Assassin's Creed: Revelations leaps into 3D

Ubisoft's latest time-hopping action adventure to offer 3D options on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.

Ezio Auditore, Altair, Desmond Miles, and the rest of the Assassin's Creed crew are set to make their 3D debut in Ubisoft's fourth entry in its open-world assassination series. Ubisoft announced today that Assassin's Creed: Revelations will be playable in stereoscopic 3D across all platforms, including the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.

Depth-of-field perception can be useful when dangling from 200 feet off the ground.

On consoles, Revelations will support various modes of 3D display on 3D-capable televisions. It will also be compatible with TriOviz Inficolor, allowing for 3D gaming on traditional 2D HDTVs. Inficolor glasses are available for purchase on the TriOviz Inficolor website, but delivery to the US is currently unavailable. On the PC side, the game will support Nvidia 3D vision.

Assassin's Creed: Revelations is set to hit shelves on November 15 for consoles, and recent confusion regarding the PC version's release has been cleared up with confirmation from Ubisoft of a December 1 date.

Revelations will follow the story of Ezio, who was first introduced in Assassin's Creed II. This time out, Ezio will seek out the haunts of original Assassin's Creed protagonist Altair, visiting such Middle East strongholds as the Ottoman Empire's Constantinople. There, Ezio will once again take up arms against the Templar order.

Cool I guess too bad I don't have a 3D TV. It may be a gimmick but so is HDTV and people went nuts for it. To me is just a further aspect, maybe one day some developer may properly use it. Would love to have one once it drops in price.

Me mad because we get 3D on the 360. That's PS3 boring gimmick job to do.

@Soothsayer42: I couldn't agree more. 3D really has changed gaming for me. Crysis 2 was awesome in 3D. I can't wait for AC and Batman Arkham City, 2 games which have the scaling of buildings in them will be perfect for 3D; acrophobia may well be an issue for some gamers with this addition! @AvatarMan96: Sorry but once you make an opinion public everyone has the right to comment on it and I think you'll find that you are in fact the one ranting here not myself. I have nothing against your comments but I will make a comment on them myself should I feel that it warrants one, that is freedom of speech just as your initial comment was. And please stop with the attitude, it's childish at best.

Let me know when we've hit virtual reality. I'm skipping this 3D nonsense

@Zloth2 i tried 3D once on my Sony VAIO laptop, i played some 3D games and it really hurt my eyes... You should try 3D on PS3+50' 3D LED TV... its the best experience :D

@sayondas4 I don't know about consoles but the 3D effect on PCs is awesome. Things that are miles away look like they really are miles away!

@gotrekfabian If it wasn't a rant, then why the **** did you care if I came to this article? Mind your own business, por favor.

3D makes me reconsider purchasing anything. It's an embarrassing gimmick, for already childlike consumers.

@avatarman96: It was hardly a rant at you was it? And the world has come to nothing more than your nonchalance. I am also allowed to express an opinion even if it is about your opinion aren't I?

Well, it wasn't until this article and the mentioning of the Trioviz glasses that I realized why my red blue glasses didn't work on youtube.

@gotrekfabian No, I don't care. I came to the article because I read just about every news article on this site. So what, I can't express my negative opinions anymore? What has this world come to when I can't say something negative without getting ranted about? Geez!

@avatarman96: why come to the topic if you don't care? Admit it, you do care a little don't you! @maximumbarmage: Well said, those who don't have the 3D capable TV seem to be very dismissive of the technology and yet they all came here to see what it was all about (as mentioned above). 3D isn't the same as it used to be in the 80s and 90s whereby you had to warp the colouration of your experience by having one eye seeing in green and one in red, it is a truly immersive experience as you state. Naysayers need to experience a little more than Avatar 3D in an electronics retailer before insulting those of us who know how good it can be when done properly.

since we, me and my family, have a 3D TV, I think I'll try it out, just to see what it's like. But I doubt I'll be using it that much, since the 3D TV is in the living-room and my TV is in my room. But it would be a shame not to try it, when I have the opportunity ;)

Thanks but no thanks, Ubisoft. It's hard enough for me to use 3D as is due to the fact that I wear glasses. If I have to choose between awesome 3D effects and being able to see what the hell is going on, well, I think the choice is obvious. Besides, it's kind of redundant using the 3D when you can't even see it...

