Always good for worthwhile DLC, the latest installment in the Assassin's Creed saga gets its biggest add-on yet in the form of the “Da Vinci Disappearance” expansion. First previewed back in January, the DLC's single-player component pretty much does what it says on the tin – where in the world is Leonardo Da Vinci? – but the new trailer focuses on the pack's multiplayer aspects, which for many are Brotherhood's big draw card.

The lush indoor and outdoor areas of the pack's new multiplayer location, Alhambra, are shown off in rich daytime and stealth-heavy moonlit matches within the trailer. There's also a look at four new character classes: leather-clad Dama Rossa (including the “swaying ass-cam” shot obligatory for revealing new female characters), lumbering Knight, gentleman-scoundrel Marquis and masked Pariah, who presumably doesn't get picked first for many team matches.

Rounding out the pack's multiplayer additions are two new multiplayer mission types, one heavily structured and the other very much the opposite: “Escort” adds everyone's favorite single-player mission type to the multiplayer roster, whereas “Assassinate” is the contract-free, kill-happy free-for-all that Brotherhood's multiplayer mode virtually demands.
“The Da Vinci Disappearance” debuts on March 8 for Xbox 360, expanding onto PlayStation Network a day later. Does this trailer whet your appetite? Let's hear your thoughts.
