Assassin's Creed 2 gets cel-shading

Nifty PC mod gives Ubi's quest an improved, edgier look

Console gamers are used to cheat codes that enlarge heads, rip out textures or make everything all psychedelic. Playful, but otherwise pointless. PC gamers get this - a clever mod that actually improves the look of Assassin's Creed 2.

The below video is a demonstration of a user mod entitled "Mod Colour Correction and Cel Shading". Doing exactly what it says on the tin, it improves the colours of the game's world, then slaps lovely black cel shading lines around even its most minute of details.

The result is a comic book style that we think suits the game better than the default visuals.

Check it out below, and head through here to get the mod for yourself (according to the video description).
