The lights are on
Two new videos show off the awesome new Ottoman hook blade device, and how Ezio can use the new weapon to bring down his foes. Just a few days ago, we had the chance to see the newly extended story trailer for Revelations. Today brings two decidedly more gameplay-oriented videos detailing some of the new options in combat. In particular, the new trailers show off the utility of the new hookblade device when used in combat. The hookblade is a new device given to Ezio upon his visit to Constantinople. It has extensive navigation potential, letting the Assassin zipline between buildings and climb much faster than before. However, as the video shows, the hook blade can be used in deadlier ways as well. One video offers an extended glimpse of Ezio's brutal finishing moves. The second video is a dedicated introduction to the flexible capabilities of the hook blade. Enjoy!

No half-a$$ed sequel here, always new fundamental gameplay elements along with the awesome story.
Wow... the executions look far more brutal this time. There are a few new executions, but most are just re-hashed. The hook blade does look like a very useful and intriguing upgrade.
I'm wondering how this is going to work with dual assassinations - having the hook in one hand, you can't possibly stab someone in the back (or front) of the head right?
