Assassin's Creed 2: Ezio makes friends

Assassin's Creed 2: Ezio makes friends

The creators of Assassin's Creed 2 said it before. By performing certain missions of the game, Ezio will be able to get the support of armed factions ready to help him at any time. Here's the proof by image, even if it's not the first time we see Ezio's friends lending him a hand. Thank's to MitchBuchannon from the forum for his sharp eye.

YES!!! finally some green :D nice to see some colors again. Impressive looking game, they just need to convince me with the mission structure... All we hear is we changed it completely, we did that blah blah but that E3 demo showed the same old gameplay.

It looks better than ever allthough the platforming levels are a bit too obvious :D
In any case is a Day1 purchase for me.

Love the colors. Actually I'm glad that the dark days of the Unreal3-brown and gray are behind us. Colors for the win this year and next year!!

I found the original game pretty bright and colourful. Very fitting for what you'd encounter in that region. Same for this though.

I'm loving this. The greenery adds some 'flavor' if you will.

not just more colours but combined with the lighting they look natural too(photoreally), i'm a bit suspicious when PR release just one shot, they've obviously cherry picked this and i will be surprised if they haven't touched it up a bit; or a lot.
its impressive but only an idiot would be sold on a game from one screen(bull?)shot alone, did they ever release that directfeed from the sony con at e3?

Yes, I agree. What I meant was the trend of brown and grey in games in general. But what is comming later this year and next year is colorful to say the least (AC2, Uncharted 2, Forza3, Crysis 2, L4D2, COD6, Batman AA, Ghostbusters, and so on...). I don't think I have seen 1 game at E3 that is still going for the brown-grey art style.

Yeah but it also didn't show any mission structure... At all... So I don't see how that matters lol.

Ugh though, I see all the guards are still just as ninja as you? That is probably the second biggest flaw of the first game. They need SPECIAL units that can go after you when you're being a ninja. You don't feel special when all the effing guards are just as good at everything as you are. Not saying they shouldn't be able to do anything, just not jump around from one tiny pole to another and stuff. Takes away from you feeling supirior.

So here's what has me confused, are they taking away the ability to scale the entire city? Is that what they mean with the open world thing?

People don't get that some places actually look like that. Like, FarCry 2 with its redish brown hues. That's what the savanah looks like people... Where there was color in AC, it was very much there. Like, if you look at the modern area, it had color. Not a lot, but again, that was because everything was metalic.

And continues to look amazing,some green don't hurt I agree but I it wasn't a problem with me if it didn't have it.

And cool with those friends helping him that will give this game a lot of variety unless you go in a rampage killing even friends XD

I'm glad to hear that they've completed scrapped the mission structure. We all knew deep down that the graphics would be awesome; it's just the gameplay which has me concerned.

I hope they deliver.

Those colours, I love it. I love Italy and this should be great. IF, and only IF, they alter some things to the gameplay part. Such as less repetitive stuff. But still, promosing so far.

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I mean they can keep upgrading it but why bother when they have more capable engines already. (11 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I just think it shows its age in a lot of ways in FC5 and they have better tech so they should use it. (11 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth if they still pay royalties to crytech when using it they probably should (11 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX Although I think it's kinda time to retire Dunia. (11 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @HR2: a lot of studios used modified UE3, games like Arkham Knight, XCom2, both being very problematic on pc. Interesting to see what those studios will do for their next games. (11 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @HR2: Ubisoft uses their own engines. They have like.. three solid in house game engines. (11 Hours ago)
  • HR2
    HR2 @Melmoth: agreed. speaking of Ubisoft, I wonder which engine they're using for the next Splinter Cell. a heavily modified UE3 like Batman AK or UE4? (11 Hours ago)
