Delve deeper into the secret society of assassins with the sequel to the blockbuster action-adventure game. Assassin's Creed 2 is an epic story of family, vengeance and conspiracy set in the pristine, yet brutal, backdrop of a Renaissance Italy. Ezio befriends Leonardo da Vinci, takes on Florence's most powerful families and ventures throughout the canals of Venice where he learns to become a master assassin. This game retains the core gameplay experience that made the first opus a resounding success and features new experiences that will surprise and challenge players. This Master's Edition (available at select retailers) includes a number of bonus materials for fans. Packed in this package is a Collectable Ezio Statuette (8.5"), "The Art of Assassins Creed" artbook, two exclusive in-game maps (Palazzo Medici & Santa Maria Dei Frari,) and a bonus DVD featuring behind-the-scenes video and musical soundtrack selections, all in a premium metal case.
