Ezio Auditore da Firenze
. I simply love saying that name and he's back in Assassin's Creed Brotherhood. The game picks up from the ending of AC 2 and is a pretty impressive sequel with quite a few additions in game play. So today's post is the top 5 cool things you can do in AC brotherhood. Hope you will enjoy it as much as I enjoyed writing it.


The virtual training program is a new addition to the Animus 2.0 in Assassins Creed Brotherhood. It’s like a challenge series with several missions not directly related to the main story but meant for taking a break and improving the player’s skills in combat and free-run.

It’s also a nice platform for creating personal records in combat events and comparing them with your friends. The score is calculated by multiplying number of guards killed with your highest kill streak; so players get extra points for having large kill streaks which is rather a difficult skill to acquire but is very useful in the story mode.
Although it’s a nice addition to the game, you’ll get bored of it after some time; so the Virtual Training only gets at No.5 in our list.


For the first time in Assassins Creed, Ezio is able to use horses inside a city. Players can also renovate the stables at Rome and will be able to whistle for horses to come to them, which is a big relief for exploring the very BIG city of Rome

Well that’s not all; you can now assassinate mounted guards from your horse, which is pretty awesome to watch. Ezio will time his jump from his horse to the guard’s horse and after killing the guy with his favourite assassination blade will continue to ride on the guard’s horse.
Unlike the other games in the AC series, while on horseback, Ezio is able to use most of his weapons, both long and short-ranged; however this excludes any heavy or two-handed weapon.


How many times have you cursed yourself for falling down from rooftops and losing your life in AC? Well I don’t know about you guys but I definitely have cursed myself many many times. Well the solution is finally here in AC brotherhood. Parachutes from Da Vinci(who else?).

Aside from using it to slow down his fall, Ezio can use the parachute to manoeuvre through the air. While using the parachute, he may release it at any time to drop down, and either land or perform an air assassination. You will be able to get a hold of it once you finished all Leonardo Da Vinci missions and will be available for purchase at any tailor shops. This time also Ubisoft have used original Da Vinci drawings to design the parachutes like they have done with the flying machine and his war machine.


This post wouldn’t be complete if I didn’t mention about the multiplayer mode in AC brotherhood. It’s the real reason behind Ubisoft inserting a game between AC 2 & AC 3 and they have done it pretty impressively. They have successfully translated the running, jumping and stealth-kill game play of the single-player game into a functional multiplayer experience.

The multiplayer game design needs a bit of explanation. You play as an assassin dressed up in one of six different outfits -- there's noble attire, for instance, or clothing suited to a merchant or a priest -- and you're placed in a city populated with similarly attired characters, you goal is to identify and kill all your opponents. If any of your opponents realises that you are sneaking up from behind, they’ll run like hell and you have to chase and finish them. If your opponent manages to outrun you and escape you’ll have to start all over again.


Well it’s time for Ezio to lean back and take a break. Now he has got assassin recruits to do all his dirty works. Yep that’s right! Now you don’t have to run away from fights if you are low on health, just call the recruits and they’ll finish the job for you. This is the most awesome feature of AC brotherhood and deserves to be the number one in our list.These recruits are normal citizens saved by Ezio Auditore from the rough streets of Rome, during the war against the Templars. They subsequently devoted themselves to learning the ways of the Assassin Guild, motivated by their drive for revenge against the Borgia for corrupting their beautiful city.

These recruits can be sent to contract mission to Europe and Asia to improve their skills and ranks. While not on contracts they will help Ezio in fights and can be used to call an arrow strike in which case they’ll fire arrows and kill ALL enemies near Ezio. Pretty cool stuff, right?
