In this gorgeous cinematic trailer for Assassin's Creed: Revelations, Ezio shows no sign of being slowed down by old age, except for the odd hallucination of the assassin that came before him.
In Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood our friend Ezio's travels take him to Constantinople, heart of the Ottoman Empire, where no man's feet need touch the floor while seated. We know he's following in the footsteps of Assassin's Creed's Altair, but why?
After a week or so of vigorous teasing, Ubisoft finally lifts the curtain on Assassin's Creed Revelations, the third and final chapter in the Ezio trilogy, coming to the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC this November.
Looking at a trailer for Velayutham, a Tamil-language film that opened this week, I'm betting its story is not canonical to the Assassin's Creed continuity. It's made by a producer famously unconcerned about infringing on others' marks as well.
Take for example the loss of Altair's ring finger on his hidden-knife-hand. From playing Assassin's Creed, we know he lost it as part of the Assassin's initiation. But try as I might, I can't remember actually seeing that happen in the game — I only remember internalizing Altair's missing finger as fact.
