The Unity animated video is here!

AishaTyler, ACU creative director Alex Amancio, and Arno’s voice actor take the stage.

"Alex kicks off with a quick intro: ACU tells the story of Arno, an assassin who fights not only for himself, but for the people of France."

Generic question #1

AishaTyler asks: Why did the Assassin’s Creed Unity team choose the French Revolution?
Alex: The French Revolution gives us massive crowds, great characters, & new narrative opportunities, and was a perfect setting for a game.

Arno's Actor Dan Jeannotte delivers a candid memory during the AssassinsCreed sdcc2014 ACUnity Panel.

"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," Dan says as Arno brutally takes down two city guards. @aishatyler: "Look how funny he is!"

"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." Arno has real personal motivations driving his quest.

Genericl Question #2

aishatyler: "Let's talk about Paris. How did the team realize it in ACU?"

Alex: "We're making things more systematic. We want chaos to happen." There are several factions that interact with each other on their own.

Continuing quote:
"This means that events happen around you even if you don't intervene. It makes the city feel more alive and more unpredictable."

http://i.imgur.com/5HoMHmD.png

Alex: "And of course there are seamless interiors you can enter with no loading...Once you're in Paris, there's no loading."

Alex: One major focus for ACU is character progression. You can collect and customize your items and skills to make Arno your own.

Alex: "And there's co-op. You take your version of Arno into co-op, so how you progress your character affects how you play everywhere."

Creative Director Alex Amancio outlining gameplay details in our ACUnity Panel

Generic Question #3 (I refuse to believe these were actually asked by fans via twitter.)

AishaTyler: The French Revolution is very bloody and very violent. How does this show itself in ACU?

Alex: The French Revolution brought a lot of contrast. It's brutal and chaotic, but it led to amazing stories that we capture in the game.

Matknapers18 Asks: Dan, were you intimidated by the standards set by previous AC voice actors?

Dan: Those guys did an amazing job, and I'm hoping to bring something new and equally exciting to Arno.

@NicholasPrasad Asks: Will there be any cameos from previous characters in the series?

Alex: There aren't any explicit cameos, but previous characters are alluded to in the story!

"That does it for the Q&A, but we’re closing out with one last video from Assassin’s Creed Unity"

"The new video’s an #SDCC exclusive for now, but keep an eye out for the link next week."



Summary:



That was a terrible panel. Not only was there hardly any news, but the news we got was bad news. (no Connor cameo)

Well I suppose that isn't entirely true. We also learned Arno is initially a selfish D-bag and has a love interest. But that's about it. :/

Hopefully the clip that was exclusive to comic-con goers has actual revealing information and the twitter peeps didnt include all the questions.

Edit: the clip hasnt been shown but comic-con goers say it revealed a woman fighting alongside Arno. Charolette corday perhaps?


Some news after the panel:


- The new in-game map will be visualized in 3D, providing a new top-down view of the Assassin's Creed world.

- Certain bombs, like the explosive bombs, will be back in Assassin’s Creed Unity even though the crafting system, the one we saw in Revelations, isn't coming back. The bombs, In fact, will be simply collected as they are.

@voxx

I would assume Elise is a love interest but the fact that she has the templar sigil on her clothes (arno comes from a templar family) and a new female character was just introduced at comic con, I'm starting to think other possibilities.

But ofc it's no big deal either way

@m4r

it is meant to ease the pain this comic con news brings

m4r-k7
07-25-2014, 11:16 PM
Maybe Elise is the one fighting with Arno - They are trying to unite together - templar and assassin.
She is also the love interest.

AherasSTRG
07-25-2014, 11:23 PM
I am pretty sure Elise is Arno's stepsister, following in her father's footsteps. She is also Arno's love interest. Their awkward (sibling / erotic affection) relationship fuels their need to unite Templars and Assassins during the events of the French Revolution and the Reign of Terror.

If that's not the case, I will write a book about it that will be a bigger hit than Fifty Shades of Grey.

AherasSTRG
07-25-2014, 11:24 PM

Cheer up, Mayrice. I would prefer Connor to get a graphic Novel instead of a game tbh. In a game, because of the marketing, the wrtiter would be so much more restricted... But, in a comic book, well, that's a different story.

masterfenix2009

I also think that she should've been his biological sister.

It would've made their possible romance much more touching and meaningful, plus it would break many boundaries and turn Unity from a generic stop the evil bad guy plot into a touching personal narrative about learning to break past social boundaries to be who you want to be. And with that, no one could accuse Ubisoft of under-representation.

More details of the Comic-con trailer revealed:


Fresh news about the exclusive #ACUnity video shown at the #SDCC panel.

The trailer should have revealed a character who appears to be very close to Arno, the lead character. Arno runs across Paris, moving among the rooftops to reach a guillotine. A person with a mantle is being dragged to the guillotine and Arno makes it in time to take care of the guards. He then releases the prisoner who reveals to be a young girl. She picks up a blade and places herself back-to-back with Arno, ready to fight the reinforcements that are coming right at them.

The developers said that this brief video would have connections to the story, and that Arno may have more of a love story than the Assassins from previous titles.

What are you expecting from this woman? What will her name be?

(Note by ATA: some of us suspect it will be Elise...)

