It would seem that the special Animus Edition of the upcoming Assassin’s Creed: Revelations will bring with it a side mission that will re-introduce Vlad the Impaler in a larger role than he was given in Brotherhood (you could find and collect his coins). Sadly, it doesn’t sound as if Revelations will pit Ezio against the infamous Vlad the Impaler from which the legend of Dracula was born. Instead it looks like you’ll be exploring Vlad’s prison where you’ll be tasked with finding his hanging cell that holds within it his personal blade. Vlad’s blade is a deadly close quarters dagger that’s more than capable of vanquishing any enemies that are unlucky enough to get in your way.
I for one would’ve loved to see everyone’s favorite assassin go up against Dracula, adding a welcome dose of horror to an otherwise fantastic series, but this works too. I’m pretty sure turning Ezio into a vampire hunter would’ve made the already complex narrative a little too bizarre. Head past the break to see what else the Animus Edition includes. READ MORE
I love me some Assassin’s Creed. Even if you’re not a huge fan of the series, though I don’t see how you couldn’t be, there’s no arguing Ubisoft’s impressive ability to vastly improve on each subsequent release. The protagonist from Assassin’s Creed 2 and Brotherhood will be returning in Revelations, and it’s obvious that quite a few years have passed since we last saw Ezio. At E3 earlier today we were given our first look at the game’s trailer debut, and while it’s no secret that I’m fond of the Assassin’s Creed trailers, this one is also pretty fantastic.
Unfortunately, despite my growing man crush on Ezio and his miraculous ability to mow down waves of soldiers and climb small towers in seconds, Revelations will be that final game that features him. Ezio, my darling, you will be missed. Here’s to hoping you go out with a bang. READ MORE
It’s that time of year. And by that I mean the time of year where companies start rolling out their lists of video games they will be showing off at this years E3 convention. Some small companies thus far have announced their games, but there isn’t anything noteworthy.
That brings us to Ubisoft, who have been around for going on 25 years, and brought us tons of amazing games. Their line up looks pretty decent, but I’m expecting better from some other companies. Head past the break to see their line up. READ MORE
