Assassins Creed Brotherhood PC Specs and details revealed

Platformer Ubisoft PC News Adventure Action

Ubisoft announces the release date, details and specs for Assassins Creed Brotherhood for the PC.

Assassins Creed Brotherhood continues the adventure of Ezio from the game that came slightly before as he adventures through Rome in a battle against the Templar Order. But he is not alone in this ordeal, as a Master Assassin, Ezio has at his command a Brotherhood of Assassins to defeat their mortal enemies.

Not only is there a single-player component, but there is also a Multiplayer component to the game which involves players siding with either the Assassins or the Templars in PvP combat.

The game is set to be released on the 17th March 2011 for the PC platform and is looking like it’s to be the definitive version of the product. The game is set to be released in three flavours; ‘Standard Edition’, ‘Codex Edition’ and the ‘Auditore Edition’. Though, curiously enough, there isn’t an edition that includes everything from all the editions as some items appear to be exclusive to each edition.  The closest package to an all-encompassing edition is the ‘Codex Edition’, though that appears to be missing one item that’s exclusive to the ‘Auditore Edition’.

Here’s a run down of each edition –
