French gaming company Ubisoft and 20th Century Fox have finally outed the second trailer of their forthcoming Assassin’s Creed movie. And it looks pretty awesome.

As per the previous trailer, we track Michael Fassbender’s Callum Lynch through the movie’s time-fractured world. Tracing the footsteps of his forefather Aguilar through modern technology, Lynch seemingly learns that some can be trusted, some can’t and others can be stabbed with a pointy blade.

We’re not given much of the story here, but quite a bit of the movie’s footage is shown in the 120 second-long short.

Jumping between the present and past will be Assassin’s Creed’s primary mechanic it seems, while the likes of Marion Cotillard‘s Dr. Sophia Rikkin and antagonist Alan Rikkin (played by Jeremy Irons) rounds off a strong cast.

This trailer includes lots of stabbing, jumping, hoodie-wearing and a Spanish Inquisition mention, which likely no one expected. Seriously though, the focus on cinematography, stunts and incredibly well executed fight scenes does make this a strong trailer for the 21 December 2016 movie.

But will fans of the gaming series love the movie itself? Well, that’s the real question.

While some in the YouTube comments section already expect the movie’s visuals to be “downgraded” before it releases, form your own opinions by watching Ubisoft’s latest trailer below.
