New Assassin's Creed Unity Trailer Profiles Protagonist Arno

Ubisoft has released a trailer introducing players to Arno Dorian, the new main character in Assassin's Creed Unity.

The trailer reveals Arno joins the Assassin's Order during the French Revolution under circumstances related to his painful past and also details his weaponry. Arno equips himself with the phantom blade, a gadget that throws the series' staple hidden blade like a projectile, a French cutlass, and a multi-barrel shotgun, effective at long, close, and mid range, respectively.

Assassin's Creed Unity launches on Xbox One, PS4, and PC October 28. For more, check out our story of the ten things you should know about Unity and our screenshot gallery.

  • Hidden blade crossbow?! YES PLEASE!

  • Stealthier? I bet he's another tank that singlehandedly stops the terrors of the Revolution. And possibly Napoleon.
  • Arno sounds like a funky name. Just sayin.
  • This looks great! I can't wait to play it!

  • I wonder what will be going on in the modern story. Are you still an abstergo emloyee?

  • I can't wait to find out what Ubi means by Arno being far more deadlier and violence prone than any of the previous Assassins as Altair was the best to me.

  • Arno should be interesting to play as.

  • why does he have a british accent

  • phantom blade ftw!

  • Well from what I saw at of the game play at Ubisofts press conference they actually added a cover system and much improved parkour mechanics to the game so maybe this one will have a larger focus on stealth. I can say I'm very excited for Unity it looks like its going to be the best in the series so far.

  • I shelved Black Flag for other games. I like to play in order so I'd need to beat that before thinking about this.

  • I like him so far, I just hope he has a better personality then Edward. And actually learns his skills and doesn't just magically know them all from the beginning.
