Talk about aging gracefully. Ezio Auditore, protagonist of Assassin’s Creed II, Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood, and the forthcoming Assassin’s Creed Revelations, is nearing the end of his years in the new game. But he’s never looked more lethal.
Not only has age not slowed Ezio down, but he’s acquired a whole new collection of moves and gadgets. As seen at Germany’s Gamescom convention, AC Revelations has a new trailer, which is noteworthy because it’s comprised entirely of in-game footage — no CG here. In it, Ezio shows us what’s new, while flashing back to the life of his ancestor, Altaïr.
Revelations is said to conclude Ezio’s story by bringing everything full circle back to where things began, with Altaïr, and tying the two characters together somehow. You won’t see Desmond in this trailer, but the smart money is on The Dez as that “somehow” that unites the stories of his ancestors.
Check out the new artwork below and the trailer above.
