Ezio Returns in Assassin’s Creed Revelations

If you’ve been watching the news from Ubisoft, you know that a brand new Assassin’s Creed game is coming out in the series, Revelations.  And not just that, but good old Ezio Auditore will be returning.

Revelations: It's yet to be revealed whether or not Ezio will be overkill in this game

Now, don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love Ezio.  Who doesn’t? He walks a delicate line, appealing to both men and women in perfect balance.

However… I feel like he’s done.  Didn’t it seem that between AC2 and Brotherhood, he went from young to old?  It seemed to me that we saw the main points in his life, and thus got an overview of his entire life.  His story felt finished.  He’s done.  An amazing character’s story told, life complete, and so put to rest.  It will be overkill to keep having him in Assassin’s Creed games.

Not that I wouldn’t like to see him again.  I think he’s an amazing character.  Don’t assume that because of the ‘Ezio the Fraud’ post, I wouldn’t enjoy having Ezio around again in a game.  I felt that issue was fully resolved in Brotherhood.  But I doubt that he can keep appearing in the Assassin’s Creed series and still have his character’s integrity preserved.  What else could Ezio be squeezing in to his life that we wouldn’t have seen in AC2 or Brotherhood?

DAAAAAAMN... Ezio, you look OLD!!!

I have heard that Ezio will be older in this game, probably in his 50’s.  Just look at that Ezio picture.  DAMN.  Now, how will that work in the story?  Will he be more hunch-backed?  Will he need a walker?  How will the walker play into the assassin tools?  Will it shoot blow darts?  The news states that a new blade will be introduced in Revelations, the Hookblade.  However, won’t he be a little old to be hanging off the sides of buildings?  Won’t that wrench his shoulder?  Will he get out of breath easily, and will we hear him huffing and panting?  If he still shows the same amount of agility as seen in AC2 and Brotherhood, we here at PtC are calling shenanigans.

I do believe there’s more to the Desmond story.  Yes, absolutely.  That one’s obvious.  *SPOILER ALERT*  The last thing we saw from him was him stabbing Lucy.  It can’t end on THAT note.

And not only Ezio will return in this game as a playable character, but also Altair.  Let’s hope his story gets more interesting.  AND that his voice actor gets excited about portraying his character.  Sheesh, I think I could have done a better job than that guy.

Either way, I’m interested to see what Ubisoft does with Ezio in Assassin’s Creed Revelations.  Here’s to hoping the Ezio character isn’t overkill.

EDIT:  Interesting and good to know.  I just heard that this will be the last game featuring Ezio as the main character.
