Ubisoft has announced the first DLC for Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, “The Da Vinci Disappearance”, which will feature new content for both single player and multiplayer for 800 Microsoft Points ($10 USD) in early March. The DLC will be released for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of Brotherhood.
Ezio Auditore’s friend Leonardo Da Vinci is kidnapped by an underground cult seeking to transform mankind in the single player portion, and Ezio has to track down stolen paintings that will lead him to Da Vinci. This seems to be either a reference to or a winking satire of The Da Vinci Code. The mission promises two new locations and two new “gameplay features.”
The multiplayer content features a new map called “Alhambra”, four new characters, and two new game modes. The new characters include the Dama Rossa, the Knight, the Marquis, and the Pariah. The new “Escort” mode revolves around protecting a VIP target, while “Assassinate” is a ten-minute death-match mode.
