Assassin’s Creed® Brotherhood
“The Da Vinci Disappearance” DLC available EARLY March


London, UK – February 17th, – Ubisoft announced today the release of the new downloadable content (DLC) for Assassin’s Creed® Brotherhood for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system. The new DLC, entitled “The Da Vinci Disappearance”, will be available for download at beginning of March 2011 on XBOX LIVE® and on the PlayStation®Network. The DLC will be made available for 800 Microsoft points.

The Da Vinci Disappearance will include both single-player and multiplayer content for Assassin’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 Spain’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 Assassin’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 in this team-based mode where each team must protect their VIP target or assassinate the other team’s VIP. In Assassinate mode, six to eight players are pitted against each other deathmatch style in one ten minute round.

This is well and truely great, sounds awesome; HOWEVER I do hope the servers are fixed properly so we can connect to games flawlessly especially with friends. I am always getting seperated from them and we hardly get into games by ourselves.

I'm from EU, and I wish to continue downloading the DLC packs when the servers are sorted. I'd rather lose out on DLC for Servers.

Sounds awesome.
TBH, I wanted to see more missions of Leonard, as I felt his role in both the games combined was minor and served as 'fan service'(I like Leonardo, I just wanted him to have a fitting role in the games).

I wonder what are the new gameplay features and how they will service us in this upcoming DLC..

Edit: If this DLC costs 800 MS points on the Xbox, how much will it cost on the PSS?

Am I the only one who thinks it sucks that PS3 users get extra content free (Copernicus Conspiracy) and yet us Xbox users have to skip that part of the story and buy the next part of the story? The PS3 users had Copernicus Conspiracy for free but Xbox users have to pay 800 ms points to get the next add-on. I think that's unfair. &gt;-[

Wow, wow, and more wow. This sounds absolutely amazing!

I'm most looking forward to the "two new gameplay features". I assume they'll be of the same kind as Ezio's Sprint Jump in Bonfire of the Vanities -- some new free-running techniques would be awesome, though knowing Ubi I wouldn't be surprised if they came up with something even more epic.

The characters sound pretty cool as well. Pariah? I wanna play!

Oh, and the new game modes. Hot damn.

Maybe wall running. Not the verticle kind, but actual "approach at an angle, jump off at an angle" type stuff (free runners call it a tic-tac.)

Looks good, but I'm loath to pay for content I'm never going to use -- in this case, having to pay for the multi-player stuff to get the single-player content. It's not like the MPers haven't already gotten plenty of DLC while the SPers haven't gotten anything to speak of since Copernicus.

So, may buy, may not. If Ubi splits it into Sp and MP, then definitely buying the SP :-).

That makes no sense whatsoever.

Regardless of who pays and who doesn't, if people can afford to, and think it worthwhile, they'll pay.

If not, they wont.

It will probably be that "4 year gap" between sequence 8 and 9, unless that's what Lost Legacy is going to be (even though it's only for 3DS). It wouldn't surprise me though, since the two AC2 DLCs spanned 10 years or so.

I REALLY hope we PC players get it with the game.

You never know, she may have a hat as her elite gear like the Thief does. For all we know it may be a hat of such epic proportions, even the Queen herself would pale before such excellence in hattedness.

I'd also love to see videos of players doing the dinosaur in matches. Epicness ensues. First time I saw that video I was laughing for like five minutes straight.

Ooh, I just conjured up her revelation video: In Castel Gandalfo we see the Courtesan sprinting up the left-hand steps. Cut to a woman standing near one of the performance tents tapping her weapon on a railing or something. We pan across to the chase breaker doors, and the Courtesan comes running through. Thinking she's safe, she enters a blend group. Damma Rosa taps the fork one more time, but it's out of key. She tilts her head, spies the Courtesan, and slowly turns. In one fell swoop, she impales her victim, removes the weapon, cleans it and taps it once more, to which we hear the fork ring out a perfect "A" note and Damma Rosa walks calmly away whilst her victim lies bleeding on the ground...

@Rainie This is true. I suppose we'll have to continue to live in fear of the hat-wearing ginger boogeysassin, out to punch us in the face.

Looking forward to more details on escort though! Seems like it would be a much tighter team activity than Manhunt or CC. (You can work as a team in both, but sometimes you just get those derpy rambos that feel the need to go off and do their own thing.)

