‘Assassin’s Creed Unity’ Has A Complex And Emotional Story [Video]

Dan Jeannotte, the actor behind the protagonist Arno Dorian in the upcoming "Assassin's Creed Unity," said the game is more than just using stealth moves and taking down bad guys. It actually tells a compelling and emotional story, according to Gamespot.

In a video interview with game developer Ubisoft, Jeannotte gave out a few details as to how Arno's story will unravel.

"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," the actor said.

"It's not simple," he added. "It's not black and white."

According to Jeannotte, Arno starts out as a selfish person who initially intends to use the brotherhood of the assassins for his own interests. But as the story progresses, he begins to realize the importance of the Templar Order, Gamerant reported.

"He's kind of selfish, kind of a brat, but then there's sort of this tragic incident that spurs him into action, and he has to man up, he has to fight," the actor said.

"At the beginning he's not an assassin, but then he comes into the assassin brotherhood thinking of it as a means to an end," he added. "It's going to help him achieve what he wants, selfishly. But then being part of the brotherhood, he realizes that he's part of something much bigger."

For Jeannotte's portrayal of Arno, Ubisoft used motion-capture technology to provide realistic physical movements for the game. The actor commented that this not only contributed to the quality of "Unity" but also improved his depiction of the main character, according to Hardcore Gamer.

"To put on the motion capture suit, and really embody the character physically was such a treat," he said. "It's different from doing just a disembodied voice in a studio. This way I could really feel who this guy was and feel him changing in his body."

"I love doing that and it certainly helps the vocal performance," he added.

"Assassin's Creed Unity" will debut on Oct. 28, 2014, and will be available for the Windows PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
