Meet Elise, the young Templar woman seeking to make her own way in her organization in the midst of the chaotic French Revolution. Assassin’s Creed has always been rich with unique, fascinating characters – Assassins, Templars and historical figures. Amid the brutality and behind-the-scenes war raging during Assassin’s Creed Unity, Master Assassin Arno Dorian and this mysterious woman meet and form a rather unlikely bond. Get your first look at Elise in this new CG trailer.

 
In addition to the game, Elise will star in the next Assassin’s Creed novel by Oliver Bowden, also titled Assassin’s Creed Unity. This tale follows Elise and is told from her point of view as she and Arno are pulled into the feud between the Templars and the Assassins. Every story has multiple sides. Expand your adventure and see the world from two very different perspectives.

Paris, 1789. The French Revolution turns a once-magnificent city into a place of terror and chaos. Its cobblestoned streets run red with the blood of commoners who dare to rise up against an oppressive aristocracy. Yet as the nation tears itself apart, a young man named Arno will embark upon an extraordinary journey to expose the true powers behind the Revolution. His pursuit will throw him into the middle of a ruthless struggle for the fate of a nation, and transform him into a true Master Assassin.

Doesn't it kind of piss you off that Troy baker is trying to give credit to Ashley Johnson for this trailer? As if her little rant calling out Ubisoft is the reason why we are getting this female character in the game? I didn't even work on this game and its pissing me off.

Ubisoft needs to make a trailer showing off exactly how the co-op works. Make it clear that no matter what, you are always playing the main character in Unity since co-op takes place in the main campaign.

I find it completely unfair that Ubisoft is getting called out on not having a female option in Unity. I don’t see other titles getting bashed like this. Where is the option to play a female Joel in The last of Us? You can’t even pick to play as a female in the MP, it’s random. And when you’re customizing your character, all you see is a male model. You don’t see Johnson calling out Naughty Dog.

If Ubisoft is going to take all this heat on not adding a female option to Unity then I believe every game that’s coming out from now on should be called out on not having a female option for its single player campaign. Can’t wait to play as female Nathan Drake in Uncharted 4.
