Assassin's Creed: Revelations' Gamescom Trailer Reminds Us What It's Like to Play as Altair Again

We've known for some time now that, among other things, Altair would be making his comeback as a playable character in this fall's Assassin's Creed: Revelations.


Now we get our first glimpse of what that looks like in this new, dubstep-infused Gamescom trailer.

Oh, and pay close attention towards the end for a blink-and-you'll-miss-it cameo by someone who looks an awful lot like Desmond— but something's different, and he doesn't quite look like the Desmond we saw last. Feel free to speculate on what's in store for our present-day protagonist.

Does anyone pay attention to the story in this game? I mean I did and it still doesn't make sense. I am currently waiting for my copy of AC1 to arrive though (Stolen by movers a while back) so I can replay the whole series from the beggining. Maybe starting fresh I'll understand and get more involved in the universe. Realy though, how many people actually care and aren't just in it for the gameplay?

P.S I hate that this comes out 4 days after Skyrim. I'll have hardly scratched the surface of Skyrim and then I'll feel obligated to play this.
