Top-Selling and Critically Acclaimed Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood Takes the Leap to PCs


London, UK – February 22nd, 2011 – Today Ubisoft® announces specifications, details and ship date for Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood on the PC. The critically acclaimed, multi-million unit selling Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood will be available on March 18th, 2011 for the PC. Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood is a worldwide production effort led by the Ubisoft Montreal Studio in collaboration with Ubisoft studios in Singapore, Bucharest, Québec City and Annecy.

* Addition to PR : The North American release date has also been announced - [b]March 22nd.*

For information on release dates in your specific region, please check the official AC website or the Ubishop links in this post.

The critically acclaimed single-player experience of Assassin’s Creed is back and better than ever as Ezio returns in an epic struggle against the powerful Templar Order. Now a legendary Master Assassin, he must journey into Italy’s greatest city, Rome, center of power, greed and corruption to strike at the heart of the enemy. Defeating the corrupt tyrants entrenched there will require not only strength, but leadership, as Ezio commands an entire Brotherhood that will rally to his side. Only by working together can the Assassins defeat their mortal enemies.

And for the first time, Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood offers a never-before-seen multiplayer layer. Players can join the Templar Order and use Abstergo’s technology to train in the art of assassination. 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 a variety of game modes.

The codex edition was previously only available in certain geographical regions and it wasn't available in US, so I'm sure nothing changed here - I guess Ubi somehow omitted that in the press release.

Watcha talking about Willis? On StEAM, the specs for THEIR Digital Deluxe Edition specifically say that Altair's codex will be included. Since it is digital, this probably means the codex will be a PDF, or something. That's alright by me.

As for this little bit of news-wow, I am excited. I am also a little humbled. I spent so many collective hours on here dissing Ubisoft, being mad at them. But I can't be mad at the editions of ACB PC that they've made available for PC gamers. Plus, they've clearly optimized ACB PC better for PC hardware. Lol, I guess I was wrong when I said that Ubisoft doesn't care about PC gamers. They do, they just work in mysterious ways.

Anyway, all that being said, I have one request for Ubisoft, and hopefully it is one that Mr. Shade, or any other mod can pass on. If you make any future AC games for PC, and you want to delay them, just say so at the very beginning. Speaking for myself personally, what angered me the most about the delay was that Ubisoft let us pre-order the game in May 2010, for a November 2010 release. Next time, just tell us right of the bat that the game will be made available later. If you do that, the real PC, AC fans will be ok with that. Especially if the delay means you're going to produce a high quality offering like ACB is obviously going to be.

All that being said, March 18th. can't come fast enough, and between ACB ans Shogun 2-maaan, my time through the summer is BOOKED.

Yes, it can be worth getting, but you'll have to hurry, there probably aren't many of them left. It also depends on where you live, if you live outside the EU or Australia, your really not going to have much of a chance to get it.

My brother already preordered my copy of the Codex edition from Play.com, i checked today when i ordered the Play arts kai ezio figure from there (he let me use his account, so i was able to check), and since it's Limited Edition, they might run out soon after release, we don't know how many they made.

As for the details of the PC version, i'm happy to see we'll get the Leo DLC included (I kinda knew we would, since we weren't getting the Capernico DLC, and it's released on console on 8th of March), it's kind of a shame that the DDE won't get a degital copy of the Codex, MP cards or map (though the strategy guide comes with a map.) or Linage.

And its nice to hear that the DRM isn't as restrictive as it was for AC2, not that i have a poor connection mind you :-p

Guys, go on STEAM. The Digital Deluxe Edition that they're offering has:
1.the officer,

2.the harlequin,

3. Trajan's Market,

4.The Aquadauct,

5.the Helmschmied Dracen armor,

6.Altair's Codex,

7.the trading cards,

8.the game soundtrack,

9.Assasin's creed lineage-the live-action movie detailing the events directly prior to events in AC2.

10. A "Making-of" feature produced by the ACB developers

Oh...and perhaps the best part of all....if you order this thing right now it onl costs the same price as the STANDARD EDITION!

I think it's a steal, guys. the STEAM Digital Deluxe is basically a digital Codex edition. Which is great if you live in the states like I do. Ubisoft and STEAM are almost giving away all of the features for free. Man, I can't wait for March 18th.

