Assassin’s Creed Revelations’ hookblade explained in elegant and grisly detail with new trailer

Ezio Auditore’s proof that old dogs can learn new tricks, at least when it comes to murder. In Assassin’s Creed Revelations, the aging Italian protagonist heads to the Middle East and picks up some fresh skills from his Assassin brotherhood, as he gains the Ottoman Hookblade. Hiding in the same wrist strap as his normal knives, the curved blade works just as well for quickly exploring towns as it does for killing Templar guards. This new trailer works as a perfect introduction to the armament. Watch…

This wasn’t the only video we got from Ubisoft today, as the second one we received is a much more informal look at Ezio assassinating in style. Wielding almost every weapon we’ve seen in the series to date, this violent montage gives you a smattering of kills that should satisfy the most bloodthirsty of Ass Creed fans. Revelations hits store shelves worldwide November 15.

    That Star Wars ad is really starting to piss me off. Seriously, it comes up EVERY time you load a video.

    You can always count assassins creed to overhype a useless gimmick.

    Okay, never felt the need to post before, but as a big Ass Creed fan...I was really worried with the introduction of the hookblade. I thought the fun free-running would be somehow replaced with lame Bionic Commando hooking and swinging, and therefore franchise ruined. Having seen it in action I'm actually pretty happy with it as it changes things up nicely and just adds to the fun of bouncing around Constantinople. Looking forward to this very much.

    Most anticipated game of the year for me, hands down. The only thing that comes remotely close to topping it would be Uncharted 3.

    Its a hook, but its also a blade! WHO WOULDA KNEW!!!!!
