As Good As New was a virtual representation of one of Ezio Auditore's genetic memories, relived by Desmond Miles in 2012 through the Animus 2.01.


Ezio Auditore woke in a house in Rome, being nursed by a woman.

Ezio recovering in Rome

Ezio awakened in a house with a woman who had tended to his wounds.

  • Margherita: Calmatevi (Calm down). The pain will end soon.
  • Ezio: Where have you brought me?
  • Margherita: Nowhere, Messere (Mister). A man left you here.
  • Ezio: Did he say anything?
  • Margherita: Only this. You are to meet Messer (Mister) Machiavelli in front of the Mausoleo di Augusto. Let me help you get dressed.
  • Ezio: The same man who brought me here gave me these clothes?
  • Margherita: Sì, Messere. (Yes, Mister).

Ezio put on his new Assassin's robes and put on the Hidden Blade that was left for him. He opened the door of the house.

  • Ezio: Ah. Roma.
  • Margherita: Yes, or what is left of it since the Borgia came to power.
  • Ezio: And the Mausoleo?
  • Margherita: Unfortunately, you cannot see it from here.
  • Ezio: How about from the top of that church?
  • Margherita: Yes, but the stairs up are closed.
  • Ezio: That should not be a problem. Vi ringrazio di tutto quello che avete fatto per me, buona donna. Addio. (Thank you very much for everything you have done for me. Farewell, good woman).

Ezio left and headed towards the church.

  • Ezio: I need to find a doctor. My arm! Merda! (Shit!) My back...

Ezio receiving medicine from the doctor

Ezio met with a doctor.

  • Ezio: Salute (Hello). I require medicine.
  • Doctor: Let me look. Someone your age cannot recover from a wound like this with medicine. Here is something to dull the pain; you will heal over time.
  • Ezio: Grazie. (Thank you).
  • Doctor: Four out of five doctors would suggest leeches, but they have not proven effective against such things. However, I can recommend several good colleagues around the city. Do you need anything else?

Feeling better, and now able to climb, run and fight again, Ezio left to climb up the church tower.

  • Ezio: "Someone my age." Imbecille... (Jerk...)

Ezio reached the viewpoint and performed a Leap of Faith into a cartload of hay at the foot of the tower. He overheard a group of Borgia soldiers talking.

  • Borgia Soldier: Word has gone out that a peasant is resisting arrest. We will show him how things operate under the Borgia.
  • Ezio: Machiavelli can wait.

Ezio followed the soldiers through the streets. They led him to the resisting peasant and began attacking him. Ezio killed them all to defend the citizen.


Ezio arrived in Rome, and defended a peasant from abusive Borgia guards.



  • In the memory image, Ezio is wearing the Seusenhofer Armor, which isn't available until the completion of the Exotica shop quest.
