Assassins Creed 2 release date is November 17, 2009. Assassins Creed 1 sold over 8 million units worldwide
Assassin’s Creed 2 was shown off at E3 2009 during both Sony’s E3 Press Conference as well as at Ubisoft’s E3 Press Conference. The game will be released on November 17th, 2009 for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.
Although the trailer gives players a good look at the game, it is the gameplay demo that Sony showed off that really whet fans appetites.
But before that, they dropped a bomb regarding the original Assassin’s Creed 1, announcing that that game has sold an astounding 8 million copies! Becoming one of the highest selling new IP’s of all time. Very nice!
The Assassin’s Creed 2 demo starts off in the city square with fireworks going off in the background and series protagonist Desmond stalking through the streets as another one of his ancient ancestors, just like in the first game.
However in Assassin’s Creed 2 you do not start out as an Assassin, but rather as a nobelman who is on a quest for vengeance. As Ezio, players will learn a number of even more deadlier attacks than Altier learned in the first Assassin’s Creed and they get even more lethal as players progress through the story.
Leonardo Da Vinci also plays a big part in the game as a personal friend of Ezio’s. And he will outfit Ezio with a number of his inventions and gadgets throughout the game, including his famous flying machine that allows Ezio to sour through the city skies! Or glide rather.
You can see the flying machine in action in this video of the Assassin’s Creed 2 E3 2009 Sony Press Conference demo.
Here is the official E3 2009 trailer for Assassin’s Creed 2.
