It may be more Assassin's Creed 2.5 rather than the full blown sequel, but we're still salivating at the prospect of Ezio's second major outing arriving before the end of this year.
One of the big attractions of course is a whole new bunch of multiplayer modes which will come with the game, but even hardcore Assassin's Creed fans (like ourselves) have been pondering how will they work actually work in practice?
Well, wonder no more, as we've secured two fine new movies, the first of which shows exactly how 'Wanted' assassination missions play out in the new game.
In it, you'll discover the saucy looking courtesan skin, how to track down and execute your AI victim and then how to evade fellow assassins for a maximum points score. Looks very intriguing indeed.
The second movie is drawn from the single-player version of Brotherhood and sees the villa Auditore under heavy siege from the Borgia forces.
An excellent opportunity to showcase some of the new gameplay variety in Brotherhood like using cannons against enemy siege towers and how joyriding your horse through cities and towns is well, sheer joy.
