The latest video for Assassin's Creed Unity, a CG trailer released today by publisher Ubisoft, reveals a new character named Elise.
Arno Dorian, the main character in Unity, scampers across Parisian rooftops and sprints through a mob in a large public square to stop French government officials from beheading Elise. According to Ubisoft, she is a central character in the game's story, a young noblewoman who is keen to establish herself within the Templar order. Although she and Arno stand on opposite sides of an age-old conflict, a bond forms between them.
Elise will also star in a new Assassin's Creed novel with the same title as the game, a book by Oliver Bowden that will be published in paperback by Penguin Random House. Written from Elise's perspective, the book Assassin's Creed Unity will focus on the battle between the Templars and Assassins, and the roles that she and Arno play in that fight.
Assassin's Creed Unity is set for release Oct. 28 on PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One. For more, check out our E3 preview.
