Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood, now with more plot

All the Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood coverage up to this point has been pretty focused on the multiplayer, a first for the stab-happy series, but there’s also a story in there, as evidenced by this latest trailer.

The 15-hour single player campaign follows an older, deadlier, and decidedly hairier Ezio Auditore as he attempts to reorganize his fellow assassins to fight against the corrupt Knights Templars in Rome. The game picks up right where Assassin’s Creed II left off, with players attempting to rebuild and recruit fellow Hashshashin. You will be able to customize and control your own “Brotherhood” of badassery, eventually sending them out on assassination missions. You can also summon them to help you out of a tight spot, that is if they’re not busy deep sixing someone you sent them after.
