Assassin's Creed: Unity

Ubisoft has released a new trailer for Assassin’s Creed: Unity introducing “Elise the Fiery Templar,” a new character “central” to the game’s story.

Elise is an independent young noblewoman determined to secure her place in the Templar dynasty amidst the chaos of the French Revolution. Her quests leads her to cross paths with Arno, Assassin’s Creed: Unity‘s master assassin, with whom she establishes an unlikely bond. In the video, you’ll see Arno race against time to rescue Elise from a beheading.

A new novel by Oliver Bowden from Penguin Random House, also titled Assassin’s Creed: Unity, will also feature Elise. Here’s a story summary:

The story examines an era when the divide between the rich and poor is at its most extreme, and a nation is tearing itself apart. Told from Elise’s perspective, “Assassin’s Creed Unity” follows her and Arno as they are drawn into the centuries-old battle between the Assassins and Templars. In a world with dangers more deadly than they could ever have imagined, they must fight to avenge all they have lost. “Assassin’s Creed Unity” builds on Bowden’s past Assassin’s Creed novels with millions sold to-date.

Watch the video below. View a new set of screenshots and artwork at the gallery. Assassin’s Creed: Unity is due out worldwide for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on October 28.
