San Francisco â€“ November 16, 2010â€“ Ubisoft announced today that Assassinâ€™s
CreedÂ® Brotherhood for the Xbox 360Â® video game and entertainment system
from Microsoft and the PlayStationÂ®3 computer entertainment system has
shipped and is now available at retail stores across North America.
Assassinâ€™s Creed Brotherhood is a worldwide production effort led by Ubisoft
Montreal in collaboration with Ubisoft studios in Singapore, Bucharest,
QuÃ©bec City and Annecy. The game is rated â€œMâ€ for mature by the ESRB and is
available for an MSRP of $59.99.
The critically acclaimed single-player experience of Assassinâ€™s Creed is
back and better than ever as Ezio returns for an epic struggle against the
powerful Templar Order. Offering more single-player gameplay than Assassinâ€™s
Creed II, players play as a legendary Master Assassin, and journey into
Italyâ€™s great city of Rome, center of power, greed and corruption to strike
at the heart of the enemy.
For the first time in the franchiseâ€™s history, Assassinâ€™s Creed Brotherhood
offers never-before-seen multiplayer and was awarded â€œBest Multiplayer
Game,â€ by the prestigious Game Critics organization at e3 2010. Players will
have the opportunity to experience the world from the Templarsâ€™ perspective
when they step into the shoes of an elite Abstergo agent, hand-picked to
undergo training in order to better fight the Assassins. 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. The multiplayer
suite, coupled with an extensive single-player campaign, makes Assassinâ€™s
Creed Brotherhood not only the best Assassinâ€™s experience to date, but the
best value as well.
Also today, Ubisoft updates Assassinâ€™s Creed Project Legacy, the social role
playing game for Facebook. The new â€œRome Packâ€ update will integrate
game-to-web and web-to-game functionality*, unlocking hidden features
throughout the Assassin’s Creed universe. Players of Assassin’s Creed
Brotherhood will be able to unlock up to 25 exclusive missions in Assassin’s
Creed Project Legacy, allowing players to earn money and experience in
Brotherhood and on Facebook. Assassin’s Creed Project Legacy players will
also be able to unlock extra content in Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood. By
piecing clues together, players will learn the hidden mysteries within the
Assassin’s Creed universe.
