New Assassin’s Creed Unity Trailer Introduces Female Templar

Ubisoft has released a new trailer for Assassin's Creed Unity, providing a nice introduction to one of the new characters that will play a key role in the game. Her name is Elise and she's a Templar. That's right, a Templar. You know, one of the "bad guys."

"As an independent young noblewoman, Elise is determined to secure her place in the Templar dynasty amidst the chaos of the French Revolution," Ubisoft's description of her explains. "Her quest leads her to cross paths with Arno and establish an unlikely bond with him."

According to the developer, Elise will have a "central" role in the story of Assassin's Creed Unity. I don't know about you, but I can't wait to see how her relationship with the main character, Arno, plays out when the game launches this October.
