View Full Version : Altair in Constantinople?

Ive seen a video on YouTube displaying Ezio and Altair running in parallel with what appeared to be the Hagia Sophia in the background. If it is in fact the Hagia Sophia, it bothers me that Ottoman minarets could be seen on Altair's side of the picture. I'm sure the assassins creed team at Ubisoft are aware that Constantinople was not Ottoman during Altair's time, shouldn't there be a cross on top of the Hagia Sophia?

There are two time periods in revelations in which Constantinople was moderately different.

if Altair does end up visiting Constantinople, to what extent will they remodel the city? Will the entire city be completely remodeled to give it a medieval eastern Roman look (as would be accurate. Will there be two Constantinoples; an Ottoman one corresponding to Ezio's time and an Eastern Roman one corresponding to Altair's time? or will Altair explore only limited parts of Byzantine Constantinople? I suspect the latter if at all.

Any input or info on this? thanks

It could just be an Alta´r skin? or made just for the trailer? Lots of possibilities...I don't think he went to Constantinople.

Well according to the secret crusade the only thing Altair failed to do in his lifetime was to bring the assassin order to Constantinople. It doesn't really say whether he went and tried or if it's because he just never made it there. I think he will go there briefly at some point in Revelations. Why show him there in the trailer if he's not going to be there and we also know he didn't spend his entire life in Masyaf.

Altair will go to Constantinople in 1204 to establish a guild there, but the fourth crusade was creating chaos within the city, so there was rioting, thus causing Altair to leave abruptly through the Sewers of Constantinople..

belisaruis is correct the minarets where added by the ottomans after they had conquered the city.

Its most likely a Skin as you can see Altair`s ten fingers intact.

It's not a skin. At that shot you are seeing his right hand which has all its fingers. Another shot shows him missing the finger on his left hand.

Edit: Actually it does look like they are all there but it's hard to tell. There is another shot though that shows the finger missing but it's not in constantinople.

All of the Shots with him and Ezio in Parallel have all of his fingers, the shots in Masyaf have the real Altair with 9 fingers.
