Assassin's Creed Unity trailer introduces Elise

With Assasssin's Creed Unity set to touch down in three months, Ubisoft is ready to reveal another of the game's central characters. With that in mind, it's time to meet Elise, a young woman seeking to rise through the Templar order and one of main character Arno's most unlikely allies.

The video below offers an introduction to this new character, as Elise finds herself at the wrong end of the guillotine. Sensing injustice about to go down, Arno comes to her rescue, leading to a partnership that will span across the French Revolution. It's a fairly notable addition to the cast, coincidentally coming in the wake of Ubisoft coming under fire for not featuring enough central female characters in this latest AC installment.

Assassin's Creed Unity will hit PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 on October 28.
