Ubisoft has just proudly announced that Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood has gone gold for the PS3 and Xbox 360 and will hit shelves in North American on November 16th and Europe on November 19th. After a ropey start with the 2007 original, the series really hit its stride with Assassin's Creed II, expanding the world and refining the gamplay to move away from repetitive missions and towards, well, fun.
For Brotherhood, players will take on the role of Ezio once more in an an epic struggle against the powerful Templar Order. Offering more single-player game play than Assassin’s Creed II, players now play as a legendary Master Assassin, and journey into Italy’s greatest city, Rome, center of power, greed and corruption to strike at the heart of the enemy. For the first time in the franchise’s history, Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood offers never-before-seen multiplayer, awarded “Best Multiplayer Game,” by the prestigious Game Critics organization, at E3 2010.
Players will have the opportunity to experience things from the Templar’s perspective when they step into the shoes of an elite Abstergo agent, hand-picked to undergo training in order to better fight the Assassins. Players can choose from a wide range of unique characters, each with their own signature weapons and assassination techniques, and match their skills against other players from all over the world in different game modes. The multi-player suite coupled with an extensive single player campaign makes Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood not only the best Assassin’s experience to date, but the best value as well.
“Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood is the largest and most ambitious title we have ever created,”
said Sebastien Puel, executive producer at Ubisoft Montreal. “Not only will players get a fully robust and upgraded single-player game that is larger than Assassin’s Creed II, but an award winning multi-player component as well. Brotherhood is the biggest Assassin’s experience we have ever created.”
Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood is a worldwide production effort led by the Ubisoft Montreal Studio in collaboration with Ubisoft studios in Singapore, Bucharest, Québec City and Annecy.
Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood is rated 18+ by PEGI. For more news and information on Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood, please visit the game’s official website at www.assassinscreed.com
