Original Soundtrack to be released November 16 on iTunes

Los Angeles, CA - October 27, 2010 - BAFTA award-winning composer Jesper Kyd has
composed an original music soundtrack for Ubisoft®'s Assassin's Creed Brotherhood,
the next iteration of the critically acclaimed, multi-million selling video game
franchise. Assassin's Creed Brotherhood is inspired by historical events during
the occupation of Rome by The Borgias in 1503. Kyd's new music score for Brotherhood
draws influence and authentic instrumentation from this Renaissance period, immersing
players in Ezio's adventures to liberate Rome from a corrupt and tyrant regime.
The Assassin's Creed Brotherhood Original Soundtrack will be available for digital
download from iTunes on November 16, 2010, to coincide with the North American release
of the game on Microsoft Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system and the Sony
PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system.

"Researching the history of the Borgia Family it became clear early on that Assassin's
Creed Brotherhood would require a very dark score in order to match the Borgias'
aspirations to become the rulers of Italy. The music reflects the compelling story
of Ezio as a Master Assassin going up against the Borgias," said Kyd.

Kyd's globally acclaimed score for Assassin's Creed® 2 continues to receive top
honors for Best Original Music including the Gold Spirit Awards, Hollywood Music
In Media Awards, GameSpot Readers' Choice, GameSpy Editors' Choice, Game Audio
Network Guild Awards as well as recognition from the British Academy of Film and
Television Arts, Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences, International Film Music
Critics Association, Golden Joystick Awards and Spike TV VGAs.

In Assassin's Creed Brotherhood the critically acclaimed single player experience
of Assassin's Creed is back and better than ever as Ezio returns in an enduring
struggle against the powerful Templar Order. Now a legendary Master Assassin, he
must journey to Rome, center of power, greed and corruption to strike at the heart
of the enemy. Defeating the corrupt tyrants entrenched there will require not only
strength, but leadership, as Ezio commands an entire Brotherhood that will rally
to his side. Only by working together can the Assassins defeat their mortal enemies.
Assassin's Creed Brotherhood is also the first time the franchise has featured a
multiplayer gameplay experience, which has already received numerous industry awards.

Assassin's Creed Brotherhood is a worldwide production effort led by the Ubisoft
Montreal development studio in collaboration with Ubisoft studios in Singapore,
Bucharest, Québec City and Annecy. Assassin's Creed Brotherhood will ship on November
16, 2010 for the Microsoft Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system and the
Sony PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system. For more information about Assassin's
