Publisher confirms fourth installment of franchise coming this November.
After a handful of telling teases, Ubisoft came right out and said it today: the next Assassin’s Creed game is Revelations, it will be the culmination of Ezio’s adventure, and it will be set in Constantinople.
Promising the most immersive experience in the series to date, Ubisoft said Revelations will feature a new “revolutionary” gameplay mechanic thats allows players to manipulate the construct of Desmond’s memories and the Animus to decipher the mysteries of his past and gain insight into the future.
“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 Alexandre Amancio, Creative Director at Ubisoft Montreal. “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.”
The storyline of Revelations, as summarized by Ubisoft:
In Assassin’s Creed Revelations, master assassin Ezio Auditore walks in the footsteps of his legendary mentor, Altair, on a journey of discovery and revelation. It is a perilous path — one that will take Ezio to Constantinople, the heart of the Ottoman Empire, where a growing army of Templars threatens to destabilize the region.
In addition to Ezio’s single-player adventure, Ubisoft confirmed Revelations will include the assassination-fest multiplayer mode from Brotherhood. This time around, the multiplayer will include more modes, maps, and characters for gamers to get stabby with.
Assassin’s Creed Revelations is being developed for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Windows PCs. The game is scheduled for launch in November.