EDIT: Lol, I forgot to mention the Map of Rome is included as well.

Yay, pre-ordered Deluxe Edition on GamersGate. BTW, their offer is really good, they have a quiz (http://www.gamersgate.com/competition/assassins-creed-quiz) which, if solved correctly (mostly easy and then there's Google), gives you additional discount. In all, it cost me $39.96, which is €29 (plus you get bonus blue coins).

I trust an official Ubisoft statement more than Steam, so I guess no codex, no cards and no map in the DDE.

After waiting 3 months for the PC version of Assassin's Creed Brotherhood,which was complete bull,I get a release date from a retailer of 2/22/11 and finally that date rolls around and I go to the store to buy the game and guess what?I find out that Ubisoft has once again pushed back the release date.It was bad enough that you made all the PC gamers wait 3 months to play Assassins Creed Brotherhood.But then you give out a bogus release date.I have enjoyed Ubisoft games in the past,but I think I will pass on ACB since you guys can't seem to make up your minds on when you're going to release it.Think I will buy Dragon Age 2 instead,at least Bioware doesn't lie about release dates.I have to say that I am very disappointed in Ubisoft about this,and will be less likely to buy their games in the future.

@ Lusankya84 & AubreyWilborn: Mind the following item in Ubi's list:

o Exclusive additional content featuring the Assassin’s Creed® Brotherhood original soundtrack, galleries, Making-of Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood…

I'd say "galleries"="cards" and "..."="more stuff (such as the Codex)". http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I've been a big critic on this forum, but credit where credit is due.

Kudos to Ubisoft for including all DLC out of the box, and for providing a more reasonable version of the DRM when playing singleplayer.

Kudos to Shade for keeping us in the loop and putting up with all our gripes and complaints.

It's definitely a better system, but it's still not ideal. I'm assuming they're using the same system that AC2 is using now, like the Blizzard system, a check once as you start up the game.

So I've preordered on steam, and hopefully the server's reliability is good for when I want to play it. I'll just have to wait until the end of March to get it so I don't blast my internet cap away early in the month. Any idea on how big it will be?

To reply to restomaniac's statement that Ubisoft did not give a Feb.release date,I think you are mistaken,because I did go to Ubisoft's site and that was the date given for release.I had GameStop look up the release date and it was indeed 2/22/11.Don't know where you are getting your info but I know what I saw on the website.And for the record,I DO check release dates before going to the store.

dude, you dont understand. anything what shops showed before official announcement was wrong.
ubisoft gave a release date on 14th of Feb and confirmed it already so many times that release is 18th March.
they never said it was 22.02 even if half of US online shops showed that date.
there was no date on ubisoft site till announcement, damnit.

It's nice that Ubisoft is dropping the draconian always-on DRM. Though, I want to ask for some clarification.

They said that the single player game can be played offline after an initial login.

Can someone define this "initial login"? Are they saying that it's a one time activation after installing the game or do they mean you have to login every single time you start the game?

Lots of gaming sites/shops gave guess dates.
Belive me if you went in a shop and asked for a release date for a game and they had guessed the release date at head office the guys in your local shop would only have the date they would have no clue it was a guess.
Ubigabe and Shade repeated the fact that 2/22/11 was a guess so many times it was untrue.
Ill say it again 2/22/11 was never an offical release date.

Hi. I started a topic with these quories, but since this one seems to be answering a lot of questions, I'll ask 'em here:

I recently noticed Brotherhood is ready for pre-order from both retails and digital-download solutions.
There's a couple of things I'd like to clarify before purchase:
1. Will the MP use Steam's, dedicated, or Ubisoft's servers for connection? I'd really like to know this- As I'm from Argentina, playing with low ping isn't as easy as in Europe or North America.
2. Will the MP support "cross-console" matchs? (Something like, I play on the PC against a PS3 user).
3. Will both retail and Steam versions bring the all-time-internet DRM? Or just the retail version?
4. If I buy it retail, will it be possible to redeem it on Steam? (Not the Digital Deluxe Ed., just the standard one).

Thanks to anyone who can answer this.

