'I will seek Vengeance upon those who betrayed my family. I am Ezio Auditore di Firenze. I am an Assassin...'
The Year of Our Lord 1476—the Renaissance: culture and art flourish alongside the bloodiest corruption and violence. Bitter blood-feuds rage between the warring political families of Italy.
Following the murder of his father and brothers, Ezio Auditore di Firenze is entrusted with an ancient Codex, the key to a conspiracy that goes back to the centuries-old conflict between the shadowy Templar Knights and the elite Order of Assassins.
Ezio must avenge the deaths of his kinsmen and in doing so fulfil [sic] his destiny, and live by the laws of the Assassin's Creed.
Truth is written in blood.
