The May 2009 issue of Game Informer Magazine revealed a large amount of information concerning the gameplay and story elements of Assassins Creed II.

- Day and Night cycle has been included in this installment (Day, Dawn, Dusk, Night etc)

- Health now longer regerates, players heal themselves or must find doctors in towns

- Horse riding is confirmed to return with new features

- A team of 240 plus people are working on the game

The Game Informer issue also lays out a large amount of information reguarding new characters. The magazine is already being distrbuted throughout the United States.

Sounds like it isn't going to have any modern day parts because of the non-regenerating health. In the last game that just signified de-syncing with the memories. Here it seems its actual health. That or this one will have a "twist." That being the same "twist" from the first game.


I'm not fixing the typo on the topic description just cause.

2nd edit.

Warhammers, Battle Axes and a Mace.

Fucking metal!

I'm very excited for this. I still think the 1st game was great; even though it was repetitive; it's magnificent.

Based on the new features D-O listed; it looks like they fix alot of gripes from the first one and really take the game to the next level. I'm probably going to boot up the first game tonight and collect some more flags; kill some more guards.
