At E3 last week, Ubisoft wowed us with gameplay footage and a description of the upcoming Assassin’s Creed Revelations. That footage quickly (and unsurprisingly) made it online. Ubisoft then decided that if everyone was going to watch the clip anyway, you might as well see it in context.
If you missed the clip the first time around, the setup is that Ezio is in Constantinople making friends with the Ottoman Empire—meaning they all want to kill him. The moment displayed is from about halfway through the game, as Ezio is after a Templar that has fled by boat. To pursue, he must follow in a similar fashion. The Ottomans have other ideas though, and they block the harbor thinking that it will lead to the capture of the master assassin. This was a mistake.
