as far as I understand this is just an expansion for the Assassins creed II?

woohoo, can't wait!

will this have Ubisoft's crappy DRM? internet connection isn't in minimal requirements, so let's hope they've learnt their lesson.

Pretty sure they removed it from AC2 so I can't imagine they'll force it for the new game.

It is a continuation of the story, but not a expansion AFAIK. It is a standalone game, you don't need AC2 to play it.

They patched Assassin's Creed II now anyway, the DRM required now is just internet connection when you start the game (like Steam basically). So I can only imagine Brotherhood is the same.

I wrote badly; is the game as long, complete as Ass.Cr.II? or just a mini-pack?

~15 hours is what they write on internet.

The caption to the picture says it'll be released on March 22nd, but the text says March 18th for UK and Europe... Just wondered which one I should look forward to.

Read the second line of the article.
(I'll update it to make it clearer.)

Longer IIRC. Fantastic game, liked it more than ACII.

i thought with AC2, you needed to spend £4 on Steam to have the Ubisoft DRM removed.

so does Steam version (Deluxe edition?) still have the Ubisoft DRM launcher?

Looking forward to it, AC2 was an amazing game.

They've dropped the always online DRM for this one, you just need to sign in every so often with this one (I think)...

It's a stand alone game, but they probably should have just made an expansion instead.

Will this be the last in the series of the AC games?

AC III due after 2011, sometime.

Worth it to play AC2 if you never have? Or do you reckon this is good by itself?

Good by itself but I really would play AC2 first. Although it's a stand alone the story does flow from AC:2 to AC:BH.

Yeah, thinking about it. AC2 first, that's a cracking game as well though.

Play ac2. Its a fine game and it will get you chonping at the bit fie ac brotherhood!

I'd definitely play AC2 first if you haven't, and if you haven't played AC at least go read up on the plot first. A lot of hard work went into the storyline for AC. It's a real shame not to pay attention to it.

With regards to whether or not the game is long enough, if you do all the side missions you can play for ages, just the main ones and it'll be fairly short. However, I may be getting this game purely for the multiplayer. I've been playing it on the 360 since the end of January and it is the best online thing I've played (tbf though I haven't really touched multiplayer games since the FPS stuff I used to play in my early 20s, apart from L4D/2). The match-making is a bit dodgy still, but even just playing Wanted I cannot put it down. Every evening I look forward to my dose of stabbings :D

Given the time gap between the console and PC versions, the alternative interpretation for this article's headline is pretty apt: "Assassins Creed Brotherhood for PC: Dated"

Ridiculous delay! What did they do, finish the console game, ship it out and then go "oh yeah, we probably should do the PC port now" and then start...

Still, have it on pre-order so am still looking forward to the release! Am liking the idea of the multiplayer, it sounds exactly like the Assassins society in Cambridge! (and probably other unis, but that's the one I know of personally)

I hope combat is a bit more challenging in this one

It has its moments, if you go for 100% synchronisation then some challenges you have to do in a certain way, how your ancestor did it.

Use certain weapons, stay undetected, time limits and so on...
