Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed: Revelations is due to get a new faction, which is sure to send the game in a different direction. The game is due to be released in November, but players won’t be able to see any Courtesans roaming the streets.
Courtesans weren’t very popular in 1400’s Constantinople and were often stoned to death for their scandalous behaviour. So with that in mind, Ubisoft has opted to replace them with the Romani gypsies, who will provide excellent distractions for the guards in the form of street performers.
Ubisoft also has big plans for their unnamed Assassin’s Creed Wii U title, and recently said that the controller could be used to display a persistent mini-map, navigate the information database, quick-select weapons or solve unique puzzles.
