Patrice Desilets, creative director at Ubisoft, says their creative team is working hard to top the experience of the original game, “We’ve made improvements to every aspect of the game. We’ve plunged ourselves into the stunning history of the Italian Renaissance so that we can offer fans a unique, varied and innovative Assassin’s Creed experience.”

The release also mentions that the missions will have more variety, there’ll be more weapons to use, and Ezio, the betrayed noble that has taken the place of Altair as the playable character. in other words, nothing we didn’t already know. But there was a bigger version of Ezio’s fancy outfit included.
