Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood Features
Ezio Auditore da Firenze, born in 1459, was an influential member of Assassin’s Order. He is a descendant to Altair Ibn La`Ahd and ancestor to Desmond Miles and Subject 16. After the murder of Ezio’s two brothers and father, he took refuge in town of Monteriggioni at the Auditore Family Villa, and yet was unaware of Assassin Heritage.
Niccolò di Bernardo dei Machiavelli (3 May 1469 – 21 June 1527) was an Italian diplomat, political philosopher, musician, and playwriter, but foremost he was a civil servant of the Florentine Republic. Niccolo was a secret member of Assassins Order.
Mario Auditore (1434 – 1499) was the older brother of Giovanni Auditore and the uncle of Ezio. Like his brother he was an Assassin but he preferred combat style instead of stealth. Ezio received training from his uncle and after that both worked as allies.
Rodrigo Borgia (1 January 1431 – 18 August 1503), was the leader of the Knights Templar during the Renaissance in Italy and was elected as Pope in 1492 to 1503 as Alexander VI. His enemies called him “The Spaniard” (due to his Spanish origins) while his Templar followers called him “Maestro” (“Master” in Italian and Spanish). He is the main enemy in Assassin’s Creed II.
Cesare Borgia (13 September 1475 – 12 March 1507) was the son of Rodrigo Borgia and the arch-enemy of Master Assassin Ezio Auditore. Like his father he was a Templar and soon became commander of Papal Army and then a leader in Templar Order.
Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci (April 15, 1452 – May 2, 1519) was an Italian polymath: painter, sculptor, architect, musician, scientist, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, geologist, botanist, writer and best friend in the Italian Renaissance.
He was a friend of Ezio in Assassin’s Creed II, his main role was to decipher the codex pages, which were actually design sketches of Ezio’s Hidden Blade. He also designed that Flying Machine that Ezio uses when he assassinates Carlo Grimaldi.
Caterina Sforza (1463 – 28 May 1509) was the Countess of Forlì and Imola and the daughter of Galeazzo Maria Sforza.

One of the Mode was announced in July named “Wanted” in which 6 to 8 players are dropped in a map, and each player is assigned a target (some other player), now the player has to make his way to assassinate its target without losing his cover or he will be killed by his Predator.
Another mode called “Hunter Mode” makes one player an Assassin and others as Guards. Assassin is given a choice of choosing a class, no information has been released on classes. Assassin is assigned a target which flashes on his maps along with other Guards too. Now the Assassin has to make his way to his target and avoiding contact from the guards.
Physics and Effects
After some criticism from PC gamers about the Ragdoll falls in Assassins creed II, such as Borgia Messengers are likely to fall unrealistically. Ubisoft improved their graphics as well as physics including Ragdoll using the new edited “Havok” engine.
