Assassin's Creed Brotherhood Coming to PC in March

The long-awaited PC edition of Assassin's Creed Brotherhood will finally be released on March 17 in North America, Ubisoft has quietly announced on the open-world murder simulator's official forums.

Assassin's Creed Brotherhood was released for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 back in November 2010. The PC edition was initially expected to launch alongside the console versions, until Ubisoft revealed otherwise in September. Hopefully it'll be one of the PC games Ubisoft tones its DRM down for.

Ubisoft confirmed yesterday that a mysterious, new, "packaged" Assassin's Creed game will be released some time this year. Not a Facebook game then, at least.

    Wonder if they figured out a better(worst) anti piracy system?

        Same here. I'd love to play it on PC with all the extra prettiness and mouse control, but putting up with Ubisofts terrible, terrible DRM isn't worth it.

      On principle, I think it's a shitty way to keep piracy down, but honestly this system only gave me one problem throughout the 30-40 hours I played AC2. There was ONE point where it didn't save my game, and so i lost a bit of progress. Other than that, it was never an issue.

        On principle, it's a shitty way to own a game. The DRM on AC2 and Splinter Cell Conviction is SHIT and there's no reason to expect that it wont be in Brotherhood. It's the epitome of paying for a online-enabled license dressed up like a game, and Ubi's last few PC releases that were actually amazing games are worse because of it.

      I made the mistake of buying AC2 from Ubi. For whatever reason, I installed it but never activated it until a month or two later. Ubi's DRM states that if you don't activate it in a certain amount of time, you have no way to retrieve the key and thus you would have to buy it again.

      I had to resort to hacks and piracy to get a game I bought to run. Never again.
