In the latest trailer for Assassin's Creed Brotherhood, we're introduced to a new character skin featured in the upcoming game.

The "Footpad" is the quintessential low-level robber from the 16th century, focusing his or her "craft" on unwitting pedestrians. In Brotherhood, the Footpad seems to have added "brutally violent" to his resume.

The trailer also features a glimpse at a special "Codex" edition of Brotherhood, exclusive to Europe. North American players have their own special edition on the way.

Assassin's Creed Brotherhood launches on November 16 in North America and on November 19 in Europe for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Sadly, the PC version has been delayed until 2011.

    I know I have said it before but every time I hear news regarding a Ubisoft product I cant help but to state the first thing that comes to my mind no matter what game it is: I will not be purchasing anything Ubisoft until the shitastic DRM has been removed.
    Its pretty sad because I love (loved) Ubisoft games.

      That's nice. The rest of us will play stable, well ported games that have less reconnect time than most other games have in restarting after a crash.

        I'd rather deal with random crashes (it's a given with PC gaming) then having some fucking company controlling WHEN I can play a game I paid for.

          I was far more annoyed by them not putting the UK version on Steam than I was at the time thing, and I tend to consider a game poor value if I don't feel the urge to play it to completion at least twice. It's really not hard to get in a hundred hours of playtime in the space of a couple of years, and by the time it ends up on Future-GOG your PC will almost certainly be nigh-on incapable of playing the normal version anyway.

          Plus, compatibility simply breaks, and this DRM is actually less likely to be evil than Starforce or SecuROM games, since it doesn't have any tendencies to break optical drives or refuse to install on newer OSes. You should really give AC2 a go (and potentially Brotherhood, but I haven't played it yet obviously so I can't say whether the new features make the SP worthwhile in this one).

            I've already played AC2 and Conviction legally without giving those assholes a dime of my money and plan on playing Brotherhood too. I would much rather buy the game and support them but I refuse as long as the DRM exsists

      You're not alone in those thoughts. Sadly, the people actually willing to boycott them are so few and far between it's a drop in the bucket for Ubi. I just wish more people that were offended by their DRM would have the balls to actually not buy their products, that way it may make a difference.

      I'm in the same boat. I'm also not having a hard time "boycotting" those games since there are a load of other great games to play.

      who cares? i support game devs stopping piracy. its their right to protect their property, and any money they lost from the whiner brat boycott was made up in sales that would of been lost to piracy.

      Its not like DRM even effects 99% of gamers, you people just like to complain
