The news item even revealed how to unlock the costume, making it one of the few "secrets" we knew how to unlock before we'd even played the game.
Just in case you didn't already know about it, publisher Ubisoft put out a trailer today that gives the curious a brief glimpse of the costume, and reminds viewers that it can be unlocked by finishing every challenge in Brotherhood's VR Training mode.
