Assassin's Creed was one of 2007's most appealing titles, as it brought forth an extremely interesting premise: you were an ancient assassin during the peak of the Crusades in the 1100s. But even though it was extremely innovative and offered an adventure much longer than average games, you didn't have a lot of varied things to do in order to pass the time.
Now, as Assassin's Creed 2
is gearing up for its release this November for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC, its developer and publisher, Ubisoft, reveals a few interesting things about it. In a recent attempt to settle the concerns of fans about its length, the company stated that it would be longer than the first, as the core experience would require much more than 20 hours.
“We have greatly increased the scope of the game since the first installment of Assassin’s Creed, so just completing the core of the game will be longer than the 20 hours it took in the first game,” the company stated. “Moreover, we have developed several different optional gameplay that will add a lot of depth to the whole experience and will also extend your gameplay time in a very significant and meaningful way. As for the exact number of hours it will require it’s still too early to say!”
With promises that it will have a much more varied gameplay
, complete with the possibility for the main character, Ezio, to swim and take out his enemies in a lot of different ways, Assassin's Creed 2 will certainly give players a very interesting experience.
Don't forget that, besides the normal missions, it would seem that a few mini-games and collection events will also be featured, meaning that if they want to uncover interesting new objects, players will have to do a lot of exploring through Italy during its Renaissance period.
