AC Brotherhood coming to PC March 22

Assassin's Creed Brotherhood finally has a PC release date, along with system specifications. Ubisoft sent word in a press release that the PC version will launch in North America on March 22, for all your stabby needs. This is a change from the previously announced March 17 date, which was a Thursday.

The standard release includes the game, both of the free multiplayer updates that came to consoles, and the recently announced Da Vinci Disappearance DLC for $49.99. It's available in both retail and digital formats. The Digital Deluxe edition, on the other hand, is only available digitally, but throws in two more multi-player characters, two single-player maps, one extra skin, and "additional multimedia content" for $59.99.

The announcement also included a new trailer, some PC screens, and the full system specs. Ubisoft also confirmed to Joystiq that the game will ditch the unpopular always-on DRM, instead opting for an initial log-in at the start.

Check the specs out after the break.
