John Newton is the man who wrote the spiritual hymn, Amazing Grace (I almost wrote Amazing Spiderman), and it is featured in this latest trailer for Assassin's Creed III. I think it adds a nice touch, making the game seem a little more somber and serious. This reminds me of when the BioShock Infinite trailer rolled out with that old, spiritual song in it, and I ended up loving that as well.
I am not even a "spiritual" person, but I love when these trailers throw that old music in there.
How do you feel about Amazing Grace being played in the trailer?
