Assassin’s Creed Revelations gets a dose of tower defense [Video]

Taking down Borgia towers in Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood was an interesting distraction, but what Ubisoft is introducing in Assassin’s Creed: Revelations sounds even more interesting.

“Den Defense” is, as you may have picked up by the name, more or less like tower defense. Ezio is tasked with helping the Ottoman assassins out in defending their dens, and to do so he’s going to need up to set up defenses. You’ll line the rooftops with assassins, set up barricades and even pitch in yourself by putting a bullet or two in approaching Templar.

Also like tower defense games, the Templar will rush the den in waves, and with each wave the difficulty progressively rises. It’s an interesting new addition to the Assassin’s Creed franchise, and, based on the video, looks like it could be a lot of fun. If nothing else, it’ll be a welcome change of pace.
