Ubisoft announced today that Ã¢â‚¬Å“The Da Vinci DisappearanceÃ¢â‚¬Â add-on for AssassinÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Creed Brotherhood for the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3 will be available for download in early March on Xbox LIVE for 800 Microsoft Points and PlayStation Network for $9.99.
The Da Vinci Disappearance will include both single-player and multiplayer content for AssassinÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Creed Brotherhood. 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 Leo before it is too late, discovering two new locations and two new gameplay features along the way.
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 SpainÃ¢â‚¬â„¢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 AssassinÃ¢â‚¬â„¢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 teamÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s VIP target. In Assassinate mode six to eight players are pitted against each other deathmatch-style in one ten-minute round.
