As in its prequels, Assassin's Creed Brotherhood tasks you with synchronizing the memories of assassin Desmond Miles with those of his medieval ancestors. Once again Desmond's mind corresponds with Ezio Auditore Da Firenze - but this time, Ezio is not alone.
You must restore Rome and relieve its residents of the oppression they face by eliminating the tyrannical Borgia family, ending their rule over the city. Guards roam the streets and defend their towers, armed with deadly weapons and shelled in solid armour.
As a Master Assassin, you must summon other assassins and train them to form a lethal Brotherhood and overthrow the notorious Borgias and their savage minions. Recruit, tutor and assign missions to your fellow assassins and call upon them to fight with you in larger battles with the enemy.
Ezio is still equipped with his cunning Eagle vision, enabling him to see loot, weapons and secret passageways to other areas of the city. It's also a good way to check out any enemies that lurk nearby, constantly on the hunt for deadly assassins.
Defeat the Borgias to strengthen your Brotherhood, and simultaneously help Rome break free from the grip of tyranny. Money will renew shops and businesses to increase the city's income, and can be acquired by robbing civilians or looting the bodies of fallen rivals. Looting is also a great way to earn new weapons, armour and medicine, along with items that can be sold back to renewed businesses for hard cash.
