Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood Confirmed by Ubisoft, Features Multiplayer

A new title featuring Assassin’s Creed II hero Ezio was rumored for quite some time – but it has finally been confirmed. Ubisoft today has revealed information we all knew was coming, and has announced Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, a full-fledged PS3 title.

Yesterday, placeholder art was leaked of a new Assassin’s Creed title – Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood. It was undecided whether the image was in fact real or not, until an Ubisoft representative confirmed the existence of the title, saying: “Ubisoft confirms the authenticity of this image and will provide more information next week.” Nothing more was said, but the placeholder art does reveal some details about the game.

“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,” it goes on to say.

“And for the first time, take part in an innovative multiplayer layer allowing you to embody an assassin of your choosing and define their killing style. A never-before-seen online multiplayer experience.”

Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood is rumored to hit this year, after a LinkedIn resume revealed a 2010 release for an unknown Assassin’s Creed title.
