The new character, Elise, is nearly beheaded in the trailer, though since she apparently plays an important role in the game's story there was no chance of that happening. Thankfully Arno is there to save the day. Elise will also make a appearance in the upcoming Assassin’s Creed Unity paperback book.

Assassin's Creed Unity Arno Master Assassin CG trailer:
This new trailer for Assassin’s Creed Unity shows Arno racing against time through a dense and chaotic central Paris in order to prevent the beheading of Elise, a character central to Assassin’s Creed Unity’s story. As an independent young noblewoman, Elise is determined to secure her place in the Templar dynasty amidst the chaos of the French Revolution. Her quest leads her to cross paths with Arno and establish an unlikely bond with him.
Elise will also be featured in a new paperback, also titled “Assassin’s Creed Unity,” by Oliver Bowden from Penguin Random House. The story examines an era when the divide between the rich and poor is at its most extreme, and a nation is tearing itself apart. Told from Elise’s perspective, “Assassin’s Creed Unity” follows her and Arno as they are drawn into the centuries-old battle between the Assassins and Templars. In a world with dangers more deadly than they could ever have imagined, they must fight to avenge all they have lost. “Assassin’s Creed Unity” builds on Bowden’s past Assassin’s Creed novels with millions sold to-date.
For centuries, France has been ruled by the privileged few. No longer. On this day, the people of Paris have risen up against tyranny. Now, in the midst of one of history s most chaotic and brutal revolutions, the fate of a nation rests on the edge of the Assassin s blade.
