Assassin’s Creed 2 is a massive work of art (and effort!), and it shows, as evidenced by the opening disclaimer that several different religious beliefs and cultures were influenced while making the game. The attention to detail, from the architecture and the fashion to the language, is realistic and well thought of. A lot of the characters are actual people, such as Leonardo Di Vinci and Niccolò Machiavelli, whereas some are a work of fiction, which can be arguable about the Auditore family. What I’m going to explain in this guide is the parallel between fiction and reality, and what was real or just extreme coincidence. I’ll also go indepth to some of the nagging questions about what Subject 16 was going on about, and the meaning of the glyphs. Prepare thyself!
