Oh, the places you’ll go as Ezio!
Assassin’s Creed: Revelations is set to take Ezio to 16th-century Constantinople, which in modern day is knows as Istanbul, Turkey. The following is a list of real-life landmarks found in Istanbul that have been confirmed by Ubisoft to be found in Revelations.
Galata Tower: You may recognize the tower from preview footage and screenshots of the game. The real tower is 219 ft tall and has been standing since 1348 A.D.
Hagia Sophia: Originally built as an Eastern Orthodox Cathedral in 562 A.D., Hagia Sophia was an Imperial Mosque in Ezio’s time.
Topkapi Palace: Today, the palace is a museum, but in the time that Revelations is set, it was, of course, a palace. It even included a Harem shown in the video linked below.
Basilica Cisterns: The Cisterns may or may not make an appearance in Revelations. How they would be included may be interesting, as they would give Ezio nearly nowhere to climb, as they are underground chambers located beneath the city.
