Assassin’s Creed II – Developer Diary – Power to the People

Submitted by on Thursday, 13 August 2009No Comment

Assassin's Creed IIThe creators of Assassin’s Creed II have returned to the diary room to discuss the back-story of the stealth-fest and introduce three new factions as part of Ezio’s surrogate family.

Shunned by the very people who once supported and loved him in his old life, Ezio must now rely on the underbelly of Venice and cavort with thieves, courtesans and mercenaries if he is to achieve his ultimate goal and get vengeance.

We also get a look at some of the main characters in the game from the leaders of the above three groups to Ezio’s uncle Mario (unfortunately he doesn’t sport a splendid ‘tache nor seek out captured princesses). We also get to see some concept art for the mercurial Machiavelli, a character who bears an uncanny resemblance to a certain Vulcan in our books.

The diary also discusses the emergence of banking during this period in history and, just like bankers in modern life, Ezio will now be able to steal from everyone in the game.
