Come and meet the actor behind the next Assassin’s Creed protagonist, Arno Dorian. Ubisoft has published an extensive interview with actor Dan Jeanotte about becoming an assassin and what makes Arno different from other Assassin’s Creed protagonists.
A key thing to take away from the interview is that Ubisoft used motion-capture on Dan. This is a first for the franchise and will hopefully yield more realistic animations, and proper lip-syncing during cutscenes.
Dan also divulged that Arno will start as a selfish, bratty person. However, tragedy strikes and he’s forced to man-up and joins the Assassin Order. At first he only sees the Order as a means to an end, but he slowly begins to realize that he’s a part of something much bigger.
We’ll get to know Arno and his story when Assassin’s Creed Unity launches October 28 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
