New Multiplayer Trailer For Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood DLC

by on March 3, 2011

Ubisoft have today shown off a new trailer which covers their latest update for Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, the forthcoming Da Vinci Disappearance downloadable add-on. Whilst the pack will include single player story-based missions and extras, this video only concentrates on the multiplayer additions. Included in the pack will be a new map – Alhambra – which is set in Granada, Spain and is a multi-level environment many outdoor areas full of civilians, designed to allow for assassin’s to blend into crowds and stealthily strike at their targets.

The four new characters also included are: the Dama Rossa, the Knight, the Marquis and the Pariah. And on top of that there will be two new gameplay modes; Escort and Assassinate. Escort mode involves two teams of four, struggling to protect their VIP target, whilst also trying to assassinate the other team’s VIP target. In the other new mode, Assassinate, between six and eight players will face off against each other in a death-match style game, but with only one ten minute round – and most importantly – no specific contracts to follow, making this mode the first out and out free-for-all mode featured in the game.

We also can’t wait to find out what single player extras the team have in store for players. We don’t have any concrete details yet, but Ubisoft summed up the pack as follows:

“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.”

A boxed version, bundled with the full game – entitled the Da Vinci Edition – will also be released on March 25th. Check out our review of the full game here for more details.
