London, UK – December 13, 2011 – Today, Ubisoft® debuts The Ancestors Character Pack, all-new downloadable content for Assassin’s Creed Revelations for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and for PCs. This pack will be available on the PlayStation®Network for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system from tomorrow, December 14. The Ancestors Character Pack is available for the suggested downloadable price of 320 Microsoft Points on Xbox LIVE® and £3.19 for PCs and on PlayStation Network.

Ancestors Character pack extends the Assassin’s Creed Revelations experience with features that include:

· New multiplayer characters: the swashbuckling Privateer, the devious siren Corsair, the battle-tested Brigand and the bloodthirsty Gladiator;

· Personalized taunts, weapons and stylized assassination moves;

· New achievements and trophies to earn;

· Multiplayer customization items.

In Assassin’s Creed Revelations, master assassin Ezio Auditore walks in the footsteps of his legendary mentor, Altaïr, on a journey of discovery and revelation. It is a perilous path – one that will take Ezio to Constantinople, the heart of the Ottoman Empire, where a growing army of Templars threatens to destabilize the region.

In addition to Ezio’s award-winning story, the acclaimed online multiplayer experience returns, refined and expanded, with more modes, more maps and more characters that allow players to test their assassin skills against others from around the world. The latest chapter in the Assassin’s Creed saga also includes revolutionary gameplay, allowing players to manipulate the construct of Desmond’s memories and the Animus to decipher the mysteries of his past and gain insight into the future.

Supreme, if you would reread my post, it was refering to being kind & polite - not rude.

There are NICE ways to mention what you want, there are incredibly rude, nasty ways to do it.

Alot of what I see going on are sniveling, spoiled, ungrateful attitudes that bark out commands & demand they be catered to with utter perfection.

If I were Ubi, I'd get peeved at that crap & just go for the $$ route too - who wants to please people that are rude & snapping out orders for them to obey with their threats?

There's a huge difference in the 2 approaches.

I said Nothing on the Patch thread bcuz those people have something broken for them, but this is an OFFERING of added content they worked on.
Much different.

Just so your aware, the game has been release for a month on some platforms.

Some games have DLC released much sooner, so I think your anger may be misdirected.

If you have wishes for DLC I suggest you post them in the deadicated feedback threads on the subject so they aren't lost http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I don't get why people are getting so upset about extra characters being released for a few dollars.

ACB was released with only 9 characters available before DLC. ACR was released with 13 (counting Courtesan, not including Crusader, Jester or Doctor). They gave us more than they needed to with the game, and they are providing an opportunity to get even more characters. Including all the pre-order characters, this DLC matches up the number of characters with ACB after 2 DLC packs.

Stop complaining. They have given us more for our money than they did with ACB. That is not greed, it's good business.

A multi-player character pack!? How horribly exciting! Lets all smile and say thank you!

But seriously. I don't see the point in these things. Making a big deal out of 4 new characters? Seriously?

Wouldn't it have been less of a hassle to put them in the original disc? If Ubisoft's argument to that is "We didn't have enough time!", well, if you are releasing a game before everything you intend to be in it isn't IT SHOULDN'T BE RELEASED.

I don't care about the complainers, the new MP characters look awesome! I think I already found two of my new favorite characters. The customization options actually look cool and much more detailed than most of the regular characters. And finally, female characters that I can customize to look more practical (she has pants on - progress!). The Gladiator looked boring in the trailer, too much like a copy of the Knight, but after checking out his alternative costumes, I really like him. Some of these characters are at least a bit more unique than most of the standard characters in ACR. Thanks, Ubi. Now I just hope we'll get some new maps soon. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

First off! Why couldnt they just put these characters in the game at first?? I mean the girls look pretty much the same as the other ones, the Gladiator looks like the Knight or Crusader, and the other ****** just looks boring.
2.Why do they still have the same kill animations as the other ones?? same ol boring finish moves or counters!! LAME!!
3.Why is this out so soon?? CUZ this game is BROKEN and they wanna try and keep whats left out there playing this game. Why are you charging for this?? its not some MONSTER DLC? just a small charater pack! I dont mind the price cuz its low enough, but its just another thing to squeeze more money out of us!! Its dif if it came with Night Maps or 1 New map and these characters, but this is really lame and shouldnt even be a DLC. The main charaters now are lame and boring to begin with! and now just adding on new charaters who look almost the same with the same kill animations milking more money out of us!! =FAIL

On PSN it says it cost $3.99, but in this link it says its free, does anyone know why?

