Assassin's Creed: Unity Gets a Female Character in New CG Trailer - Elise the Templar
Written Tuesday, July 29, 2014 By Richard WalkerView author's profile
Ubisoft has today released a new CG trailer for Assassin's Creed: Unity, in which lead protagonist Arno finds himself tearing through the crowded streets of Paris in a bid to prevent newly unveiled key (but non-playable) character, Elise, from being beheaded.
An independent young noblewoman, Elise 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.
In addition to the new CG trailer, there's also news on a new Assassin's Creed: Unity paperback novel by author Oliver Bowden. Published by Penguin Random House, the Unity novelisation will continue Bowden's work on Assassin's Creed books, which have sold 3 million copies to date. The book will be available in November.
And that's not all. 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. Each also comes packaged with DLC for Assassin's Creed: Unity and will release on October 14th.
Assassin's Creed: Unity is due to launch for Xbox One, PS4 and PC worldwide on October 28th. You'll find the trailer, an image showing the Elise figurine and some new screens below.
