The third and final chapter in Ezio Auditore’s journey from a Florentine noble to a grand master assassin focuses on a quest to locate five ancient seals that are keys to the clandestine brotherhood’s future. Ezio must seek out clues in 16th century Masyaf, Cappadocia, and Constantinople, treading the same ground his predecessor Altaïr covered hundreds of years before. As an older, wiser Ezio, you must master new techniques and technology to ensure your survival against overwhelming odds.
Once again players will use a combination of climbing, stealth, and acrobatics to seek out and eliminate key targets of the Templar order. Ezio is now equipped with a hookblade that can be used for sliding across ropes, scaling buildings, or attacking enemies. Ezio can also craft a variety of bombs and make use of a heightened “eagle sense,” allowing him to see targets even while enshrouded in smoke. Ezio is not alone in his journey; he’ll encounter multiple allies and fellow assassins who will provide assistance when needed.
The original game’s protagonist, Altaïr, will also be playable in flashback sequences, bridging the stories of the two assassins for the first time in the series. Assassin’s Creed: Revelations also builds upon the multiplayer component introduced in 2010’s Brotherhood, offering new game modes, maps, and characters. No matter which mode you choose, you’ll earn experience points to gradually increase in rank, unlocking new gadgets and techniques to use while battling rivals from around the world.
