While the trailer is fully CGI and doesn’t show any real game mechanics, you definitely get a feel for the setting, the period, and possibly a few new moves for our protagonist, Arno. The assassin’s uniform has a clear “French” feel to it, reminding me in some ways of the gear from the film, Brotherhood of the Wolf. And while the movement of Arno seems to be in line with former games, you will see a couple hints of new city-traversing stunts.
In this trailer, you’ll watch Arno race through the streets in an attempt to rescue “a character central to Assassin’s Creed Unity’s story”, Elise. She is determined to make her place in Templar history during the French Revolution (as is confirmed in the trailer by her defiant and confident posture and fancy Templar necklace). The last few moments of the trailer promises that her relationship with Arno may be a complicated one and she is just as dangerous a Templar as any we have seen.
In addition to now being able to order the collector figurine “Elise: the Fiery Templar” (that actually can be assembled into a diorama with “Arno: the Fearless Assassin”), you may also now purchase the next book in Oliver Bowden’s continuing success of AC novels entitled, “Assassin’s Creed Unity” which tells the story from Elise’s perspective. Visit Ubisoft’s official store for details.
Assassin’s Creed: Unity is due out on October 28th for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Now watch the exciting trailer below and let the speculations begin!
