Assassin's Creed II

Assassin's Creed II is a 2009 action-adventure video game developed by Ubisoft Montreal and published by Ubisoft. It is the second major installment in the Assassin's Creed series, a sequel to 2007's Assassin's Creed, and the first chapter in the Ezio trilogy. The game was first released on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in November 2009, and was later made available on Microsoft Windows in March 2010 and OS X in October 2010. Several minor game related features could be redeemed on Uplay and three downloadable expansion packs were released on Xbox Live. The plot is set in a fictional history setting and follows the centuries-old struggle between the Assassins, who fight for peace with free will, and the Knights Templars, who desire peace through control. The framing story is set in the 21st century and follows Desmond Miles as he relives the genetic memories of his ancestor Ezio Auditore da Firenze. The main narrative takes place at the height of the Renaissance in Italy during the 15th and early 16th century. Players can explore Florence, Venice, Tuscany and Forlì as they guide Ezio on a quest for vengeance against those responsible for betraying his family. The primary focus is to utilize the player's combat and stealth abilities, as Desmond begins to uncover the mysteries left behind by an ancient race known as the First Civilization in the hope of ending the conflict between the Assassins and Templars. Using a newly updated Anvil game engine, Assassin's Creed II began development shortly after the release of Assassin's Creed. The game received critical acclaim from video game publications, with praise directed towards its Renaissance setting, narrative, characters, map design and visuals, as well as improvements from its predecessor. It was the biggest selling game of 2009–2010 and has sold more than 9 million copies. It is considered to be one of the best games ever made, and it popularized the Assassin's Creed franchise. The PC version was met with some criticism in relation to the digital rights management system and, thus had the always-online DRM permanently removed. The game spawned a follow-up, Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood and its direct sequel, Assassin's Creed: Revelations. Remastered versions of all three games were released for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on November 15, 2016 as part of The Ezio Collection.

Ezio Auditore da Firenze:
What do you even want with the Vault, Rodrigo?

Rodrigo Borgia:
Don't you know what lies within? Or do you mean to tell me the great and powerful Assassins didn't figure it out?

Ezio Auditore da Firenze:
Figure out what?

Rodrigo Borgia:
God! It's God that dwells within.

Ezio Auditore da Firenze:
You expect me to believe that God lives beneath il Vaticano?

Rodrigo Borgia:
A more logical location than a kingdom on a cloud, don't you think? Surrounded by singing angels and cherubim. Makes for a lovely image, but the truth is far more interesting.

Ezio Auditore da Firenze:
Let's say I was to believe you - what do you think He'll do when you open that door?

Rodrigo Borgia:
I don't care. It's not approval I'm after, just power.

Ezio Auditore da Firenze:
And you think He'll give it up?

Rodrigo Borgia:
Whatever lies beyond that wall won't be able to resist the Staff and Apple. They were MADE for felling Gods.

Ezio Auditore da Firenze:
God is meant to be all knowing. All powerful. You think a couple of ancient relics can harm Him.

Rodrigo Borgia:
You know nothing, boy. You take your image of the creators from an ancient book - a book, mind you, written by men.

Ezio Auditore da Firenze:
You are the Pope! And yet you dismiss the central text of your Faith?

Rodrigo Borgia:
Are you so na?ve? I became Pope because it gave me access. It gave me power! Do you think I believe a single god-damned word of that ridiculous book? It's all lies and superstition. Just like every other religious tract written over the past ten thousand years.
