Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood slices retail Nov. 16

E3 2010: Ezio's Roman adventure hits PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 this fall; creative director steps away from the franchise.

LOS ANGELES--Ubisoft today revealed a release date for its upcoming stealth action game Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood. A trailer (embedded below) for the Mediterranean stalking title appeared today and revealed the game has a November 16 date with retail.

The Assassin's Creed series welcomes multiplayer this fall.
The game's E3 trailer, a nearly three-minute CGI tease, provides a cinematic glimpse into what gamers can expect this fall. The clip shows Ezio brazenly walking into an assassination attempt, slaying waves of enemies and sporting slightly more facial hair than in previous entries.

A sequel to last year's Assassin's Creed 2, Brotherhood is a stand-alone product and the first Assassin's Creed game to incorporate a multiplayer component. In the title, players reprise their role as Ezio and travel in this sanguineous adventure to 1503 Rome, where the Templar order is again irking Ezio.

In other Assassin's Creed news, Patrice Desilets, creative director of the Assassin's Creed series, who has been with franchise development house Ubisoft Montreal since its inception, has left the studio according to a Game Informer report. According to a statement provided to the GameStop-owned magazine, Desilets "has decided to take a creative break from the industry and is no longer working on Assassin's Creed Brotherhood."

Ubisoft has yet to clarify how the game's multiplayer will work, but with Ubisoft's E3 2010 press conference scheduled for 5 p.m. PDT today, eager fans will likely soon get some answers.

I love both AC games, and this one looks epic as well, but I think I'm gonna see how this plays itself out before I do any pre-ordering. I'm not sure if I would like a multiplayer AC game, I don't play anything multiplayer now and somebody else called it by saying they could have done without the gamestop ad at the end. That commercial at the end takes away from the trailer's greatness. Well back to E3 I go. Vae Victus!

Great trailer but as always i will wait for the review,AC2 was great hope this one does better. Looks like having back up is the way to go this time round kudos :).

After actually reading the text, I can't believe Patrice Desilets left the studio. He was so funny and smart when they were showing AC2. Oh and why? His payment has got to be large and Ubi Montreal is one of the most prestigious teams in the world.

Thanks but no thanks Ubi think I am going to pass on this one, AC2, DLC and any other one.

@73X Now? You can have games like this, of course if you consider sick ass CGI programs games... Just look how far technology goes. My grandma can't recognize this as a CGI! Instead she thinks this is real world act! (She's 81 year old btw)

This game came out in half the time of ACII, so hopefully they didn't rush it out. I like the idea that you can work as a group with multiplayer too. Definitely going to watch this game closely and probably buy it later.

Given the amount of development time between ACI and ACII, I'm a little nervous about seeing another iteration of AC already, but if it's anything like the previous titles I'll just hand my debit card over to Ubisoft right now....

It's exciting to see a new AC game and all, but I'm worried that it may be coming out too soon. There was a 2 year gap between the release of the first and second AC, and the third one will come out only a year after AC2. It makes me wonder whether they are rushing development.

Am I the only one worried about this? I mean, this is a pretty heavy story, and I wonder how this will now be different.
