It's amazing what a young Italian nobleman can learn over the course of Assassin's Creed 2's 30-year time frame.

The latest in a series of developer diary videos starring Ubisoft's Patrice and friends looks into progression, one of the most important aspects of AC2. There's a lot more choice is character progression than there was in the first game, allowing you to tailor your Ezio to your liking. And speaking of tailoring, I love the additional armor sets, and I suspect cosplayers will love them too. There's only so much you can do with the all-white cloak ensemble.
