Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood will be here before you know it – November 2010 launch. Do you feel the need to freshen up on your Assassin’s Creed skills and knowledge before Brotherhood is released? Altair won’t be in AC Brotherhood, but it is still fun to replay where the franchise began. How many times have you replayed AC1 and AC2? How many times will you play them again before Brotherhood is launched?
The new GameTrailers.com trailer shows the apprentice and archers in action on Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood. They call them airstrikes, but that’s not a good term for it IMO. You will just see a wall of like 7 guars get mowed down by arrows. Can’t wait for this game to come out!
Collector’s additions are becoming more and more popular these days. It’s a great way doe game developers to make more money and for fans to enjoy more of their favorite games. So much goes into developing a game… in the past it was all lost and never used. Now we have so many extras available it will make you poo your pants.
The Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood Collector’s Edition includes a Bonus Disc with a ‘Making Of’ video, Game soundtrack, Trailers and Developer Diary, and Digital Sneak Peek at the Assassin’s Creed Comic; Hard Copy Strategy Map of Rome; Exclusive Art Book; Two Exclusive In-Game Single-Player Maps; and Collectible ‘The Doctor’ Jack-In-The-Box at $99.99.
That’s a hell of a lot of extras for only $99 (which is only $40 more than the game normally costs). Start saving up now – you have plenty of time until the November launch to gather $99.
Ubisoft & GameStop have signed another agreement that allows GameStop to be to exclusive provider for the early multiplayer beta launch. A few months ago we announced that you could unlock Harlequin by preordering Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood at GameStop, well now PS3 owners have another reason to buy there.
I think a preorder will only run you $5, so you may as well do it and then if for some reason you have to cancel down the road you’ll only be out $5 – but at least you will have had access to multiplayer in September. A limited number of beta tokens will be distributed by GameStop on a first-come, first-served basis starting on August 9. Players who have already preordered the game can bring in their receipts to grab a token.
What do you think of game developers signing exclusive deals with retailers? I’m not sure I like it – I mean, if you live out in the country and the nearest GameStop is 100 miles away are you any less deserving of getting the multiplayer beta than someone who lives in New York City?
Ubisoft has confirmed that Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood will be playable at GamesCom – Europe’s equivalent to E3. Gamescom 2010 will be held from 18 to 22 August 2010 at the Cologne Trade Fair Center in Germany. AC fans in Europe will get a hands on experience of both single and multiplayer modes during the convention.
The release of new game footage has been a little slow lately, but it will surely amp up during GamesCom.
Ubisoft just announced the addition of two new Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood multiplayer characters. This brings the total count up to around a dozen. The two new characters are: The Blacksmith and The Soldier. These two characters won’t be available for the beta launch on PS3 in September, but they will be there when the real game comes out.
The Blacksmith’s features include a beard and big fat hammer, while the Soldier, who will reportedly be a Best Buy exclusive, comes fully armored with a sword and significantly less body fat.
Just found a new selection of some kick ass Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood fan art on DeviantArt. With about 4 months left until the game is released, I think we’ll start seeing a lot more fan art come in soon.
This first one though was actually drawn before E3 and then editing afterwards – the artist fixed the blade among other things..

This one is a unique fan drawing of Ezio and Rosa – kind of odd but pretty good

This one looks like a sig you can use on a forum. Pretty hot!

During the Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood single player walkthrough video you will notice that the villa you pimped out in Assassin’s Creed 2 has been destroyed. It’s a sad sight to see for sure. So far, the only confirmed city in AC:B is Roma – and your Villa is not in Roma. So imagine for a minute that instead of doing up a villa, this time we get to control a section of city? Multiple buildings, houses and armories.
This would allow you to gain respect from local citizens (like in Fable) and have them rally on your side against the guards.
What do you think? WOuld you rather have a single Villa or a section of the city?
Good news for Playstation 3 owners… it was announced at Comic-Con San Diego that Ubisoft will release Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood beta onto the PlayStation 3 in September. The beta will be a test of the multiplayer mode and will be available via download over the PS3 console network.
The multiplayer mod will work like: you have a target to assassinate, but someone you are playing with will have you as a target to assassinate. You will need to kill your target before you get killed and without getting noticed.
