Full length video coming June 7, Ubi confirms

Ubisoft's released the first proper trailer for Assassin's Creed Revelations, alongside new screens and a brief recap of the game's features.

"Assassin's Creed Revelations follows master assassin Ezio Auditore as he walks in the footsteps of his legendary mentor, Alta´r, on a journey to recover five ancient seals that hold the keys to the future of the Assassins brotherhood," reads the official blurb.

"It is a perilous path - one that will take Ezio to Constantinople, the heart of the Ottoman Empire, where a growing army of Templars threatens to destabilize the region."

A full trailer for the game will be released on June 7, says Ubisoft, which is the day after its E3 press conference.
