In the critically acclaimed Assassin’s Creed II, players can visit Renaissance-era Italy to play as Ezio, an assassin carrying on the deadly lineage of his forebears. Players will embark upon an epic tale of power and corruption as they hone their assassin’s craft, wielding weapons and instruments designed by the legendary Leonardo Da Vinci himself in this gripping chapter of Assassin’s Creed.

Although Assassin’s Creed 2 is more than 10 years old at this point, it remains one of the best games in the franchise. It is is an epic story of family, vengeance and conspiracy set in the pristine, yet brutal, backdrop of a Renaissance Italy.
