"She's also getting her own spin-off novel."

... not sure if serious. >__>

@mikaelboogart: From the press release:

"Elise will also be featured in a new paperback, also titled “Assassin’s Creed Unity,” by Oliver Bowden from Penguin Random House. The story examines an era when the divide between the rich and poor is at its most extreme, and a nation is tearing itself apart. Told from Elise’s perspective, “Assassin’s Creed Unity” follows her and Arno as they are drawn into the centuries-old battle between the Assassins and Templars. In a world with dangers more deadly than they could ever have imagined, they must fight to avenge all they have lost. “Assassin’s Creed Unity” builds on Bowden’s past Assassin’s Creed novels with millions sold to-date."

For a company that said that playable female characters were to much effort they sure did put a lot of effort into a pointless cinematic.

@alex: Oh fergodsakes that's hilarious. :D

Posted by joshwent

Hmm. Nice CG, tone, and cinematography as always, but that didn't so much "introduce" this new character as it did show Arno Asscreeding around a bunch again with a lady that just appears at the end.

There'll probably be 30 more trailers before launch, so I guess they gotta start slow?

Posted by altairre

@alex: I bet they're all really good.

Posted by Vossome

But was she super-hard to animate? I'll bet yes, like, double the work, right?

Posted by Rasmoss

Eye candy. Check.

Posted by BeyondStrange

I think this trailer looks all right, but I am still curious about when they will finally announce the last gen only game.

Of course, how many trailers there will be for this game will soon get repetitive. Almost as repetitive as how many of the same "there will be hundreds of trailers for this game" and "women are so hard to animate" jokes will be in this comment section.

The trailer was fine until the last 10 seconds. Uggggghhhhhhhhh......

I'll admit it is pretty cool music, i'd never heard of Woodkid outside of these AC trailers. They're pretty good at setting the mood.

Posted by ComradeSolar

The most important part of the trailer was learning that Antoine Lavoisier is (most likely) a character in this game.

Posted by ADAMWD

@joshwent: Sadly, I'd bet the over on 30 trailers by release.

Posted by BlueFroman

So was Elise in a cloak because she is a female character, therefore to hard to animate?

Posted by Bombzinski

Wood, kid, indeed

Posted by krabboss

Wow, they managed to animate a woman! Good job!

Couldn't just use her animations for a playable one? No? Okay...

Posted by Veektarius

Unfortunately, the inclusion of a woman character does not make this significantly different from previous entries that I have not enjoyed. Let me play as a templar, female or otherwise, and I'll think about it.

THE EXPLOSIVE CHEMICAL REVOLUTION MISSION

Posted by Jimbot

@krabboss: Let's not get nuts, now. Such a thing would cost Ubisoft billions! I mean, how many people do you think are working on this game? Thousands?!

Edited by Itwastuesday

i'm not sure i can buy this game because if i buy another assassin's creed game and then complain about it... it's like, fooled me 3 times at this point

LoL it's almost like, a thousand people sit in front of one computer and all animate a single file simultaneously! Thats how it works right?

EDIT: That aside, this is yet another great trailer. Revelations for all it's faults was a decent game but it had probably the best CGI trailer out of the entire franchise. Also call me a sucker for cheesy romance but a relationship between an assassin and a templar seems like a pretty cool idea to me.

I feel like we need a dramatic reading of this on Bombing in the AM, much like Jeff's much loved reading of the Perfect Dark: Initial Vector.

"They can afford to give her her own novel, but can't afford to animate her as a playable character?" is what I would be asking if I was in the habit of expressing obvious opinions...

I came to this trailer to check on all the "but she is a woman... they lie to us" comments.

Thanks for delivering, community...

.. oh god. The chemical revolution mission. I need it. One of the most tragic moments of French history, that brilliant chemist being killed by the revolutionaries. :c

Posted by manbot47

how did they get the man power to add females into this game?

Posted by cloudnineboya

@mooseymcman: Really i'll have to look them up. all ive seen is CGI trailers.

Edited by deerokus

The spelling of the main character's name in this game annoys me. Should be Arnaud, surely? Arno is an Italian river. :(

MEDIA TRANSCENDENCE BULLSHIT

Careful in these comments, you might trip over everyone else who's rushing to make the same joke.

Before I read the comments I thought you might have been exaggerating... boy was I wrong.

Posted by angrywookie29

I just really can't get into the design of the new assassin, not sure what it is that is bothering me so much. He's so skinny, and his clothes look too flimsy. I don't know, but I'm not feeling this guy...

“The spelling of Arno, A-R-N-O, is an older French/Germanic, I believe Frankish variation, of the name. It’s not as common as Arnaud but you still see it occasionally. It comes back to Arno’s family history. His family is a very old one and they’ve been Assassins for a very long time so we wanted to give him a slightly more antiquated name. Also, the phonetic spelling makes it easier to pronounce.”

