Pull on your armour and grab your mace because Assassin's Creed is back in an epic tale of vengeance, family-ties and conspiracy.
Set in the beautiful yet brutal backdrop of Renaissance Italy, you'll play as Ezio, a young Italian noble, who takes the dubious career path of Assassin after his family is betrayed. A free spirit and a bit of a lady's man, he befriends Leonardo da Vinci while taking on some real nasties.
Through Ezio, you'll hone your skills as a master assassin - as one does - but you'll have to stay alert because new experiences and surprises will be coming your way.
A great bonus is the total freedom you'll have to explore some of the most beautiful cities on earth. Granted, you'll probably be doing this parcours, by swimming or by hitching a lift on one of da Vinci's inventions while chasing opponents, but who said historical sight-seeing was easy?
The combat has been totally overhauled, so there are loads of different weapons and a new health system. Mission variety has been massively improved too, with more freeform and random events, while the graphics detail will make your jaw drop.
Don't forget to watch your back.
Suitable for players aged 15 years and over.
