Assassin’s Creed II dated on PC, specs revealed

Stealthy stab-me-do Assassin’s Creed II was rightly lauded as one of the best games of 2009, and PC gamers will finally get their own version on March 16th, a full, um, four months after the other platforms. Ouch.

$59.99 will bag you a copy of what is described as a “director’s cut” of the title, including as it does “Battle of Forli” and “Bonfire of the Vanities,” two downloadable episodes that will be appearing soon. Just like the consoles, the PC will get its own special “Black Edition” of Assassin’s Creed II. It’ll cost $64.99, though Ubisoft won’t be revealing its contents until next month.

Before you worry about any of that, however, let’s see if you can actually run the game. Specs away!
