Ubisoft launched an Assassin’s Creed Unity minigame that allows you to customize the protagonist Arno Dorian with several options. You can find it here and start creating your own character.
The minigame is tied to a contest tied to a “duel” voting system, and the winner will have his own creation featured in a future TV spot for the game.
What’s most interesting is that the minigame shows several separate clothing option (jacket, trousers and hood) and a few weapons that will most probably appear in the game. The implements of destriction featured are two different types of sabres, two maces (spiked and flared) and a flintlock pistol.
Even more intriguing is the fact that the minigame allows you to customize Arno’s skin color in four tones ranging from white to black, possibly hinting to the possibility that the game will offer that option as well. While Ubisoft has not confirmed that kind of customization officially, its inclusion in the minigame is promising.
Below you can see a series of screenshots with all the available options. As usual Ubisoft Montreal’s character designers have done a top-notch job with the game’s fashion.
We’ll have to stand by and see if the ability to chose separate clothing parts and the character’s skin tone will actually make it into the finished game. We reached out to Ubisoft to ask about that possibility, and we’ll let you know if we receive any relevant information.
Update: apparently the minigame is available only in Europe for the moment. If you’re from the US you can try with a proxy, otherwise the screenshots below will have to suffice.
