Ive noticed in some of the gameplay trailers and walkthroughs they hav a depth of field effect shown during killcams. Particularly in the horizon trailer, but others as well and think I may have seen a hint of it in the new havana stealth walkthrough video, at the end when he dual assinates the guards by the ship with the cutlasses. Being a next gen game, I was wondering if this is only an edit made to make the game look good for advertising or if this is an actual effect were going to see in game? At least for next gen consoles and pc that is.

A lot of the angles and motion blur kill cams look pretty neat. :D

Probably because its a trailer. They usually do things like make everything at a cool angle and slo mo and stuff.

However, slo mo kills at the end of combat will likely make a return

Not sure, there was no slo-mo when he killed the guard in the cave. However, AC3 sometime glitched during the killcam effect to where it would zoom in on the kill but not slow down, and I believe Haytham had one animation that always behaved that way.
