Assassin’s Creed 2: Mercenaries, Prostitutes and thieves

96240-004-A9CAD60AThe second dev diary for Assassin’s Creed 2 just hit the net yesterday and it’s pretty juicy. This diary details Ezio’s decent from nobleman to avenger, introduces us to some of the people that will help our protagonist along his journey and some factions he will encounter. Unlike the first game where Altair got the occasional hand from those he helped, Ezio will have to rely on his underworld connections to get him out of difficult situations, but they wont come without a price. The biggest revelation in the new diary is the introduction of a currency/banking system, players will be able to acquire money(how they get it is up to them) to spend on weapons and other such items.