3d is cool but in recent games and movies 3d effect was not at all good....like hp deathly hallows or poc stranger tides....3d effect in these sucked.

@DrKill09 Blu-Ray? Sure, but I'm pretty sure people bought a PlayStation 3 for gaming as well. Barely any games on the PlayStation 3 have a native resolution of 1080p. Most games are upscaled from 720p. They have yet to really make use of 1080p outside of movies or PC games. In a cycle that emerged during the rise of HD, that's bad. When we see support rise faster for 3D than for 1080p, that's downright shameful. Cart before the horse and such.

I'd buy it if it's high-quality 3D. Not the crappy 3D that's in Black Ops

DrKill09

@Icehearted How so? Blu Rays are in 1080p. Quite a few PS3 games are in 1080p. PC games can be played in 1080p. How is 1080p "not justified"?

DrKill09

In 10 years we're gonna look back at this 3d fad and say "What the hell were we thinking?" just like when 3D came back in the early 80's, and early 90's. :roll:

I may actually buy this game now.

@DarthVeng_basic Errr? First you say you 'know' that 3D is worthless then you complain because somebody attacks you for expressing your opinion? Maybe you should try not expressing your opinions as if they are facts? Anyway, I've got 3D. I've been playing with it for over a year now. It's the best thing to happen to gaming since we switched from sprites to polygons, in my educated opinion. Assuming you have a good setup, things that are 10ft away look like they are 10ft away. That's the 3D that a PC (and console?) can dish out. It is NOT the 3D that a movie can dish out in a theater. 3D gaming is a very different situation.

At first I though ACR will be on the 3DS as well when I sw the title.

I hope they do it well. If the quality of the past two Assassin's Games mean anything then the 3D will be rather epic!!!

At least people with a 3D TV can justify their purchase, unlike those of us with 1080p sets. I wonder if anyone will barf when they try a 3D "Leap of Faith".

Unnecessary gimmick,I would say.But good news for those who enjoy it,I guess.I know I dont,a huge waste of money IMO.

More jealousy from those who can't afford 3D I see. I've had a 3D set for a while now and it has undeniably made playing games a far more immersive experience. At least on PS3 anyways. Anybody dismissing the technology entirely offhand has no clue what they are talking about.

3d is not as good as it should be I do not think, I mean I like it in the cinema but in games and on 3dtv it doesn't seem to do much, except add depth.

I totally thought it was going to be for 3DS, but silly me. I mean God forbid third-party support rear it's ugly head in the same sentence as Nintendo. :P

I love how in the video Ezio sings about how he threw Cesare off a wall to kill him. Yeahh.. That guys a totally normal minstrel, right?

Cool and all I guess,. But 3D is still an inconvenience for me. I dont want to wear a second pair of glasses on top of my regular lenses just to play a game.

wow i cannot imagine a game more suitable than this for 3D, hope to see big improvements over the next couple of years in this field should be a great addition to gaming :)

I understand that this isn't groundbreaking news for most but for me this a most welcome feature. I purchased a 50" LG 3d TV about 6 weeks ago and only have a few games which play in 3D, Crysis 2 being the most notable. ACR being in 3D is a most welcome feature for me, I just hope that it has a few features that make the most of such as more glider missions. AC FTW!!

lol So Ubisoft cancels Assassin's Creed for 3ds to release Assassin's Creed on every system besides Nintendo's with the notable feature of 3d...looks like ubisoft can have their cake and eat it too! :P

sweet, i have no problem with 3d options, because they are just options. GT5 on my 46inch sony 3d tv is pretty crazy...
