Gamers have been on the side of the Assassin’s Creed’s Assassins for so long that they see the Templars as an evil group of controlling murderers. But maybe we’ve just been indoctrinated into the Assassin’s way for so long we can’t see all the good the Templars do. Perhaps if we spent some time on the other side we’ll see that both have reasonable arguments. That’s what the multiplayer mode in Assassin’s Creed Revelatoins is all about, where you play as new Templar recruits going through Animus training. These new trailers give you a chance to see the mode in all its stabby glory.
That trailer really gave you a sense of just how important the work of Templars can be. You may kill innocent men and women, but we now see that it’s for the greater good. Those Assassins just love disruptive chaos and will watch the world fall to flames if we don’t do something. Then again, this other, creepier trailer about what’s really going on during the testing is less persuasive.
Yeah, things seem a little less fun in that second one. Regardless, once you get your hands on Assassin’s Creed Revelations November 15, just remember it’s not all about the single player. It looks like Ubisoft worked hard on improving the already quality multiplayer.
