Next Assassin’s Creed going all new.

It appears Ubisoft is looking to change up the next Assassin’s Creed again by bringing some new elements. First up is a new hero. Yes a new Assassin already. Secondly will be a new time period for the game. Lastly we can expect a new developer for the game.
I’m pretty sad that we haven’t heard about a new side chapter like AC: Brotherhood or Revelations. Ubisoft spent a lot of time getting us to become familiar with Connor to just dump him for another new face and new backstory. Connor is still ripe for adventure, especially in the Revolutionary America time frame. Why not give us a fall sequel like they’ve been doing? After Brotherhood and Revelations, it seems so right.
The surprising thing is that they’re using a new developer for the game. Ubisoft Montreal has done a bang up job of the franchise so far, why dump them? And who is this mystery developer? Are they going to the recently purchased THQ Montreal? Inquiring minds want to know!
Ubisoft says the next Assassin’s Creed should be out before April 2014. More details will be forthcoming.

Why Assassin’s Creed Revelations will ruin your life

The Assassin’s Creed series has gone from strength to strength and Revelations is by far the best of the series to date. Everything has been refined from combat to multiplayer, and it really makes a noticeable difference. Ezio has travelled to Constantinople to find 5 “Masayaf Keys” in order to open Altair’s library which is concealed underneath the old Assassin’s fortress in Masayaf. Now don’t worry if you’re a new comer to the Assassin’s Creed franchise because everything you need to know is explained as you play through the game.
As for the campaign, there are two parallel stories which you have to deal with. Firstly and most importantly the hunt for the Masayaf Keys and secondly unravelling the cause of a violent power struggle in Constantinople. Both these campaigns are very gripping and no longer have the tedious feel that the other Assassins Creed games suffered from. The characters are lovable (or hateable), such as the animated Ysuf Tazim ”da Istanbul”, so much so that I felt tinge of sadness when one particular character died.
