Assassin's Creed Revelations announced
Though the company wasn't exactly keeping it a trade secret, Ubisoft officially announced Assassin's Creed Revelations today. The game is being developed by Ubisoft Montreal, with support from Ubisoft studios Annecy, Massive Entertainment, Quebec, Singapore, and Bucharest. It's set for PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 in November, which means earlier reports of a new packaged game this year were spot-on.
Ubisoft calls this the culmination of Ezio's story, so it's our last trek with the beloved Renaissance Batman. In the game, Ezio retraces the steps of Altair to Constantinople, where Templars are gathering their forces. This goes hand-in-hand with the teaser trailers, which hinted at both Altair and Ezio.
The game promises to let you "manipulate the construct of Desmond's memories," which sounds so crazy that it has to mean something. It will also bring back the multiplayer from Assassin's Creed Brotherhood, letting you shank fools with more modes, maps, and characters.
"Delivering the final chapter of the Ezio trilogy is an important milestone in the Assassin’s Creed franchise for us and for our fans," said Ubisoft Montreal creative director Alexandre Amancio, in the announcement. "Assassin's Creed Revelations includes lots of new features and some significant surprises. We can’t wait to show our fans what we have in store at E3 this year." If any of those surprises include making sense of Brotherhood's ending, sign us up.
