Sit back and settle in, because I’ve got three videos for Assassin’s Creed Revelations that show off its awesomeness in three very different ways. These are required viewing. Seriously, you have to watch. There could be a quiz later.
The first one, above, is a fully cinematic, pre-rendered CG trailer. It’s similar to the one seen at E3, but with extended footage and more of the game’s story on display.
The next one zeroes in on the Hookblade, the new Assassin weapon that Ezio acquires when he travels to Constantinople. As the video explains, Assassins in this city have their own way of doing things, which primarily revolves around the use of the Hookblade for climbing and zip-lining, as well as fighting. I can’t wait to try out this new weapon. It’s a simple idea but it looks like it will transform every aspect of what Assassins do.
For the last trailer, I offer you a warning: if you’re opposed to violence, run as far from this video as you possibly can. Because it’s two minutes of bloody death, dealt at the hands of Ezio himself. Is it just me, or does Ezio seem more brutal, more vicious than he used to be? Maybe it’s part of his character arc. Or maybe it’s just the rock music. Decide for yourself.
Is it November yet?
