Assassin’s Creed Revelations’ “Previously on…” trailer catches you up on four years of story

Clarity and Assassin’s Creed get along about as well as the Templars and Assasins (if that didn’t make sense to you, that’s part of the problem). To an outsider Creed’s plot of secret societies, Matrix-inspired memory regression, and the coming apocalypse makes little sense. Hell, we’ve beaten all the previous games and even we’re a little mystified by the franchises’ obtuse plot. No matter what your previous familiarity with the series is, it’d probably do you some good to watch this recap trailer if you plan on picking up Assassin’s Creed Revelations tomorrow.

Revelations is apparently the final game to star Ezio so you may need this little primer before you say goodbye to him. We enjoyed Revelations enough to give it an 8/10, though we did feel like maybe Assassin’s Creed could use a little break. Oh, Ubisoft is publishing one next year? Never mind then.

    I'm waiting a while before picking up Revelations, the game looks great as does Assassin's Creed in general, and I'll play it before I play the next one for sure, but I don't care for the multiplayer and I'd rather have a great story and no multiplayer option. It seems Ubisoft is taking a page from Activision with the "One a year" buisness model, except they have one studio making a game every year instead of every other year, also the games just keep getting less and less story, Ezio is great and all, but does he deserve 3 games? Altair only gets two games, and he was an American living in a middle eastern world! Also @Dman, trilogyception

    Since my roommate and neighbors won't be bothered to play the other assassin's creed games, i think im gonna have to make this trailer essential before i let them borrow revelations from me.

    I can't wait to get this game tonight, though I do wish they would give the franchise a break for at least a year. Either that or focus solely on the story next year instead of further refining multiplayer. I just really want number three to finally end things for Desmond and give me some overall story closure. I really don't get their argument for putting out a game next year though, it just doesn't hold up. How can the story just not make sense if it takes place after a date in real life? Whatever it is they have planned, would a fictional story really have less of an impact if its doomsday date passes in real life? It's not like it will actually happen, unless... My god. Ubisoft isn't milking a game franchise, they're giving us a warning people! GO BUY ASSASSIN'S CREED, IT'S OUR ONLY HOPE.

    If the world ends in 2012 we'll never get to play Beyond Good and Evil 2! Don't you people see what's happening here?!

    Don't understand why Ubisoft is so adamant on bleeding the franchise dry, I thought that was more Activision's thing.

    I just don't like how they made a trilogy within a trilogy.

    I think they'll calm it down after 2012, after they play a little on the real life "event".
