While the concept of multiplayer in the Assassin’s Creed series isn’t an altogether new concept thanks to Brotherhood, the introduction of a narrative into the fold is. Though Assassin’s Creed Revelations promises to complete the Ezio and Altair segments of the series, the multiplayer also promises to deliver its own compelling storyline.
To celebrate the release of Revelations, and to give gamers a brief taste of that multiplayer story, Ubisoft has released a trailer that centers on The Sentinel, one of the many multiplayer characters that Ezio will also encounter in the single player of Revelations.
As an Assassin gone rogue, The Sentinel shares many of the same skills of his assassin brothers, but with a stronger edge. The Sentinel is, of course, only one part of the multiplayer narrative that bleeds into the single player of Assassin’s Creed Revelations, leaving gamers to unravel the entire mystery themselves.
Seeing The Sentinel in action should hopefully increase gamers’ enthusiasm to get their hands on Revelations, and witness the combination of panache and brute strength this particular multiplayer combatant wields.
Ubisoft also detailed one of Revelations' new modes, called Corruption, which closely resembles a mode gamers have seen before, but with the trademark Assassin’s Creed twist.
In Corruption, it is up to the non-corrupted players to survive for as long as they can whilst their teammates, and then enemies, work to keep from getting corrupted themselves. The mode sounds like a lot of fun, and cleverly deviates from the stealth-based gameplay that the previous multiplayer modes of Brotherhood have put on display.
As the summation of four games worth of story, and an evolution of last year’s extremely unique multiplayer, Assassin’s Creed Revelations is striving to be the most complete AC adventure yet. While saying goodbye to Ezio and Altair leaves us wondering where the series will go next, the multiplayer has us salivating at the chance to assassinate our friends.
Are you interested in playing as The Sentinel in the Assassin’s Creed Revelations multiplayer modes? Do you think that Corruption brings enough “new” to the table to warrant hours of gamers’ time?
Assassin’s Creed Revelations is out now for the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC.
