A lot of fans have had doubts about whether Ezio will be as athletic as in Brotherhood or AC2, since this time around, he’s 50 years old. Ubisoft says the story of Revelations is all abut him getting ‘older and wiser’ and how that affects gameplay aspects like Eagle Vision.
“Well, in terms of narrative, the character is in a very different place in his life – it’s more of a personal journey,” said creative director, Alexandre Amancio in an interview with The Guardian.
“For the first time he’s motivated by a desire to clarify everything he’s been doing. He’s asking, ‘why am I endangering my life for this order when I have so little information about it?’ His attitude has changed, age has toughened him.
“And also, the hook blade is an important introduction: he’s getting old, physically, but we didn’t want to slow him down, so we needed a way to help his acrobatics.
“His eagle sense skill is also about him becoming wiser – if you get on a rooftop, you can see the faint trail of an enemy moving into a crowd; then you can pick that up, analyse the crowd and find the bad guy. It’s all about him getting older and wiser. ”
