THE BUZZ: In Ubisoft’s latest Assassin’s Creed Revelation Q&As, the team reveals Ezio’s weak points and the reason behind the change in location.
According to Ubisoft, Ezio has passed the Master Assassin stage and has therefore eliminated the majority of weaknesses, however the AI in the game is now more intelligent and quicker meaning that you won’t just walk all over everything. It was mentioned that most of the enemies you will fight are far below his skill level. Next the reasons behind the game’s new setting were explained, the major reason being that Ezio’s work in Rome is done, however the team also likes to pick time periods that are steeped in history and allow their creative minds to run wild, so Constantinople shortly after the Ottoman takeover was perfect.
EGM’s TAKE: Thinking about it, Ezio has no weaknesses except the fact that he’s now nearly 60 years old!
What other time periods would you like to see the franchise explore?
