I really love the multiplayer - but its sits waiting for abstergo agents for 20+ mins. Does anyone play this online? Add me if you do, I love it and I play like it should be played. Not like a retard. Find me at XBL : synchr0nicity

Added you.

There's a somewhat uncommon issue of "glitched" lobbies, sometimes. If you sit at the blueish tinted screen (not where it shows a picture of the map), and the number at the bottom goes from a fraction, to full, and varies without changing the background, then it's glitched. You should just back out and try again. You may run into the same lobby, just repeat.

Another notable symptom of a glitched lobby is that the computerized female voice doesn't say anything at all after a minute or two. It should, at the very least, say something like "Searching for Abstergo Agents." every minute or so.

There was a point where I was just waiting for a match while surfing the web, and after 2 hours it still hadn't gotten me into a game. A bit ridiculous.

I'd love to play this with you guys. I have to give Manhunt more of a chance, when I was playing I usually played Wanted. Gotta practice practice practice. I'll throw you all a friend request.

We should resurrect the game night idea. Fill a lobby. I found it harder to travel in a party to find a match anyways.

the wait times in lobbies are so bad! I've been waiting for 15 minutes and the game it put me in had 7 seconds left. 7! if anybody is on right now and wants to get a group going to actually play some add me up.

A new update for the game is out.

I haven't noticed any difference in MP. Now at lvl49 only around 20k more exp to go.

Anyone still play? I finally hit lvl50 the other day.

Animus 2.0 is now out with a new map (Pienza) and a new game mode (chest capture) to play.
I haven't played much of either the new map or mode, but from what I have I enjoy the map. I got into a chest game with like 1min left so I didn't get a feel for it.

I still haven't brought myself to play the multiplayer yet. I'm not sure why, I did the training but I got caught up with Enslaved, Batman: AA and soon Mass Effect 2. I have a feeling though that if I don't play now it's only going to get harder and harder to find full matches...

I'll throw you a friend request, Bootleg. I haven't played the game much at all lately, just haven't found any interest. I'll probably get back into it soon.

I really wish there was a way to smack someone who decides to sprint up and get 100 points on my contract as I'm stalking him. I usually walk up to them and throw a smokebomb (Which has led to them getting assassinated a few times, which is hilarious), but it's just not satisfying enough. What joy it'd be if I could just slap em in the face.

Just started playing today, got up to sequence 3 in single player, and liking it better than AC2 so far, which is probably one of my top 5 360 games. Also played a few multiplayer matches and really liked it, hopefully I can finish the single player by this friday so I can play multiplayer all weekend.

New DLC coming soon! Single player AND multiplayer!

Ubisoft has announced a new, massive-sounding DLC pack for its well-received manhunter, Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood. The pack, titled "The Da Vinci Disappearance," is centered around just that -- following the events of the single-player storyline, Ezio's helpful, crafty companion Leonardo Da Vinci is kidnapped by the cult of the Hermeticists, who hope to pick his brain to bend the world to their seedy will. Ezio will have to locate his stolen painting across two new areas while exercising two new, undetailed "gameplay features" in order to emancipate the renowned inventor from his captors.

The DLC also includes a metric ton of content for the title's multiplayer component, including four new characters: The Dama Rossa, the Knight, the Marquis and the Pariah. The game's roster of maps will be expanded with "Alhambra," a lush quarter of a Spanish city, providing hunters and huntees with a multileveled indoor and outdoor environment to slink through. Also, two new modes will be added: Escort, where two teams of four players must assassinate the opposing team's VIP while protecting their own; and Assassinate, a straightforward, ten minute round of Deathmatch. See ya, subtlety!

The pack will be released at the "beginning of March 2011," and will run shoppers 800 Microsoft Points on Xbox 360 and the equivalent $9.99 on PS3. Check out some screens of the new map and its violent inhabitants in the gallery below, or check out the trailer after the jump for a preview of the new single-player missions!

While the DLC sounds interesting (that seems like an acceptable amount of content for $10), I've lost interest in the game and the DLC won't renew it...

I just can't put up with entire lobbies using Templar Vision to make up for how terrible their perception and attention span are. (this is post-40's in level, at least)

beat the single player, the end level environment was pretty. and that other thing.



man, how do people get 3500 points in multiplayer!! i get like 4 kills a match and always miss my target.

this one time i was on a rope and saw my pursuer she came on the rope and i was waiting for a defense attack and she just walked through me killing me. in other chase. the character dropepd into hay, so did i, i waited for her to pop out and before i could assassinate i got hit by a smoke bomb and stunned. i was in the hay dammit.

some people are good at flanking but even when i see it i cant stop it. this guy dropped right in front of me and before the game even gave me the option to stun i was killed by him.

this compass doesn't like me. it was fully blue and telling me my target was in range, couldn't find her, when i did it was a civilian and my target was on the other side of the wall.

another time my pursuer was chasing me and JUMPED IN FRONT of me, i smile and before i could do anything boom he did a 180 and instakilled me.

i wish more poeple played and i wish i could play better, i so far i haven't done better than 7th.

Well timesplitt, I think you just summarized up the problems with AssCreed's MP. It is great, really innovative, but a good portion of the difficulty is fighting against the game system and not, unfortunately, other players skill.

But a more useful response.... Smoke Bomb > Attacker > Defender.

So on the DLC with the Da Vinci missions, after you beat them, does it drop you back in Rome so you can finish up any side quests left over, or does the game lock you out of Rome?
