The Director's Cut Edition
is the Windows release of Assassin's Creed
While the core gameplay remains the same as in the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions, the Director's Cut Edition
features some additions and improvements besides the more detailed graphics (including DirectX 10 support). The most noticeable additions are the four new informant missions which increases the total to nine available missions for each assassination. The four new ones are:
- Roof Chase - once Altaïr has met up with an informant, he sends him to a second one which he needs to reach before the time runs out.
- Kill the Archers - Altaïr needs to take out all the archers on the roofs in a defined zone silently so that the other assassins can move on with their own missions.
- Destroy the Market Stands - as the name suggest, Altaïr needs to destroy a predefined number of market stands but will encounter heavy resistance from the marketeers.
- Escort - a fellow member of the brotherhood has stolen something very valuable and now the guards are chasing him. Altaïr needs to escort him safely out of the city.
Other changes include an improved artificial intelligence and a comfort function which allows Altaïr to port himself directly from the home of the brotherhood (Masyaf) to a city of his choosing provided he already visited it before. In the console releases Altaïr always had to ride through the kingdom to return to a already visited city.
