Well, Ezio is back.
Today, Ubisoft has officially announced Assassin's Creed: Revelations , the fourth entry in the critically-acclaimed and wildly popular franchise. The new project is led by Ubisoft Montreal and assisted by other studios under the publisher's umbrella, including Massive Entertainment, Annecy, Quebec, Singapore and Bucharest. Boasting "the most immersive experience available in the series to date and the culmination of Ezio's adventure," the game is slated to arrive for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC in November.
The well-known assassin looks to "walk in the footsteps of his legendary mentor, Altair, on a journey of discovery and revelation." Among Ezio's destinations are Constantinople, the heart of the Ottoman Empire, where the growing Templar threat is getting out of control. Online multiplayer, which debuted with last year's Brotherhood , will be "refined and expanded, with more modes, more maps and more characters." Perhaps most interesting is the "revolutionary gameplay," which lets players manipulate the construct of Desmond's memories and the Animus. We're not entirely sure what that means just yet, but it sounds like another level of freedom and choice…
The first three Assassin's Creed titles have combined to sell over 28 million copies worldwide and is now one of the best-selling franchises of the generation. We've always loved the games and we look forward to this year's installment with great enthusiasm.
