What is Assassin's Creed II?

Assassin's Creed II is a historical action-adventure open world stealth video game developed by Ubisoft Montreal and published by Ubisoft. Assassin's Creed II takes place in an open world with nonlinear gameplay, allowing the player to roam freely within several regions throughout late fifteenth-century Italy.

A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The primary executable is named AssassinsCreedII.exe. The setup package generally installs about 119 files and is usually about 35.47 MB (37,190,233 bytes). The installed file AC2.Launcher_update.exe is the auto-update component of the program which is designed to check for software updates and notify and apply them when new versions are discovered.
