Ubisoft has revealed the sequel to Assassin's Creed to will be out on 17th November.
It's set in 1486, according to a trailer which was played at Ubi's E3 press conference. It showed a group of men in masks going to a ball in Venice. One of them gets separated from his mates while dancing with a lady, and next thing you know he's keeling over with a very sore throat.
Altair replacement Ezio's to blame. A bit of kicking and stabbing ensues before Ezio is chased through the canals of Venice, ending up in St. Mark's Square. One of his pursuers appears unimpressed by the fact Ezio can produce a blade from his sleeve, but is less smug when he's shot by whatever's up the other one.
It all looked very impressive, with some amazingly fluid animations and brilliant lighting. Here's looking forward to our proper look at Assassin's Creed 2 later in the week.