EDIT: Never mind they changed it to $3.99, but when I original posted this it said that the DLC was free. Also, based on the format of the link, we are getting 2 more DLC, one is a map pack, and one is unknown.

Well this is wonderful, but i entered the competition, where the top 100 would get the DLC for free.
I ended up in the top 100, and i still have nothing. No email, no notice, nothing. And i played today with people who do already have the new characters.

So i'd like to know what's going on with the competition and PC. Ubi? Mods? Anyone?

So with regards to concerns about being seperated, that is illogical, as these are just personas. You have it, you play as them, you don't have it, you don't play as them. There's no reason why people who have and don't have them would be seperated. And by what i saw today, it's totally untrue to say so.
When the map DLC comes out, that's when we'll all get seperated.

Emails will be going out shortly, if you are in the top 100. Please ensure you have the correct email address in Uplay.

Auduril79, please try the following steps;

If you run some type of personal firewall or security software, make sure that you configure it to fully allow PnkBstrA.exe. These kicks are most often caused by PnkBstrA.exe service failing to properly install PnkBstrB.exe service during gameplay.

Also, several Windows 7 users have reported that the following steps corrected the issue for them: 1) login as an Administrator user, 2) open Windows Explorer and browse to c:\windows\system32 (or wherever the windows folder is on your machine) - note: if you run Windows 7 64 bit, you need to browse to c:\windows\syswow64 instead, 3) scroll down and find PnkBstrA.exe, 4) right-click PnkBstrA.exe and choose Properties, 5) click the Compatiblity tab, 6) click the button at the bottom of the window that reads "Change settings for all users", 7) click the checkbox for "Run this program as an administrator", 8) click the "Ok" buttons to accept the changes and get back out.

Auduril79, please try the following steps;

If you run some type of personal firewall or security software, make sure that you configure it to fully allow PnkBstrA.exe. These kicks are most often caused by PnkBstrA.exe service failing to properly install PnkBstrB.exe service during gameplay.

Also, several Windows 7 users have reported that the following steps corrected the issue for them: 1) login as an Administrator user, 2) open Windows Explorer and browse to c:\windows\system32 (or wherever the windows folder is on your machine) - note: if you run Windows 7 64 bit, you need to browse to c:\windows\syswow64 instead, 3) scroll down and find PnkBstrA.exe, 4) right-click PnkBstrA.exe and choose Properties, 5) click the Compatiblity tab, 6) click the button at the bottom of the window that reads "Change settings for all users", 7) click the checkbox for "Run this program as an administrator", 8) click the "Ok" buttons to accept the changes and get back out.

Already went through these steps before, and both A and B are in the exception list in the Windows Firewall program, and I don't use any other firewall program and I'm using Microsoft Security Essentials for anti virus, but can't find any support to help with letting PB go through if it's even blocking PB in the first place. I'm not using Windows 7, I'm still using Windows XP 32 bit.

I can only suggest you contact Ubisoft Support for further help and advice, if you are not already doing so.

You could also contact even balance (who make punkbuster)

With all my misreadings, does the DLC contains singleplayer content?

The DLC contains only multiplayer content, in answer to the question.

The new characters seems nice and the price is fair. I played a couple of sessions yesterday with people who had them. I'm not getting it though because I like the doctors and I wouldn't use them.

I also noticed they dropped the price to 45 euros from 60 for the digital exclusive edition, when the game is just over a week old (on ubishop). Although I understand that we payed more to get the game on release day but 15 euros lower? In less than 10 days? That's 25% and it actually feels like a slap in the face!

These look really cool. My only question is (and sorry if it has been answered, but I could not find it)... Will players who have purchased this DLC be separated from players who have not? Or will both types of players still be allowed to play together?

I've played a few games since this came out and don't think I've noticed anybody playing the new avatars, but I could be mistaken.

Thank you in advance for any information!

The Ancestors Pack DLC doesn't split the player-base as everyone can see it. If your team leader chooses one of the new characters, you'll also use them too! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

IMO, since this was the first DLC to be released for the game, it should've been free, especially whereas they're simply characters for the MP and not the SP section of the game.

I bought the pack for pc via ubishop, got the mail, entered it in the game, got 4 notificaions of gerenic something added, and when I go to MP, my characters aren't there, eny1 got the same problem?
