Ezio’s adventures will continue shortly when The Da Vinci Disappearance DLC add-on for Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood hits Live Marketplace and PSN early next month. The 800 MS Point/$9.99 release will include both single- and multiplayer content, and it’s looking like a fairly substantional expansion that fans should keep an eye out for.
Two new locations and two new gameplay features will be added for the new solo quest, which will put players on the trail of Da Vinci in order to free him from his kidnappers, a cult known as the Hermeticists. The multiplayer content is even beefier with a new map set in Spain, two new modes pitting two teams of four against each other as well as in a free-for-all deathmatch, and four new characters.
The multiplayer addition is the biggest expansion to the award-winning multiplayer yet, including one new map, four new characters and two new game modes. The new multiplayer map, Alhambra, is a lush environment set in Spain’s Albaicin of Granada and provides multileveled indoor and outdoor areas perfect for predators to lurk in the dense crowd for unsuspecting targets. The four new characters will undoubtedly be a huge hit with Assassin’s Creed fans, consisting of the Dama Rossa, the Knight, the Marquis and the Pariah. The two new gameplay modes, Escort and Assassinate, will provide a whole new gameplay experience for Brotherhood players. In Escort mode, two teams of four players compete to protect their VIP target or assassinate the other team’s VIP target. In Assassinate mode six to eight players are pitted against each other deathmatch-style in one ten-minute round.
