Leonard Cohen's You Want It Darker provides the soundtrack of the trailer for Assassin's Creed Origins, the latest entry in the Assassin's Creed video game series (from its first release in 2007 through Sept 2016, the series has sold over 100 million copies, making it one of the highest selling video game franchises of all time). The response from fans on social media and even the gaming press has been enthusiastic:
"If there is a cooler song to play with a video game trailer, I haven't heard it. Everything about it just worked. It even accentuated all the mysticism being included in the upcoming Origins game. If you're curious about the song as much as I am it's, "You Want It Darker" - Leonard Cohen." Cinelinx.com
