Assassin's Creed 2 Confirmed for PS3, Available by March 2010
Ubisoft's third quarter [Register or Login to view links] has finally officially confirmed that the sequel to 2007's best selling assassinate-em-up, Assassin's Creed, will be available for Sony's PS3 console before the end of March 2010.
To quote: While technically impressive, Assassin's Creed was a bit lacking in the gameplay department, we felt. A great proof-of-concept, but without enough fresh content to keep from getting stale after a while. Something we're hoping to see improved in the sequel.
The report also mentions that there will be seven franchise titles being released during the fiscal year starting this April, including Splinter Cell Conviction (which we can assume is still 360 exclusive), Ghost Recon and, as we've already mentioned, Assassin's Creed 2.
There will also be three new IPs, including I Am Alive. No other games in these categories were mentioned, so no doubt Ubisoft has a few more surprises up its sleeve.
Cool, its about time they make a new one. Hopefully though this time they will find a way to shake things up a bit. Also, not sure if the last one got it, but this game could really use trophy support. The only thing I really didn't like about the first game was the fighting system, which made the game way to easy.
As soon as you learned to counter, u could literally pick a fight with an entire city, use your hidden blade, and insta-kill counter anyone. That jut made the game so easy, it wasn't even funny anymore. I think they should do something like the fighting system from Prince of Persia: Warrior Within. I believe it would work well. Anyways, ill get it, I just hope they fix those things.
PS. can anyone make a post about if they added trophy support.