LoyalACFan
07-26-2014, 05:58 AM
Why is that a middle finger? Does an assassin need a love story to be interesting?

I guess because they didn't give Connor a love interest? But then again, Revelations was the only game that had an actual romantic subplot (AC2 and AC4 had sex but not really love stories).

Anyway, that was a freaking awful Q&A. I have a hard time believing fans actually wasted their Twitter questions on such generic information that's been repeated a hundred times since E3. "Why did you choose Paris," oh my god...

No, they never said that. There's that Rob Zombie short film, but there was never an announcement that a gameplay demo would be shown.

"(Video + New Gameplay Clips)"

That's exactly what it says, and true to form, the OP includes a video intro to the obstacle course with a few new clips of gameplay. They never said they were doing a new demo at Comic-Con, and frankly we probably won't get another actual gameplay demo at all. It's all dev diaries and trailers from here on out.

Black Flag was the follow-up act to what was widely perceived as the most disappointing AC game in the franchise. The entire marketing campaign for AC4 was damage control. As hush-hush as they're being about Unity, I don't expect anything similar whatsoever.

Excuse me? What are you on about? What trailer... specify..

This:


Fresh news about the exclusive #ACUnity video shown at the #SDCC panel.

The trailer should have revealed a character who appears to be very close to Arno, the lead character. Arno runs across Paris, moving among the rooftops to reach a guillotine. A person with a mantle is being dragged to the guillotine and Arno makes it in time to take care of the guards. He then releases the prisoner who reveals to be a young girl. She picks up a blade and places herself back-to-back with Arno, ready to fight the reinforcements that are coming right at them.

The developers said that this brief video would have connections to the story, and that Arno may have more of a love story than the Assassins from previous titles.

Besides, I'm happy that they're actually withholding some information this time. Many people complained they were being over saturated with AC 4's trailers and promotion during its campaign. Now I would like to see them show how they have improved the parkour, stealth and action in videos, but aside from that they're on the right track.

Why is that a middle finger? Does an assassin need a love story to be interesting?

Never said that he had to have one to be interesting. Just that it's getting cliche and boring now, and not to mention Connor or Aveline didn't even get one yet. And that they've moved onto another assassin before finishing the last ones (Connor AND Aveline).

Arno sounds very Ezio-like so far. Not something bad per se, I guess having someone similar to Ezio in a very different setting will lead to a distinctive character development, but it's still a miss to the chance of creating a completely different assassin. It will help for the masses appreciating Arno since apparently most people don't care whether the personality is repeated, just if it's the archetypal hero. Ubi seems to be aiming towards having a universally praised AC game this time around, whatever means necessary.

Is there a romantic side in the story of Arno? Or will it mainly focus on the revolution and the Assassins? #AskACArno


.@RinoTheBouncer Without giving too much away, there is a complicated love story within the game. #AskACArno


.@RinoTheBouncer So, Arno is fighting for love as well as justice. #AskACArno


Romeo and Juilet Templar/Assassin situation incoming? :rolleyes:

I don't want a romeo/juliet templar/assassin love situation. I just don't. I expressed my disinterest in that before. It's just silly IMO.

hope that isn't the case in Unity

Dan did full mocap for Arno, so Arno's facial movements come from Dan.

Arguably they don't really look like each other, but neither did Adrian and Noah with Haytham and Connor.

#AskACArno @assassinscreed The game title's "unity". What do u think of it? Does it reveal some kind of message in the game in some ways?:)


.@cyp_jenna1227 Yes, it's about Arno uniting with the Brotherhood and the people of France to fight together against oppressors. #AskACArno


more confirmation Unity not a reference to the union of Assassins and Templars. :(

m4r-k7
07-26-2014, 07:01 PM
Lies! Mostly every game has been about the assassin uniting with the brotherhood - every AC game could have been called Unity

I still think its to do with templars!

Templar love interest has been done before with Maria Thorpe in AC1.

I actually think that a Stepsister romance would be pretty interesting. I would think that Arno would definitely be estranged from his family once he joins the Assassins. A Romeo/Juliet type story doesn't sound that bad, I think it would be interesting, and different enough from it because they would probably be fighting as well, but also because they actually have the same origins of being raised in a Templar family.

We also had the Master Assassin girl in Havana, who had some romantic going on with the MP character.

Arguably they don't really look like each other, but neither did Adrian and Noah with Haytham and Connor.

I think they use the VA's facial structure as basic framework, and then alter various features to give the character a unique appearance, kinda like they did with Infamous Second Son.

Jexx21
07-26-2014, 07:09 PM
Sounds like they're really hammering down on the "sarcastic and funny" aspect right now. Sounds different from our previous protagonists, none of them were explicitly sarcastic or funny, not even Haytham.

Maybe they're going for Arno to have a bit of a Shaun personality :P

There, he said it! Now if Arno talk ever comes up you can cycle between "redemption" and "atonement" :p

We learned Arno did indeed have a love interest and there's a female character Arno fights alongside with. Also that Connor isn't in Unity.

That's about it.

Seems like Ubisoft has changed sides and went over to the Microsoft team for this release. Better in my opinion, I never considered Sony to be a trustworthy company.

Does Xbox actually have exclusive in-game content over the PS4 edition? Trying to decide which version to pre-order.
