Assassin’s Creed: Revelations’ Gamescom Trailer Reminds Us What It’s Like To Play As Altair Again

We’ve known for some time now that, among other things, Altair would be making his comeback as a playable character in this spring’s Assassin’s Creed: Revelations.

Now we get our first glimpse of what that looks like in this new, dubstep-infused Gamescom trailer.

Oh, and pay close attention towards the end for a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it cameo by someone who looks an awful lot like Desmond — but something’s different, and he doesn’t quite look like the Desmond we saw last. Feel free to speculate on what’s in store for our present-day protagonist.


  • Pardon my wilfull ignorance on all things mainstream, but why is it every third thing I see these days makes references to this “Dubstep” crap?

    Just what the hell is it and why did this garbage become so popular?

    • Dubstep is an alternative genre of EDM. Its an off-shoot of Drum and Bass and old school UK Speed garage. At the moment its the biggest thing in electronic music. But that will fade.

      Jungalists will always reign supreme.

  • Well if we’re speculating, I think that mystery bloke is the REAL character you’re playing, desmond is the memory that guy is exploring in an even more future animus and he’s trying to look at memories within memories for some mystical doohickey

  • Worst release date.

    A week after Skyrim and the same day as Saints Row the Third.

    I want this, but goddamn, looks like it’s one for next year.

    Also, Dubstep sure is horrible

  • All the dubstep hate makes me lol. I hate pretty much all electro stuff but I quite enjoy some good dubstep (though good dubstep songs are few and far between).

  • @all the dubstep hate, haters are gonna hate. ubisoft used genesis by justice for AC2 and that edgy hard electro/dub music works well as backing to make ezio look total badass

  • That’s deff desmond. Same clothes as acb but opposite color bc he’s in the black room. He’s aged quite bit so im curious to how late in the ac timeline it is and maybe its just me but his eyes look like he knows something now that he didn’t before.
