New Assassin’s Creed teaser features assassin, numbers

Thursday, 5th May 2011 13:23 GMT By Johnny Cullen

Another day, another teaser in regards to the new Assassin’s Creed, this time showing an assassin on screen.

The teaser shows an unknown assassin in the clip, as well as the numbers “11011165″, which looks like a date. If it is indeed 1165AD, it’ll mean it’ll take place 26 years before the start of Assassin’s Creed 1 and Altair.

Earlier this week, the third teaser suggested a period that would be in relation to Assassin’s Creed II and Brotherhood, which both took place in the 1400s.

Watch the new video below. The game, expected to be called Revelations, will be announced this month.

    Is it possible that this could be a handheld game?

    11th, January or November the 1st 1165 ring any bells? Which countries do the month first when writing down the date?

    It’ll be set in both time periods. Altair will do things and leave them for Ezio to pick up later. Like in Day of the Tentacle. But with fewer deep-frozen hamsters.

    11/01/1165 – Altair’s Birth Date
    24th June 1459 – Ezio’s Birth Date

    A lot of current speculation points to there being two or more protagonists this time around (due to an issue with the new Animus 2.3) One looks like Altair and the other will probably be revealed in the next phase. The double headed Eagle lends credence to this theory.

    I really hope that I don’t have to play as fucking Ezio in Renaissance Italy again. Would really like to see a new time period and assassin like in Feudal Japan or during the American Revolutionary War. If the game ends up switching between Altair and Ezio i’m definitely going to be disappointed.

    American Revolutionary War? Can you have a more boring setting?

    Russian Revolution all the way! That’s actually the first thing i was thinking when i saw the eagle with the two heads.

    The Russian or the French one could be cool too. As long as it isn’t Renaissance Italy again its all good lol.

    This isn’t a handheld game, as Geoffroy Sardin from Ubi said “… I can say is that next year [2011] we will have another big Assassin’s Creed game.”

    I’ve already placed my bets it’ll be NGP/PSP2.

    @8: Ugh, you can say that again. I really didn’t like that setting. And the Italian accent got really annoying, really fast.

    What was wrong with the Italy Renaissance setting. I enjoyed it and didn’t find anything annoying or tedious about it at all. It was interesting to play in an environment that was so different from the games we play today (the same with the first). Is it just because the setting has already been in two games?
    @12 Anyone can say accents in any media piece gets annoying and it means nothing, you have to have an accent its impossible not to have one (although you can over exaggerate them (but I didn’t find that in any of the AC games)).

    okay the double head bird seen in the vid is the emblem of the Knights of Malta

    altair was born in 1165 but as for the specific month and day that is not known, though @4 might be right, i’m thinking that the game is going to take place in istanbul and greece showing the history of how altair is tied to ezio, either way going by the sub-title alone the game wll have “Revelations” that may give us more of the back story to the AC world

    @13: Don’t get me wrong, the setting was okay, but i don’t want ever to see it again. The setting of the first one was way more interesting, it just such a shame that the gameplay wasn’t as good as in AC 2. And the accents annoyed me because i’m annoyed by fake Italian accents. Played the game with german dub, which had thankfully no accents at all.

    Accents are stupid. Either you make the game in one language or you don’t use accents. There is simply no reason to use accents. I don’t remember clearly, but did Altair had an accent? If he didn’t have an accent, why does Ezio has one? Does the new Animus feature Accents?

    Did Russel Crowe had an Accent in Gladiator?

    The Double headed Eagle is The Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople (Istanbul), based on insignia of the Byzantine Empire. It can be seen holding 2 powerful Pieces of Eden (The Sword and The Apple).

    The head on the left (West) symbolizes Rome, the head on the right (East) symbolizes Constantinople. One of the dates in the reveal points to the Istanbul Earthquake of 1509 (10th September 1509), and Istanbul was historically known as Constantinople.

    2 Assassini, 2 timelines. The game might involve the player exploring what links the 2 besides a bloodline.

    If they were going to feature 2 assassins in the game how would that work in terms of gear and currency?if you have a weapon set in one timeline does it carry onto the next?i dont see how they would do it.

    More of those accents but maybe no more Italy.
    My point on the accents was the fact that you HAVE to have an accent. As in it has to be something, like British, US or old Italian there is no neutral accent. Problem is someone somewhere is going to dislike the accent no matter what you chose.
