Prepare for one-liners in Assassin’s Creed Unity

ACU 12

Assassin’s Creed Unity launches this month, and it’s promising to change the way we play Assassin’s Creed games. With all new dynamics and the joys of co-op, Unity plans to make full use of what the new generation consoles can deliver. The characters are also unique, and apparently quite witty.

In a new interview by Ubisoft themselves (which is basically just an opportunity for PR), Dan Jeanotte, the voice actor for Arno Dorian, explained a bit more about the character. Here is the video for those who want to watch:

Most of what Jeanotte says is what we’ve heard about Arno before. He’s basically a spoiled, selfish brat who has daddy issues and decides to join the assassins to make amends. However, what Jeanotte did add which makes me happy is that Arno is quite clever and has a whole bunch of one-liners that he throws in during or after assassinations. So he’s like the Terminator of the French Revolution?

There are still a couple videos floating around of leaked gameplay footage from Assassin’s Creed. Here’s what Geoff could rustle up from around the internet:


At least Arno sounds like a slightly more interesting protagonist for Assassin’s Creed. We know ACIII was a train wreck thanks to the most boring main character in history, and ACIV: Black Flag had basically no real story line or character. Hopefully Unity will include plenty of character and story, this could be Ubisoft’s chance to make the franchise feel new and fresh again, and a lovable character could make us all feel like we’re playing ACII/Brotherhood again.

    Is there some LAW that states that videogames are not allowed children or domestic pets? Or did the French eat them along with the frogs and snails? ๐Ÿ˜›

        Fallout 3 is the only game that I can remember wanting to knock the snot out of a rude little human. I suppose that’s problem right there. Its Unethical.

          I once spent over an hour trying to kill the children in Riverun in skyrim.
          I was pretty mad that no matter what I did to them, i couldnt kill them…

      if they added them, we wouldnt be able to kill them, and then we could complain about not being able to kill them.
      they didnt add them so we cant complain about them.
      sound logic.

      Just want to point out that there has been animals in previous games. Certainly in AC3 such as dogs and children. The children were extremely annoying though so maybe the French did decide to eat them.. I hope so :L
      But how do you know there’s none of the above in this game?

        I watched the youtube video. I saw 566684859 adults all milling about.
        In fact, the reason why I game is to get away from reality and humans. Playing a game that involves wading into a tsunami of people just defeats the object.

    Really? you just hit the next level of idiot, guessing you don’t know a good game when you see one, that’s right you’re a sheep looool, ACIV was perfect and AC3 was awesome, stop going on a bandwagon, sheep.

      I do agree that ACIV was amazing and had an awesome storyline; however, people make the argument that it had no real storyline because it didnt tie in with the rest of the storyline besides the weak link of the Kenway bloodline as the only tie to the other games. Next, I personally disagree with you on AC3. I played it through a few times and all I can say is that I wasnt impressed. The gameplay, I do admit, was nice and fluent and added welcome changes, but the story was lacking. It literally made large time jumps in the game that just made it seem that SO much more could have been there. The idea behind the story was wonderful and fresh but it just didnt hit me the way other games in the series did. Not only was it conaidered a trainwreck for the lacking story, but alsoartly for the frontier. Sure, it was a nice, open world area with plenty of great vistas and small activities to do, but overall that was lacking too. So much more could have been added to make the world more dense and give it a better feeling of what almost everyone wants in a game: a living world. So, out of personal preference, I thought it was a, lets say, small trainwreck. It could have been better or worse. No bamdwagon influence on my opinion. Now I apologize for writing you a novel on my opinions, but I felt it necessary to point out why some fans of the series since its original release of the first game have been disappointes with the recent games. Now for those who stuck around to read my full comment, you deserve a cookie. If it was up to me, you would have got 2 cookies, but in the world of the internet, that is not possible, as something involving killer cats and uproars about more than 1 cookie would break out, so i give my moat sincere apologies and thanks.
