nobody knows... but Florence and Venice are in the game, Siena it's a maybe...

or maybe... just maybe, there are more than 3 cities in the game this time

I Hope so. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I would hope that's the case but its doesn't seem likely because of how much larger they already made the cities and how much more work was put into the kingdom.

08-16-2009, 04:59 PM
yeah, maybe we only got 2 cities and a greater kingdom http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

One of the interview videos with Patrice mentioned 5 cities.

08-16-2009, 10:46 PM
obliviondoll, are you sure he didn't say 5 districts, not 5 cities?

08-16-2009, 10:53 PM
No it was 5 cities, i saw the same interview.

08-16-2009, 10:55 PM
Does that include the small town in the countryside that he mentioned?

08-16-2009, 11:33 PM
I suppose we'll be moving among the cities on horseback?

08-16-2009, 11:41 PM
I think we will see lots of towns where they'll be missions

I think I saw that courtyard in Siena in a screenshot of ACII, the one where Ezio is slashing the three (or more) guards with a halberd. Could've been a different screenshot, but it definately looks familiar.

I think you refer to the San Marco basilica... it's in Venice, an aready confirm city...
that basilica appears at the end of the E3 trailer as well... look like it's going to be an important place in the game

Found this on wikipedia

Northern Italy and upper Central Italy were divided into a number of warring city-states, the most powerful being Milan, Florence, Pisa, Siena, Genoa, Ferrara, Mantua,Verona and Venice. High Medieval Northern Italy was further divided by the long running battle for supremacy between the forces of the Papacy and of the Holy Roman Empire: each city aligned itself with one faction or the other, yet was divided internally between the two warring parties, Guelfs and Ghibellines. Warfare between the states was common, invasion from outside Italy confined to intermittent sorties of Holy Roman Emperors. Renaissance politics developed from this background. Since the thirteenth century, as armies became primarily composed of mercenaries, prosperous city-states could field considerable forces, despite their low populations. In the course of the fifteenth century, the most powerful city-states annexed their smaller neighbors. Florence took Pisa in 1406, Venice captured Padua and Verona, while the Duchy of Milan annexed a number of nearby areas including Pavia and Parma.

No, it was 5 districts in one city. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/winky.gif

5 cities, 5 districts in each, plus a new "kingdom" called the countryside i think.

cities are florence, venice, rome, naples, and tuscany, which isnt really a city. i suspect pisa is a district of tuscany, and will show the famous leaning tower, but it wasnt leaning as much at the time.

Maybe Milan instead of Naples

From what i have heard, it is not like AC1 in that there is an urban area (cities) and countryside (kingdom). Now it is more flowing in that the cities (Venice, Florence, maybe Rome + maybe Bologne) just kind of "fade out" to countryside. But within the countryside there are also small towns that you can visit/do missions in.

Does that mean there won't be the massive walls completely surrounding the cities?

They mentioned in one interview that Venice has 5 districts similarly sized to the ones in AC1. They ALSO mention that there are 5 cities in a different video. And that the countryside is going to work a lot different to how the Kingdom does in AC1.

Venice, Florence, San Gimgnano and Rome are confirmed, and there are screenshots of them all

11-08-2009, 10:56 AM
