The news Assassin’s Creed fans have been waiting for was released by Ubisoft proclaiming Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood has indeed gone gold.
While Assassin’s Creed II received plenty of praise last year, Ezio returns in the next installment to journey into Italy’s greatest city, Rome, to strike against the Templar Order. While we know what we can expect of the single-player campaign, it is the franchise’s foray into online multiplayer that has gamers intrigued. After it was awarded “Best Multiplayer Game” by the Game Critics organization at E3 2010, there is plenty of buzz surrounding this mode.
Sebastien Puel, Executive Producer at Ubisoft Montreal, noted:
“Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood is the largest and most ambitious title we have ever created. Not only will players get a fully robust and upgraded single-player game that is larger than Assassin’s Creed II, but an award winning multiplayer component as well. Brotherhood is the biggest Assassin’s experience we have ever created.”
The game is finalized and ready to hit stores in North America on November 16, 2010 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
