Brotherhood isn’t some ‘multiplayer only’ experiment: the kind of game where it wants to rely on only one online trick to convince customers to part with their hard-earned money because it uses ‘multiplayer’ like a magic word.
When Ubisoft began to talk up Brotherhood in the past year, it was hard to ignore how much of a tease they were making of its multiplayer but not so much of its single-player. The reason, it turns out, is because the single-player is alive and well and needs no introduction.
It looks as if a poster on Ubisoft’s official forums has managed to get their hands on a message that includes details on the upcoming sequel to Ubisofts 2007 action game. The message has now been deleted.
The post which contained information to be published in the May issue of Game Informer magazine, reveals a plethora of information on Assassin’s Creed 2, some of which was hinted at in the recent teaser trailer.
Assassin’s Creed fans will remember the Animus project and Ubisoft has put together a teaser site for the sequel based around the name, providing tantalizing hints as to what is going to be revealed later this month on the 16th in Game Informer. A few interesting images are shown in succession, providing plenty of da Vinci inspired sketches hinting that the next adventure may take place in Renaissance Italy.
Hopefully the next game will have more unique opportunities in exploring the world and less of the repetition, but any chance to head back into one of Ubisoft’s visually stunning sets is always something to look forward to.
