Ubisoft must be feeling festive, because on 14th December it will release a free lump of Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood DLC on both PS3 and Xbox 360.
Dubbed the Animus Project 1.0, the add-on twists the existing Alliance multiplayer mode into Advanced Alliance. This is in addition to the original mode.
Advanced Alliance will be more challenging - something to do with target identification and engagement - and be playable by three teams of two players each.
This mode's new map, Mont Saint Michel - narrow streets, bell tower, rocky island - makes for the perfect killing playground.
Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood was released earlier this month. It's one of the best games this year, we reckon - and that's saying something.
