Now that the cat is out of the bag concerning Assassin’s Creed Revelations, the forthcoming next entry in the popular Assassin’s Creed franchise, Ubisoft has thought it best to begin teasing the project themselves. Over on their Facebook page, the developer has slowly been releasing a set of teaser videos none of which reveal much, but should do well to get the hype machine rolling.
Most will find nothing of interest in the three videos as each one is just as vague as the next, but particular attention will be paid to the final video, which, on the left side, shows a partially obscured hidden blade. Some are claiming the background buildings and hidden blade indicate Assassin’s Creed Revelations might be heading back to the storyline of Altair, but so early on in the teaser campaign it’s too hard to tell.
Also, in the first teaser video, can be seen the name Auditore which might suggest an all encompassing Assassin’s Creed game — one that features both the Ezio and Altair storylines. However, more likely is that these teaser videos will point towards the past games only to illuminate elements that will be important in Revelations, perhaps which time period the game might head to next.
Gamers who are seeking more information in regards to Assassin’s Creed Revelations should visit the Assassin’s Creed Facebook page and post a message via email, Twitter, or on their own Facebook. Contained on the Facebook page is an activity monitor (currently clocking in at 12%) that we presume will deliver a much juicier reveal once the monitor hits 100%.
Unfortunately, with the rate of these types of reveals, and E3 set for early June, Assassin’s Creed Revelations could very easily be detailed before the social “game” finishes. At times, trying to get fans to rally together on a game’s Facebook page nets those dedicated an early reveal, but most times the company decides to spread the news early anyway.
While many were hoping that what is now called Assassin’s Creed Revelations was the next numbered entry in the series — one that would feature a new protagonist and a new time period — the teaser videos may have dashed those hopes. Until Ubisoft sees fit to release plot details about Revelations it’s safe to assume any time period is possible, but don’t be surprised if the developer revisits Altair and the Middle East.
