Assassin’s Creed 2: Factions Footage

Have you ever wondered where game characters learn their skills? You haven’t? Oh, well this is embarrassing. Still, you’ll be interested in this. The latest man to front the Assassin’s Creed franchise, as you all know by now, is Ezio; and he can do all manner of things. But  how did he get to be so talented?

In a new video, released by Ubisoft, we get to see the ways in which Ezio will learn to murder and stalk. Assassin’s Creed 2 will contain Factions; Factions that you join in order to be taught specific traits. For example, if Ezio allies himself with the ‘Courtesans’ (prostitutes), they will teach him how to sneak through the towns and villages. Then there are the ‘Mercenaries’, who will teach Ezio the good stuff; fighting and murdering.


There are apparently a few factions within the game and each one will be beneficial to Ezio as he attempts to slaughter lots of Europeans…Oh and do you like Renaissance music? That may seem like a random question but if the answer is no, you may want to carry on watching the video beyond the 2:38 mark. Made me chuckle!
