Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood DLC launches March 8

Have you bought up every business in Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood's version of Rome? Found every flag? Solved every Cluster? Dominated in multiplayer? Then we've got some good news: more AssBro is on the way March 8, when the first DLC expansion – titled The Da Vinci Disappearance – hits Xbox Live and PSN with a new single-player storyline, new Achievements/Trophies and a handful of add-ons for multiplayer.


Selling for 800 Microsoft Points or $9.99 on PSN, Disappearance picks up more or less where Brotherhood's story leaves off, and begins with Leonardo Da Vinci's kidnapping at the hands of a shadowy cult called the Hermeticists. Naturally, this obligates Ezio to set out in search of his old friend, recovering stolent paintings and visiting new places along the way.

 

If the multiplayer additions are any indication, those new places will probably take Ezio to Spain, seeing as Granada's famous Alhambra fortress will appear as a new multiplayer map. Also new are two game modes: Escort, in which two teams compete to protect or assassinate a VIP, and Assassinate, which appears to be a straight-up, six-to-eight-player deathmatch. Finally, four new characters are joining the roster: the Pariah, the Dama Rossa, the Marquis and the Knight, all pictured below.

 

Brotherhood was a pretty fantastic game, so more of it is definitely a good thing – especially if it involves more Leonardo, who barely played a role in the game's "main" storyline. And even if the new missions aren't much better than Assassin's Creed II's so-so add-ons, the multiplayer additions alone could make this worth the download. Expect to see more details in the coming weeks as we draw closer to its near-imminent release.

    Now, I am looking forward to this. I'm almost 100% sync in the single player (getting 100% sync on some of the memories is a pain) and I'm only level 16 on the multiplayer so the new content is welcome, but for the love o' God Ubi, just let me carry around long weapons >.<

    I couldn't give two shits about this release after hearing of a new AC next year.......you think they would learn from Guitar Hero. Sad really....I used to love AC but now I'm bored of it.

    The new characters look pretty cool. I got 100% in the single-player so it'll be nice to have more missions!

    I loved Brotherhood, but the only reason my friends and I haven't been playing the multiplayer is that it's so slow!!! I have a bad connection, but my other friends that don't still take a long time to find matches. I don't know if they released a patch or anything, but it took my friend and I almost an hour to find a good host.

    I adored the multiplayer in Assassin's Creed and anything that adds to the experience is a welcome addition. Plus Ubisoft won some goodwill points with the two Animus Project updates. Wow, the captcha is using Greek characters. What.

    These skins look better than the Mercenary, that's for sure. Might be buying this - anything to get me back on AssBro. And the trophies wouldn't hurt either...
