Assassin's Creed II will be more hardcore than last outing


Jade Raymond has said that Assassin's Creed II will be different from the last outing because our new hero, Ezio is more "badass" than Altair in the assassin department.

Granted, she did not use the word "hardcore", that was our terminology for the title, but we couldn't figure out a shorter way to describe a game hailed as being more vicious and unpredictable than its predecessor.

Kotaku was lucky enough to have a chat with Jade ans watch as she played the game.

Don't be jealous guys, she would have done the same for you had you been there.

One good thing we learned through the piece, was that players will be visiting the present much less often than the first time around. Thank God for small favors.

Get the full thing through the link. It's really sounding quite good.
