When you get glimpses of the actual trailer between the constant darkness of black screens, you’ll notice that what is shown looks a lot like the first Assassin’s Creed game. Assassin’s Creed: Bloodlines is an extension of Altair’s story where he continues his crusade against the remaining Templars. In an interesting twist, a dead man narrates the trailer ordering his followers to catch his killer, Altair, and avenge his murder. How a dead man is speaking we have no idea, we’ve let bigger plot hole skate by, so why not this one too.
Unfortunately the trailer doesn’t reveal how the gameplay holds up against the first Assassin’s Creed game. However the footage appears to be rendered in the PSP engine and looks pretty damn good from our limited perspective. What we’re seeing looks promising and hopefully will be a nice transition game from Assassin’s Creed to Assassin’s Creed II. The again if sneaking around as Altair has taught us anything, it’s that looks can be deceiving.
