I tend to let these things collect, and end up doing one big megapost as it were, instead of doing little ones.
There’s been a lot of information going around about the latest in the Assassin’s Creed series, called Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood. It all started out as I recall with a teaser on Facebook.
"It is the time of our rising. A new age enters and a great battle looms. Templar destiny is at hand and waiting for you."
After some box art was leaked, then a viral website with a teaser video opened up this week after some people received letters from a Dr. Warren Vidic, one of the characters from the series.
Hello and welcome to the new era of Abstergo Industries. I am Dr. Warren Vidic, the head genetic researcher and lead on the Animus Project. I would like to extend to you a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that will ensure your place in history. An offering to you to welcome a new dawn of man. Take this image and answer my call. A great battle looms to finish the past and begin the future. JOIN US…and see a new era rise.
Dr. Warren Vidic”
Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood is not really a sequel in the series, but mainly a spin-off, or a continuation of the story in Assassin’s Creed II, with Ezio making an appearance again. Rome is a location thought to be in the game, and Ezio is said to enlist help from the Brotherhood of assassins, which you can recruit. The singleplayer is said to be 15 hours long Also a new multiplayer will feature as well.
It’s a collaborative effort by several Ubisoft studios, and will be available for PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 by the end of the year.
By the way, you might be interested to learn that there is an Assassin’s Creed II: Game of the Year Edition coming out this month, on May 21st.