Serrachio
02-17-2011, 05:51 PM
(WARNING, THIS POST CONTAINS MAJOR CRITICISM, SO DON'T BE OFFENDED BY WHAT I MIGHT THINK)

These new multiplayer players don't appeal that much to me at all, and it's not made any better by the fact that one of them has hair that looks like a character idea of mine, and if the name is what I perceive it to be, it sounds like a copy. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

I'd have thought they'd have upgraded the Captain before releasing a Knight.

I don't know what the hell a Dama Rossa is, (although I think it might be a flower-lady if the Dama means Dame and Rossa means Rose. If it is, it looks nothing like how I imagine my character with the tight leather outfit) and I think a Pariah is a person of low class or a herald.

Improvements I can think up

Guy with hat

The guy's faceplate/metal mask looks bad at the moment. It needs to be more rounded like the brim of his hat, or have the brim of the hat appear over it. I mean, the guy has (I think) a rounded appearance and the squarish mask ruins it.

You should change his collar too. It copies the Nobleman's Elite Gear, maybe remove the dots in the fur and make it plain white. His mask squashes his nose, so he needs the front of the mask to round out where his nose is to give him breathing room. I would have thought the bottom edges of the mask would come down some more and cover his chinline.

You seem to have missed a button strap on his neck. On his wrists I'd have thought the material would flare out a little.

Also, What is his weapon supposed to be? It looks like a primitive taser, or does the killing part shoot up when the trigger is pressed like the Officer's Epieu?

Other than those things, the only improvements could be the trim around the bottom of his coat being gold.

Woman in leather suit

Top to bottom again.

The hair needs a minor alteration to it. Her fringe makes her hair look boring. You could maybe split the bigger part of her fringe in two and bring the back part down a little.

For her neck-collar/choker. You could change the ball to have a little carved rose bloom in it.

Her ribbons look a little... plain to be quite honest. I would bring her gloves down a touch to show a little more of her arm off. To the forearm I would think.

She doesn't fill out her outfit which is a little weird. It leaves her top looking too big for her, which doesn't help that her trouser's waistline comes out so far. Either make her hips bigger, or scale down the trouserline to fit her.

Her belt, it looks like the ribbon is tied so lazily and it puts me off somewhat. Also, her belt needs a loop in it to slide the remaining part through and her belt pouches look really blocky. Maybe if they had a more rounded appearance, I'd like it. It seems that most of the characters that have these pouches have blocky square things.

Her gloves need a band arount the wrist so they can be tightened. Seeing as this character has (as I've observed) a fetish for leather, it could be a leather belt wriststrap.

The brown leather boots should come just below the knee so it doesn't look like she's copying the Hellequin's boot upgrade and have a belt strap where the ankle is. Also she could have the foot part of her boots be the same colour as her suit so the colour carries on through the whole body.

Her weapon seems to look something like a pair of tongs or something, but it keeps making me think of the Engineer. What are they?

Count guy/Cesare lookalike

I can't see many problems with this guy, The only things I can comment on are his shoes, his neck and his kneeguards.

For his shoes, they look so poorly done. It looks like he'd be more likely to fall over in them because you can't really see any soles on them/something to keep his heel steady. Also, I'd bring the boot in close to his feet at the back to make it form-fitting.

For his neck, you can hardly see it. I'm not saying the ruffles around his neck is bad, but maybe you could 'shave' the beard hair off on the lower neck (where his adam's apple would be) to put more light in.

For his knee-guards, there should be some straps on the side of his leg to keep them in place because they look like they'll fall off quite easily. You could also take that flared bit behind the knee and bring it in where the curve of the leg would be so it looks like it's on tightly.

Knight guy

I'm finding it hard to like this guy. It seems he was pulled out of AC1 instead of the current time period so to me, he feels really outdated.

Anyway, I think his helm feathers need to be changed because they look more like ragged cloth than red feathers. Also, they need to be re-arranged because they don't make him look all that fierce.

On his helmet he has the Templar cross, but I'd have thought that it would be more curved than how it's all straight-lined.

On the underpart of the helmet, I'd take away the dots, and make sort of a 'keyhole' pattern along the rim of the top part.

For the belts under his shoulderplates, they should be more criss-crossed if you get me. Like a pattern of: Belt, Space, Belt, Space, Belt. And then the line of belts under that would go: Space, Belt, Space, Belt, Space. So it ends up sort of like a brick wall pattern.

