Ever since the first game, players have been clamoring for multiplayer, and now finally the third in the series, Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood gives us just that.
While the hero of the last title, Ezio, is back for the single player campaign, in multiplayer you'll choose between one of eight renaissance characters. These won't be very unique, but that's the point, because in Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood multiplayer, you'll want to blend into the crowds, to try avoid other assassins. It's certainly a break from the more flamboyant in-game avatars we're used to seeing.
In the game we tried, called Wanted, your task is to kill a target without being caught by the enemy, and before the other assassins in the multiplayer game. There's also an Alliance version in Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, which sees you cooperating to kill targets, against other teams of assassins.
While each character has their own attack styles, it's still pretty automated and easy to execute although they do look good! What we've see so far of Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood is as flashy as gamers have come to expect, while the multiplayer element looks like being something you could spend many hours doing.
Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood looks like being a really exciting game and a great development for the series. Bring on November!
