I hope that's not old news, anyway check out this article on IGN:

http://uk.xbox360.ign.com/articles/106/1067875p1.html

Sure i'll get it but i was hoping for an all-new setting. I hope it's something like AC2 Bloodlines lol

So what do you think O.o?

He's going to strike the Templars head on? Didn't he already blow that opportunity by letting Borgia live?

I still want to learn about how their multiplayer system would work in contrast to mine. Lets see if I can't beat out the Ubi devs Cool

In the book, Ezio walks out of the vault to find that Borgia had poisoned himself. He wouldn't die right away, but he was basically written off at this point. I think it was already clear from the fact that Borgia's entire goal was to open the vault and he failed anyway. He wasn't really a threat anymore.

However, the Templars as a group were still very much a threat (and still are right up until modern day). Plenty of reason for Ezio and the other Assassin's to have reason to attack them.

I know this is kinda off-topic, but is that where the book ends?

Back on-topic, as long as this new AC has a long single player, then I'll be happy to assassinate people in Rome.

For special occasions...

@FLAE
Seriously, you didn't know about the book? It's been mentioned in several different threads on this very site. Laughing out loud

It's basically just the events of Ezio's life that we see in AC2, with the occasional segment fleshed out a bit. It's written in a way where you can tell that the author is trying to be wordy or even poetic, but the styles he chooses are cheesy and cliché more often than not. It gets a little annoying sometimes when you wish he'd just get to the damn point already.

Reading the book was most beneficial before the two DLC packs came out, because the book covered those events. Now that they're out, the book adds very little that wasn't in the game. Just small events, like the fact that Ezio stole the bodies of his father and brothers to bury them. Stuff like that.

The book comes out in North America later this month (I believe). But it's been available in the UK since December. It was cheap, so I imported it.

A few things to add regarding the book:

  • It's called "Assassin's Creed: Renaissance"
  • The North American release date is February 23.
  • You can pre-order on Amazon for $9.99.
  • There's plenty of kissing and flirting between Ezio and Rosa, supporting the theory that she is "the ancestor".

You won't even feel the blade.
