Ezio has friends in latest Assassin’s Creed II trailer

Who knew Assassin’s Creed’s Ezio was this well socially connected?

In this latest teaser spot, Ubisoft gives us a look at three of the factions you’ll encounter in Assassin’s Creed II, each of which will offer Ezio different services and skills. Mercenaries will teach you how to fight, while the Thieves will teach you how to climb… and also let you hit on them, apparently. The Courtesons, led by Paola and her ample bosom (discretion much?) will teach Ezio how to blend in, walk with the crowds. 

If I get anything from this trailer is that Ubisoft is definitely trying to offer more in terms of gameplay variety and story for Assassin’s Creed II. Of course, if the game just comes down to three types of missions — fighting, climbing, and blending in — we have an issue. 

We’ll know more when Assassin’s Creed II hits shelves on November 17.
