Okay, I think I might be cheating here. I say this because I truly believe I’ve talked about this trailer before? I’ve certainly talked about Assassin’s Creed before, that’s a given. But the most memorable Assassin’s Creed trailer for me was the UK Launch Trailer for Assassin’s Creed III. Now, you may ask how I’ve even seen this trailer, considering I live in North America. Well, for some time I was subscribed to Ubisoft’s YouTube channel and saw all of the tasty trailers coming down the pipeline. Certainly helped raise the hype of a young lad like myself. It was here that I stumbled upon the most incredible video game trailer I had ever laid eyes on.

By now, everyone knows the song “Radioactive” by Imagine Dragons. Most of us probably hear it in our nightmares, but for me, I never grew tired of its constant radio plays. I’m not kidding when I say constant, either. This song still gets air time, and it’s been around for over eight years. Personally, though, this song fills me to the brim with nostalgia, as this song was set to the backdrop of the American Revolution in the UK Launch Trailer for Assassin’s Creed III, and from then on, my heart connected the two.

I like to say I discovered “Radioactive,” and I’m damn happy I did. Not only did the song blow me away, but the action and the glimpses of AC3‘s story kept me hanging on with bated breath. I was just stunned by the colors and the animations, which looked so different than previous Assassin’s Creed games. My body was not prepared for this game, and when it was finally released, it changed my whole world. I’ll never forget the feelings this trailer instilled within me, and whenever I hear Imagine Dragons’ infamous anthem, I’ll metaphorically pour one out for this awesome trailer.
