Assassin's Creed Brotherhood: New Trailer

If pushed, I think that the Assassin's Creed series, alongside Mass Effect, has probably been my favourite new series this generation, so I've been pretty hyped for Brotherhood, which comes out this thursday.

I managed to get my grubby paws on an early copy and put a couple of hours in over the weekend, but if you feel like a sneak peak at what's to come, then check out this trailer below, which gives a good insight into some of the new mechanics in the game. It's probably worth pointing out at this point that Brotherhood is far more than a bog standard, glorified expansion pack - it's a fully fledged sequel and I'm loving it so far.

    I've never played through an assassins creed game before, will it matter if i jump in here?

      Yep... you really need to play from the beginning...

      The game will most likely start with a quick recap of the story so far as it did in AC2, so you can jump in and have a rough idea of whats going on.

      Furthermore if you enjoy it you can then go an purchase the older games cheap if you want. (Or check the story up online)

    Its brilliant because its so different from all the other games that have been out in the last 3 or 4 years, and it deals with time periods that you honestly wouldn't think a video game could successfully portray.

    Have to say though, I was a bit iffy on Brotherhood for awhile, when MP is introduced into a game that has provided 2 great SP experiences...I get worried. But I've become increasingly intrigued by it over the last couple of weeks that I gave in and pre-ordered it.

    Also, AC has been the only franchise to get me to play a casual Facebook game as well...damn you Project Legacy! -.-

    The trailer needs some Justice.

      Agreed. Genesis trailer for ACII was so awesome.

      check it out if you haven't seen it.

    @Marty: I would recommend playing AC2 first at least. Some of the game controls are improvised from there. It doesn't really matter though, if you are just in for the playing element of the game. If you are looking for the entire storyline, yes, start from AC1.

    @CloneTrooper: Ahahaha I've been playing Project Legacy as well! I hope there is include some in-game extra content for all those hours wasted.

    This is a game selling trailer right here... Seriously, i don't have enough money to get it yet, but i am considering heading down to the nearest store and offering my *ahem* services to any attendant that can get me AC:B

    Mark, is there any Desmond action as well?

      Loads of Desmond action so far - and by far the best out of animus stuff yet.

        Would you still recommend the game to someone who regarded the Desmond bits in the previous games to be total arse? i.e. Me.

        And another thing, how is Ezio even walking around let alone killing more folk? After the ending of the last game, shouldn't he be locked in a nuthouse somewhere screaming DUDE WHAT THE SHIT WAS THAT ABOUT?!?

          It's a weird one - I hated the Desmond stuff as well. But the way they've done it this time is a lot of fun. Bear in mind I'm only roughly two hours in.

            I see. Well, I'll check it out. I grew tired of the first AC quick but AC2 was great. Mainly because Ezio is a fascinating character.

            But there's the rub. I really felt for Ezio at the end asking "Please, I have so many questions" and the game's story basically bitchslapped him. And on top of that, fans of the game regarded him as pointless because all the Animus/Abstergo rubbish is the 'real' story. Like whatever Ezio does is meaningless or something.

            Eff that. Ezio is what made the game for me. Not Kristen Bell and Nolan North sitting around in a warehouse moaning.

            I really hope Ezio doesn't get screwed this time around. If Ubisoft's direction is to completely change the franchise over to the present day stuff with Desmond then they have lost me. Again.

    Yay! Platinumed AC2 just this weekend and I am super-psyched for Brotherhood! Thursday can't come soon enough!

    I couldn't stand AC1. Played up to killing the second boss target, then quit and read the Story FAQ.
    Was AC2 TRULY waaay less monotonous/repetative? If so, maybe I should pick up from there...

      Yes, it is far less repetitive and monotonus than the first one.

      AC2 was a huge improvement over the first game in a lot of areas. The story was way more interesting, the combat and gameplay were polished and it feels like an overall better game. If you can pick it up cheaply it's well worth it.
