This is the fourth installment in the Assassin’s Creed series, which was released today. If you pre-ordered it from EB or gamestop.ca you get a free upgrade to the “Signature Edition”. Which you get:
- Ezio Ultimate Armour (Singleplayer)
- Play as two additional multiplayer characters: The Crusader & a character from Assassin’s Creed® Brotherhood revamped with a Constantinople flavour: the Ottoman Doctor
- Plus some other cool stuff, Like multi player characters, and expansions packs to hold bullets, and bombs!
In this version of AC you are still playing as Ezio, making his way though the Renaissance era. The upside to this game, and something that has had fans ,like myself, wondering; Will you get to play as Altair or not, and will there be co-op. I think the answer to both these questions, as far as I’ve researched, is a no. But on the upside, Ezio now gets a hookblade, and 300 different bomb variations which you learn to craft yourself.
For the multi player aspect of the game, the awesome multi player you came to love (except the matching system, which I hope is better in this installment) is back. You can now customize your character’s appearance, weapon, start a guild and even create your guild’s own crest. As the below video talks about, in the multi player, You play as a templar agent, and as your rank increases in the game, So will your insight to how the organization is run. Also from what I have gathered from online(Haven’t gotten the actual game yet, It’s waiting for me at Purlator!), there is a new game mode: Deathmatch! Where you don’t have compass to guide you to your target, instead it takes a page from every FPS out there, you have a mini map. Once you get into the area of your target, the dot will glow blue.
Here is a video that gives you a good idea of what to expect. All I can say is that I am beyond PUMPED to play this game, and close a chapter to Ezio’s story.
Here is a youtube video that sums up everything pretty well! SPOILER ALERT!
