Assassins Creed Revelations, in part, takes place in Constantinople 58 years after the city fell to Turkish invaders in 1453. The above trailer for the forthcoming title is narrated by Suleiman the Magnificent, nine years prior to his taking control of the Ottoman Empire. He details the vibrant city that Ubisoft have recreated, showcasing its unique beauty, wealth, and intermingling of cultures.

The Prince also speaks of the city's troubles and sets the scene for Ezio's arrival in the city. Having just conquered Europe's largest and most wealthy city a half century earlier, there is no shortage of conflict for the Ottomans. The a city now inhabited by a diverse population from two continents and a variety of political backgrounds -- including the looming threat of a Byzantine rebellion.

It's an incredibly intriguing setting and I hope that Revelations manages to be at least half as interesting and well executed as that video when it hits shelves next Tuesday.
