Assassin's Creed Reveals Constantinople


There's a bit, 1m40s in, into this new Assassin's Creed Revelations trailer that I feel is a microcosm for how Ubisoft views the PC. A guard stands over a collapsed and bloodied man, who represents the PC gamers excited by the game but who have to wait for them to kick the console beta version out first. The guard then punches the downed man. The fist is Ubisoft's DRM.

I still want to play it. Even though I've never managed to finish a single game, I've loved Ezio's rooftop murdering ways, and Constantinople's roofs are the prettiest yet. There's some stuff in the trailer about the story, no doubt, but I spend so much time climbing, running and jumping that I've no idea why Ezio is killing people at this point, or who Desmond is. It's going to get even more confusing when the game leaps to first-person in certain missions. I'll wait for the audio book.

It's out in December on the PC.
