Assassin’s Creed Revelations will feature first-person platforming missions set inside the mind of modern-day protagonist Desmond Miles.
Desmond slips into a coma inside the Animus and players must overcome this by playing through stages set within his mind. They “take the form of strange platforming missions,” mission design director Falco Poiker told SPOnG “You’ll have to play it to understand, because it’s very hard for me to describe it, but it’s kind of like a Dali-esque first-person platformer.”
He added: “It’s definitely a departure, and very cool I think. You get a lot of information about Desmond and his backstory by completing these. Where he came from, what his life is like… the artwork and surroundings are very surreal and symbolic of his life.”
Poiker likened the stages to hit sci-fi movie Inception. “He’s trapped in his own mind,” he explained. “Our best comparison is Inception – Desmond is in a dreamland, but is able to access Ezio’s memories. Ezio in turn then goes and accesses AltaÃ¯r’s memories.”
Assassin’s Creed Revelations will be in stores from November 15. Ubisoft plans to release another entry in the franchise in 2012.
