Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood trailer 'reveals' Raiden costume; we do it one better

Assassin's Creed and Metal Gear have had an unusual cross-promotional relationship for a while now, what with Altair's hooded robe and Leap of Faith showing up in Metal Gear Solid 4 and MGS: Peace Walker, respectively. So when a "rumor" that Raiden's robot exoskeleton from MGS4 would appear in Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood turned out to be true, we weren't the least bit surprised. The news item even revealed how to unlock the costume, making it one of the few "secrets" we knew how to unlock before we'd even played the game.

Just in case you didn't already know about it, publisher Ubisoft put out a trailer today that gives the curious a brief glimpse of the costume, and reminds viewers that it can be unlocked by finishing every challenge in Brotherhood's VR Training mode.

While that's an elegant video and all, it's more than a little strange to "tease" something that's already common knowledge (among people who know how to look up cheats and secrets on the internet, anyway). But if you haven't already unlocked it for yourself and would like to get a better look at Ezio's high-heeled robot suit – which shows up in cutscenes as well as gameplay – we've put together our own video to give you a somewhat clearer look at what to expect:

    @Shane1403: Just bronze.

    to get the costume do u have to get gold medals in all of them or just bronze?

    Have you played Konami today?

    I think it's great that both Ubisoft and Kojima allowing Easter eggs like this and Altair's robes on Snake in MGS:4. I hope more companies do this also.

    And also did anyone notice the cardboard box when Ezio first meets leonardo?
  • Teegro - December 8, 2010 12:28 p.m.

    Age gate is pointless. Doesn't matter when you were actually born as you can just lie about the year so why bother at all?
  • Eaxis - December 8, 2010 11:17 a.m.

    Scratch that, it was just Internet explorers fault.
  • Eaxis - December 8, 2010 11:14 a.m.

    I hear the audio but there's no video.

    @jmcgrotty No, it doesn't works perfectly, it messes up when you try to move the time line or when it reaches an unloaded part of the video, a few other issues too that many others have experienced. In fact, just now as I watched this video the time line bar thing didn't even move.

    Kind of expecting Kojima to pop up at the end and go "Did you rike it?"
  • jmcgrotty - December 8, 2010 7:35 a.m.

    Don't waste so much time implementing a new video player. The old one literally works perfectly fine and just as well as the new one. No reasonable person has any basis to whine.
  • tareq - December 8, 2010 7:29 a.m.

    Its cool and all but I still won't buy this game
  • G0D - December 8, 2010 2:21 a.m.

    now if i could just cut watermelons...
  • HankVenture - December 8, 2010 2:11 a.m.

    I wants
  • Shaw49 - December 8, 2010 2:04 a.m.

    Wasn't there another sorta easter egg with a cardboard box when you first meet Leonardo Da'vinci?
  • GamesRadarTylerWilde - December 8, 2010 1:57 a.m.

    @FourassedGump We are still in the process of fully integrating our new player. Currently, it doesn't allow us to age gate videos, and the ESRB requires that we do so with M rated games. The new player will likely be fully up and running within the next few weeks, and you'll never have to see the old player again.
  • FourassedGump - December 8, 2010 1:46 a.m.

    What's with the old video player! I thought you guys stopped using that.
