As part of Xbox's somewhat newly revealed Games with Gold program, Assassin's Creed II is now available to download for free for Xbox Live Gold subscribers through the end of July. Sure, it's a four-year-old game. Yeah, most people are kind of burned out on Assassin's Creed. But hey, there's no harm giving it a download in case you ever feel like visiting your ol' pal Ezio again.
On the off-chance that you haven't played Assassin's Creed II, this is definitely worth having a go at. That's probably not a whole lot of people though, because anyone that wanted to play this already has. For what it's worth, ACII is by far my favorite in the series, and I can't recommend it highly enough.

Disclosure-bot: Just in case the editor neglected to mention it, we have zero control when deals start and end. Deals can sometimes be gone within minutes (please don't shoot the messenger). Trying deal links even hours after this article's time stamp may lead to self-punching, so maybe bookmark our video game deals if you're on the hunt. Also, it goes without saying, but some shopping links do directly support the author. If you've spotted any inaccuracy please let us know asap.
