Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood “Da Vinci Disappearance” DLC gets multiplayer trailer

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.

    @sgloomy: your data is saved on their ubisoft servers or something. you'll be picking up where you left off, level-experience-wise. unfortunately, you WILL have to restart all of your challenges again (in order to get the rapid-reload abilities, etc). i accidentally corrupted my save data, while i was so close to repid-reload mute too! that being said, i MAY just pick this up. but how much do you wanna bet the knight's fast walk is going to be as obvious as beard-beard the blacksmith's?

    goddamn it i just got the platinum and after reaching level 50 i never wanted to play the multiplayer again, and now they add the free for all mode i wanted all along, well looks like its time to put some funds in my wallet :D

    This would be awesome, if multiplayer wasn't broken for me since buying brotherhood. Hoping they fix the Internal Service Error issues when they release this.

    I haven't downloaded any DLC map packs for any games for over a year but I think this one will break my streak. The maps in Brotherhood's multiplayer make a way bigger difference then they do in other games. Add to that new characters, modes, and single player content and I'm fairly certain I won't be able to say no.

    Finally, a free for all. every time I play after awhile I just want to attack everything, not just hunt down -one- specific person at a time.

    this sucks. my PS3 died like 2 months ago and i have lost all saved data, which means i'll have to play the whole game again for this and really don't have the time, although it wasn't a particularly long game so maybe i'll try it.
