New weapons such as the crossbow are very useful in how you can approach stealth kills from a distance. The combat feels more fluid and you can chain attacks together. The new addition I love is the ability to use your sword and hidden gun together to perform some devastating attacks, these can result in quick kills and give you some more space during combat. Aside from the combat/free running, it is your job to free Rome of Borgia control which are part of side missions. Courtesan, thief and assassination missions are examples that add variety to the gameplay if you don't just want to focus on the main campaign. The side missions can result in bonus items so keep an eye out for them. Another useful addition is the ability to ride horses within the districts, this greatly improves your travelling time during missions or just in general. The newest highlight would be the ability to train citizens into assassins, level their skills up as you send them on missions around Europe. Turn them into the ultimate assassin as they can be summoned during missions to give you a great advantage. Virtual training tutorials have also been added to help perfect your skills.
