Kill some time with Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood multiplayer footage

How is it possible to make a harlequin seem tough? The right combination of rock music, self-assured strutting, parkour, and stabbity, according to this trailer for Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood's multiplayer mode. We thought it was odd that the Harlequin character featured so heavily in this video, since it's a GameStop pre-order exclusive -- and then the GameStop ad kicked in at the end. Oh.

Promotional consideration aside, the trailer is a very stylish look at the game's multiplayer, which tasks players with spotting assassination targets (other players) in crowds and then successfully ending them using each character's unique abilities. There are also new character renders and a few new screens, which you can find by sneaking up on our gallery very quietly.%Gallery-98091%
