Ubisoft firmed up all the details on Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood's PC release today. For starters, they revealed that the previously announced release date was wrong.
Brotherhood will hit the PC in North America on March 22nd. Ubisoft had previously stated it was coming on the 17th. The European release date - March 18th - is the same, though.
The $49.99 standard edition of the game will be available at both retail and through digital stores. It will include the main game as well as all the downloadable content: the Abstergo Project Update 1.0 and 2.0 multiplayer DLC as well as the "Da Vinci Disappearance" add-on announced last week. A Digital Deluxe Edition, priced at $59.99, comes with the following additional content:
Exclusive Single-Player Maps: The Trajan Market & The Aqueduct
The Officer - Death's Finest Ally: Few have seen him. Even fewer have lived to tell about it. Fear is his friend, and Death is his ally.
