Assassin’s Creed Revelations
While fans of the Assassin’s Creed franchise may have been hoping to see the story of Desmond’s war against the Templars of Abstergo come to an end in Assassin’s Creed 3, Ubisoft surprised us all by announcing that they would once again be going back to the well of Ezio Auditore with Assassin’s Creed Revelations.
Some may have seen the move as an effort to further delay any clarifying of the overarching story, but recent information has led us to believe otherwise, with the game’s latest trailer showing that fans may have misunderstood the importance of Ezio and Altair altogether.
With that in mind, Revelations is shaping up to be something entirely new in the series, not just another retread. We don’t know how the game will combine the ability to play as both Ezio and Altair into a common purpose, but the idea of experiencing something new within the world of Assassin’s Creed, and better understanding Brotherhood is more than enough to get our attention.
Gears of War 3
Already the top pre-ordered console exclusive for Xbox 360 with months still to go before it releases in September, Gears of War 3 just enjoyed a very successful and popular multiplayer beta which lasted a month and continues to be one of the most promising games of the year. After playing it extensively, the Game Rant team already misses it, and the three game modes and four maps offered in our demo already proved it to be one of the year’s best multiplayer titles.
Gears of War 3 acts as the trilogy’s conclusion to the tale of Marcus Fenix, and the game made a revealing splash at last year’s E3. Having seen that and played the game since, we wonder what new revelations will be had during their presentations at this year’s E3, since the game has become one of the most important releases for Microsoft’s home console this year.
