A Public Service Announcement About ASSASSIN’S CREED: UNITY

Listen, we all make mistakes. On Monday, after Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed: Unity trailer played during Microsoft’s press conference, I tweeted the following:

Turns out, the premise of the joke was inherently flawed. Here’s how you can avoid embarrassing yourself on the internet or in front of a group of esteemed historians/colleagues at your next salon.
