VGS: 'Assassin’s Creed II was released in late 2009, for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Later, it would also come to PC and Mac. Ubisoft released several editions of the game, something they would continue to do with later installments in the series. Aside from the regular version, the US received a Master Assassin's Edition, while the two special editions that were available in the PAL regions were called the White Edition and the Black Edition, with the latter one being the more expansive (and expensive) option. This Black Edition is the one shown here.'
