Assassin's Creed: Revelations Hands-On Impressions

Assassins Creed Revelations

Our ace-writer Miguel "The Obliterater" Concepcion got a chance to play the single-player portion of Assassin's Creed: Revelations at a recent event, and while his experience revealed a lot about the historical connection between Ezio and Altair and other juicy details, I'll bet you want to hear about the new hookblade most of all. Here's a description of the deadly-but-useful gadget:

"It is a multipurpose device that extends the user’s reach, adding a bit of ease to much of the game’s climbing and ensuring those building-to-building leaps go smoothly. If you’re using it as a personal zip-line, you can end your ride early and take out unsuspecting foes from above. If you’re making an on-foot getaway, you can use this to acrobatically flip Ezio over guards’ backs. The one capability of the hookblade that stood out for me was how you can use hanging lamps to open up new options for traversing buildings and structures."
