Ubisoft have released a brand new CGI trailer for Assassin’s Creed Unity, the trailer focuses on the main character Arno but also introduces “The Fiery Templar,” Elise. The CG trailer follows Arno as he rushes across Paris in an attempt to stop the beheading of Elise.
Elise is described as “an independent young noblewoman” who is “determined to secure her place in the Templar dynasty amidst the chaos of the French Revolution” Ubisoft have also revealed the launch of a novel by Oliver Bowden which focuses on Elise’s side of the Unity story, in an era when the divide between the rich and poor is at its most extreme, and a nation is tearing itself apart, which will be released along side the game this October.
It was recently revealed that after a tragic event early in his life, Arno was brought up by a prominent Templar. Looks like we will be finding out more about the Templar Order in the new game.
Assassins Creed Unity was announced earlier this year along side rumours of a second game, Assassin’s Creed Comet, for last-gen consoles. Unity will also be the first game in the series to add in co-op, allowing up to four Assassins to roam the streets of Paris together, the game is also using the full power of the current-gen consoles to create a living breathing Paris during one of the bloodiest periods of modern history.
Assassins Creed Unity will be available on PC, PS4 and Xbox One on October 28th. To see where I want the series to go next click here.
