We’ve seen a fair share of
Assassin’s Creed Revelations videos, whether it’s Ezio's life story, how to anvigate a city and murder people with a hookblade,
or how to best drop bombs on Templars.
One thing all those trailers had in common was just how wordy they are, filled
with gameplay and story explanations. Sometimes you just want to forgo words
altogether. Sometimes you just want to hear Euro dance beats and watch a Renascence
assassin kill people with all his sneaky weaponry. That’s where this most
recent trailer comes in…
The juxtaposition of nasty
violence against that beautiful architecture will never get old, but there were
at least a few interesting story points dropped in among the slaying. Not only
do we get to see the return of Ezio’s team of assassin’s taking down whoever he
points at, we even get flashes of the series’ first protagonist, Altair. We see
the Crusade-era killer stabbing away at his enemies, and are treated to the
sight of Altair giving his mentor/betrayer from the first game a proper funeral
pyer, one fit for a Viking warrior or Darth Vader.
