Assassin’s Creed: Revelations was developed and published by Ubisoft Montreal, and it was released for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on November 15, 2011.
The videogame continues the story from the previous chapter, known as Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood.
At the end of Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, Desmond Miles is in a coma caused by the breakdown of his mind. To save him, the Assassins put Desmond in a specialized area inside the Animus.
There, he meets Subject 16, who tells Desmond that his mind is broken and the only way he can return to reality, is to continue playing the memories of his ancestors until they have nothing else to show him. After that, the Animus will be able to separate all 3 memories.
After entering the memory portal, Desmond wakes up in the shoes of Ezio Auditore. The secrets Altair discovered captured Ezios attention, so he travels to Masyaf trying to unlock them.
He finds the stronghold overrun by the Templars who put a bounty on his head. He escapes to the dungeons and finds Altairs library.
Ezio learns that he needs five keys to unlock the door, that the Templars have one key and that the others are in Constatinople.
When he arrives in Constatinople, he meets the local leader of the Assassins, Yusuf Tazim. He finds out that the rest of the keys are hidden in the city by Niccolo Polo.
He meets Suleiman, a young student, and later he finds out that he is a prince. Ezio witnesses how Constantinople falls apart because of a war between Prince Ahmet and his brother Selim. He uncovers that behind this fight is Manuel Palaiologos and the Templars.
After he kills Manuel and finds the last key, Ezio goes back to Altairs library and enters. He is surprised to find out that inside the library lays Altairs skeleton and the sixth key. Ezio discovers that the library holds the real Apple of Eden.
He starts speaking with Desmond and tells him that he will retire and that he hopes that Desmond can find the answers to his questions.
Assassins Creed: Revelations features the same open-world gameplay, but there are also several new additions such as the hook blade and bombs.
Ezio can also craft 300 different bombs. Ubisoft also added seizing districts, but now, when a district is captured, Ezio must defend it from the Templars through a minigame where he controls a group of assassins. The videogame can be played in full 3D on all platforms.
