th century where the main character is dodging a subway train. The scene shifts to the Assassin climbing the Eiffel Tower, still wearing his Arno Dorian garb. The Assassin is then attacked by what appears to be a WWII-era fighter plane, with blazing machine guns. He takes it down with a mounted machine gun on the tower. Some type of strange energy phenomenon or a lightning strike is occurring above the tower. An alarm sounds, and a zoom shot shows zeppelins. Could the player have landed in World War I during the zeppelin raids of Paris?

The trailer is short, quick and intense. It is hard to glean too many details about what is going on in the Time Anomaly trailer without speculation. However, the implications of the scenario are now a lot more exciting. According to Ubisoft, the phenomenon depicted in the trailer is a Time Anomaly, a new feature for franchise. This means that parts of the game could suddenly jam the player into other eras in time, including Paris during World War I. The new trailer definitely throws a curve ball in what to expect for Unity. Based on the video, there will be a lot more surprises. I cannot wait to see what else Unity has in store.

Assassin’s Creed Unity hits the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC on November 11.

Taylor Swift Unhappy After Princeton Review Misquotes Her Lyrics in SAT Test Paper

The popstar of several multi-million dollar hits and multi-million dollarlegs, Taylor Swift is not one to be messed with. The Princeton Review found that out the hard way after they published Tay Tay's lyrics as an example of bad grammar on a SAT practice test.

To be fair, they were trying to make the point that pop songs are where grammar goes to die and also cited other pop singers such as Katy Perry, Justin Timberlake, Lady Gaga and Kesha.

The fiercely loyal Tay Tay fans were not likely to let this go by and Tumblr user Nava who was apparently having ' an amazing time studying for SAT' when she spotted this, posted a snapshot with the caption, " .... it isn't a pop song it's a country pop song so take that Princeton review Taylor is grammar queen so shhhhhh.."

Unluckily for the Princeton Review however they misquoted the lyrics of the song Fifteen. The question paper wanted students to grammatically correct, "Somebody tells you they love you, …

Jessica Lange Is Definitely Done With American Horror Story But Look Who's Checking in...

Good news and bad news, American Horror Story fans.

Queen Jessica Lange confirmed at tonight's PaleyFest panel that she will not return for American Horror Story: Hotel.

"Yes, I'm done," she told the audience, "We've had a great run here. I have absolutely loved doing these four characters that I've had the opportunity to play. In all the madness, I've loved the writers, my actors, Ryan and the whole, I mean, insanity of it, shooting here, shooting in new orleans, the stories, everything."

While that is definitely not music to our ears, the panel did offer up a few happier Hotel tidbits, like the fact that White Collar star Matt Bomer will be joining the show for the season, along with 30 Rock star Cheyenne Jackson. Both Bomer and Jackson are pretty familiar with Ryan Murphy and co, having both guest starred on Glee. Bomer also appeared in American Horror Story: Freak Show as a prostitute who was brutally murdered by Dandy (Finn Witrock).
