The first Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood info has gone live and we’re suprised. We were expecting Assassin’s Creed 2.5, but it looks like were wrong.
The game will come with with a new 15 hour single player campaign. Ezio will recuit allies and lead a ‘brotherhood’ against the Templar Order in Rome.
Leonardo Da Vinci, Machiavelli, and Caterina Sforza will be at hand to provide a bunch secret weapons such as poison darts, parachutes and flying machines.
Don’t forget, this will be the first Assassin’s Creed to include online multiplayer. You will utilize Abstergo to train in Assassination with other characters that each have their own “signature weapons and assassination techniques”, and match your newly honed skills against other players in different a number of unspecified game modes.
We are very eagar to learn more about this. E3 can’t happen sooner.
Here’s the press info:
