First Glimpse of Assassin’s Creed 2

April 10, 2009Written by Draisey

We’ll post this under the Rumor section for now, but we seem to have gotten our first glimpse at the main character for Assassin’s Creed 2. According to Joystiq, this image was unearthed in the official Ubisoft forums before promptly being erased. 


The character render is definitely authentic, as confirmed by the upcoming cover of Game Informer magazine, he seems to have a major design resemblance to Altair from the first installment. Then again, hoodies tend to do that.

The character’s name is supposedly Ezio Auditore de Firenze, a nobleman of Florence in the late 1400s. Ezio is supposedly genetically related to Desmond, and will supposedly have swimming abilities and be given access to DaVinci’s workshop. 

We’ll post up more info as it becomes available.