It would be good for the strap along his chest to be more decorated. It would be good if his plating was less faded too. I'd think it could be polished bronze and silver.

For his armguards, I'd bring the second biggest plating in to the forearm, because it looks awkward at the moment. Where the leather flaps from his waist come down and lead to the studded square parts, I'd put a thinner section of metal plates over the top of them, as it seems his suit of armour is more leather than metal.

For the rosette like thing on his waist, I would think it would look better if the cloth behind the metal part formed a plus shape instead of a puffy circle, think of it like the cloth behind it is in a Templar cross shape.

On his leg-guards, he has a nice pattern, but for the backs of them, it would look nice if he had a set of horizontal lines going down the back of his leg. It would match up to where the breaks in the leg-guards are and look good.

For his sword, I'd like it if the hilt-guard was symmetrical, and the sword had a plate going halfway down the blade in the same shape as the sword with maybe a decoration on it and it would be painted red in between the decoration.

(END OF CRITICISM)

Sorry I could help it, I want the characters to look awesome, but unique.

Also, Ubisoft better make my ideas, they will be leet. Rawr http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

Somewhat, it should be cheaper in pounds due to the euro to pound rate. It should be like £5 - £6. Unless they just decide to keep the price at 9.99 for each of the three currency's.

Announcements like this just fill me with trepidation now. Multiplayer gets so screwed up with massive waiting times, lag and glitches everytime they implement even the smallest change. Glitches that are only ironed out over the weeks after the DLC is out as more people download it.

With pay-for-play DLC there will always be people who won't install it. I'm concerned that this will result in long-lasting multiplayer issues that will never get truely sorted as there will always be people who don't have it trying to play a match against people who do. which is what seems to cause the raft of problems in the first place.

I'd much rather Ubisoft spent the same amount of time and effort sorting out the myriad of persistent issues with the multiplayer aspect of the game that still havn't been resolved, rather than release another DLC, no matter how good it is...

just 8 missions seems a little short to me(and i don't really care about the multiplayer)...Copernicus Conspiracy has only 8 memories too and people seem to complain that it was bad(haven't played it though and i hope it comes for PC)...anyway it's a good thing we got a SP DlC and i hope it turns out to be great and longer than it appears,but it doesn't sound like the big SP DLC that was rumored....i wonder if there will be more DLC after this.

There probably are going to be more DLC, but this one also sounds amazing, not only do you get a whole new memory sequence in single player, but also plenty of new content for multiplayer. You really should try MP out, it's amazing. I'm pretty sure this DLC will bring about even more cool gadgets and gizmos for Ezio to use, and mix up the game styles of the MP, and also bringing in new Personas is FTW! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I think this is right on schedule from when they teased it before AC:B's release.

I just really hope it is more polished than the 2 missing memories from AC2 - they really should have been much better. Since they are adding some trophies, I feel like it may be more like a finished product.

Just like to add...Copernicus Conspiracy was rank rotten. Don't be envious microsoft fans you saved your self 20/40mins of your life. It was like side assassination missions in AC2, the very basic of the game but cool sometimes but rarely, repetitive and overall pretty dull.

Cant wait for this.

I thought we would be getting this around the same time as the previous DLC the 18th. I hope when they say early March they mean it. Early March is between the 1st & 10th or am I just being impatient? It cant come soon enough anyway. Now I need to decide which console to get it for.

Characters look great, but I dont like the female character. She looks to modern for my taste.

If Assassinate mode is a FFA i'll be playing that mode for sure

Im really looking forward to Escort. I think that will be more of a stealthy game especially if the attackers cant kill the protectors. Finally a reason to use other abilities.

Not seen much on the map but what I have looks sweet. I wonder if we will have to disable any of the other DLC though. I hope not.

& More - I like the sound of this

SP add on to and for the price. Great bargain.

It's hard to tell for sure, but in the following interview from early November it's revealed that the DLC in March will have 2 secret locations, so this may be what it's referring to.

Also, the North American trailer for the DLC was released today and instead of "Early March" at the end it says "March 8, 2011." I'm sure this is just the North American date though.