See ya

PS: Sorry for the off-topic but does anyone know if D2D downloads retail files or modified ones?

Amen, preach, and pass the bible. Ubisoft needs to not promise a PC version release at the same time as the console release, and then not follow through with it. I mean, most PC gamers can understand if you need extra time to polish and create a PC version of a game. Just don't lie to us, and say you'll have it out along with the console version. Don't lie to us.


Mr. Shade-please pass all of this on to your bossess. PC gamers don't neccesarily mind waiting for their version to come out. However, Ubisoft should be STRAIGHTFORWARD with such a dealy and announce it RIGHT AT THE BEGINNING. People hate being tricked.

Love the DLC will be free and you guys aren't charging $60 for it here in the states, but I really hope the DRM is just a one-time online activation thing. While logging in online every time I want to play isn't terrible compared to AC2's DRM, it's still far from ideal. As someone who fully intends to buy this game with my hard earned money, I feel I have every right to be able to play the game whether I'm online at home or say at an Airport, Hotel, abroad, or anywhere else where I have no easy way to get online. Unfortunately with my ISP, internet outages are not uncommon either, and it's always a shame not to be able to play an awesome single player game like AC just because I'm having some Internet connection issues.

Without getting into too much more depth, I think this article from rockpapershotgun (http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2011/02/23/opinion-ubisoft-drm/) sums up my opinion pretty well. Using just a one-time online activation system (not unlike Valve and Blizzard do for their games) I'm sure you guys will win back a lot of support from disgruntled PC gamers from the AC2 DRM debacle. Again, thanks for giving the DLC for free, but I'd love to see the AC Brotherhood PC release go as smooth as possible, with little to complain about from us hardcore PC gamers!

Now that Ubi is removing the always-on DRM from Brotherhood, do you think they will release a patch to do the same thing for AC2 or is AC2 gonna have the DRM all the time.
Thanks.

The DRM in AC2 has been already patched, you can play the game in offine mode after the initial login and that's what I think will be in ACB, too.

Yes, it still requires you to run the launcher every time you start AC2 and check for an internet connection.

Yeah, I'm worried this is what Brotherhood will have as well. A lot of gaming sites are giving Ubi a lot of props for getting rid of the always online DRM, but I think a lot of them are assuming this is just a 1-time activation thing, which really hasn't been confirmed by their announcement. Requiring an online check every time we play really isn't that much better. Hope I'm wrong, but the fact they're being so vague with this "initial login" stuff without clarifying doesn't inspire much confidence.

Gabe has written that there is only a one time activation when you install the game. If you had read his twitter on the homepage when they first confirmed the PC specs you would have known.

Yesterday I searched for "definitive" answers regarding the "new"(?) DRM-scheme, and somewhere those Twitter-sentences came up. They appeared to confirm the version that either just a one-time "activation" would be necessary or even that might be voluntarily.

On the other hand, the statements you cited once again use that vague phrasing about "initial login". That could be a one-time thing AS WELL AS a login every time you want to launch the game ...

Ubisoft need to explicitly clarify the matter or gamers like me, who didn't buy any games infected by draconian Ubisoft-DRM and won't in the future will have to wait further -- and if the current trend of "informing" the public continues, we might wait for a looong time (which can be considered not so bad as within some months the price will drop significantly ... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif).

Thanks for the link, but that still uses the vague "initial login" quote, so it's hardly a confirmation either way. The reason we're confused on this is the current AC2 DRM requires an initial online login every time you play, so Ubisoft could easily be talking about this same sort of DRM again. Until they explicitly state it's a 1-time online activation and that's all, this is going to continue to be a point of confusion till the actual release.

Exactly.

I wonder, what's so hard to understand about the fact, that "initial login" as well as "initial authentication" could mean different things?

With current knowledge I must say, all those online-media who praise Ubisoft for "dropping their controversial DRM" seem to be ignorant and/or lazy.

I understand that you can optionally choose online synchronization, but you're not forced to do so.

My guess is that it will be the same DRM as AC2 ended up as - i.e. login to the server each time you play, synch game and then play.

The fact that the game also has UPlay actions and rewards tends to indicate (to me at least) that there is some form of internet access required.

