Ubisoft announced today that Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood for the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation3 has shipped and is now available at retail stores across North America. Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood is a worldwide production effort led by Ubisoft Montreal in collaboration with Ubisoft studios in Singapore, Bucharest, Québec City and Annecy. The game is available for an MSRP of $59.99.
The critically acclaimed single-player experience of Assassin’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 Assassin’s Creed II, players play as a legendary Master Assassin, and journey into Italy’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 franchise’s history, Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood offers never-before-seen multiplayer. Players will have the opportunity to experience the world from the Templars’ 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 Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood not only the best Assassin’s experience to date, but the best value as well.
Also today, Ubisoft updates Assassin’s Creed Project Legacy, the social role playing game for Facebook. The new “Rome Pack” 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.
*To enable the connectivity between Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood and Project Legacy, players must connect their PS3/Xbox LIVE account with their Ubi.com account and then link their Facebook and Ubi.com accounts.
