    as far as I understand this is just an expansion for the Assassins creed II?

    woohoo, can't wait!

    will this have Ubisoft's crappy DRM? internet connection isn't in minimal requirements, so let's hope they've learnt their lesson.

    Pretty sure they removed it from AC2 so I can't imagine they'll force it for the new game.

    It is a continuation of the story, but not a expansion AFAIK. It is a standalone game, you don't need AC2 to play it.

    They patched Assassin's Creed II now anyway, the DRM required now is just internet connection when you start the game (like Steam basically). So I can only imagine Brotherhood is the same.

    I wrote badly; is the game as long, complete as Ass.Cr.II? or just a mini-pack?

    ~15 hours is what they write on internet.

    The caption to the picture says it'll be released on March 22nd, but the text says March 18th for UK and Europe... Just wondered which one I should look forward to.

    Read the second line of the article.
    (I'll update it to make it clearer.)

    Longer IIRC. Fantastic game, liked it more than ACII.

    i thought with AC2, you needed to spend £4 on Steam to have the Ubisoft DRM removed.

    so does Steam version (Deluxe edition?) still have the Ubisoft DRM launcher?

    Looking forward to it, AC2 was an amazing game.

    They've dropped the always online DRM for this one, you just need to sign in every so often with this one (I think)...

    It's a stand alone game, but they probably should have just made an expansion instead.

    Will this be the last in the series of the AC games?
