Secrets of the Ottoman Assassins Revealed
Between Skyrim, Modern Warfare 2 and Assassin's Creed Revelations, I'm not quite sure how I'm going to cope in November, let alone eat! It's perhaps the most important month of the gaming year, with the big publishers saving their even bigger hitters for this precious date. Ubisoft have quite a fight on their hands convincing gamers to spare time and money away from MW3 and Skyrim to pick up Revelations, but judging by these two videos from the Secrets of the Ottoman Assassins series, I wouldn't count out Ezio in November just yet.
The first of the AC Revelations videos has Ezio arriving in Constantinople to greet his assassin cousins. "Where is your hook-blade, Ezio?" one asks, to which Ezio can only reply, "hook-blade?". His compatriot hands him an exotic gauntlet housing the all new and improved hook-blade, which can be used to climb faster, rappel down zip-lines and even upgrades your combat repertoire.
Next up, bombs. Ubisoft is pretty proud of their bomb-crafting system, and the second Ottoman Assassins episode shows off all the different types you can produce. Some distract guards away from their post, others cause distractions by showing gold coins everywhere, prompting a surge of peasants to converge on the area. Others, of course, simply blow up. Which is handy when you have an entire battalion on your case.
The next episode isn't far away. Stay tuned for more!
