Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood - Single-player DLC announced

The Da Vinci Disappearance out next month

Ubisoft's just announced new Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood DLC, The Da Vinci Disappearance.

The add-on, which is planned for release on Xbox 360 and PS3 at the beginning of next month, will cost 800 Microsoft points (£6.85) and adds both single-player and multiplayer content.


"After the fall of the Borgias in Rome, Leonardo Da Vinci is kidnapped by the Hermeticists, an underground cult dedicated to transforming mankind," Ubi's single-player blurb reads.

"Ezio will embark on a relentless quest to recover stolen paintings in order to find Leo before it is too late, discovering two new locations and two new gameplay features along the way."

The multiplayer addition is described as the biggest expansion yet, with one new map, four new characters and two new game modes.

The new multiplayer map, Alhambra, is "a lush environment set in Spain's Albaicin of Granada" and provides "multileveled indoor and outdoor areas perfect for predators to lurk in the dense crowd for unsuspecting targets."

The four new characters include Dama Rossa, the Knight, the Marquis and the Pariah.

The two new gameplay modes are Escort and Assassinate. In Escort mode, two teams of four players compete in this team-based mode where each team must protect their VIP target or assassinate the other team's VIP. In Assassinate mode, six to eight players are pitted against each other deathmatch style in one ten minute round.

The Da Vinci Disappearance DLC also adds ten new Achievements, which for some is worth the money on its own.

We approve. See screenshots and a trailer below.
