You can’t argue that Ubisoft produces really great trailers for its games. That’s no different with the newest Assassin’s Creed Unity trailer featuring Assassin Arno Dorian running through the streets of Paris towards a town square where the French government is rapidly beheading criminals with its favored tool, the guillotine.
The CG-only trailer shows off Dorian’s acrobatic movement and combat before he reaches the guillotine and rescues Elise, a woman wearing a Templar cross. Whether she’s a spy for the Assassin’s Guild is unknown, but according to Polygon, Ubisoft states she’s central to Unity’s story.
Elise will also be featured as the main character in a book tie-in by Pengiun Random House where the story unfolds from her perspective.
Assassin’s Creed Unity will be available October 28 for PlayStation 4, Windows, and Xbox One.
