Has it been long enough since your last Western Civ class that you've forgotten the nature of the French Revolution? Well, Assassin's Creed Unity is due out October 28th, and ignorance breeds a whole lot of sloppy assassins. Instead of breaking into a chateau with no idea why you need to stab the wigged fat guy eating all those chicken legs, why don't we take a look back to see what this particular conflict was all about.
Ubisoft has the cure for our ignorance. Below we have an animated short detailing the nature of the French Revolution by world renowned historian, Rob Zombie. Don't even think about it, just watch the movie.
WARNING: This film is extremely graphic, as you might expect from Mr. Zombie. Watch at your own discretion.
Leave it to the French to accurately depict one of the most significant changes in their nation's storied history.
Hopefully you can carry this knowledge into the field, so none of your buddies need to stand up and ask exactly why Wiggs McFatty needs to get shanked.