It appears that they have changed their minds on what they had planned on doing. I would have preferred that they make a gigantic piece of dlc for later November around 20 bucks or so and then took that extra time to make a really awesome game for 2010 but it seems that Ubisoft wanted more money than that. I still really hope we get another SP DLC because as cool as this one seems it also seems pretty short and a little too MP oriented which I'm not interested in.

Yeah, it looks like they're going to do with this year's game what they did with Brotherhood. From a few interviews, I think Ubisoft basically said that Brotherhood was originally going to be a large expansion DLC, but then they decided they could really blow it out into a full game and did that. I bet whatever they may have been planning for late 2011 will just get turned into another Brotherhood-level game. With another cliffhanger ending of course...

I'm curious at how they'll justify the narrative of the Da Vinci Disappearance DLC without revealing the results of the cliffhanger ending. I'm starting to suspect the DLC may actually take place between AC2 and ACB in 2012. I think there's a story gap at the beginning of Brotherhood that's never addressed in the game. First of all, Desmond's clothes have changed as well as his hidden blade in ACB. He's either got a new blade or lost the metal bracer that the blade he used at the end of AC2 had. Also, when you first arrive in Monterrigioni you can look at the side of the truck/van and see a lot of bullet holes, which weren't made at the end of AC2.

The emails also give some clue. Desmond escaped Abstergo on September 8, 2012 and AC2 shows him spending only 2 days in the Animus, most likely ending on September 9. The first email you get in ACB is dated September 17, 2012. Seems like we're missing a week of time. At the end of AC2 Lucy says there's a cabin up north where they'll be safe. If they were in Florence in AC2, as hinted by the buildings outside the warehouse, Monterrigioni is south of Florence, not north.

Finally, there's the weird way that Brotherhood started, with Desmond all of a sudden trying to access Ezio's memories from 1507 and encountering the weird synching issues. It just felt kind of weird, like something happened in between the games that we never saw that causes them to start searching for the Apple and all of a sudden knowing what year Ezio hid it. Perhaps they know because Desmond had already skipped past the time of the Borgias and relived the capture of Leonardo and got close to the memory they were seeking, then encountered issues at the beginning of Brotherhood and had to go back to the memory of the Vault.

Just my latest crazy theory...

If they were really money grubbing, wouldn't they have released the PC version months ago before it was ready in order to get more sales? And wouldn't they have done it before the DLC was available so they could make sure PC users have to pay for that as well?

All I read was... WAAAAAAAAH!

The reason it was put to PS3/360 before PC is because it was MADE FOR IT. PC needs better graphical enhancements, and other stringy technical wonderments. I'm not gonna argue that you should wait, but be better to the company for even making a PC game for AC:B.

so your going to see the same movie on TV for free than in theaters, so why not just wait 2 years?

also for whoever said that it didn't really support the fact that they are money grubbing is that they are releasing a DLC on around the same time as the game (this is before I knew it was free)

They're not a charity. They still have to make money. DLC is part of that money-making process. That and there's probably a million bugs, fixes and patches they've had to put together for the PC version (I don't know how it works with developing a game, so that's just a guess.)

But still, they released plenty of DLC for free prior to now, and even installed a new map on the servers to avoid disruption, so they're hardly money grabbing Ebeneezers, are they?

You would be better off on a specialized forum with "PC versus Console" crap. Not in here trying to flame-bait.

This being said, onwards to the point: ACB is, what I suspect, the ""norm" for Ubisoft regarding this franchise, at least: Console being released before PC. And it makes sense too: PC is pirating AAA titles like there is no tomorrow, so, from the bussiness`s point of view, which is every Company`s goal, it makes more sense to have the first money for Consoles.

TLDR: Be grateful they released for PC after all. Remember the DRM for AC2? Why do you think it existed in the first place?

As I said before.. this is not the time nor the place for "Console versus PC" antics. It is an answer just like many possible others:

1. Easier platform
2. More gullible buyers
3. Better control (XBOX and PSN accounts can be banned - PC can`t)
4. Better DLC control (XBOX and PS have to buy them - PC .. not so much) - just look at Mass Effect 2...

