Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood - PS3 content, trailer and Raiden!
I've said it before, and I'll say it again. Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood was the absolute most fun I had at E3! I remember being a kid and playing "Spy" with my friends. We used to sneak around the neighborhood and act like we were hiding from people who were going in and out of their houses pretending that they were bad guys and that we were the spys that were tailing them. This is the best description I can give to explain the experience I had trying out the multiplayer mode of Assasssin's Creed: Brotherhood. It's a gigantic spy game with friends! It's unique, it's fresh, it's ground breaking, and I couldn't get enough of it! At the risk of getting my hopes up, I absolutely cannot wait for this title to be released.
Now, let's get down to the meat and potatoes. It seems that a lot of times when a game title is released for mutiple platforms like the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC, free exclusive content is often offered to people picking up the PS3 version (way to go, Sony sales & marketing team!). Just look at Batman: Arkham Asylum, Mafia II and the upcoming Dead Space 2. The screen shot that you see at the top of this post is a screenshot of the exclusive content that Ubisoft plans to reward buyers who purchase the PS3 version of Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood. It's called Copernicus Conspiracy and it features many new missions which are commissioned to the main character Ezio by the astronomer Copernicus. This content will be a free download on PSN when the game launches on November 16th.
Now let's take a look at the next two pics...
See someone you recognize?
Raiden the cyborg ninja from the Metal gear Solid series will be featured as an unlockable skin in Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood. That oughta put some cream in your coffee! No word on if this will be exclusive to any particular platform. Big ups to the Joystiq guys for this info.
Now let's all enjoy a new Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood trailer!
Oh, don't forget about the awesome Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood collector's edition that will be coming out as well. Chances are that this will be taking up space in my house very soon.
