Assassin’s Creed: Revelations takes Ezio to many cities, new and old, that fans will get to explore in the upcoming title, which is scheduled for release this November for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.

This time players will be taken to ever more elaborate historical time periods and cities that are as impressive if not more so than the locales from the previous three titles (Assassin’s Creed 1, Assassin’s Creed 2 and Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood). They will also allow fans to view the universe from a different perspective.

  • The cities that players will visit include the following:

  • Masyaf
  • Constantinople
  • Cappadocia
  • Rhodes
  • Fans from the first game will recall Masyaf, a city that Ezio will travel to in search of secret knowledge that Altair held, however when he goes back for answers, he finds that the city is overrun by Templars. Having fans go back to a city previously visited will definitely bring back many cool memories for fans of the franchise. According to Game Informer, Ezio’s goal is to plow the library to learn more about the Order, following in Altair’s footsteps. And while this will be one of the initial cities Ezio visits, it will play a crucial part throughout the game and Ezio will visit it again near the end of the game once he has discovered “every piece of the puzzle.” And it is through Masyaf that players will learn crucial information pertaining to the larger Assassin’s Creed mythos.

    Constantinople meanwhile is an ancient metropolis and a vast, complex city. To quote creative director Alexandre Amancio:

    “Constantinople is a massive city. It actually spans two continents – on one side is Europe, and other Asia. This is the center of the known world at that time. The spice trading and all that related trade happened through Constantinople. It was one of the main reasons that Europeans tried to go around Africa – because Constantinople was this great hub controlled by the Ottomans. And, essentially, everything needed to go through that city.”

    Here is the new trailer for Assassin’s Creed: Revelations.

    In the game, Constantinople will be divided into four distinct districts, including: Constantin, Beyazid, Imperial, and Galata. Each distrisct will give players a new visual style to change things up.

    Cappadocia meanwhile is an underground Templar stronghold, a city that isn’t just populated with normal civilians, but by the sworn enemies of Ezio’s order. To quote from Game Informer’s interview:

    “Part of Cappadocia is above ground, but its true secret is underground. This is the first time something like this has been done in the franchise. We have this complete underground city.”

    Finally we come to the city of Rhodes, which isn’t a single-player city but instead will be explorable as part of the multiplayer game.

    During the sixteenth century, Rhodes was under control of the Knights Hospitallers, and thus the island is filled with palaces and castles, making it resemble an island fortress. One in which the Ottomans are seeking to claim for themselves.
