Ezio Stalks PCs on March 16th


The PC version of Assassin’s Creed II, as was the case with the original, missed out on launching side by side with its console counterparts over the holidays. But don’t worry, PC gamers, the wait won’t be too much longer.

Today, Ubisoft has penciled Assassin’s Creed II in for a March 16th PC launch. The PC version will be able in two SKUs: a standard retail/digital download edition including the main game and the two upcoming console DLC add-ons (Battle of Forli and Bonfire of the Vanities) for $59.99, and a digital-download-only Black Edition with the aforementioned DLC items and currently unspecified “additional content” for $64.99.

I’ll let you know once Ubisoft specifics the Black Edition’s “additional content,” but for now hit the jump to check out the final system requirements and make sure your PC is up to snuff for the coming release.
