Ubisoft: 'People want more Assassin's Creed'

'But we don't want to take anyone for granted' with Brotherhood, says publisher

Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood is good news for gamers because "people want more" of the time-skipping action series, says Ubisoft Montreal designer, Patrick Plourde.

Speaking in a recent interview (read part one now), the Brotherhood designer said that although the company's looking to satisfy demand with a 2010 spin-off, "we don't want to take anyone for granted".

He said: "I think people want more of Assassin's Creed so, so far so good. We don't want to take anyone for granted so we've already put in a lot of effort into making sure we bring novelty, improvements, an entirely new storyline and a multiplayer element that is a unique and fresh experience for players."

The designer argued that Brotherhood's new features - including the introduction of a multiplayer mode - could even lure new players to the Assassin's Creed series.

"People that were curious about Assassin's Creed but were hoping for multiplayer before but it wasn't there are probably going to be curious and want to try it," he said.

"The same goes with the storyline because as we add more episodes in our brand more and more people are learning about the franchise and will say okay this is getting into a lineage, I should go back and play the first one, second one and then this."

In the same interview Plourde told CVG that Brotherhood 'is Assassin's Creed 3 in terms of scope'.

Ubisoft put out a brand new Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood trailer (and a release date) last week.
