What is a specialization?

Im confused what exactly is a specialization??? and does it give you an extra armor set??

It’s an option to level through an additional 10 ranks, attaining certain armor, emblems, and an armor mod along the way.

So basically once I get to level 50 I have an option to go an extra 10 levels?

From a selection of specializations, yes. There are 8 specializations in total and you can complete them all if you wish.

No, 1 specialization = 10 ranks
so your max rank 130.

specializations are armour mods you can use and develop according to your play style,
e.g. if you like to assassinate, wetwork specialization makes your assassinations fast and your footsteps quieter. each specialization also unlocks its own armour set.
