New Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood DLC

The Da Vinci Disappearance out in March.

More Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood downloadable content is on the way – but this time you'll have to pay for it.

The Da Vinci Disappearance will launch at the beginning of March on the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live. On Xbox Live, it'll cost 800 Microsoft Points. Ubisoft failed to mention a PSN price - the publisher told us this evening it hasn't decided on it yet.

The DLC includes single-player and multiplayer content. From the official blurb: "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."

On the multiplayer side, the DLC adds one new map, four new characters and two new game modes. Map Alhambra is described as a "lush environment set in Spain's Albaicin of Granada". It features multileveled indoor and outdoor areas "perfect for predators to lurk in the dense crowd for unsuspecting targets".

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

In Escort mode, two teams of four players compete. Each team must protect their VIP target or assassinate the other team's VIP. In Assassinate mode, six to eight players go against each other in one 10 minute deathmatch style round.
