A new CGI trailer for Assassin’s Creed Unity has been released featuring the game’s protagonist Arno “racing against time” through the streets of Paris to save young noblewoman Elise. She is central to the game’s plot, per Ubisoft.


Elise is a “independent young noblewoman determined to secure her place in the Templar dynasty,” says her brief bio.

The firm also announced that a new novel penned by Oliver Bowden based on Assassin’s Creed Unity will be released by Penguin Random House. It builds on Bowden’s past Assassin’s novels and is told from Elise’s perspective.

A figurine dubbed “Elise: The Fiery Templar” will also be made available as part of the Ubicollectibles set. It can also be assembled into a diorama with the “Arno: The Fearless Assassin” figurine.

Additional digital content for Assassin’s Creed Unity is also included with the purchase of this collectible.

Assassin’s Creed Unity will be released worldwide on October 28. The Assassin’s Creed Unity novel will be available in November.

“Elise: The Fiery Templar” figurine will be released on October 14.
