Now we see the benfit of setting your game during the American Revolutionary War: it lends you carte blanche to create trailers to stir American blood around the time of Independence Day, all to the sanctimonious mournful sounds of John Newton’s Amazing Grace.

At least those of us for whom Independence Day means little can feast our eyes on another stunning trailer which once more offers a brief glimpse of war on the high seas as well as the familiar acrobatics of AC’s land-based heroics.
