View Full Version : Thie Misrepresentation of AC: Brotherhood

It's pretty flagrant and outlandish. From people posting on sites that it's just a multiplayer expansion of AC2 to the latter of it simply being a few extra missions and a multiplayer game. I actually saw in the comments of this article the other day where this guy who seemed pretty intelligent told the other readers that it was a "glorified expansion" ala Bloodlines and Desmond wasn't even in the game. Which, he honestly probably believed. I think Ubisoft hasn't done a very good job in showing the single player off enough. I think that's the number one reason for these misunderstandings and I don't know if it's just me, but to see so many people know almost nothing about this game is almost disturbing.

I understand why they chose to call it Brotherhood instead of three, considering it's the continuation of Ezio's story and not a new ancestor or and entirely Desmond based game, but yeah, is it just me? It seems pretty flagrant and rampant.

Well, it is nerve racking that not much is known about the single-player game. I remember around this time last year we knew a lot more about ACII then we do now about ACB. We had gameplay videos and all that. I don't think the reaosn why they're holding back info is because the game sucks, I think they're just trying to conceal the game more because they want to surprise us. Just as you said though, we don't really know anything about the single player, so to come up with pre-conceptions of the game now before we know anything would only be unsubstantial.

I agree. Even over at gamefaqs, a lot of topics spring up every week, asking exactly what this game is. Some people think its DLC.

And the question is, is it worth getting the codex edition for 85 euros if it's so short? I never regreted getting the black edition for AC2 but what about this one?

It's sort of surprising about how many people don't think this is a full game or will have SP!

k Guys, it's a full game. There is Singleplayer in it.
Just because you're only playing in Rome and Monteriggioni (as far as these 2 are the only 2 cities that has been confirmed) doesn't mean it isn't a full game. Rome is 3 times bigger than Venice, and Venice was the biggest city in AC2.

Imma say this one more time: Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood is a full game, with Single- and Multiplayer.

Oh, and I think people just don't look good. There are trailers about the Singleplayer (E3 Walkthrough in Monteriggioni, the trailer where Ezio walks through a lot of people with read hats, not sure what that one was called)

the E3 trailer, and i think those people in red hats may be cardinals, or some other high ranking memeber of the church.
but yeah too much ignorance.

I'm quite enjoying the fact we don't know much about the SP at the moment. Obviously there's things I'd like cleared up but I'm more than happy to wait and find out.

Also, I've stopped caring what people think the game is after seeing some of the thread titles on here over the last couple of weeks... even when all the information is right infront of their face they still overlook it lol

If people want to find out more about the game they will, otherwise I don't care http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

Venice was actually bigger back then...
Here's a chart about the population growth in Rome:

Year Population
350 BC 30,000
250 BC 150,000
44 BC 1,000,000
120 1,000,000
330 800,000
410 700800,000
530 90150,000
650 70,000
1000 20,000
1400 20,000
1526 50,00060,000
1528 20,000

20,000 is definately less than in Venice. There were 500 000 people living in Cordoba in the 11th century.

I'm pretty sure there was a desease back then, and even if so. There has been confirmed that Rome is 3 times bigger than Venice.

And I kinda enjoy that we don't know much about the Singleplayer either. I think there's something going to happen that they don't want us to know untill the game is released. Which might be a real big thing.

... Or it's because we're 4 months away of release.

It's not 3 times bigger than Venice though. It's 3 times bigger than Florence. People keep saying Venice but that wasn't the quote.

And regarding the topic, I think that the multiplayer is so much the focus because it's different and new. I agree that they have to get the concept of MP across first before showing much of the single player, which in all honesty will be very similar to AC2.

They said the size of it not the population! That could just mean that there are less civilians around!

Plus, i doubt they really care about the population of the city enough to implement it perfectly into the game!

^This. The same thing happens with every addition to a series of games. Equal ignorance was rampant on these boards a year ago. There were tons of posts that were like "zomg altair moves to ITALY and gets new clothing?!" There's no avoiding it, the best thing you can do is to politely tell people that they're wrong: "Dude, you're an idiot, shut the hell up" works nicely.

Well, sometimes.

Why are you asking this in here when you were just told in another thread it is the case?

The 15 hours was a quote from one of the devs... so yes... it is true!

15 hours of sp seems to me awfully short as an sp, given the fact that i wont play the mp all that much, and i would only buy the codex edition if at all

AC2 was 15 hours without the side missions....

Are you serious? Most games last less than 10 hours and there's nothing else to them, no multiplayer or side missions. With ACB, you'll have 15 hours of story, probably at least that many hours of side missions, and who knows how long you'll spend on multiplayer. That's an incredible value right there.
