As detailed in a press release published on Tuesday, July 29, bigwig publisher Ubisoft has released a new CGI trailer for its upcoming addition to the Assassin’s Creed franchise, Assassin’s Creed Unity, which features a new female character, named Elise.
According to the press release, Elise is central to Assassin’s Creed Unity’s story, and she is described as an independent young noblewoman who is determined to secure her own place among the Templars during the French Revolution.
In conjunction with this new trailer, Ubisoft has also revealed a new novel that’s based on Assassin’s Creed Unity, written by Oliver Bowden. Entitled “Elise: The Fiery Templar”, this paperback novel, which is slated to release in November, tells a story from Elise’s own perspective of how she and Arno, Assassin’s Creed Unity’s protagonist, are drawn into the fight between the Assassins and the Templars.
It was not mentioned in the press release whether or not Elise will be a playable character.
Assassin’s Creed Unity was announced back in March, and posters depicting pre-order bonuses were leaked a few months ago. The game is slated to release worldwide on Tuesday, October 28 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Ubisoft has also reassured that it’s trying not to delay the game’s PC release.
