You play Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad in 12th and 13th century Masyaf, and Ezio Auditore da Firenze in 16th century Constantinople. The game mainly follows Ezio's journey to unlock the secret of Altaïr's vault in Masyaf. It creates an open world Constantinople, Rhodes, Masyaf and Cappadocia. Constantinople is the largest and split in the four districts Constantine, Bayezid, Imperial, and Galata.
Like other games in the series gameplay focuses on a stealth, exploration and combat. You can hide from enemies not only in grass and bushes, but can pull down their hood and slip into crowds to use them as cover. The main protagonist, Ezio, can use the hook-blade to access zip-lines across the environments. The hook-blade is one of the new features introduced in Revelations. You can also use different bombs for tactical advantages.
Expanded in this game is the task of seizing districts of the city from the Templars. Like in Brotherhood, the Templars will send reinforcements to recapture districts, which Ezio must defend in a tactical "tower defence" sub-game.
Rated for younger players in Australia.

The settings allow to turn off blood but that option is for gameplay only meaning the cutscenes will show blood. There is no manual save option just checkpoints that trigger an autosave. There are settings to adjust 3D Strength and Stereoscopy options (Off, Inficolor, Side by Side, and Top Bottom).
When in combat only the enemy you are focused on will be highlighted and glowing. Other enemies will have a small health bar that flashes when that enemy is going to attack. Enemies not in combat will have an icon indicating if they see you.
Objects that can be interacted with will be highlighted. Similarly, the path for some missions will have distinct indicators of where to go in the game world and on the minimap. There is no distinct indicator of what world elements can be traversed while free running.
