Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood Lands A Release Date
Assassin's Creed II is absolutely one of the generation's best, which is why millions of franchise fans will be anxiously awaiting this year's entry.
It may seem a little fast but we do have faith in Ubisoft's talented team, and we know Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood should be another big title for the holiday season. Up until now, however, we didn't have an exact release date. But news from E3 has confirmed that Ezio's newest adventure will drop on November 16, 2010 for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC, which is exactly one week after Activision brings out their hotly anticipated Call of Duty: Black Ops. ...man, this sounds a lot like last year's scenario with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and ACII, doesn't it? Ubisoft was one of the few publishers out there unfazed by MW2's star power and they released ACII with confidence. It wasn't unwarranted, either, as they went on to ship over 6 million copies of the awesome title. However, is anyone else the slightest bit concerned about this potential new focus on multiplayer in Brotherhood? Are we expecting a drop in the length and overall quality of the single-player campaign as a result? Sadly, this has been a common occurrence this generation and we're hoping against hope...
But the multiplayer does sound appealing: players will have to aid the Templars by using Abstergo to train in the art of assassination and eliminate the Assassins. A cast of unique characters awaits, too, so it ought to be fairly entertaining.
