A little more haggard and a little more gray, legendary assassino Ezio Auditore da Firenze culminates his lifelong journey against the Templars in Assassin’s Creed: Revelations.
Ezio travels from his home in Italy to follow the ghostly visage of the first great assassin, Altair. Ezio will find himself in (Istanbul is) Constantinople and further onto Altair’s home in Masyaf, unlocking seals that contain Altair’s knowledge and essence to unravel the final truth.
It sounds like Desmond and the Animus won’t be playing much of a role in this game, as it is Ezio who is finding and revisiting Altair’s past through these seals. (Although I’m willing to believe that the Animus’s bleed effect is in full play.)
The aged Ezio has replaced one of his hidden blades with a hidden hook, which will allow the Italian assassin to zipline across maps and hook onto ledges. When Ezio visits the life of Altair, being older since Assassin’s Creed, the nine-fingered assassin has similarly evolved, although to what extent has yet to be revealed.
Assassin’s Creed: Revelations is slated for Xbox 360 and PS3 this November.
