Assassin’s Creed Revelations Review

I was very lucky in that at Christmas this year I got exactly what I wanted and one of those things was Assassin’s Creed Revelations (or as I like to call it Assassin’s Creed 2.2). Carrying on from Brotherhood, Desmond is now stuck in the animus and in order to leave he has to seperate his conciousness from Altair’s and Ezio’s, and he does this by reliving some of Ezio’s life. This is the final Assassin’s Creed featuring Ezio Auditore as the main character in which he travels to Masyaf, from the original Assassin’s Creed (still not sure if there should be that apostrophe there or not), searching for library of Altair. Why he’s searching for it isn’t really explained other than the fact that it contains lots of delicious wisdom.

Anyway, while in Masyaf he is attacked by Templars (led by evil-bald-guy-with-a-cape) and the cinematic trailer takes place. The game itself starts right after the cinematic trailer finishes and Ezio then kills a bunch of bad-guys with his awesome and discovers that he needs 5 keys to open the door to Altair’s library. So off he heads to Constantinople (today called Istanbul) in search of the five keys and while there he has to liberate the city from the Templars and pretty much the rest of the Mediterranean via his apprentices.

Assassin’s Creed Revelations (Aaah Ezio)

Today see’s the release of Assassin’s Creed Revelations and the last entry into the story of Ezio Auditore da Firenze. I feel both a deep sense of awesome and sadness that this will be the last we see of Ezio.

I also feel a deep sense of absolute rajness because I actually haven’t got Revelations yet for the same reason I haven’t got Skyrim yet. I wouldn’t be able to play it! If you need any more convincing that Assassin’s Creed is awesome you can check the launch trailer after the jump

Assassin’s Creed Embers: New Trailer

There has been a lot of videos on MMGaming lately and not much news about actual games (but I have given a likely explanation for that) and this post is no exception. What you will see here are two trailers for Assassin’s Creed Embers, a short animated film that focuses on events years after Revelations (spoiler for Revelations… Ezio doesn’t die…). The film will probably be found somewhere on the internet after it’s release (15th of November alongside Revelations) but right now as far as I am aware it will only avaliable to those who have ordered the Animus, Collector, and Signature Editions of Assassin’s Creed: Revelations.

Actually this isn’t the first short animated film made by Ubisoft focuses on Assassin’s Creed. Assassin’s Creed Ascendance came out last year alongside Brotherhood. Well I now know what I’m going to be watching tonight! Trailers after the jump: Continue reading

Oh I’m sorry… You thought you’d won?

I mean, we’d never ACTUALLY thought “bald-guy-with-a-cape” could possibly have bested Ezio. The trailer only cut of where it did to add suspense and drama. But really it was a foregone conclusion. But hey! Now we get to find out! Ubisoft have released an extended edition of the Assassin’s Creed Revelations cinematic trailer which adds some extra awesome for everyone! Check it here after the jump!

Sicarius: Song of the Week

Some of you may know that Ubisoft recently held a competition where the winner would be the leading voice for the main theme song for Assassin’s Creed Revelations. And no… the song ISN’T Iron by Woodkid…

Basically the composer Lorne Balfe and Hans Zimmer (something of a legend by the way as he also composed the music in the Dark Knight and Inception) had already composed the music and set it in the public domain. Ambitious singers had to listen to the track and record themselves singing along with it. The recordings were then judged and a winner chosen. Continue reading
