Assassin’s Creed: Revelations is the final installment in the Ezio trilogy and brings his story to a closure. Ezio’s final adventure sends him on a quest to find the keys to Altair’s secret library. Altair’s story is also given closure through a series of flashbacks in the game.
The game is not very short but it’s shorter than the previous three titles in the franchise. Due to the game not being very long, it wraps up Ezio and Altair’s stories pretty quickly. Although the completion time will differ from player to player as how you choose to approach the game depends on you.
If you want to complete the main story of Assassin’s Creed: Revelations, you’ll require around 12 hours. For completing both the main story and all the side quests you’ll require around 20 hours and a completionist run of the game will take you around 34 hours.
