Amazon has a preview of some pages from the Unity strategy guide up. There are some decent spoilers here revealing the appearance and quotes of some characters and more info about what Time Rifts might appear and when, so I wouldn't look if you want to avoid any spoilers at all. You can click the link that says "See all 8 images" underneath the preview image of the cover to see the images.

Links are inside the spoiler tag:

The biggest takeaway is this reveals the major Time Rifts that appear to replace the typical Modern Day segments. In The Story So Far preview, the right side of the page shows the order of walkthrough chapters within that section of the guide, revealing the Rifts as "Bridge: Paris 1898" between Sequence 3 and 4, "Bridge: Paris 1944" between Sequence 7 and 8, and "Bridge: Paris 1394" between Sequence 11 and 12. So it appears the Time Rifts will replace the typical modern day interruptions in the flow of the historical sequences as the game goes on.

The Story So Far also confirms that Helix is Abstergo's consumer streaming service, offering slices of history in a video game experience stripped of incriminating or inappropriate material.

The Cast preview confirms that Jacques de Molay, the last real-world Templar Grand Master, will make an appearance, and will likely be the first major character encountered. I'd bet he's in the Prologue. It also shows Arno's father, Charles Dorian.

I'd recommend talking about the you-know-what in spoiler tags.

I thought it was the box at first too, although it looks like it has a flat top while the box from Embers and Freedom Cry had a curved top. Maybe it's just because it's concept art and was never intended to match the box exactly but to get an idea for the look of the character.

Probably not a spoiler, but interesting how Arno's art looks so different. I'd say it was a late game pic, but his face just looks so different.
