Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood picks up where Assassin’s Creed II left off. Players attempt to restore peace to Rome (circa 1500) by regaining control of the city’s districts. Fans of previous versions of Assassin’s Creed will not be disappointed as there are still plenty of rooftop and structures to be climbed and/or traversed including the Colosseum and the Pantheon.
Players’s will be crossing the countryside on horseback as well as recruiting, training and customizing rebel citizens to become their own assassins to then dispatch on various missions to distract or attack.
Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood is the first game in the series to feature multiplayer mode, which also includes a leveling system, that allows players to unlock rewards by earning experience points during the matches and gaining new levels.
