Backstab Gets a Release Date and a New Trailer

Backstab, an Assassin’s Creed-flavored Gameloft game, is hitting the App Store this Thursday, June 23. They’ve also released a cool new trailer for the game, which you can watch below.

Backstab takes place in the olden days of the British Empire. You play as a sailor who is betrayed by the Navy and narrowly escapes death. Plenty of swashbuckling ensues, along with high-flying acrobatics and possibly even civilan casualties if you’re not careful about where you swing your cutlass.

We enjoyed our time with Backstab when we played it at E3 this year. In fact, we thought it looked better than any other game in their line-up, including March of Heroes, their upcoming Unreal-powered shooter. Expect Backstab to hit the App Store at 11pm EST on Wednesday, and to sell for about $6.99.
