I’m quite surprised that this wasn’t posted earlier, but at this years E3 we finally got to have a proper look at the new Assassin’s Creed game that will be released in November of this Year. It will be the third and final installment of the Ezio trilogy and is set years after the events of Brotherhood whereby Ezio is now old and grizzly as can be seen in the reveal trailer below.
The game itself is set in Constantinople (known as Istanbul in today’s world) and has Ezio traversing the landscape looking for keys hidden in the city to unlock the way to an artifact that Altaïr has sealed within the Assassin’s fortress as Masyaf. Yes that’s right, you will be returning to where it all began . It has even been confirmed that you will get to take control of Ezio, Altaïr and Desmond.
So far we know of a new blade type for Ezio called the Hookblade which has been said to increase Ezio’s movement around Constantinople drastically by enabling zip-wire like maneuvers. There will also be the ability to craft different bomb types too. According to Ubisoft, there will be over 300 craftable bomb variations. Shown in an E3 game play preview, Ezio can also be seen using a flame throwing cannon (because they had those back in the 1500’s) that looks to have been crafted by Leonardo DaVinci, though whether the inventor will be returning or not has yet to be confirmed.
Lastly, there was two more bits of information revealed about the upcoming title. The first being that multiplayer will be returning and is being further developed to enable a much more smoother and overall fun experience for players. Brotherhood’s multiplayer was new and innovative and broke the traditional multiplayer run and gun traditions that the likes of Call of Duty and Battlefield bring to the table. So that is something else to look forward to.
I mentioned there were two bits of information. Well, the final piece of information is in regards to a doorway that can be seen below. Nothing has been confirmed regarding this door, but I can only speculate that it has something to do with the “Black Room”. Simply put, it is a safe zone within the Animus that Desmond travels to in order to piece together his subconscious in order to awaken from the comatose state that he has been imprisoned within, in the Animus.
I’m pretty sure I saw this at the end of the fifth Harry Potter film…
