New Assassin's Creed Confirmed, Sneaks Into Fall
Looks like we're already gearing up for another insane fall. 'sigh' ...not sure I can handle it, but it's always fun.
We knew Ubisoft was working on the third Assassin's Creed installment; they gave us a hint at the next title a few months back and mentioned that it would feature an online multiplayer mode. Then we heard about a new registered domain for a game called "Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood," which some viewed as a possible follow-up to Bloodlines for the PSP. But as evidenced by leaked retailer information courtesy of Kotaku, it appears that Brotherhood is in fact the next major entry for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. The promotional info reads:
"Live and breathe as Ezio, now a legendary master assassin, in his struggle against the Templar order. Lead your own brotherhood of assassins and strike at the heart of the enemy, Rome."
The multiplayer aspect of the game is once again mentioned and further reveals a release window: this fall. If you wish to pre-order with GameStop, you'll net yourself an "exclusive multiplayer character," so that might be worth your deposit. Lastly, besides Ezio, we see the picture of a female assassin in the background so perhaps that's a major storyline character. Being big fans of last year's Assassin's Creed II, we just can't wait for this one...provided there isn't an over-emphasis on multiplayer that sacrifices single-player goodness.
