Ubisoft is giving PlayStation Plus and Uplay members an exclusive first taste of the Assassin's Creed Revelations multiplayer beta. The trial event is set to run September 3rd to 11th, and similar to last year's Assassin's Creed Brotherhood beta, the sneak peak will be for PS3-eyes only...
By all rights, Ubisoft's annualization of the Assassin's Creed franchise should have beaten the brand into a bloody lifeless pulp by now, yet trailers like this newest one from Gamescom indicate the generations-spanning series keeps getting better, not worse. At least, that's how it appears on the surface. We've been fooled by crisp images and slick editing before, so before our cynical jerk reflexes kick in we invite you to trip out with the latest footage of Ezio, Altair and Desmond carrying on the family business in Assassin's Creed Revelations...
We all knew there was going to be another Assassin's Creed game coming this year – we've been seeing teases of it for the past few days, if nothing else – but today, publisher Ubisoft finally let us in on its plans. Set to release this November on PS3, 360 and PC, Assassin’s Creed Revelations once again focuses on Ezio Auditore, this time as he travels to Constantinople (now Istanbul) to follow in the footsteps of his ancestor, Altair – and, of course, to kill a lot of Templars...

New details revealed in Game Informer magazine indicate that Revelations' title refers to an increased fleshing-out of Altaïr's memories for the 50-year-old Ezio, and both stories in turn for Desmond, whose gameplay sequences are split between puzzle sequences and a new “Black Room” Animus safe-mode. The new Altaïr sequences are accessed by Ezio through the discovery of hidden seals...
Even though it’s only a preview of what Ubisoft will no doubt unveil during its E3 press conference on June 6, at least this is a relatively long teaser filled with interesting moments. Billed as the final chapter in the Ezio trilogy of games, the trailer certainly has an air of finality to it, as Ezio explains how his end seems near. With glimpses of Mr. Auditore da Firenze cutting into fools interspersed with flashes of a man who seems to be Atlair, it ends with a shocking moment of the assassins’ trademark hidden blade being broken...
last week, attendees were able to get their deepest look yet at Assassin’s
Creed Revelations, with a demo that revealed quite a bit about two of the game’s
biggest additions: custom bomb-crafting, and flashbacks to Altair’s life as
experienced by Ezio Auditore. And now you can see it for yourself, thanks to this
narrated video walkthrough disseminated by Ubisoft...
Ubisoft is rewarding early adopters
of Assassin's Creed: Revelations for PS3 with a bonus copy of the very first
game in the AC series. The freebie is being offered as part of an exclusive
partnership with Sony, and will appear pre-loaded with “day one” versions of
the upcoming sequel…
Assassin's Creed: Revelations' multiplayer
is something of a thinking man's fragfest, but lest you think this makes it any
less intense than the full-out FPS alternatives, Ubisoft has released a new
video highlighting just how fierce the online competition can get...
At a glance, it may look like you’ve seen this Assassin’s Creed: Revelations
trailer before, and there’s a reason for that. It’s actually almost identical
to the one Ubisoft showed off at this year’s E3, save for two key differences:
it lasts for a few seconds longer, and the catchy music is replaced with Ezio’s
narration. While they might sound like minor changes, these two alterations completely
change the tone of the video from a cool cinematic battle to a full-blown story
trailer that delves into the plot of Revelations...
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
