Assassin’s Creen: Unity has inspired a new live-action parkour sequence in which four assassins converge on two guards.

The video comes via devinsupertramp, one of the best-known parkour YouTubers.

This latest promo is only one of a number of parkour videos Ubisoft has helped produce. The publisher now employs a chief parkour officer, of all things. Check out previous videos for Assassin’s Creed 3, Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag and Watch Dogs.

Does anybody else find the mainstreaming of parkour really boring? Like, half the fun is that parkour allows you to go places nobody else sees, and where you’re not supposed to be. Official courses and permits and permissions sort of ruin that a bit for me.

Plus, it never looks as cool in real life as in the fantasy version video games have gotten us used to. Oh well! You can live out your fantasies when Assassin’s Creed: Unity hits PC, PS4, and Xbox One in late October.
