New Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood DLC Announced

Ubisoft have announced that a new set of downloadable content for Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood is on the way. “The Da Vinci Disappearance”, which is due to release in March for $9.99 (800 MS Points), provides both single player and multiplayer content this time around.

Leonardo Da Vinci seems to have gotten himself into some trouble and was kidnapped by the Hermeticists after the fall of the Borgias in Rome. According to the press release, Ezio needs to recover stolen paintings in order to find the whereabouts of his friend before it’s too late. The mission includes two new locations to explore and two new gameplay features which were not detailed.

The DLC  includes one new multiplayer map, four new characters, and two new gameplay modes. Set in Spain’s Albaicin of Granada, the Alhambra map features multi-story gameplay and has both indoor and outdoor settings. The new characters are the Dama Rossa, the Knight, the Marquis, and the Pariah.

The new gameplay modes, Escort and Assassinate, sound like interesting variations of previous game types. In Escort, two teams consisting of four players need to protect a VIP from being assassinated by either side. Assassinate mode is pretty much a ten minute deathmatch with support for up to eight players.

Check out the teaser trailer below. It has some pretty awesome music.

  1. I will have managed to pick this up by then and hopefully finished it in time for this DLC

  2. Nice. 8th March isn’t even far away.

    I completed this a while back, but still have some side missions to do.

  3. A healthy dose of new content. Good stuff!

  4. Finally some new single player content. The new modes and charaters sound good as well

  5. Looks like a nice but of DLC, good content for both single player and multiplayer.

    Just a quick question, do you guys pick up the news tips anymore, I submitted one on this a few hours ago…

  6. Aw sweet! :D

  7. The new Escort-mode sounds like some good fun, as opposed to the awful Capture the Chest rubbish we got some weeks ago. And both the new map and skins looks nice aswell, and ofcourse the singleplayer content, oh and the trophies. Good job Ubi, I’ll be buying this! :)

  8. Excellent – more AC:B can never be a bad thing :)

    Anyone seen any more details on how the new Assassinate mode will work?

    • I’ve been fishing about a bit and found:

      “The difference between Wanted and Assassinate modes is that you must lock your target to receive a contract before killing them.”

      Then I would guess that once you’ve acquired a contract, you’ll have to complete it before getting another via locking.

      So it sounds like less of a complete free-for-all than I’d originally imagined … but in a good way. I wonder what it’ll do to the nutjob roofers?

  9. Trophies?

    Hell yeah!
