The whole Internet (yes, all of it) was pretty sure any real details about Assassin's Creed: Revelations would remain under wraps until someone (cough, Game Informer, cough) unveiled a magazine cover. That happened today, with the publication confirming a new Assassin's Creed is coming in November.

As the headline suggests, Assassin's Creed: Revelations brings gaming's favorite Italian ninja, Ezio, to the forefront for yet another adventure, promised to be his last. This time, he's climbing around Constantinople during the Ottoman Empire, while Desmond continues his exploits in the present. Curiously, Revelations will also bring Altair back into the fold, as hinted at by the viral marketing from this week.

Precious few details are available otherwise. Players will have access to a "new weapon and tool that changes the way you'll fight and traverse the world" and the surprisingly great multiplayer will return.

The world was skeptical Ubisoft could deliver another satisfying Assassin's Creed game so quickly when Brotherhood was announced--and, hey, that turned out rather awesome. While yet another tour of Europe with Ezio gives us pause--how else would Ubisoft be able to develop another one so fast?--Brotherhood's quality means I'm hopeful for this one, too. Luckily, we should learn plenty more really soon at E3.     

This may be the last time we see Ezio precariously hanging onto a ledge.

This is kind of awesome. I love the idea of getting to play all three characters, and in the picture released Ezio looks so cool and distinguished with his grey beard. Love it.

Actually, this fills me with hope, as it means we're getting ever closer to Assassin's Creed III actually being released on the day the game will begin in 2012. It probably won't be 72 days as there's another game in between and the whole thing is unlikely to happen in one day, but that actually does give me some hope.


Also, Constantinople? Shiiiiiit, that's awesome!

I might have to wait on my judgement of this one. On the one hand, I don't want to encourage more senseless annual sequel-ing. On the other, Brotherhood was pretty alright.


Then again, it was just Assassin's Creed 2 with good multiplayer. Color me skeptical on this one.

This sounds great, I have yet to play Brotherhood but I'm gonna play it soon

Constantinople sounds like a great place to set it, been in Istanbul several times, have family there, and I can't wait to see what they do with it

Really want AC3 though...

More AssCreed is always good... but I do wish we were moving on past Ezio to a new timeframe.

This would actually be one instance where I wouldn't mind subtle iterations on the multiplayer. I don't want stuns to be easier (they're meant to punish your hunter for being sloppy, not for self-defense), I don't want a bunch of new modes, I don't want a massive overhaul, I just want it to look better and play better. Maybe have some of the perks be more useful.

AC is a fine series, but couldn't we have just kept it the fucking trilogy it was originally going to be? It's always so depressing when something is really good, but they can't help themselves and they just keep fucking beating it into the mother fucking ground until you're sick of hearing about it.

I feel like I shouldn't be ready for more AC yet but here we are, and here I totally am.

It's a bit too soon for me I think. I'd feel better if they had spent more time on it. Plus, I want to play as someone not Ezio. 


I dunno. I hope I look back at this comment and shake my head.

uh... Ezio kinda got boring in brotherhood as a character.

Desmond was pretty much nothing since the first game.

Altair was meh.

And what's the point of playing all 3? They are pretty much a reskin of each other. Couldn't you kinda do that in 2 and brotherhood with goofy uplay unlock things?

This peaked my interest.

 while Desmond continues his exploits in the present.

Mostly because Desmond dropped into a coma at the end of Da Vinci's Disappearance.

I think i'm going to pass on this. I was not a big fan of brotherhood because it never changed the setting and felt like filler.

Why just one city again? Doesn't anyone remember how varied the environments of AC2 were...
Also I couldn't care less about the multiplayer. For me it's just an annoyance that means I'll never have a Platinum.

  Remember Desmond, if you have a date in Constantinople, she'll be waiting in Istanbul.

This is good, I wanted to explore more of Altair's story. Though I'm wondering how they'll incorporate the gameplay changes of ACII and AC:B into the Altair parts. Leonardo made the second blade with Altair's notes, right?

So long to my National Treasure, Assassins Creed crossover. I was really hoping that they were heading to america and dealing with the free masons (that was my guess lol).

So this new tool, I'm hoping it's a grappling hook. Also what is coming out of his sleeve there?

I didn't expect a full blown game with Ezio as the lead. I wonder how the Altair stuff will work out but I am interested even if it does seem like they are stretching the story longer than it probably should go.

I am getting a little tired of Ezio. The character and setting are good, but after Brotherhood I think the last thing I want is to return to it.


Its a pity they are going the way of "expansions" instead of fully fleshed sequels.

I don't really care what anymore, I'll buy anything that says "Assassin's Creed" until the game disappoints.

I was ready for Assassin's Creed 3 and the end of this Desmond's story but I'll check this out for the single player after that cliffhanger ending with AC: Brotherhood. I guess Ubisoft wants to take the Call of Duty route with a yearly iteration. Which sucks ass.

I would be in to a story where ezio, altair and desmond all exist within the same "reality"
