Instead of releasing Assassin’s Creed III, a spin-off staring AC II hero Ezio Auditore de Firenze will be coming in Fall 2010. The game will be entitled Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood and will boost online multiplayer to help justify your new Ubisoft purchase.
I would have assumed that Ubisoft was saving the official announcement of this game for E3, but someone at Gamestop leaked some box art and the rest is history. A Ubi representative has confirmed the image’s authenticity and stated that more information will be revealed next week. For now, check out the Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood promo box and what it says about the game below.
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.
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.
Lead your own brotherhood of assassins, as Ezio, and conquer Rome.”
