Arno Actor: Assassin's Creed Unity Tells An "Emotional Story"

Assassin's Creed Unity is the first true next-gen experience in the franchise.

As such, it'll boast a host of improvements and expansions, including equipment that has an impact on how your character moves through the environment, more fluid transitions from stealth to combat, better AI, and even a better, more complex storyline.

Actor Dan Jeannotte, who plays protagonist Arno Dorian, says the plot is both "complex" and "emotional," and it also helps that Arno is a pretty awesome character. During a recent Ubisoft interview Jeannotte says he was impressed with the script's sentimentality:

"When I read the script, I was really impressed with the dedication to telling that kind of emotional story; to the commitment of the writer and Ubisoft in general to tell this kind of complex, emotional story. It's not simple. It's not black and white."

Jeannotte added that he loved wearing a motion capture suit, which allowed him to understand what it meant to "really embody the character physically." We've heard similar statements from actors who have lent both their physical and artistic skills to a game, and we're hoping Jeannotte is equal to the lofty task. This is Assassin's Creed! Connor was sort of a lame duck but Ezio was a bad-ass!

I say she dies at the end. She turned away from her templar ways just not quite in time.

Beam says the same, but she survives.

Can't wait to see who wins the friendly bet!
