Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood Interview: Jean-Francois Boivin Talks ACB's Brotherhood Mechanics

While at Ubisoft's post-E3 showcase last week, we caught up with Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood's Associate Producer, Jean-Francois Boivin, to talk all things Assassin's Creed in a fairly lengthy interview.

In what is the first part of a three part interview over this weekend, we talk to Boivin about Brotherhood's brotherhood mechanics and how much of a part they play in the sequel. We touch upon how much of a role it plays in the story, how they balanced the "BAM" (Brotherhood Assassin Move) system, how you will nurture your assassins and whether the pesky varmints are dispensable *gulp*

Part two and part three incidentally will touch upon the game's multiplayer and single player respectively, so keep your eyes peeled Saturday and Sunday for them.

In order to brush up on Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood and what they're doing with the franchise this year, make sure you read our E3 preview.

"Right amount of love, nourishment..."
What is this? Digimon World: Brotherhood? Do I have to take him to the bathroom every half hour?

JK, this game is going to be EPIC.

I would honestly prefer that they extended the overall length of the game rather than adding on multiplayer. That doesn't mean I will enjoy the game any less and that I won't give the multiplayer a shot. That's just my two cents.

The first step to building a better Ubisoft:

Use a guy that can actually survive an interview and doesn't look like he was forced to wake up early after doing loads of cocaine the following night.

I cannot wait for this game. I wonder if they're gonna have an achievement where you have to get through the game without having any of your assassins die.

@17. You're on an ACHIEVEMENT site. We like getting all of the achievements. If you want more people like that, this is probably the wrong site for you.

On topic: Psyched. Completely and unconditionally psyched for this game. I got into the first AC late on, loved it. Got the second AC late on and loved it still. However this is a first day release for me. Brilliant games ;D. Just hope the ending doesn't suck..

I was hoping for a co-op style experience. I wanted to sneak through the city with a couple friends, and kill targets together.

I'm still excited to play this game though. I really enjoy AC
