Assassin’s Creed II video: mercenaries, thieves and prostitutes, oh my!

This second developer diary for Assassin’s Creed II features all the extra features that Ubisoft Montreal has incorporated into the sequel to avoid the repetitive gameplay of the first Assassin’s Creed. Highlights include an in-game economic system that’s not only central to establishing the time period in which the game takes place but also plays a significant role in how Ezio progresses throughout the campaign. Ezio will also be befriending a motley crew of mercenaries, thieves and prostitutes who’ll be helping Ezio along in his quest for vengeance when the game comes out in November. Just don’t tell Australia about those prostitutes.
