New Assassin’s Creed Unity Trailer Introduces Elise + Announces Additional Elise Centric Media
Ubisoft have today released a brand new CGI trailer for Assassin’s Creed Unity, highlighting a scene from the game where Arno races against time (and the dense / populated streets of Paris) in order to prevent the beheading of Elise. Elise is a character central to the Assassin’s Creed Unity storyline, being described as an independent young noblewoman who is eager to secure her place in the Templar dynasty amidst the chaos of the French Revolution. Her quest leads her to cross paths with Arno and establish an unlikely bond with him.
Assassin’s Creed Unity is set for release worldwide on October 28th, 2014 on current generation gaming platforms (PS4, XB ONE, PC).
This wasn’t the only announcement to come from Ubisoft today regarding the franchise. Ubisoft will be offering fans a chance to discover more from the world of Assassin’s Creed Unity in a new novel by Oliver Bowden. This new paperback from Penguin Random House builds on Bowden’s past Assassin’s novels – with 3 million copies sold to date — and 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, the book follows she and Arno as they are drawn into the centuries-old battle between the Assassins and the Templars – a world with dangers more deadly than they could ever have imagined — and fight to avenge all they have lost.
Those who like figures can also pre-order Elise: The Firey Templar”, a high quality figurine designed by Ubicollectibles that features Elise as she peers through her gun sights and hides a sword behind her back. This collectible can be assembled into a diorama with the “Arno: The Fearless Assassin” figurine. Additional, unspecified, digital content for Assassin’s Creed Unity also is included with the purchase of this collectible.
