Due to the Assassin's being revived, I wonder if Ezio will find a need for an Assassin's Bureau in Rome. Like the old ones with an entrance on the roof. I imagine the interior to be different as it wont just be collecting a feather and going again. Maybe this is where you meet your apprentices, manage their stats and send them on missions from.

There has been mention of hideouts from one of the Devs which you gain after capturing parts of Rome. I think they're uised as save points and places to change gear and the like.

Not entirely sure though, hopefully we'll hear more soon.

ahh ok, so they act like the villa then, and i'm guessing they will be the new villa considering what happens to it.

The same dev also mentioned that you would be securing an 'island' in the middle of the Tiber as your new 'headquarters' so to speak. I think that might be one of the initial missions.

That will be like your new Villa.

This has yet to be solidly confirmed though.

I think the Tiber River base will be the main base/first district we get and it will probably be where we train up our assassin's! It'd be awesome to have those little save points in each district too!

I can't find it in any of the video interviews so it must have been from a magazine or something... I'll keep looking.

This may be the Island in question...

The mafia have safe houses all over today's major cities. I'm sure the assassins can manage to hide their safe houses well enough in a city 500 years ago.

Each of the hideouts will have shops for you to restock and repair so I think you're probably right. Although, I did find the autosave notification annoying when you're trying to make a clean HUD-less video. The annoying wee diamond thing pops up all the time... especially in the Tombs. You also had the 'Checkpoint Reached' aswell... irritating!

I'd quite like to be able to hide all that junk.

july issue of playstaion magazine states "Tiber island , sitting in the middle of its titular river in the heart of the city and serving as Ezio's base of operations".

and the entire city of Roma is able to renovated, so the entire city acts like the renovated part of the villa, but the base of course stores your all newly acquired equipment.

Nice one, I was struggling to find the time to look for it and you saved me the effort http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif

Ironically I have that Magazine sitting right infront of me and didn't even look in it... doh!
