After three-plus hours of downloading, converting, and uploading we are thrilled
to bring you the above Assassin’s Creed 2
walkthrough video. It’s from gamescom, but don’t bother screaming “old!” Instead, consider discussing the mechanics shown -- in real-time no less -- from the anticipated sequel.
It opens with protagonist Ezio diving into a haystack and dismissing a guard while half-buried in its yellow glory. The video then shows off a bit of the new “economic system” -- paying mercenaries, buying items, etc., -- then shows off two new weapons, one being a gun.
It also shows a good bit of a “Secret Location” mission. These optional quests were created to reward players with items and test their Assassin’s Creed
mettle with a variety of stealth, acrobatic and puzzle challenges. There’s a chance -- in my mind, at least -- that missions on this scale could break the Assassin’s Creed
monotony. Assassin’s Creed 2
hits the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 on November 17th.
