Assassins Creed : Brotherhood

Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood is a computer game available for the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360. It is a historical fantasy third person action adventure based game which has been developed by Ubisoft Montreal. The game is part of the sequel Assassin’s Creed II, the character Ezio Auditore da Firenze and Desmond Miles both return to the game play. Unlike numerous other games within the series, this game offers multiplayer mode for the first time. The game is a third person action adventure which is focused on sandbox style gameplay within an open world of the country of Italy.

The gameplay’s core mechanics come from parkour movements, crow blending stealth, assassinations and melee fighting sytems. The game introduces a brand-new management system: the player can recruit new members by destroying any of twelve "Borgia towers" around Rome where papal troops are stationed, then rescuing disgruntled citizens in their districts from harassing guards. The player as Ezio can then send them to assignments around Europe or call them for support during missions (if they are not already occupied).

Tasking the novice Assassins is essential to make them gain experience, and the player will be able to customize their appearance, skills and weapon training by spending the skill points they've earned. Assassins can die on missions, from which they will not return. The player will master new gadgets, such as Leonardo da Vinci's parachute, which can be used when jumping from tall buildings. The player is provided with the task of rebuilding Rome, this has fallen to ruins due to the corrupt rule of the Templars over the Papal States and concentrating all of the wealth on one area. The player will also be faced with task of conquering and destroying Borgia’s towers in order to free city zones from the family’s influence. The combat system has been upgraded to be faster and more dynamic. Striking first and offensive actions will be more deadly in Brotherhood than previous games where counter-attacks were the most efficient. This made the player wait until the AI strikes which slowed down the pace of fighting.

The AI in this game is thus more aggressive and enemies can attack simultaneously. To dispatch them, Ezio can use melee and ranged weapons at the same time as well, introducing the hidden pistol in combat. It has been shown that Ezio can throw axes and spears toward his enemies. The role of horses in much larger in the Brotherhood game, not only as transport but also as a component of the acrobatic sequences and also advanced combat.

The next Assassins Creed game is already being developed and many fans have stated they are looking forward to the release. The Brotherhood game sold thousands of copies on release day and the developers are hoping future games will continue in the footsteps.
