Assassin's Creed Revelations Announced

Ubisoft is doing it again and I can say without hesitation that my optimism is extremely high. Assassin's Creed Revelations shall be our final chapter in the story of Ezio Auditore. This time Ezio is at a ripe old age of 52 years and will be gallivanting around locations old, such as Masyaf (the original headquarters of the Assassins in the time of Altaïr), and new, including Constantinople (capital city of the then Ottoman Empire). Not a great many details are revealed for this installment but we do know that the game will further develop all three of the major Assassins' stories: Altaïr, Ezio, and Desmond. Ezio comes to Constantinople in search of answers to his ancestor's past, much like Desmond tries to accomplish in the Animus. Upon arriving in the Ottoman Empire, Ezio makes contact with the Assassins in the area and the story of Assassins fighting the Templars continues to unfolds. Ubisoft has also revealed that in similar fashion to the previous games, new weapons will be incorporated to the gameplay including a hidden hookblade that allows the player to zipline across districts to their kill.

Expect further updates as we learn more about this game, but I think it's very safe to say that after the incredible success of all other previous titles, this one should not disappoint. Release is set for November of this year. Perhaps the game may also reveal some details, such as the location and story, of the much anticipated Assassins Creed III.
