If you watched E3 earlier this year, you'll remember the trailers and gameplay shown for the latest Assassin's Creed game, Assassin's Creed Unity. However, if you're a stranger to the Internet, you may not have known that Ubisoft was pretty roughly criticized for not showing any of their female characters, playable or not.
Well, Ubisoft has announced their first female character for Unity, a "fiery templar" named Elise. As a young noblewoman and a very independent templar trying to make her way up the ranks despite the French Revolution, Elise crosses paths with Arno and a "bold" bond between them forms.
Whether or not this is Ubisoft's attempt to placate a vocal minority or not has yet to be seen, but either way, high-quality figurines of Elise are available for pre-order, and the figurine can be combined with Arno's. There is, however, no mention of her in multiplayer, which leads me to believe that she'll be a sidekick much in the way of Ellie or Elizabeth./p>
