The first Assassin’s Creed was a very good game. It had a beautiful and very large environment to explore, and an intriguing character by the name of Altair. He was, of course, an assassin, and used his hidden blade in his sleeve as his primary weapon. It was set in the Middle East, and you assassinated targets, but the story was a bit confusing and not very well-constructed.
Assassin’s Creed II improved on it’s predecessor in every way, but more notably on story. The best part was a brand-new character that was equally intriguing and went by the name of Ezio. He actually got a dual hidden blade, with one in each sleeve.
Then, there was Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood. The story was shakier than it’s predecessors, but made up for it with new features, landscapes, and a larger landscape. Most notably of these was the addition of a brotherhood of assassins you could recruit. Oh, yes, and best of all, innovative and creative multiplayer.
Now, we are in the midst of a new Assassin’s Creed game; that is Assassin’s Creed: Revelations. Assassin’s Creed: Revelations will feature all kinds of new things, such as larger maps, more kinds of gear, and a stronger story.
One of the many features being put into Assassin’s Creed: Revelations, is the hookblade. This equipment will allow Ezio to speed down overhanging ropes and such like a zip-line. Expect even more gadgets and weapons to be added to the game. Also expect almost all of the gadgets and weapons from the previous game, Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, to be put in this installment of Assassin’s Creed.
There will also be bombs that you can collect and use in Assassin’s Creed: Revelations. In fact, Ezio crafts these bombs himself. There will be well over 300 different variations of these bombs throughout the game, and should come in very handy in all kinds of situations.
The innovative multiplayer will make a comeback in Assassin’s Creed: Revelations. It is very definitely similar to that of the multiplayer in Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood. In fact, it’s the same, but highly improved upon. It still remains to be one of the most unique experiences in multiplayer that we’ve ever had. You have several characters to choose from. Well, nine to be precise. Then, there’s four game modes that have so far been revealed: Wanted, Manhunt, Deathmatch, and Artifact Assault. Even after you’ve beaten the extended campaign for this game, you’ll still have plenty of fun in the multiplayer modes. Plus, pre-ordering the Signature Edition from GameStop will earn you a bonus multiplayer character to use.
Ezio himself will be about 50 years old in this game. He’ll seem much older. It has been mentioned that Assassin’s Creed: Revelations will be Ezio’s final adventure in the Assassin’s Creed series. Whether Ezio lives or dies at the end of the game is obviously unknown. To find that out, we’ll just have to wait for the game to be released.
Assassin’s Creed: Revelations will be released on November 11 of this year. Be sure to get your hands on this one!
