Ubisoft has told Eurogamer that Assassin's Creed 2 will launch on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 here on 20th November. The 17th November date announced at E3 was for the US.

The UK will also get an exclusive Black Edition of Assassin's Creed 2, which costs 70 English Queenpounds.

That's because the black, holographic box will be stuffed with goodies. Specifically, a 64-page leather-and-parchment-style "Conspiracy" development book; an Ezio figurine wearing "Master Assassin" garb; three in-game bonus quests promising to cover "the most prestigious moments" of the Italian Renaissance; the soundtrack by Jesper Kyd; and behind-the-scenes developer interviews.

Or so says Play, which appears to be the only site offering the Black Edition box.

Head over to our Assassin's Creed 2 gamepage for E3 trailers and screenshots. They're very pretty.
