Assassin’s Creed Revelations will feature all of the three characters from the previous games; Ezio Auditore de Firenze, Altair ibn La-Ahad and Desmond Miles. Ezio will be headed to Istanbul in 1511 AD, traveling through four dangerous districts during the rise of the Ottoman Empire. One section of these districts will have an underground city populated entirely by Templars. Ezio discovers Altair who has been sealed inside a fortress as an ancient artifact, the Templars think he could be used as a powerful weapon to end the war between the Templars and Assassin’s for good. You will get to control the fallen hero from the first Assassin’s Creed game when Ezio uses relics of the first civilization that holds the memories of Altair. You will still get to continue the story of Desmond Miles in the modern world. His story picks up where Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood left off, trapped inside the Animus in a coma. Desmond has found solitude inside the Black Room, where he must find a connection between himself, Ezio and Altair to regain conciousness.
New Items & Increased Movement
You will also be introduced to all sorts of new items, but one that is particularly interesting is the Hookblade. This new item can be used to zipline across the city, which speeds up navigation by 30% and making it easier to get around the game world. The Hookblade can be used in battle to pull enemies towards you, then follow up with a quick combo attack. My favorite addition is the craftable bombs. Ezio will be able to discover items and elements that will allow him to create up to 300 different types of bomb. Assassin’s Creed Revelations will be available for the 360 on November 15th!
