Cast you minds back to the beginning of June at E3 and remember all the Assassin’s Creed 2 goodness that Sony revealed during their presentation. The good news, well for PlayStation owners at least keeps on coming as Ubisoft producer Frederic Lefrancois spills the beans on new features of both Assassin’s 2 and the forthcoming PSP title Assassin’s Creed: Bloodlines and importantly how they work together.
Assassin’s Creed: Bloodlines for the PSP follows directly after the events of the PS3 & 360 original, and exclusively explains the link between the original and AC2, if you want to understand Ezio’s background and where the Codex comes from you’re going to need to be getting the portable version. Bloodlines features the familiar assassinations with preliminary mission style gameplay, with the good news for PSP owners being that the title will feature eight new mission types.
The Sony love keeps on coming as Frederic goes on to talk about connectivity between the PSP and the PS3 version of AC2, “As players unlock health and Hidden blade upgrades in Assassin’s Creed 2 PS3, the same upgrades will be unlocked in Assassin’s Creed: Bloodlines (PSP). It also works the other way round: on the PS3 you will be able to access any Templar Coins and special weapons you’ve collected on the PSP.”
Whilst we look forward to this new found connectivity, you can check out all the Assassin’s Creed: Bloodlines gorgeousness in the trailer below.