I only bought AC2 once the DRM scheme was patched to the current level. On the assumption that ACB will implement the same level of DRM, I have preordered it.

wlodi
02-25-2011, 08:42 AM
It's still not clear what "initial login" and "initial online authentication" mean, because there's no definite statement. If they changed this DRM completely to a one time activation on the first run, I'm sure they would say that it's "acitvation", not "initial login".

Please, Ubisoft - can you create some kind of FAQ for the upcoming PC version of ACB? This will help avoid all the confusion.

One gripe I have with Steam is that their remaining time calculation is way off. When I downloaded DA2 demo, it always showed 3 hours and then went down from that, though it actually took me more than 9 hours.

polish online store, one of the best actually.
guy just sent email which said sth like "company reduced for us number of copies so we have to cancel some of yours" marvellous, really.

from what Ive heard on the other online stores there is similiar situation.
stupid thing to do, firstly they should have done a little list of pre-orders, then if the copies they got would be bigger, start to selling again.

and now its like too many people pre-ordered so they cut us off. and those who were fast enough to pre=order sooner will have to pay more. LOL.

Fortunately, the same store offered another edition of the game which doesnt look so bad, so I ordered it immidiately. Better this than nothing.

It seems I've pre-ordered in the same shop as Annjul555 - my pre-ordered was canceled and I've actually ordered this edition of the game four days after the pre-orders started. It's outrageous, really. I don't know the reason it happened, any word on codex edition availability in other countries? It's unacceptable, anyway. The shop offered us a different edition with Ezio figurine, but I would prefer the digital edition, which features all the things from Codex Edition, but it's more expensive than the "physical" Codex Edition - it's crazy! It seems it's a disappointment after disappointment, first the delay, now this happening.

I feel bad for you too, Annjul. That really sucks. I went through similar stuff when my original, pre-order from Best Buy was canceled. Are you sure you don't wanna get the Digital Deluxe version off STEAM? I pre-ordered that, and canceled my existing pre-order at Gamestop when I saw all of the details.

That's the problem, the digital deluxe edition is way too overpriced for our geographical country - we're both from Poland and they enforce the general EU prices for us, which is 49,99€, when the UK price is similar to the price of most games here - 29,99£. Welcome to unfair prices of digital distribution.

You should have gone with GamersGate, they had, and possibly stil have, a deal where you could get the game for just 29€ ($39.96 to be precise). I posted about it, but apparently not many people saw it.

EDIT: It looks like the offer is still standing, current regular price on GG is $50, but with this quiz (http://www.gamersgate.com/competition/assassins-creed-quiz) you can knock another 20% ($10) off the price.

@ MinerVAX09 Well, it's probably your best bet, although if they only heard about the Codex Edition from you, then there's a good chance that you'll have to be downgraded or accept a refund.

Special editions often have problems finding their way to smaller markets, I think that people in my country will only get to see the Codex Edition in pictures. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

It's still not clear what "initial login" and "initial online authentication" mean, because there's no definite statement. If they changed this DRM completely to a one time activation on the first run, I'm sure they would say that it's "acitvation", not "initial login".

Please, Ubisoft - can you create some kind of FAQ for the upcoming PC version of ACB? This will help avoid all the confusion. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

The only reason I can come up with for this information not being freely available this close to release is that they don't want us to know it's a login on every session. Pretty scummy tactic if that's the case, pure speculation of course, but what other reason would they have to not tell us?

What I think initial login means is that the game needs an internet connection to start up BUT wont need a continuous connection (like AC2) while playing the game (except for multiplayer ofcourse) so in a sense you still need an internet connection to play the game but only just to start it up.

That's what we are hoping against. We are hoping that what it means is an internet connection upon installation, but none thereafter.

However, the consensus seems to be what you said, that an internet connection will be needed every time we want to play the game. Which is still unacceptable.

Good news about the DRM. This comes from Gabe Graziani, the community dev for Ubi on the subject of online activation:

"It's one-time, however, if you want to use online features such as Uplay or Multiplayer, then you'll need to log in."

