Assassin’s Creed: Revelations features Ezio as an old man

Monday, 9th May 2011 10:44 GMT By Jessica Citizen

Time waits for no man – not even Ezio Auditore. Assassin’s Creed: Revelations is the third game where you’ll be able to play the Italian assassin, and he’s looking a little worse for wear.

Assassin's Creed: Revelations

The latest edition of Game Informer reveals the sneaky star of the past few games is now nudging 50 years old. By today’s standard, that means he should be settling into the prime of his life (or so they tell me), but 500 years ago, being the wrong side of 30 meant it was all downhill from there.

Of course, in Ezio’s case, it’s also uphill, over walls and generally running around like some sort of small rodent – but it’ll be interesting to see how exactly age has wearied our intrepid assassin.

This time around, he’s got new tricks (love the sound of the new zipline system), and the new city of Constantinople to explore. The ability to handcraft bomb recipes has been added, while Eagle Vision has been improved (Ezio being the only man who’s vision gets better with age).

A major change, however, is that the traditional side missions have been removed. Instead, they’re replaced by “random events”, which will present you with smaller missions as you explore the city.

It’s all a bit interesting, which is probably why Game Informer chose the ladies man as their June cover star. Tip of the hat to Kotaku!

    Walking-stick sword. And I bet you could clout somebody a corker with a zimmer frame.

    Will the rest of the cast still be frozen in time like they were in AC2 & Brotherhood?

    Taking the Red Dead: Redemption route with side missions? Not a bad idea.
    I’d assume that part way through the game we gain control of one of his children?

    Cant say i like the idea of side missions being replaced with ‘random events’. In RDR it just meant that you were constantly badgered with repetitive, worthless events.

    Maybe they’ll do the whole MGS4 thing where you run around like a mad man in gameplay but in cutscenes your asthma and arthiritus kick in.

    The old man is not Ezio, he is Altair. If you’ve watched the teaser at the beginning when animus tries to load Ezio’s ddna file it fails. And what’s written in arabic is Altair ibAlahad.

    Altair has that scar too. As does Desmond.

    But yeah, thats Ezio, and he’ll apparently come across memories where you’ll play as Altair.
