Assassin's Creed Brotherhood PC - Multi player?

Just wondering if anyone from Pakistan has played online mode of AC Brotherhood PC? Not looking for a multi player crack, I am rather interested in the overall experience (online game performance using local ISPs, servers availability etc.) so that I can have a better idea whether or not to purchase this game.

And if anyone could point me to best option available locally for game purchase. Steam is an option but I get such low transfer rate at Steam that I wouldn't give it a second thought for a game of such a large size as this. If Steam is my only option, can the game be actually downloaded from somewhere else and only bought at Steam? I will get in touch with Steam Support on this too if it turns out to be my only option. Just asking here in a hope that maybe someone has already tried something like this.

Thanks.

Thanks for your response. I think I would be able to purchase it at STEAM and still download it from somewhere else. Not official confirmation but found a similar thread somewhere else where a user has tried this.
