Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood – PC requirements, release date announced

Assassins Creed Brotherhood_PC Release Date and Req Announcements_s1

We are big fans of Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood, but up until now, its Renaissance goodness has been limited to the 360 and PS3. Well, come March 22, all of that will change when Brotherhood hits store shelves and download outlets for the PC. Ezio continues his war with the Templars in Brotherhood, taking the fight to their stronghold: Rome. In the process, he becomes a Master Assassin and recruits pupils of his own, who, like the various guilds about the city, will come to his aid when called. The single-player adventure is a wild ride, but the game gets even better online, when everyone dons a costume and hides amongst hordes of AI-controlled characters in an effort to snuff out their target before they fall under another’s blade.
