Relevant Bumptron:

AC2 Fans may/may not be aware of the new limited codex edition of Brotherhood is available for pre-order.

I'm not usually into pre-order/collector stuff but this looks up my alley. Pre-ordering by Sept 15th also gives you access to the multiplayer beta, but I think that may be consoles only??

Codex Edition Contains:
Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood game
Renaissance Collector Chest
Exclusive Codex
Map of Rome
Multiplayer characters cards
Lineage DVD
Bonus DVD and game soundtrack
2 Exclusive single player maps: Aqua Gear & Trajan Market
2 Multiplayer characters: Harlequin & Officer
Additional bonus content yet to be revealed



Finally, those of you like the look of Assassins Creed 2 concept art etc may be interested in an upcoming interview I am doing with Gilles Beloeil, one of the lead artists on AC2/Brotherhood. It should be up by late August (click funny logo in siggy)

If you'd like to see some of Mr Beloeil's work from AC2, check out his portfolio here:

yes, i have pre-ordered the codex edition.
I'm somewhat worried, however. If they make the multiplayer, will the campaign still get the same treatment ac1 and 2 did? multiplayer just makes more work for the developers, which will mean either a considerably shorter campaign or a rushed, unfulfilling campaign, if im wrong ill give all the posters in this a lump of gold decorated in silk in an easter egg basket..

Since Brotherhood is basically an expansion, I have no doubt the campaign will be much shorter. We already know everything happens in Rome, so that should give you some idea of the length of this game.

but its NOT an expansion! It's a full game, and just because it carries on ezio's story people keep thinking its an expansion. at the moment in england in some places it costs 50 to pre-order higher than any standard game retail by 10, the codex edition at 80. If it's "just an expansion", I wan't at least half the money back ^^

I'd be expecting it to be more akin to AC2.5 than a full new game of equivalent size to either of the first two. We know that Monteriggioni (albeit it with some destructive remodelling) and at least some of Florence are being recycled from AC2. Other than that it seems it will just be based in Rome. Granted that is supposedly the biggest city they have made to date, but I'm still struggling to see that the content level will be on par with AC1 or 2.

Its amusing how you think because there is less single player, the development and infrastructure required to support the multiplayer should be added free.

The solution is easy - If you don't like the release price, just wait a few weeks until it goes down.

Why would they lower the price when people are stupid enough to pay twice the price just for the privilege of having the same game in a fancy box with some cheap crap thrown in?

You must know something we don't, Most places taking pre-orders cant even confirm the release price of the game.

Which is why they've created The Internet Whiner Edition, for an extra 62million British Pounds, you can get a FREE Andrea del Verrochio thrown in



I myself am happy to wait for the prices to go down a bit. MP beta access doesn't interest me.