Great that you found a workaround, Annjul- I was just giving an opinion, though.
Play.com was kinda cheap regarding other European retailers; and they offer free shipping too (don't really know if they ship to Poland for free).
See ya at the MP, then xD

For UtherIV:

It's my first time buying on GG, but from what I've gathered, you don't get to just download an ISO so they are kind of like Steam, but not exactly. This is what I've learned:

They have a client which downloads the game, installs it and asks you whether to delete or leave the installation files on the drive so you can backup them for later use. After that point, unlike Steam, you don't need to be running their client while playing.

The backed up installation files can be used to reinstall the game or to install it on a different computer. You will need internet connection on that computer for the installation to start though.

Another difference from Steam is that they have no copy protection of their own, so the games come with whatever DRM the publisher puts in it, but the good thing is that in case you bump into an activation limit, you can email GamersGate support and they'll have it reset.

A friend who buys a lot of games has warned me about one thing, DLCs. I'm not sure if AC:B is going to have any more DLCs so it might not be important in this case, but, in general, he told me that if I wanted DLCs I should stick to retail and, out of all digital stores, Steam. Specifically for GG, he said they were horrible with DLCs for anything other than EA games. I suppose that might be more up to the game publisher than GG and hopefully it will be subject to change, but for now, apparently, that's how things are.

EDIT: As for buying retail from foreign sites, I know that shipping from UK to the Balkans is around 3€ (depending on the store, discounts, etc) and delivery for good stores is less than a week, so if you find a good price and want a physical copy, no reason not to follow that route.

If possible, I would always choose retail- I prefer having the actual disc rether than a couple of maps and characters added (it's not like they're full DLCs, like The Battle of Forli or The Da Vinci Dissapearence).
Unfortunately, I don't have the resources to get it retail, as the only retailer I could get my hands on has it for pre-order +$25 than the actual price.
@Lignjoslav: You already got it on GG? Do they actually discount 20% with that quiz correctly answered? I'm considering if buying it there for the $10-discount, or just going for Steam.
Thanks

Yes, I have already made the purchase and I got the additional discount for the quiz. I've received emails from both GamersGate and Moneybookers (the money transfer service GamersGate uses) confirming that I have been charged exactly $39.96 (~29€) and Brotherhood is listed under MyGames on GamersGate, so now I just have to wait for the release date.

As for the DLCs, I'm with Windrius, there weren't any for AC2 after the PC version was released and I'm guessing it will be similar with Brotherhood. And btw, even Steam isn't always a sure bet, for instance, their version of Mirror's Edge never got the DLC. Hopefully we'll have a better situation once digital distribution gets completely mainstream.

For me, the decision between Steam and GG was easy when I was buying Brotherhood, Steam asked the full European price of 50€, so $40 at GamersGate was actually 40% lower. Had I been restricted to "European" pricing, I wouldn't have pre-ordered the game.

Hey, Lignjoslav, how much does Moneybookers charge you for paying by Credit Card? I think I've seen something about 1.9%, but I'm not sure if this applies to online purchase.
Also, do they charge you monthly? Or you can remove the account?
I'm actually having trouble with choosing PayPal or MB. I've only bought on Steam, and they have their own system for dealing with Credit.
What's more, now, for some weird reason, my 20% off code doesn't work, and the quiz shows exactly the same all the time... =/

As for the code not working, I'd try one more time and check if there are perhaps some excess characters at the beginning or end (end of line characters can sometimes get copy/pasted) if you haven't already. If that doesn't work, there isn't much to do other than contact GamersGate support or, since you haven't got any games on it yet, try opening a second account and doing the quiz again. Good luck.

the codex edition is not available in North America. The closest thing you could get is the digital deluxe version.

For people confused about the DRM used on the PC version:

You may recall, we have stated that after an 'initial login' the game is playable offline - single player mode only of course.

This seems to have confused some people - so here's a short explanation of what it entails.

The initial login is in fact the login to Ubi.com.

By logging in, the player will have access to exclusive PC features, the DLCs present on consoles and Uplay.

Technically speaking, however, once you have installed the game, you never have to go online again.

Hope that clears the issue a little.

