Assassin’s Creed 2 will be more unpredictable and varied

Wednesday, 10th June 2009 19:59 GMT By Stephany Nunneley


Ubisoft’s Sebastien Puel has promised that Assassin’s Creed 2 will have more variety and less predictability than the first iteration.

“We are now telling a story in a way that is intended to be very unpredictable,” Puel told Now Gamer. “There are no more ‘x assassinations’ to perform but a story that develops through a great amount of mission givers.

“Some will give you an assassination mission, others an intimidation or information-gathering mission. There is no limit now to the types of challenges we can give to players. We are very careful to create a lot of variation in the types of gameplay and pace we are proposing.

“The combat system is based on the first game, but with much more possibilities and strategy behind every encounter. Players won’t be able to simply button mash, killing guard after guard. There will be more thinking involved due to the new different guard archetypes and weapons; you will have to strategically plan your every move.”

    Sounds like another counter after counter snoozefest, except there’ll be different counters this time.

    Hum, atleast he says there’ll be “more possibilities and strategy”, hope thats actually true because it looked like ‘same-old’ in the E3 demo.

    Well, I like the combat system. Nothing wrong with it. Everytime I entered the Counter cinematic I was like ‘YEAH BITCH!’

    What the fuck? Assassins Creed 2? That was surprised me, I would never have bet on that game appearing. It was completely unpredictable.

    not that the combat system from the first game was too bad, actually, i think it was ok, i enjoyed it, but so far they haven’t showed any combat geki, not at e3, not in any other place, so how do u know that the combat system looks “same-old”?
