Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood Announced
I was a huge fan of both the first and second Assassin's Creed and according to a pretty little press release, we can now expect a full(?) multiplayer experience from Ubisoft Montreal called Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood.
"And for the first time, Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood offers a never-before-seen multiplayer layer. Players can help the Templars by using Abstergo to train in the art of Assassination to eliminate the Assassins once and for all. 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."
So it seems to be a class based multiplayer game. While I was a huge fan of the first two, I'm not sold on this one whatsoever. The thoughts of using Assassin's Creed's combat in multiplayer is a bit confusing. I just do not see how it will work. Also, what about the price? I doubt they're dumb enough to charge 60 dollars for this, even 40 dollars may be a bit too steep. I assume we'll see a bit more about it at E3 but until then, I will remain skeptical.
Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood is scheduled for release in Late 2010 for the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.
