Assassin's Creed: Revelations locations revealed

The cities you'll visit in Ezio's third outing

The Assassin's Creed series is responsible for some of the most intricate and interesting virtual depictions of historical cities in games, and you'll be seeing some new locales in the next game, Assassin's Creed: Revelations.

The game's creative director Alexandre Amancio has detailed the four major locations Ezio will be hopping, skipping and jumping through in his third quest.


The game starts off in Masyaf (remember, AC1 fans?) where Ezio goes for information once held by Altair. "He wants to find the library there to learn more about the Order. He follows the footsteps of Altair to Masyaf. What begins as a pilgrimage turns into a race against time," explains Amancio.

The next location, and the main city of the game, is Constantinople - a large city split into four main sections. "Constantinople is a massive city. It actually spans two continents - on one side is Europe, and other Asia, said Amancio.

"This is the center of the known world at that time. The spice trading and all that related trade happened through Constantinople. It was one of the main reasons that Europeans tried to go around Africa - because Constantinople was this great hub controlled by the Ottomans. And, essentially, everything needed to go through that city."

Cappadocia is a Templar city full of caverns and tunnels, and will be a complete surprise to AC fans because it's almost entirely underground. "This is the first time something like this has been done in the franchise. We have this complete underground city," said Amancio.

And finally Rhodes will feature in the game, although Game Informer says "Ezio won't necessarily travel there". This town is currently only confirmed as a multiplayer map but the feature doesn't rule out its appearance in the single-player game.

The full feature through the source link has more info, although we'd think twice if you're concerned with spoilers.

Ubisoft also recently revealed a few of the new characters that will be joining Ezio and Altair in Assassin's Creed Revelations.

The game's set for release in November.
