Hi all,

I was interested in what exactly the "set of comic book lithographies" were on the Special Film version of Assassin's Creed II (the one that comes with Lineage). A Google search only has the stock description coming up and I wondered if anyone here had more info?

I tried doing a Search here on "Lithograph" but it only turned up a post regarding the first Assassin's Creed collectors edition.

Cheers for any help you can provide.

im not quite sure what your asking, if your asking what lithographies are then they're prints, i assume your talking about some comic book, that has been printed?

Hi, I know what lithographs actually are, I just wondered if anyone had more info on the ones contained in the "Special Film" version.

You can see in this Assassin's Creed II: Special Film Edition (http://www.play.com/Games/PlayStation3/4-/15175830/Assassin-Creed-II-Special-Film-Edition/Product.html?ptsl=1&ob=Price&fb=0) that they are included:

Assassins Creed II: Special Film Edition Includes:
# Assassin's Creed II full game
# Assassin's Creed Lineage - 36 minute film, on DVD
# 3 Comic Book Lithography's
# Unique code to unlock 2 Templar Secret Locations (Palazzo Medici + Santa Maria dei Frari), previously only available in the Assassin's Creed 2 Black Edition

I know what all the other extras are but can't find anything on the lithographs, bar "3 cards in an envelope. They look nice, but they are blank at their backs. The envelope is beautiful too." from the review linked above.

As said above, a lithograph is like a print.

In this case, I'm guessing this set is similar to a pack of postcards. I just wondered what they were actually of.

Weren't they pictures of multiplayer characters. I heard somewhere they had around 30 of those cards, so maybe there will be 30 multiplayer characters?

People seem to be getting confused here. As said already, Lithographs are prints, one artist I know of that used them was MC Escher (I made one in GCSE art, and it wasn't good). This is one of my favourites. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Escher's_Reptiles.jpg) As for what lithographs will be in the Film Ed of AC2, I'm afraid I don't know anything about them.

As for Rupok2s post, this is AC2, not ACB, that is the Special film edition, so I don't think it will be the multiplayer characters. Also, seeing as it says "3 Comic Book Lithography's", I'd say they are prints based on the comic book being made about a Russian assassin during the Cold War (I think that's when its set).

I have the 3 prints - they don't appear to be from the cold war [all I can say] but they are in french - the normal ones will be for your regionhttp://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif


There's an unboxing here:

should show you what you get in the box http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Seems well worth it if your a fan, and don't already have the game?

actually they are from a comic book in french

Assassin's Creed, Tome 1 : Desmond by Corbeyran, Djillali Defali.

You can see the cover is a match with the envelope

They look quite good. The only AC comic I knew of was the one with the Russian Assassin Nikolai Orelov, but I'm now not too sure that its set in the Cold War as I've watched the trailer for the comic and I didn't hear a mention of a war (not quite sure what was happening, and my history is rubbish anyway). Seeing as this (http://assassinscreed.wikia.com/wiki/Assassin's_Creed_comic_book_mini-series) says that its early 20th century, I must be wrong.

But those lithographs (not quite what I was expecting, I've seen only a few lithographs before), but those still look impressive.

Thanks for the link Mr Shade, it was very useful in showing off exactly what the lithographs were of.

PoP Limited Editon also included 3 lithographs. They were much smaller though
