Video Feature: Assassin’s Creed: Revelations’ Constantinople vs. Current Day Istanbul

Dan Webb

Recreating the environment is a big part in sandbox games, especially the Assassin’s Creed franchise… a franchise that tries to authentically replicate real-world locations and time periods as accurately as possible.

While we were out checking the latest build of Assassin’s Creed: Revelations recently, we took a tour of Istanbul and caught up with Lead Writer, Darby McDevitt, who took us through the origins, the development and digital recreation of a few of the key areas in Revelations.

Join us as we visit both in-game and real-life locations around the city of Istanbul, with Devitt offering tidbits of information along the way. If you like time-lapse vids, then this is one for you!

Assassin’s Creed: Revelations is scheduled for a 15th November and 18th November release in North America and Europe.

  • pretty interesting! its awesome that they went out of their way to give us a little history lesson :D
  • Looks like this game will be pretty fun. I wanted Ac3 but I now think I'll get it.
  • I always play these games because I like to see the cities, but the stories and game play are so unbelievably boring and redundant. So far the only one that I've enjoyed was AC2, because it was original and fun.
  • I would buy this one, but I left my wallet in el segundo.
  • just 1 of 10+ games i wonna play thats coming out this nov
  • history lessons via games, the revolution is near
  • it was never about the graphics... I JUST WANT TO PLAY THE STORYLINE *DROOLS*
  • november can't come fast enough!!! i must have this game NOW!!!
  • This guy makes a really shit narrator! Interesting video though!
  • can't wait for this game. AC franchise = best ever
  • So take me back to Constantinople No, you can't go back to Constantinople Been a long time gone, Constantinople Why did Constantinople get the works? That's nobody's business but the Turks
  • @15 Lol Im still trying to figure out what that meant.
  • I hate this game. In my opinion its the worst game ever invented. The people who like this game are worthless game-whoring losers. They obviously have no idea what a decent game even is, let alone how an AAA game SHOULD function. Graphics are terrible, game-play is terrible, and everything that has to do with the AC series sucks... Just kidding. I like this game a lot. I'm just trying to see how many people will dislike me without actually reading my whole comment. For those of you who stuck around and actually read my whole comment, give yourself a cookie. I can not wait to buy this game when it comes out. It looks amazing...
  • I'm from Turkey and i living in Istanbul and i can say Istanbul is awesome place for AC!
  • this is AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Cool! looking forward to ACR. Already got AC,AC2,ACB and im buying ACR!!! FOR SURE!!!!
  • very cool video. they should have more like this. in the game menu somewhere would be nice.
  • I love the series, but I wish they didn't fudge the dates on Hagia Sophia. I mean, I get that it's a game, but there's so many interesting facts in history that they didn't need to make stuff up. ^^ I can't wait to get this tomorrow, haha. =P It's a little lame knowing what your Christmas present is, but at the same time I get to be super pumped!
  • #15 needed more love.... My guess is most on this site are too young for that reference. I remember that in the TMBG themed Tiny Toon Adventures episode. Or was it Animaniacs? No, i think TTA. God im old. lol
