First DLC announced for Assassin's Creed: Revelations

Ancestors Character Pack available mid-December

Ubisoft has announced the first DLC for the newly-launched Assassin's Creed: Revelations. The Ancestors Character Pack will add four new characters to the multiplayer world of Assassin's Creed, each bringing their own complement of original weaponry, moves and taunts. The pack doesn't launch until Dec 13, but it, and its as-yet-unannounced followup, are available for preorder now.

The Ancestors Character Pack's new characters are the Privateer (which is like a pirate with a boss), Brigand (a pirate with an aversion to seafaring), Corsair (a pirate with a French accent), and Gladiator (not much like a pirate at all). A hands-on look at the real thing will run you $3.99 or 320 MSP; being as the game itself's only just been released, you should find some way of filling the time between now and Dec 13 easily enough.
