Assassin’s Creed Unity: Rob Zombie and Walking Dead Co-Creator Worked On New Trailer
New details on Arno and Paris have also been revealed from Comic-Con.
Ubisoft has shared some details regarding Assassin's Creed Unity from their panel at the International Comic-Con in San Diego today.
The panel included creative director Alex Amancio and actor Dan Jeannotte who voices protagonist Arno Dorian.
Jeannotte commented, "Arno starts on his own mission for redemption, but he soon realizes there's so much more for him to do for the people of France. Arno's witty, he's funny, and he's direct. Arno starts of pretty selfish, but as he gets stronger he becomes more a part of the larger fight of the French Revolution. There's also a bit of a love interest as well."
Discussing why Ubisoft chose the French Revolution, Amancio said:
"The French Revolution gives us massive crowds, great characters, & new narrative opportunities, and was a perfect setting for a game. We're making things more systematic. We want chaos to happen. This means that events happen around you even if you don't intervene. It makes the city feel more alive and more unpredictable."
"And of course there are seamless interiors you can enter with no loading… Once you're in Paris, there's no loading."
One in four buildings have accessible interiors and as such Paris in the game is as large as the real city at the time the game is set – equalling all of the island landmasses in Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag combined.
Ubisoft has released a new trailer which was created with the help of "famed musician and Master of Horror Rob Zombie to depict the chaotic and brutal events behind the French Revolution. Illustrated by The Walking Dead co-creator, Tony Moore, this animated short brings to life the gory details, bloody battles, and terrifying events of the revolution."
Assassin's Creed Unity launches for PC, PS4, and Xbox One on October 28th.