And it can go on and on and on. It`s all about the money - they sell us "a good time", we pay them "for the good time", regardless of platform.

they are money grubbing becuase its like they arn't even trying to release the PC game but working on content that other people can buy. They think that if they ever release something on PC it will get pirated, which is true, but it is also true for any console, the only difference is you need a disk. And I know their main objective is to make money, but there still has to be some concern for the customer. And we are just supposed to forget about them neglecting us for 5 months, just becuase they give us a free DLC. Thats like waiting 5 hours for a meal at mcdonalds, but you get a free toy. I may be a little unfair and it may take a while to get it over to PC, but I think 5 months is a little eccentric.

Jeez, be grateful they're releasing it for the PC at all! There are literally TONS of games specific to the PS3 and XBox only that were never, and will never be released to the PC. Ubisoft is going above and beyond by making this game available to PC users, not to mention all the DLC expansions they're providing.

I fail to see how people can complain that Ubisoft doesn't care about the customer, when clearly they do so much for their community. Look at everything they do for us; far above and beyond what nearly any other game company does. In addition to the forums, the constant updates, the game devs and reps actually talking to us, the players, they even go so far as to provide pretty regular video updates and news personally. Not to mention involving the players directly with these new challenges and prizes, such as the Rome Dusk and Venice Night maps. They're actually gone so far to create a real game community, in which they have directly involved themselves. You almost never see this from any other game company.

So many people ***** and moan about how their needs aren't immediately satisfied, and so help us all if they aren't served hand and foot right then and there. These are the kind of people that don't even understand the kind of work creative professionals put into these products that they're clamoring over themselves to get. Personally I don't think AC:B even needs to be on the PC. I think their time would be far more well-spent working on the next game in the series. And yet here they are, again going above and beyond to re-code the game for you guys. Have some appreciation, instead of stamping your foot like a five year old.

Are you sure that you are living on Earth?

The "profile reset" bug is about 3 months old. They had SO MUCH concern for the customer, that they still haven`t patched it until today.

Instead, they released DLC`s.. a good idea, but one can safely argue that they must have a functional game first. Then again.. the large majority does not have problems... the NUMBERS on the STATISTIC.

At the end of the day, there will ALWAYS be ONE or <STRIKE>MANY</STRIKE> MORE dissatisfied customers. Be it with a bug or platform. Be it for the idealistic "right and wrong".

You are a paying customer. You can pay for a product or not, based on how you judge the said product. Anything else is just a nice story.

4 characters, 2 modes, 2 maps, all the new single player stuff, and theyre only charging 10 dollars.

It's easy for them to say that.
One of them ironically even uses the term 'instead of stamping your foot like a five year old.', I would love to see the console kids reaction if THEY were made to wait 5 MONTHS for a release that was already on the PC, Dummies would be flying in all diffrent directions.
I'll say what I have said more than once why would I pay to downgrade my system?
If you want to play a game on an inferior machine go for it and if Ubisoft only want to work with tech from 2/3 years ago they are welcome to it.
Thankfully Ubisoft seem to want to work with modern machines even though their customer care leaves plenty to be desired

Nobody is suggesting you do this. We're just suggesting that you STOP BL**DY COMPLAINING ABOUT IT LIKE A LITTLE KID because it's really annoying. Either get a console if you want to play now, or wait. It's your decision.


Stop having a go at Ubisoft (and everyone else, it seems) just because you don't want to wait. Do you throw a tantrum whenever PC gamers get an exclusive, or the console version comes out much later? I had to wait years for the ps3 version of TES: Oblivion to come out. During those years I got on with my life rather than railing about the crushing unfairness of it all.

Most other publishers you say?

Like Bioware and its Mass Effect exclusive for consoles?

Like Bungie with its Halo exclusive for consoles?

Like your beloved Rockstar with its famous ports and now exclusives?

List can go on, but we need to make one thing clear: EVERY company makes the game primarily for ONE platform. So you get a version, let`s call it "final", which is designed specifically for either CONSOLE or PC. Then it is ported to the OTHER platform. There are very FEW exceptions to this rule.

Even the Rockstar giant screwed up with the PC version of GTA 4, which was nothing else than a cheap port that was trying to access the console multi-cores and ran poorly as a consequence.

So, it is BETTER that Ubi is releasing the PC later, ASSUMING it is "smartly ported". or at least tailored for the PC. Because the alternative would look like your beloved Blizzard partner and its famous Black Ops for PS3.

