“What we’re trying to do is make sure the [Assassin’s Creed] DNA is respected,” Aymar said in an interview with the Ubisoft blog. “On top of all of that, we’re making sure we’re able to move forward on new inspirations and ideas.

“We want everything to feel legit. As you saw with the trailer, we think that part of the job has been done in a really nice way at the moment.”

This action-packed second trailer and a couple of new one-sheets are below, featuring X-Men: Apocalypse‘s Michael Fassbender as two different characters: Death Row inmate Cal Lynch, and his enigmatic ancestor Aguilar de Nerha.

The movie also stars Marion Cotillard, Jeremy Irons, Michael K. Williams, and Ariane Labed

One Ubisoft executive said the company is not expecting to make a lot of money from Assassin’s Creed. “It is a lot more a marketing thing. It’s also good for the image of the brand,” European boss Alain Corre said.

“We have our core fans, but what we would like is to put this franchise in front of a lot more people who, maybe, will then pick up future Assassin’s Creed games,” he added.

Assassin’s Creed is set to hit theaters on December 21, 2016
