“I have lived my life to the best of my ability. But I have not been able to escape fate, anger, or pain. Bring me the answers and the road that leads to the truth. Reveal to me once and for all, how all of this will end.” These are the words speaken from Ezio Auditore da Firence in Assassin’s Creed revelations trailer .
Revelations continues the story of Desmond Miles, who has fallen into a coma due to the events of the previous game. In order for him to awaken again, Desmond must relive the last significant memories of his ancestor, the Assassin MentorEzio Auditore da Firenze, who sought out the secret library of the Mentor of the Levantine Assassins, Altaïr Ibn-La’Ahad, in 1511.
A sequel to Revelations was announced in March 2012, entitled Assassin’s Creed III, and was released in October of the same year.
Revelations retains the gameplay from its preceding titles, albeit considerably renewed. Freerunning has been improved with the addition of the Hookblade, a key item given to Ezio that helps him traverse the city faster and more efficiently. To coincide with the Hookblade, numerous ziplines could be found all over the city’s rooftops, which decreases travel time.
In addition to navigation, the Hookblade is also used for combat, and is also one of the newer gameplay elements in fighting. With the Hookblade, Ezio is able to pickpocket an enemy mid-combat, as well as using it to be an aid in escaping combat – utilizing the “hook-and-run” technique – and creating environment hazards, such as causing a scaffold to fall.
Aside from the Hookblade, a multitude of bombs have been introduced alongside an improved version of previous games’ smoke bombs. Ezio can utilize a wide selection of bombs, ranging from lethal effects and traps, to distraction purposes and chase-breakers. To do this, Ezio can craft from numerous stations situated across Constantinople, using a variety of materials that change the effectiveness and the overall use of the bomb.
Ezio’s Eagle Vision has also been revamped, with added features resulting in the maturation of the technique. Now known as “Eagle Sense,” Ezio is able to track his enemies and pick off their individual trails, making tailing people more efficient. In addition, Eagle Sense can also discern disguised enemies, the scent of datura, and the heartbeat of an individual.
