Assassin's Creed getting a little dose of horror?


As you may have heard Assassin's Creed Revelations is coming out just in time for the holidays on November 15th, 2011.  What you may not have heard is who may be referenced in the game, and let's just say he's somebody we're all probably a little familiar with!  During the course of Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood you hunted for an item which was referred to as the "coins of Vlad".  This may have been a reference of things to come for as you may have read in the title it appears as though Vlad the Impaler will be making a return in Revelations.  The picture below shows some of the items that you will receive should you purchase the Some sharp eyed gamers have noticed in the picture below how Vlad may be referenced in the game.  If you pre-order the Assassin's Creed: Revelations Animus Edition from Gamestop you will receive, among plenty of other goodies, a mission which is described as such; -Explore the prison of legendary Vlad the Impaler, the scourge of Constantinople who inspired the myth of Dracula. Seek out the hanging cell of the infamous leader to retrieve his personal blade, a deadly close quarters dagger capable of dispatching any foe.  Sounds pretty awesome that yet again they are using our favorite inspiration for Dracula to tie into a video game doesn't it?  Go and pre-order yours now to ensure you get a little of that horror flavor in your version of Assassin's Creed: Revelations this November!
I purposefully made this picture gigantic so you could see the little square that mentions the Vlad the Impaler mission.  Below is a picture which shows all the pre-order goodness!

I wondered if the original was worthy...this makes all signs point towards a maybe :)

if you mean the original Assassin's Creed then yes it is amazing. As a longtime fan of the series, I must say the first one is pretty good, the second one is absolutely a must own game, and the third (Assassin's Creed:Brotherhood) I'm currently playing, so I'll let you know later.

This game is going to be amazing... The first three games have been promising, so I definitely recommend them to any gamers out there... Interesting update on Vlad... Hopefully it will happen!

Hubby bought and liked the original A.C., but says he wouldn't buy it again. He's holding back his cash for the next Gears of War.

Yeah Ali, I agree the first one could be a long rental but it is still integral to the rest of the complete story. However, the other 2 are absolute must owns for any gamer who loves great gameplay and an even better story. (By the way all the stuff that sucked in the first one was fixed in the second)
