Ubisoft have officially lifted the lid on Assassin’s Creed: Revelations. The fourth game in the series, it will act as “the final chapter in the Ezio Trilogy” which began with Assassin’s Creed II.
And it sounds a suitably epic send-off for the sneaky renaissance back-stabber, travelling to Constantinople, “where a growing army of Templars threatens to destabilise the region.”
There also appears to be stronger links to the first game this time around, with test subject Desmond able to delve even further into his genetic memory bank through the Animus system, possible allowing for some time-and-location jumping between renaissance Italy and original assassin Altair’s Crusades-era Jerusalem.
According to Ubisoft:
“The latest chapter in the Assassin’s Creed saga also includes revolutionary gameplay, allowing players to manipulate the construct of Desmond’s memories and the Animus to decipher the mysteries of his past and gain insight into the future.”
Multiplayer modes first seen in Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood will also return, “with more modes, more maps and more characters that allow players to test their assassin skills against others from around the world.”
Set for release on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC, we expect to hear far more on the game at the E3 games conference in June.