I finally pre-ordered AC:B at Steam!
It's got a very high price, (50 euros is a lot since the average monthly pay in Croatia is 800 euros) but I still bought it because I know that I will be heaving fun for months.
I only have one question.
Since I pre-ordered via Steam, I got the Digital Deluxe edition.
I am wondering, will I get the map of Rome in .jpg (or any other picture) format, or will it be something special, like a flash application? Same thing with Altair's Codex.

That's fantastic news. A little bit of common sense winning out maybe? The one time authentication seems to be the route taken by a lot of PC games these days. Good to see Ubisoft following the trend this time, instead of fighting it with AC2's DRM.

I don't know, man. Maybe we'll get something cooler than jpgs. Personally, I don't care.

I can only speak for myself, but I'm not buying the STEAM digital deluxe version because of Altair's codex, the map, and the character info Don't get me wrong-I'll glance at them from time-to-time. I'm buying the DDV because of the Officer AND the Harlequinn, the drachen armor, AND the two singleplayer maps. Oh, and the movie. The soundtrack's a nice touch, as well.

The fact that you can get all of the above in the DDV is why I canceled my Gamestop pre-order with JUST the harlequin.

Furthermore, if it's not too much to ask, I instruct you to read the very first post of this topic which says Standard PC Edition has the core game + DLCs, the Codex Edition contains Game + DLCs + physical goodies and the Digital Deluxe comes with Game + DLCs + digital goodies. Now, if certain things are listed for some editions and not others, that usually means that those things are not to be found in all of the editions.

I would rather worry about being able to play the game. It is tradition that you will not be able to play the game until enough legit buyers step over to the cracked version. By that time you can buy the game for half price.

shhhhhhhhh dont yell/use all caps.

The release date for India should on March 17th or later depending on what day game releases usually are for India. it will likely be that day, AFTER the 17th. so if its a tuesday, itll be march 22, or etc.



And about hte CE content being released for free, this situation would be alot simpler for everyone if they could actually get e PCversion out at the same time as the Xbox and PS versions

Same here, I've had a pre-order of the CE for ever since preordering was possible, and I just received an email stating that it can not be delivered ("the supplier is unable to supply said product"). This S*CKS bigtime. I was already very unhappy that PC owners were forced to wait so long, now my CE order got cancelled. I hope they don't expect me to just swallow this and buy the standard edition instead. Forget it! I've had it with Ubisoft. It's obvious they do everything to p*ss off pc gamers and chase them away. Well guess what? You succeeded. One less!

Guess I'll go play Dragon Age II instead. At least EA/Bioware still value their PC gamers.

im in roughly the same position.

the place i'd ordered the codex edition from sent me an email saying "Ubisoft has just informed us that this version will not be available after all".

to compensate the shop gave me a discount on the auditore edition but im still annoyed at Ubisoft for allowing it to happen so close to the release date.

I plan on buying the standard edition because I have slow broadband speed, it'll take me over 4 days to download the deluxe edition. So my question is, will I be able to get the officer/harlequin characters and exclusive maps later on in the future? Either through Uplay or some kind of unlock? Can moderators answer this? Thanks.

The Da Vinci Disappearance - does not come with the pre-order / CE bonus items on PC - They come on consoles due to age of the release.

So if you want: The Harlequin and Officer multiplayer personas, Ezio’s Helmschmied Drachen armor and two additional single-player maps: Aqueduct and Trajan Market - you need to pre-order / buy the Digital Deluxe or Codex edition of the game.

The Special Edition of the game, comes with The Officer and only one exclusive single player indoor map: The Trajan Market.

At present if you pre-order the game digitally - from participating retailers - such as the Ubi store - you get a free upgrade to the Digital Deluxe version at no extra cost - so loads of extra content for free, but on Friday it will cost £5 more!! [that info is for UK - check you own region Ubistore for details]

Furthermore, if it's not too much to ask, I instruct you to read the very first post of this topic which says Standard PC Edition has the core game + DLCs, the Codex Edition contains Game + DLCs + physical goodies and the Digital Deluxe comes with Game + DLCs + digital goodies. Now, if certain things are listed for some editions and not others, that usually means that those things are not to be found in all of the editions.

Tip for grammar, you don't need to capitilize the first letter of every word. Only the first letter of a sentence or the first letter of a pronoun needs to be capitalized. Plus, it is easier to read.
