Assassin's Creed: Revelations

Assassin's Creed: Revelations is a historic action adventure game set to be released on three platforms. In just one day, on November 15, 2011, it will be released on Xbox 360 and PS3. The PC version of the game has been delayed two weeks, and will be released on November 29. It is recommended that you have played the preamble to this game, Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood. The fourth installment of the Assassin's Creed series is a direct sequel to Brotherhood. Three characters from previous Assassin's Creed games are making a return in Revelations: Ezio, Altair, & Desmond. It has been announced that this will be the last game in the series to feature Ezio and Altair, as main characters.

The gameplay will be the same as Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood. It will feature Ezio running around, and battling in an open world style gameplay. This game will include all new combat skills, weapons, and a faster way of getting around. Revelations will feature a tons of missions, which you must complete in order to advance further in the game. It is also known that you will be able to play Revelations in full 3D.

Revelations will pick up where Brotherhood left off. At the end of Brotherhood, Desmond was forced to stab his partner, Lucy Stillman. Desmond then lost consciousness, and fell into a coma. Desmond has been returned to the Animus, where he hopes to gain consciousness again. Still in a comatose state, he finds a passage known as the Black Room.To get out of his coma, Desmond must find the key that joins him to Ezio and Altair. Once he does, he will regain consciousness. Assassin's Creed: Revelations will be the final game in the series to have Ezio and Altair as main characters.

Like I said above, their is a new piece of equipment that will allow Ezio to get around faster. The new weapon, the "Hookblade" will allow Ezio to zip line through the city with ease. The hookblade can also be used to grab unsuspecting enemies. Also making its debut to the series, are bombs. 300 types of bombs will be at Ezio's disposal.

Multiplayer is making its return, and is better than ever. It will feature a new layout, that includes new maps, modes, and characters. Players will have more control over their characters appearance and weapons, in Revelations.

Multiplayer will feature some old modes from Brotherhood, but also new modes. A few new modes, Deathmatch and Artifact Assault are two new additions to multiplayer. Deathmatch mode will allow 4 to 8 players to compete against each other, in a free for all. Unlike previous Assassin's Creed games, their will be no compass to guide the player. The player will instead rely on a box, located in the upper right had corner of the screen. This box shows your opponents, depicted by a blue dot. Artifact Assault, the other new mode, is similar to capture the flag. This mode the players will be divided into teams. The team who collects the required amount of artifact first, wins. If time runs out, the team with the most artifacts wins.

The future of the Assassin's Creed series looks bright. It has been announced by Ubisoft, that their is already a sequel to Revelations in the works. Though little is known about the sequel, we do know two characters will have different roles. Characters Ezio and Altair will be making their last appearance as main characters in Revelations. The error will also be changed in the sequel. Assassin's Creed: Revelations will be the last in the series to be set in the Renaissance error. More about the sequel will be announced in the upcoming months.
