Hello everyone and welcome back to Clevver Games, I'm your host Andrea Rene. Last week I went to the Ubisoft offices to check out part of the single-player campaign for their upcoming adventure game Assassin's Creed Revelations.
.
The fourth installment in the series will mark the end of the Ezio and Altair storylines with new developments for Desmond. I'll have more on him later but the real star of the game is Ezio Auditore. The now master assassin has traveled to a city called Musyaf in the heart of the Ottoman Empire. The map is roughly the size of Rome in Brotherhood but the storyline was designed to be more linear, despite the open world feel of the game. Don't worry, you'll still be able to side-quest to your hearts content, but the narrative will be easier to follow this time around.
.
The first sequence I played had Ezio meeting a member of a local Assassins Guild named Yusaf Tazim. You follow Yusaf through the city as he explains a little bit about how things work there. Once the fights break out, you'll quickly drop into combat if you've played previous Assassin's Creed games but learning moves with the new hook blade will take a bit of practice.
.
It is not only is it useful in combat, but it makes getting around significantly easier. Obviously climbing is a large part of the movement mechanic in the game, with specific challenges related just to your climbing skills. Using the hook blade when scaling buildings allows you to jump higher and farther. You can also use the hook blade to zipline around locations for fast traveling, and of course it wouldn't be complete without a sweet zipline assassination.
.
Creative Director Alex Amancio told me that you'll also be able to use dual weapons mapped to separate buttons in Revelations. This means you could stab with your sword in one motion, drop a bomb in another and you can even pick pocket people during combat! I personally wasn't able to master these moves during the time I had with the preview but Alex assured me it is not difficult to pick up.
.
Another revamped returning feature is Eagle Vision. In Brotherhood, Ezio's Eagle Vision allowed him to pinpoint hiding locations, lookout positions, and items in his surrounding that can be interacted with. Those abilities return, but better. Now that Ezio is older and wiser, his Eagle Vision allows him to specifically target people. In one mission where I was tasked with protecting Prince Suleiman from potential assassins. I used Eagle Vision to pinpoint targets to my allies waiting in hiding.
.
Speaking of which, your Assassin's network is back, but this time it is all about Mediterranean Defense. You will still need to send you allies out on missions to get experience and money, but there are new exotic locations like Jerusalem, Damascus, and Athens.
.
I will have more details about Assassin's Creed Revelations coming up this week so be on the lookout for lots more coverage including my interview with Alex Amancio, my look at the new bomb-crafting in Assassin's Creed, and more.
