Secrets are difficult to keep in the gaming sector, and while Assassins Creed 2 is no secret, for the first time, Ubisoft came clean today, officially declaring the title and planning for a holiday-season release.
Assassins Creed 2 will bring Ezio, a new masked marauder to the experience in what Ubisoft is calling a “vast open world environment.”‚ Ezio has been betrayed by his countrymen and sets out to wreak vengeance and havoc on those who wronged him.‚ Set in Renaissance Italy, the new environment will allow for not only stunning visuals, but new gameplay elements, and a variety of missions.
“Our creative team is working hard to top the experience of Assassin’s Creed,” said Patrice Desilets, creative director at Ubisoft. “We’ve made improvements to every aspect of the game. And we’ve plunged ourselves into the stunning history of the Italian Renaissance so that we can offer fans a unique, varied and innovative Assassin’s Creed experience.”
