Assassin’s Creed Unity ‘Bastille Day’ Trailer, and Some Little-Known Facts of the French Revolution

Assassin’s Creed Unity Bastille Day trailer releases

Bastille Day. For those of you who just stared blankly at your screen upon seeing those words – that’s France’s national holiday. It’s a celebration marking the storming of the Bastille (a fortress/prison used by King Louis XVI to make his enemies disappear) by the people of Paris in 1789 and one of the most important events of the French Revolution. That makes this the perfect time to take a closer look at Assassin’s Creed Unity’s setting (as if we needed a reason). Turns out, a lot of the things we thought we knew about this tumultuous time in history aren’t quite accurate.

Two New ‘Dragon Age: Inquisition’ Videos Get Bloody Exciting

Not one but TWO walkthrough videos from BioWare

During E3 2014 last month, Xbox Wire gave you a hands-on preview of BioWare’s upcoming medieval action-role-playing game, ‘Dragon Age: Inquisition’. But we know that’s not nearly enough Dragon Age, so we’ve got something more for you: Full video walkthroughs of the excellent E3 demo, hosted by creative director Mike Laidlaw.  In the first video, Laidlaw leads you through Inquisition’s Lake Luthias, showing off a single region that is bigger than the entire map from the original ‘Dragon Age: Origins’. It culminates in a battle between a mage and the High Dragon that perfectly shows off the game’s cutting-edge graphics and beautiful visual aesthetic.
