Assassin's Creed Revelations: Developer interview reveals Ezio's last stand, shows lots of bloody action

We caught up with lead developer, Alexandre Breault, to find out some more revelations set for the conclusion of Ezio Auditore da Firenze's story. And the final chapter looks set to be a right old stab-fest.

Our hero is on the trail of Altair's secrets, which are tucked away in a library in an Assassin's fortress. The rumour is that it's a big-ass weapon capable of ending the war between the Assassins and the Templars. Sadly, the Templars have also got wind of this and are racing to the scene of what promises to be an epic eye-gouging proportions. 

Obviously, expect many enemies to be murderised along the way, especially if the CG clips inter-spliced in this video are anything to go by.

    @Phillo Japanese AC setting would be so great. It lends itself perfectly to an AC game. Anything too modern and you run the risk of having to incorporate a lot of guns, which I really don't think would suit AC at all. As for the whole trilogy thing. I think they will still make it a trilogy. And leave it after the ending of AC3 assassins's journey (which may or may not be Desmond). I'm sure they just see Brotherhood/Revelations as expansions.

    Can't wait for this. I just hope the game after this one is Assassin's Creed III.

    I bet you anything there will be one last, huge twist that will reveal everything, and then they will leave it at that until next year.

    I hope they fix the camera and gameplay from Brotherhood. You couldn't rotate the camera while Ezio was climbing and he felt more like a tank that could jump. Not nearly as agile as in ACII. And hopefully the next game after this will have a dramatically different setting.

    Ive been thinking about replaying brotherhood today actually. Ive loved AC series since I first read about the game many years ago when it had just started production. Revelations is looking like a really good game, personally I dont think AC works on multiplayer so I hope they dont pay too much attention to it unless they do improve it. I'll conceed that it was interesting at first due to it being something different... but I grew bored and quite frankly frustrated at it rather quickly. Fingers crossed AC3 is set in victorian England or the modernising era of Japan, as that would suit the assassins and templars going over to each get a peace out Japan as it starts to abandon the Samurai. Could start up some kind of conspiracy anywho, Templars pushing for influence in Japan so Assassins team up with the rogue Samurai's and Ninja clans or something along those lines. Be better than WW2 anywho haha

    @DannyMB What I guess they would consider a trilogy would be Assassin's Creed 2, Brotherhood and Revelations. I feel that the next installment would be considered more of a new beginning with probably a new protagonist and nifty new features (online co-op for certain modes and or missions?). I'm excited every year for a new Assassin's Creed as they've all blown me away (with the exception of the first one).

    Am I the only one that doesn't mind the idea of a trilogy within a trilogy? Honestly, I loved the improvements to the game-play that Brotherhood brought, but I felt that it fell more than just a little short on the story. Half of what I was interested in came through reading emails in a bloody game. Thankfully, this game looks set to turn things around story wise and give Ezio a chance to go out with a bang instead of a fizzle, like he would have if they ended his arc with Brotherhood. Now, here's hoping that this game really does tie up all the loose ends for AC3 like they seem to be hinting at. As much as I love these games, I can't continue caring about what happens to Desmond if they try to milk his story out over more than one more game. I WILL buy an Assassin's Creed game almost every year, but I think it's time to give us fans some closure in regards to this story-arc. It isn't even that I'm sick of the characters, I may be one of the few people who love the group dynamic that Desmond, Rebecca, Lucy, and Shaun have. But because of that, I just want to see them have some closure.

    I really think of Brotherhood and Revelations as being DLC for AC2 that comes with mechanics overhauls, full length stories, graphics updates, multiplayer, and new locations. Quite honestly, it's better than just having no AC games, and it means that they can test features out before they release their game-changer numbered title.

    I love AC, but u cant help but laugh at the whole "trilogy in nine parts" or whatever the hell it will end up being.
