Ubisoft Montreal has just released the first official gameplay footage for their upcoming Action / Adventure Assassin’s Creed II. The sequel to 2007’s Assassin’s Creed will be released for the PC, Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 on November 17th in North America and in 3 days later in Europe.
Set roughly 300 years after the first title in the series, the game takes place during the renaissance period in 15th century Italy. Besides showing off art from that time period, the trailer also shows protagonist Ezio in combat with a large number of guards and other combatants. Utilizing hammers, swords, a spear and the series’ trademark “wrist blades”, the gameplay footage mixes stealthy kills with open combat. The trailer can be found below, although a version with higher resolution can be found here, on the official website.
