New Assassin's Creed: Revelations Tease Points To Constantinople

Assassin's Creed: Revelations may well just be sending players to Constantinople if the new teaser on Ubisoft's Spread the Word Facebook page is of any indication.

Having broken the fourth tier of the activity bar, a new image can be seen flickering in the teaser. The massive structure surrounded by four minarets, a distinctive structure of Islamic mosques, is the Hagia Sophia, a giant cathedral located in Constantinople - modern day Istanbul, Turkey.

The cathedral was commissioned by Emperor Justinian I of the Roman Empire and was designed by two Greek scientists, Isidore of Miletus and Anthemius of Tralle. After Constantinople fell to the Ottoman Turks in the 15th century, it was converted into a mosque, with the four minarets added then.

It'll be interesting to see where Revelations will take fans. At the moment, all signs point to both Greece and Turkey. The Phaistos Disc that was teased earlier is an artifact found on the Greek Island of Crete. Earlier teasers showed arabic words as well as the hand of an assassin with hidden blade fully extended.
