  • Revelations picks up where the last game left off and sees Desmond Miles in a coma. He has been returned to the Animus to maintain his consciousness where he falls into an Animus back door called the Black Room. He hopes to reassemble his shattered mind – and reawaken from the coma – by locating a key memory connecting himself, Altaïr Ibn-La’Ahad and Ezio Auditore da Firenze together. To do so, he begins reliving the later memories of Ezio.

    Throughout the course of the game, all three protagonists from the previous games will be included: Altaïr, Ezio and Desmond! Ezio must use relics of the first civilization that hold memories of Altaïr to relive Altaïr’s experiences, during which you will control the protagonist of the first game.

    Revelations looks to be the most exciting installment so far and will be the final Assassin’s Creed title to depict Altaïr and Ezio as main characters, since Assassin’s Creed III will introduce a new protagonist!

    Key Features of Assassin’s Creed: Revelations

    Here is a list of key elements that will be available in Ubisoft Montreal’s Assassin’s Creed: Revelations, based on news and announcements made so far.

    The Hookblade
    The hookblade can be used to zipline across the city or grab enemies and reel them in. The hookblade reportedly speeds up navigation by around 30 percent!

    Multiplayer Modes
    The multiplayer mode expands the basics online modes from Brotherhood with new characters and locations! Players will also be able to customize their characters’ appearance and weapons, as well as create a guild and its own unique coat of arms. New multiplayer modes will also be added, some of which include “story-oriented quests”.

    So far, ten multiplayer characters have been revealed: the Sentinel, the Guardian, the Bombardier, the Vanguard, the Crusader, the Deacon, the Ottoman Jester, the Ottoman Doctor, the Thespian and the Charlatan.

    A Crafting System
    Ezio will have 300 different bomb-types at his disposal, the crafting system will allow players to create new variations.

    Random Quests
    Instead of side missions, Ubisoft has changed this feature to “Random Quests”. For example, you will find a store owner being robbed or a child in need of help.

    Assassin’s Dens
    The concept of Borgia towers has been expanded in Revelations, and in order to neutralize the Templar presence, various assault scenarios must be completed. The liberated buildings will be known as “Assassin’s Dens,” though control over them may be lost to a Templar assault. These attacks will be triggered if the player’s notoriety increases.

    Controlling a den and its surrounding region will allow the player to upgrade all the shops and buildings in that area, including the den itself, which will provide more navigation options (like additional zip lines for the hook blade) in that part of the city.
