A look at Assassin's Creed 2's new lead, Ezio
A nobleman from Florence in 1476, part of Desmond's proud bloodline, he's the new hooded figure whose cause is yet to be revealed. With more moves and weapons at his disposal, he's set to rock the Renaissance in Assassin's Creed 2 (PS3, Xbox 360), his name is Ezio Auditore de Firenze.
For now, all we know about the still enigmatic persona is that he can swim, ride Da Vinci's flying machine, and a few other minor details. Ezio's also gonna be taking on a wider variety of mission types, so you won't get caught up in the redundant jobs that Altair had to pull.
For now, Game Informer's May Issue still holds the most info as far as AC2 is concerned, but at least now we know that Ezio looks kickass and he'll be doing so in more ways than Altair did.
