Ubisoft has released a new CG trailer for their upcoming game Assassin’s Creed: Unity, in which the lead protagonist, Arno, tries to save from beheading a newly key character (but non-playable), Elise.
Elise is an independent young noblewoman, who is looking to secure a place within the Templar dynasty during the turmoil of the French Revolution. However, she and Arno cross paths during Assassin’s Creed: Unity‘s story, and the pair forge an unlikely bond.
Elise will also star in a new Assassin’s Creed novel with the same title as the game, which will be written by Oliver Bowden and published by Penguin Random House in November 2014. The Assassin’s Creed Unity novel will be written from Elise’s perspective and will focus on the battle between the Templars and the Assassins and the roles that she and Arno play in that fight.
In addition, there will also be a high quality figurine of ‘Elise: The Fiery Templar’ available for purchase, in addition to the ‘Arno: The Fearless Assassin’ figurine. Both are designed by UbiCollectibles and fit together to form a diorama. Also, each one of them comes packaged with DLC for Assassin’s Creed: Unity and will be released on October 14th.
Assassin’s Creed: Unity is scheduled to launch for Xbox One, PS4 and PC worldwide on October 28th. Check out the trailer below.
