We're just one week away from Assassin's Creed: Revelations, which promises to be the most revelatory entry in the game's relatively short history. Today, Ubisoft has released what is likely one of the last trailers for
the game, this time showing off the new location: Constantinople...
Ubisoft is barely a week away from
releasing Assassin's Creed: Revelations, and already the studio has
heralded the arrival of another sequel within the next year. Speaking
to future projects during his 2012 first-half earnings call with
company stakeholders, Ubisoft's CEO Yves Guillemot confirmed the
franchise would stick to its annual schedule with the development of
a “full-fledged” Assassin's Creed entry in 2012, because it's always good to admit that your upcoming title isn't actually a full game...
Ezio has been the star of Assassin’s Creed for the last three years, and within the game’s story, he’s been killing Templars for three decades. For better or worse that’s got to come to an end eventually, and it looks like Ezio is about to ride off into that Renaissance era sunset, but not before he gets some answer. The launch trailer for Assassin’s Creed Revelations gives you some insight into Ezio’s search for some sort of truth during his advancing years, all while he artfully murders dozens of people we’re assuming are jerks...
Dancing in the
streets of the world's major cities ensued today as Ubisoft announced
it would be forgoing always-on DRM for this year's Assassin's Creed Revelations. The developer has announced it won't require users to
retain a constant Internet connection under threat of being booted
even from the single-player game, as had earlier been threatened; instead, players will perform a
one-time activation upon starting the game...
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
North is arguably the best-known actor in videogames, due in no small
part to his having starred in pretty much all of them. And while he's
relishing his role as the vocal and facial lead of the Assassin's
Creed franchise, North has a suggestion for Ubisoft: he wants to
start strapping ping-pong balls to his extremities in the name of
Assassin's Creed, and he wants other voice-actors to do the same...
Ubisoft has announced the
first DLC for the newly-launched Assassin's Creed: Revelations. The
Ancestors Character Pack will add four new characters to the
multiplayer world of Assassin's Creed, each bringing their own
complement of original weaponry, moves and taunts. The pack doesn't
launch until Dec 13, but it, and its as-yet-unannounced followup, are
available for preorder now...
Hot on the heels of Square Enix releasing a new set of screenshots from Final Fantasy XIII-2, now news has slipped out that the company will be
partnering with Ubisoft to outfit one of its RPG heroes with a DLC
wardrobe plucked straight from the Assassin's Creed: Revelations.
The cross-promotion will see FFXIII-2's
lead Noel Kreiss outfitted with Ezio Auditore's assassin outfit from the
latest sequel. Details of the design swap are sparse, however Square
Enix did promise a firm release date and price tag shortly...
Ready for more
backstabbing, smoke-bombing adventures? A listing on GameStop's website reveals that Assassin's Creed: Revelations is getting a batch
of new multiplayer locales next month in the form of a Mediterranean
Traveler Map Pack. Dated for a January 24 release, the
preemptive listing gives few details on what the pack will actually feature. But according to its new listing on the Assassin's Creed Wiki, the DLC will be comprised of original multiplayer environments including Siena, Jerusalem, Dyers, San Donato, Firenze and the Imperial
District of Constantinople...
