Players will have the opportunity to experience the world from the Templarsí perspective when they step into the shoes of an elite Abstergo agent, hand-picked to undergo training in order to better fight the Assassins. Players can choose from a wide range of unique characters, each with their own signature weapons and assassination techniques, and match their skills against other players from all over the world in different game modes. The multiplayer suite, coupled with an extensive single-player campaign, makes Assassinís Creed Brotherhood not only the best Assassinís experience to date, but the best value as well.
