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.
