Ubisoft has revealed the next downloadable content expansion for Assassin's Creed: Revelations, due to hit Xbox Live and PSN on January 24. Titled "Mediterranean Traveler Map Pack", the map bundle extends Assassin's Creed Revelations' stealthy multiplayer component with six new maps, each introducing unique play styles through varied terrain, perches and hideouts.
Players can journey to the majestic holy city of Jerusalem, the opulent imperial district of Constantinople and the colourful mercantile district of Dyers. Fans of the franchise can also revisit favourite Italian Renaissance maps from Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood specifically requested by Assassin’s Creed players to be included in the pack. To start, players will explore the historic city of Firenze (Florence), then travel to the mountains of San Donato and visit night time Siena with its carnival lights, talented performers and deadly hiding spots.For more on Assassin's Creed: Revelations, check out the AusGamers review here or swing by our game page for screenshots and trailers.

For fans of the Assassin's Creed series, you're finally about to get some closure.
It's arguable this should have come with the last Assassin's Creed outing Brotherhood, but Ubisoft felt they had too many loose ends to tie up before they could jump the series ahead to another era and another assassin proper, and Revelations is meant to not only be the series closer, in its current form, but also the stepping stone into the future of the franchise.
Does it deliver this in a compelling way? We asked Patrick Stafford to run it through its paces -- as an avid fan of the previous outing -- and he came away with mixed feelings.

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. This seems to be the mantra that many a publisher applies to their respective series that have regular releases. Take Assassin’s Creed for example. There’s a new game, Assassin’s Creed: Revelations, scheduled for release mid-November that continues the story of Ezio; apparently, tying things in more closely with the seemingly abandoned Altaïr from the original game.
“Assassin’s Creed Revelations follows master assassin Ezio Auditore as he walks in the footsteps of his legendary mentor, Altaïr, on a journey to recover five ancient seals that hold the keys to the future of the Assassins brotherhood. It is a perilous path – one that will take Ezio to Constantinople, the heart of the Ottoman Empire, where a growing army of Templars threatens to destabilize the region.”Take a look at the gameplay trailer below and we’ve uploaded some new screenshots to the Revelations game page.

Assassin’s Creed: Revelations, off the bat, is the game that’s going to tie the last three games together. It’s going to tie all of the loose strings and synchronise everything, so that the already convoluted and expansive Assassin’s Creed universe finally has some structure and you, as the player, some narrative reward for all your hard work.

A few weeks have past since the official unveiling of Assassin's Creed: Revelations, the next game in the successful franchise that will see players once again returning to the tale of Ezio Auditore in during The Renaisance period, but we only had one solitary screenshot to look at.
Today, Ubisoft have thrown another couple of bones our way with two more images and a teaser trailer.
Assassin’s Creed Revelations follows master assassin Ezio Auditore as he walks in the footsteps of his legendary mentor, Altaïr, on a journey to recover five ancient seals that hold the keys to the future of the Assassins brotherhood. It is a perilous path – one that will take Ezio to Constantinople, the heart of the Ottoman Empire, where a growing army of Templars threatens to destabilise the region.Unfortunately however, the debut clip, titled "New Truths" appears to only be a pre-cursor to another trailer that's due for release on June 6th, the day of Ubisoft's E3 conference. In other words: thank you Ezio, but our trailer is in another castle.
Nevertheless, check out the embed below (or click here for HD) to pass your own judgement.
Assassin's Creed: Revelations is due on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 and PC (apparently without a delay this time) in November 2011.
