Assassin's Creed: Revelations is a 2011 action-adventure video game developed by Ubisoft Montreal and published by Ubisoft. It is the fourth major installment in the Assassin's Creed series, a direct sequel to 2010's Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, and the third and final chapter in the 'Ezio trilogy'. The game was released on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on November 15, 2011, and for Microsoft Windows later the same year.

The modern-day storyline picks up with Desmond Miles in a coma state, having been placed in the Animus after falling unconscious. He finds himself in a virtual environment ("Animus Island" or "The Black Room") and is greeted by the digital construct of Clay Kaczmarek, who was previously only known as "Subject 16". Clay tells Desmond that in order to stop the Bleeding Effect destroying his mind, he has to finish synchronizing the rest of Ezio's memories. Ezio's memories in Revelations follow his quest to unlock the library of Masyaf, which was sealed by Altaïr with five Memory Seals that are now in Constantinople.

The Lost Archive DLC for Revelations is a prequel that gives some of Clay's backstory and explains certain events with Lucy Stillman.


With the release of Revelations providing a name and appearance for Subject 16, the ship between him and Desmond increased in activity significantly.

The canon ship Ezio Auditore da Firenze/Sofia Sartor introduced in Revelations enjoyed moderate popularity in fanworks, but the existing Ezio/Leonardo slash ship remained the dominant one involving Ezio. Other ships that began from Revelations include Clay Kaczmarek/Lucy Stillman and Ezio/Yusuf.

At Yaoi Yuri Con 2 in 2012, fans were surveyed for their opinion on the "most shippable" video game, and Assassin's Creed: Revelations got 37% of votes, making it a close second behind Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance, which got 38%.[1]