Great cinematic trailer, Dat Templar Cross dawg.

Posted by petethepanda

What a jarring edit in the music leading into the final shot. Wonder if the trailer originally ended with the slash and given recent events they went "oh shit, we should not end the trailer like this." (Or it's just an unusually horrible cut.)

Posted by Bernoulli

This shit got me excited.

Posted by xenolon

Better late than never, Ubi.

Posted by xenolon

@bluefroman: Yes. It took many, many, many more person hours to animate a female character in a cloak, which is why it wasn't included in the original announcement. Twice as much (no!) three times as much time.

Edited by Elwoodan

They should get the Pride, Prejudice, and Zombies guy to write 'A Tale of Two Creeds' or something.

Ok, reasons are good. It was really bugging me, and considering that the Arno flows through Florence, Italy, I kept thinking maybe it was some reference/connection to Ezio.

I've always liked the female characters of AC games, most of them anyways.

How does assassin's creed manage to be one of the most promising but worst games ever created? I could probably go on a diatribe as I have played all of the games and been completely underwhelmed. Do not get me wrong - we are completely ignoring that assassin's creed 4 black flag is an assassin's creed game. We are also ignoring the fact that 40-50% of assassin's creed 4 black flag was abhorrent (THE ASSASSINS CREED ELEMENTS) .

I bought the first game, I bought the second game, I skipped the third game, and I bought the fourth game. The first game was majestic and gorgeous and it was like wow I don't have a intrusive UI and I can see super far and this game really shows the system's strengths but then you get to the town and the entire thing goes to shit. The first thing that happened to me was I was riding my horse into a town and a guard was like "HEEEYYYYY let us not ride that horse, you are playing assassin's creed after all" as he slapped a no-fun-allowed sticker on me. I continued traversing the world, climbing towers, and granted I got past maybe 2 towns at the most but it felt like there was some sort of demon eating all the fun straight out of the game. My eyes went blank and I don't remember any more of the experience of that game.

Assassin's Creed 2 was bought for me as some sort of gift. I also was given Uncharted 2 at the same time and well I don't know how to break it to you but there is no level of relevance between those two titles. I played through Uncharted 2 in literally one 6-8 hour sitting. I then fired up Assassin's Creed 2 and I absolutely loved buying things and building up my base but wow the combat was awful, and no surprise that the rest of the game was obnoxious climbing (not good controls) and picking up useless collectible items. Some of the worst offenses video games can have are essentially items with no redeeming reward (or at least progression towards a reward) that makes collecting 50-100 of them POSSIBLY have some sort of "reward" asinine. As an adult time is a lot more valuable of a commodity so I was finding that the majority of both of the games were a waste of time. The other offense besides useless rewards/collectibles is not good controls - a game can be generally bad but if the controls suck and the combat is not enjoyable why continue? I don't believe the story line is worth any mention, which is a completely different topic for a completely different day (I think telephone was played during the meeting for the "over arcing" story here and got grossly turned into this atrocity of a plot). Long story short - I enjoyed building up my base but once that was done I had to play Assassin's Creed 2. There were much better games to play as evidenced by the fact I purchased Uncharted 2 the same day. I also have been a computer gamer my entire life so had much better selections for games so I forgot about Assassin's Creed.

I didn't play revelations and I never got a chance to play what I have heard is the wonderful brotherhood. Assassin's Creed 3 looked amazing from all the videos I had seen. I am from a snowy place and it brought me back to much of my childhood watching people run around in the snow and having a good time. I loved the running from the trees and the archery of the deer! Amazing. I can't wait to play this game. I let the game come out and I Read the reviews. I skipped it. I saw the quick look here and didn't feel it had much going for it. I watched some other reviews and decided to just skip it.

Assassin's Creed 4 Black Flag came out and it was the same time I built a new computer. I actually built a computer just because of Black Flag being the best looking game at the time (and still kinda is, game looks amazing!). When I had built the computer all I did was play Black Flag at first. I got to about 27%, and do you know why? It was still an Assassin's Creed game. I place a lot of emphasis on combat in video games and unfortunately this series has always just been a huge let down. Even the ship combat felt repetitive. I just can not stand the melee combat and also the reactionary combat is not as fun as something where I get to choose my attacks and no one ripostes/parries/does some lame combat mechanic. I am hoping they let you play a female character from bell to bell but it seems like there are going to be multiple characters so there won't be as much emphasis on this one.

And people continue to flock to this game to sound off as if they know how games are made...

All predictable internet raving aside, this game interests me and I'm excited to see how it turns out.
