Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood Preview

Posted by Grey Saturday, July 17, 2010

One of E3's best trailers happened to be that of Ezio's latest and potentially deadly return. We take a further look at the upcoming installment of the Assassin's Creed series.

Having earlier featured an entry on the direct sequel (as opposed to a spin-off) to the critically acclaimed Assassin's Creed II upon the release of its teaser trailer, we take a closer look into, quite possibly this year's Game Of The Year contender, Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood.

With the confirmed departure of Creative Director Patrice D├ęsilets (reportedly, an extended sabbatical) from Ubisoft Montreal, the studio responsible for the series, wasted no time in churning out the second sequel well within a year of the release of its predecessor. In keeping with the series' sandbox style gameplay, players will once again step into the role of Ezio, who is by now a Master Assassin and on a deadly quest in Rome to put a stop to the Templar's reign. All the Parkour-like movements, cleverly imposed stealth elements, melee fighting mechanics, along with the signature assassination moves that fans are familiar with will still be the core features of the latest installment.

However, several game-changing features will be introduced while players control Ezio through the genetic memory of Desmond Miles, via the use of the Animus. As Ezio is by now a Master Assassin, he has to reorganize the eponymous Brotherhood in Rome in a final fight against the Templars. Players can assess to the new management system of which new members can be recruited and assigned on mission, or summoned for support during missions. These new members can be customized respectively, down to the weapons they uses. Ezio himself will also get to learn to master new gadgets as well. Players will also get to invest in the city of Rome, and much like the village of Monteriggioni in Assassin's Creed II, rewards will be unlocked. Prepare to wreak havoc in Vatican.

The full cinematic trailer was unveiled during last month's E3 200, and fans were treated with one of the most gorgeous video trailers around. Check out the trailer embedded below, as Ezio walked the bloody path into a finale battle with the Templars.

Meanwhile, the unique multiplayer trailer was also very well-received at the E3 2010, receiving recognition from GameTrailers when they awarded it the Best Multiplayer Game of the show. Check it out right below.
