Assassin’s Creed Unity, one of two games in the Creed franchise being released on Nov. 11, is looking to introduce a host of new ideas to the series while also bringing the game back to its assassinating roots. A conflicting set of goals? Well, it kind of is, but Ubisoft has stepped in to explain the upcoming additions to the Creed universe.

After last week’s puzzling time-hopping trailer, publisher and developer Ubisoft has stepped in to round up Unity‘s biggest features with a new trailer.

Included in the trailer is an explanation for how the cooperative gameplay will integrate into the experience, as well as providing a crash course on protagonist Arno and the game’s setting—France during the French Revolution.

Whether playing alone or with friends, one of the game’s most intriguing elements is the recently revealed time anomalies. This new trailer sheds a little light on exactly how they’ll factor into the gameplay, and hints that Arno may visit more than just World War II-era Paris.

How these time jumps play into the game’s overall story, though, remains a thankful mystery, leaving something to be discovered about the plot device when the game actually debuts.

While the game in full won’t debut until next week, Ubisoft is offering a sneak peek at the game Friday, Nov. 7 at 3 p.m. EST with a live stream of footage and interviews with the developers.
