“My name is Desmond Miles, and this is my story.”

Forget Altair and Ezio for a minute, Assassin’s Creed has always been about Desmond. With the secrets of a centuries old war locked within his genetic memory, the cocky bartender is at the very epicenter of it all. Without Desmond Miles, Assassin’s Creed simply wouldn’t exist.

It’s fitting then that as the series has progressed, Desmond has played a bigger and bigger role in the gameplay itself. Little more than a participant of interactive cut-scenes in the first game, in Brotherhood he’s taking centre stage for entire levels.

Based on the opening couple of hours we sampled recently, we’re gonna be seeing a lot more of the hoodied secret assassin. But before that, Brotherhood has to reacquaint us with a whole bunch of mechanics, a load of backstory, and a certain florally-accented Italian chap.
