Let me thank Lise for inspiring this post.
To those who don’t know me well … I’M OBSESSED WITH ASSASSIN’S CREED.
Assassin’s Creed II is a 2009 action-adventure video game developed by Ubisoft Montreal and published by Ubisoft. It is the second major installment in the Assassin’s Creed series, a sequel to 2007’s Assassin’s Creed, and the first chapter in the Ezio trilogy. The game was first released on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in November 2009, and was later made available on Microsoft Windows in March 2010 and OS X in October 2010. Several minor game related features could be redeemed on Uplay and three downloadable expansion packs were released on Xbox Live.
The plot is set in a fictional history setting and follows the centuries-old struggle between the Assassins, who fight for peace with free will, and the Knights Templars, who desire peace through control. The framing story is set in the 21st century and follows Desmond Miles as he relives the genetic memories of his ancestor Ezio Auditore da Firenze. The main narrative takes place at the height of the Renaissance in Italy during the 15th and early 16th century. Players can explore Florence, Venice, Tuscany and Forlì as they guide Ezio on a quest for vengeance against those responsible for betraying his family. The primary focus is to utilize the player’s combat and stealth abilities, as Desmond begins to uncover the mysteries left behind by an ancient race known as the First Civilization in the hope of ending the conflict between the Assassins and Templars.
The reason why I chose this game for this month because I’m almost done with Assassin’s Creed Origins and I’ve been enjoying it too much that I missed the older Assassin’s Creed games and specially Ezio’s Trilogy. Ezio’s story is my all time favorite from Assassin’s Creed games, his personality and how it developed along with the story is very fascinating to me. Compared to other Assassins Creed games, Ezio stands out and I personally think he’s the best assassin from the franchise.
Can we talk about how beautiful Italy is? This game made me very interested in traveling to Italy and I’m pretty sure I already memorized every road and church while playing as Ezio.I’m very excited to replay this game and relive Ezio’s story.
I’ll probably start playing Assassin’s Creed Rogue as well since I never tried it yet. Hope you enjoyed reading this post and have a nice day.
