By Patrick Garratt, Thursday, 17 February 2011 17:06 GMT

Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood’s next DLC pack, The Da Vinci Disappearance, is to add new campaign elements, a new multiplayer map, new characters and more.


Animus Project 1.0 added multiplayer map Mont Saint-Michel and Advanced Alliance mode in December 2010.

Animus Project 2.0 added multiplayer map Pienza and Chest Capture mode in January.

Full game released in November 2010.

Has shipped 6.5 million units so far.

It’s for 360 and PS3, and will cost 800MSP.

The Da Vinci Disappearance will include both single-player and multiplayer content.

After the fall of the Borgias in Rome, Leonardo Da Vinci is kidnapped by the Hermeticists, an underground cult dedicated to transforming mankind; Ezio will embark on a “relentless quest” to recover stolen paintings in order to find the inventor, discovering two new locations and “two new gameplay features” along the way.

The multiplayer content includes a new map, four new characters and two new game modes.

The new map, Alhambra, is a “lush environment” set in Spain’s Albaicin of Granada, and provides multileveled indoor and outdoor areas.

The new characters are Dama Rossa, the Knight, the Marquis and the Pariah.

The two new gameplay modes are Escort and Assassinate: in Escort mode, two teams of four players compete to both protect their own VIP target or assassinate the other team’s charge; in Assassinate mode, 6-8 players are pitted against each other deathmatch style in ten minute rounds.

Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood released in November last year and has shipped 6.5 million units thus far.
