The cinematic trailer for Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, slated to be released on November 16, 2010, is out at E3. For the first time in the franchise history, we will see elements of multiplayer. How the multiplayer fits into the larger narrative remains to be seen, because it makes sense for there to be cooperative multiplayer from a narrative perspective.

I think this trailer is the best one yet. The original game’s cinematic has been dethroned, and the cinematic for Assassin’s Creed II was, well, a little too Renaissance for my tastes. At any rate, you can watch it below:
