The lights are on
Story will play a much more important part in the multiplayer game of Revelations than it did in the previous installment. Some character skins in multiplayer will unlock by playing through the single-player game. Similarly, some of the multiplayer characters may play an important part in the single-player game. Ubisoft told us about four of the main multiplayer characters we’ll see in the new game. The VanguardThe Vanguard is a Cossack from Odessa. She joined the military to help hold the Ottoman Empire off from her homeland. Eventually, the Templars recruited her with promises of money and power. After years as a scout and spy, she is striking more directly at the center of the Ottoman empire.
This intriguing character is the estranged cousin of the first Sultan of the Sennar Sultanate. He was driven from his home in 1505 by his own family, and ended up in Alexandria, where he began to encounter the Templar philosophy. He now calls himself the Guardian of Truth, as he aims to enact the Templar mantra of peace through order and stability.The BombardierThe Bombardier is part of the Ottoman artillery corps, but that isn’t where his true loyalties lie. He is actually a member of the Quizilbash, a group of anti-Ottoman rebels. The Bombardier thinks that working for the military is beneath him – a weakness exploited by the Templars, who use him to get weapons and information in exchange for wealth and access to powerful men. The SentinelThe Sentinel’s similarity to the garb of an Assassin isn’t coincidental. He was once part of the Assassin order. Born a Wallachian noble, he joined up with the Assassins as a teenager. He stayed with them until the Assassins established a truce with the Ottomans. Enraged, the Sentinel betrayed and left the order to join the Templars. The Ottomans had invaded and conquered his lands – a sin the Sentinel could not forgive. He now uses his insider knowledge of the Assassins to bring down both his former compatriots and their Ottoman allies.

Yusuf sounds like a good addition, with what sparse info is given.
So with new additions, the original personas will still be in. I like that a lot lol
I like that there is another master assassin from another place who has something to teach Ezio too. Yusuf will be one of my many favorites I hope.
Freshness to my memory this is cool.
