Assassin's Creed Revelations announced

Assassin's Creed Revelations announced

It's not really a surprise, but it's still a good news considering the quality of the previous game, Ubisoft just announced Assassin's Creed Revelation. Ezio is still the hero, but this time he's going back on his ancestor's steps. First screen inside.

Press release:

Final Chapter in the Ezio Trilogy Arrives in November

London, UK – May 5, 2011 – Today, Ubisoft announced the development of Assassin’s Creed® Revelations, the fourth installment in the critically acclaimed and immensely popular video game franchise. Developed and led by Ubisoft Montreal with the support and expertise of Ubisoft studios Annecy, Massive Entertainment, Quebec, Singapore and Bucharest, Assassin’s Creed Revelations presents the most immersive experience available in the series to date and the culmination of Ezio’s adventure. The game is set to release on the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and Windows PC this November.

Initially launched in 2007, the first three Assassin’s Creed® games have sold more than 28 million units worldwide, and the franchise is now established as one of the best-selling series on next generation consoles. Recognized for having some of the richest, most engrossing storytelling in the industry, Assassin’s Creed has transcended video games, branching out into other entertainment experiences such as comic books, Facebook, novels, short films and more.

In Assassin’s Creed Revelations, master assassin Ezio Auditore walks in the footsteps of his legendary mentor, Altaïr, on a journey of discovery and revelation. It is a perilous path – one that will take Ezio to Constantinople, the heart of the Ottoman Empire, where a growing army of Templars threatens to destabilize the region.

In addition to Ezio’s award-winning story, the acclaimed online multiplayer experience returns, refined and expanded, with more modes, more maps and more characters that allow players to test their assassin skills against others from around the world. 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.

“Delivering the final chapter of the Ezio trilogy is an important milestone in the Assassin’s Creed franchise for us and for our fans,” said Alexandre Amancio, Creative Director at Ubisoft Montreal. “Assassin’s Creed Revelations includes lots of new features and some significant surprises. We can’t wait to show our fans what we have in store at E3 this year.”

So this is basically another game based on Assassins Creed 2?

Stop fucking milking the series Ubisoft!

AC2 from AC1 was great, Brotherhood was pushing it, this just crossed the fucking line.
I thought it was AC3 reveal, but I was silly to think so.

Will not buy any AC game again, gameplay is boring to me.

Lol. Was waiting for Brotherhood went down to a tenner to bother playing it and before I had the chance they announce another?

This series has lost my interest until AC3. However, I think it is good they are getting more money from fans and refining their formula before releasing the big one.

I think they're waiting to coincide it with 2012 anyway.

Completly agree!

Just gives us AC3 and be done with it, how more can they milk AC2 for God's sakes??

This is a no buy!
Commented on 2011-05-05 19:48:46
At least the story is going on...I've seen worse milking with fps games that have no story at all and still a new game comes out every year..
Commented on 2011-05-05 21:05:11
Just because this is Ezio again I'm not going to buy it. I let Brotherhood slid because I wondered what happened to him after the end of AC2. I was disappointed in that but at least I was really interested in what happened to Desmond and company. Thing is Ubisoft needs to leave Ezio, he served his time and beyond now in history. It's time for a new hero to step up in a new century. They're playing favorites too much now I think unless they do plan to go back to Altair which I personally like a little more but that's only me.
Commented on 2011-05-05 21:28:16
I like Altair MUCH more interms of character, but Ezio has more skills, which is unfortunate that Ubisoft came up with good stuff after AC1.

But the more I see the more I know the gameplay overal is boring and too slow for me unless I see a overhaul which I doubt they will do.

If they make it more actiony as with combos and air combos and stuff I could get on board lols.

I will probably play it at some point as I will play Brotherhood but maybe next year.

LOL your vision is too exagerated, though mine would be more, but Ubisoft dont have the brain capacity to do such a thing.

Besides, other than counter attacks I seen in Brotherhood, combat is really boring.
I love some of the counter attack moves, visceral and nasty to watch, especially with the dagger and the hidden blades.
Commented on 2011-05-05 21:56:36
For God's sake Ubisoft, enough Ezio already. Wasnt the franchise supposed to take a break this year? Arent we supposed to get a new Prince of Persia and Beyond Good and Evil? come on now, enough AC .....
Commented on 2011-05-05 22:23:35
New Prince of Persia 2008 sequel?

Yes pleaseeeeeeeee!!!
Commented on 2011-05-05 22:23:47
No hating here.

I love Altaïr,...Ezio not so much BUT..seeing him change and grow older, (see picture added by Sath), makes me like him a bit more. They should've started his story as that old master assassin.

Back to Altaïr. I like his mystic look, though he needed a beard (like Big Boss).
The Assassins were Muslim but he married a Christian woman which I liked. The only thing I didn't like about him was his American accent. They should've made an Altaïr-trilogy. Also the outfit Altaïr is wearing is still the best AC outfit. Simple but different.

Looking forward to this. I like the setting (Constantinople). Ezio better be less casanova and more assassin (attitude-wise)
Commented on 2011-05-05 23:42:26
I can't blame Ubisoft for cashing in there cow, I just had hoped that they had more irons the the pot to depend upon. Given the choice I would rather an Assassin's Creed every year as apose to a Call of Duty. Though I suppose the nature is different since one franchise still has a story to finish :).
Commented on 2011-05-05 23:45:55
I love the Assassin's games but this looks awfully like sticking Ezio in the maps from Assassin's Creed 1. It smells of cash in and laziness.
Commented on 2011-05-06 00:14:38
I'll play these games as long as they add new gameplay stuff and the story is interesting. Brotherhood was awesome, expecting nothing less from this one.
Commented on 2011-05-06 01:35:16
I love the series and I'm excited for this one too.

I can't believe people are bitching about it. AC has a really good story with unique gameplay elements that improve more and more each game, and the devs actually listen to fan feedback.

Stretching the games out? Hell yeah if it keeps being this good.
Commented on 2011-05-06 07:49:15
I'll reserve my comments to actual footage of it...
Commented on 2011-05-06 11:23:10
Borhterhood was the first one I actually loved, so this is great news.

AC3 would've been better but the way Brotherhood ended this was likely the next logical step
Commented on 2011-05-06 13:47:26
I too liked Altair (or Altaïr if that is the correct way to write it...) more. His suit was elegant in it's simplicity, very stylish. Loved it.. I would love the series go more stealth as they ARE assasins, not combat ninjas. But that's just me..
Commented on 2011-05-06 14:03:15
I'm torn about this. ACB was amazing, but I was completely sick of Ezio by the end. They are stretching his story so thin. Besides for learning who he eventually passes his dna on with, what else can we learn about him?

I'm ready for a new character in a slightly more modern setting.
Commented on 2011-05-06 18:16:01
brotherhood was beyond boring, couldn't even bring myself to complete it. they continue to add random things to do without really building upon the core elements of the gameplay, like combat and traversal, which are still, 3 games on, both massively automated and skill-less. plus i absolutely hate ezio as a character, he just comes across as a bit of a douche. not even going to rent it tbh.
