With E3 2011 just weeks away, its starting to feel like our first hands on with Assassin’s Creed Revelations is just around the corner. With the addition of the hookblade and bombs, coupled with a new Eagle Sense that allows players to see the paths of their enemies, gameplay could change considerably in the latest addition to the franchise. To help get everyone pumped for what E3 will bring us, Ubisoft has released a brand new trailer and some new screens.
Assassin’s Creed Revelations will be taking players to the city of Constantinople as Ezio’s newfound position as a Master Assassin leaves him searching for a greater purpose in life. As he follows in the footsteps of legendary Grand Master Assassin Altair Ibn-La’Ahad, his journey will take him to former Assassin stronghold Masyaf, now overrun with Templars, as well as Constantinople and the underground Templar fortress beneath Cappadocia.
While the trailer doesn’t show any gameplay footage, it does appear to tease the opening cinematic from Assassin’s Creed Revelations. Watch it below.
The trailer’s first image of Ezio shows him walking through the arches near Masyaf, which you may remember from the first game. Intercut between images of Ezio fighting in his present are images of Altair fighting similar battles in the past. Finally, the last clip shows an assassin’s blade being broken by a sword. It’s difficult to discern who the assassin is, but it could mean that either Ezio or Altair’s last moments will be relived in Revelations.
Here are the new screenshots which showcase a beautiful variation in scenery in the stark contrast between Masyaf and Imperial North Port in Constantine.
You can clearly see Ezio’s hookblade in all the screenshots, and the last screenshot shows Ezio using one of the Ziplines located around the city to move quickly between two points. The guard doesn’t look unsuspecting, so it may be that guards can see you coming and react before you manage to launch a surprise attack.
Ubisoft included a couple of concept images as well, showing the Constantinople skyline and a shipyard where a ship is under construction.
As if there wasn’t enough reason to be excited about E3 this year, Ubisoft has promised a full Revelations trailer will become available on the first day of E3, June 7, 2011. Until then, did the teaser trailer give you shivers of excitement as well?
Assassin’s Creed Revelations will be taking gamers to Constantinople on November 15, 2011 for the Xbox 360, PC, and PS3.
