The lights are on
We’ve known for a while that the next Assassin’s Creed wouldn’t be the official third entry that ended the trilogy, but rather something of a side story that would continue the adventures of AC II’s main man Ezio. This spinoff title would take place, at least partially, in Rome and would somehow incorporate multiplayer. What we didn’t know about that game was its name. Until now. This fall you can look forward to playing Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood.
Early marketing materials for Assassin's Creed Brotherhood leaked out of GameStop earlier today. We contacted Ubisoft about the photos (below) and the company confirmed that they are real. Ubisoft also promised they’d release more information about the game early next week. This is exciting news for Assassin’s Creed fans. Stay tuned for more information about the game when it becomes available next week.

CAIO EZIO WOULD LIKE TO LOOK AT ZEE BOOKS!?
A PRESTO EZIO!
first 2 games were awesome
really excited for this to come out
This kids excited. we got robbed by not having Rome.
im still boycotting them for the DRM
Loved climbing in Assassin's Creed. Hated everything else.
Loved the story, mission structure, and climbing in Assassin's Creed 2. Hated anything that involved interacting with the game's brain dead A.I....which basically is everything else.
This series needs to drastically overhaul its combat engine (just ripoff Batman's freeflow combat) and hire people who know how to actually program A.I. in order to succeed as a game experience.
I loved AC2 soooo much, but on a level similar to Indigo Prophecy (haven't played Heavy Rain yet) rather than an action/stealth game. Arkham Asylum totally does the assassin thing better than Ezio or Altair ever did, and when things got up close and personal the gameplay was even better.
Basically what I'm saying is, this Brotherhood game is milking the franchise for all it's worth. (...I don't know how you would get that from my above paragraphs either)
Gotta love AC! I wonder what the multiplayer will consist of. I enjoy co-op more than competitive personally. It's hard for me to imagine deathmatch type games in AC.
"Fallout: New Vegas," "LA Noire," and now this?
If these dates hold up, autumn is going to be perfect.
wow i think im shaking
3 won't be set in Tokyo. This series has a western civilization feel to it, and that will not translate to Japan.
I heard acIII also features ezio
Yo ezio, Imma let you finish, but Alta'ir was the coolest character of all time! The multiplay sounds cool though. I was thnking that would be un the other day. I should get a royalty check xD
Yes. Yes. Yes. This is amazing. I cannot wait. I'll be heading to GameStop...today.
Side story games usually aren't great. Maybe this will be different. It definitely can't be as good as AC2, though.
didn't bloodlines fail miserable
I wish AC III were sooner but way to market the series Ubisoft I will buy this too.
Ohhh My God this is epic
