May 5, 2011Written by Sebastian Moss

After some teasers and a Facebook post for Assassin’s Creed: Revelations, Ubisoft have officially announced the latest game in their 28 million selling open-world platforming series.

Developed and led by Ubisoft Montreal with the support of Ubisoft studios Annecy, Massive Entertainment, Quebec, Singapore and Bucharest, the publisher claims that Revelations presents the “most immersive experience available in the series to date”.  Ezio Auditore will once again return for his third and final time, following in the footsteps of Altaïr on a “journey of discovery and revelation”. Ezio will travel to Constantinople, the heart of the Ottoman Empire, where a growing army of Templars threatens to destabilize the region.

The developer has also touted “revolutionary gameplay”, where players can manipulate the construct of Desmond’s memories and the Animus to decipher the mysteries of his past and gain insight into the future. Multiplayer will return with more modes, more maps and more characters.

Alexandre Amancio, Creative Director at Ubisoft Montreal said:

Delivering the final chapter of the Ezio trilogy is an important milestone in the Assassin’s Creed franchise for us and for our fans

Assassin’s Creed Revelations includes lots of new features and some significant surprises. We can’t wait to show our fans what we have in store at E3 this year.

More details of Revelations will be in the June issue of Game Informer, as well as at next month’s E3.

Revelations will be coming to the PS3, 360 and PC this November. Are you excited for a new Assassin’s Creed, or are you upset that the game still focuses on Ezio and his lifetime? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
