Do you remember that "information dump" Jeremy said that Ubisoft was hinting at last week?  Even if you don't, Ubisoft has delivered.  We now have the first details for Assassin's Creed Brotherhood.  

It contains over 15 hours of single-player gameplay.  As Ezio, players will recruit and train young assassins, deploy them across the city, and even call on them to work with you to complete objective.  There's even multiplayer.  Here's the scoop:

"And for the first time, Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood offers a never-before-seen multiplayer layer. Players can help the Templars by using Abstergo to train in the art of Assassination to eliminate the Assassins once and for all. Players can choose from a wide range of unique characters, each with their own signature weapons and assassination techniques, and match their skills against other players from all over the world in different game modes."

Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood is scheduled for a Holiday 2010 release but will receive a "world-exclusive first look" in the July issue of PlayStation: The Official Magazine.