Restomaniac, im so with you.
our (pc players) view in this discussion is that USUALLY games for all platforms (DA2, CoD:BO, Crysis2, Dead Space2, etc etc) have release in the same time, on the same day.
Saying "game is for one platform" is strange. These companies somehow managed to give one release date, why for Ubisoft its so difficult?
And of course it is very easy to curse the other side when you are on this better one. I sooo much wish to have ac3 before consoles, roles would be switched. Nowadays its so hard to understand how other people feel I see.

I think we should stop this war, its not time and place for that.

im just happy with announced date and new dlc. "only" month before playing lasts.

Welcome to the Forums, and yes, it can be done.

If you go onto your map by pressing the Back/Select button or selecting Map after pressing Start, there should be an option to filter out the icons on the map.

They come in different categories so find out which one has the Borgia Flags in it, then Disable all and Enable the Borgia Flag option.

Then go into the other categories and disable all of them. This way, the only icons that will show up are the flags.

Good news, but I don't think I will like the Assasinate game mode. Too much CoD like, and it will turn this game mode into yet another free for all fest. Bad move Ubi Soft, after all this game wants to be different so why create such a game mode?

Assassin’s Creed® Brotherhood
“The Da Vinci Disappearance” DLC available EARLY March


London, UK – February 17th, – Ubisoft announced today the release of the new downloadable content (DLC) for Assassin’s Creed® Brotherhood for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system. The new DLC, entitled “The Da Vinci Disappearance”, will be available for download at beginning of March 2011 on XBOX LIVE® and on the PlayStation®Network. The DLC will be made available for 800 Microsoft points.

The Da Vinci Disappearance will include both single-player and multiplayer content for Assassin’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 Spain’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 Assassin’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 in this team-based mode where each team must protect their VIP target or assassinate the other team’s VIP. In Assassinate mode, six to eight players are pitted against each other deathmatch style in one ten minute round.

For updates on Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood, please visit the game’s official Web site at www.assassinscreed.com, (http://www.assassinscreed.com,) via Twitter @AssassinsCreed and Facebook at facebook.com/assassinscreed.

Assassin's Creed Project Legacy is available on Facebook at: http://apps.facebook.com/projectlegacy

More info on Assassin’s Creed Ascendance, the animated short can also be found at the official website.

For English people...
Well using simple math it should be £6.80 ish.
As it is 800 (We can only buy 1000 for £8.50) so divide that by 5 to give us the price of 200MSP times by 4 to give us 800MSP = £6.80
Basically the same price of what the ones for ACII were. with slight change due to VAT

Yeah this new DLC looks cool but a little scary! I don't see very many places to hide like in other maps, and thats my fav part of that game! Also the everyone can kill everyone mode I know is gonna make me paranoid to play, because I'll suspect EVERYONE of trying to kill my little Persona!!!

IGN posted a poll sort of between Brotherhood's new DLC and Dead Space 2. Anyways they show and talk a bit about brotherhood's dlc. It's not a whole lot of info but u might like.

http://xboxlive.ign.com/articles/115/1152151p1.html

Cool bit was that fact that the dlc has an intro and outro depending if u beat brotherhood or not. Also takes place after brotherhood, incase ppl think it's in between memories!

Also if you notice the video they show, it shows Ezio without the armor. I'm wondering if maybe ubi gave us the option to take it off or not.

no the video just shows ezio talking to someone, who ive never seen before and then it just shows the guy playing as ezio. Btw it's still in rome and in front of volpe's inn. Other then that there's no spoilers. Pretty much what i said is the only thing new. The guy just talks about gameplay which he says is the same as the retail game.

Personally, I would also like to see the Copernicus Conspiracy on the Xbox, along with the Disappearance DLC. Sorta seems unfair that one system gets story-related missions. I don't care about outfits or weapons that are system-exclusive; just don't be prejudice against a system with something as important as story-mission.

Oh, and I would like to see patch with Brutus armor implemented. Yeah...

The Capernicus DLC isn't story related, since it adds nothing to the overall story. I've watched walkthroughs of it on youtube, trust me, us PC gamers and you Xbox players aren't missing anything.

Well i don't care if it doesn't add anything to the story...for me it's great having another historical figure in the game (Copernicus) and plus it also features a lunar eclipse which is cool(even though it could be just a cut-scene),and besides anything that prolongs Ezio's gameplay is a nice thing...so i would definitely want that on PC.

No, they're not the two lairs. You also do not have to use CAPS to get a message across, it's annoying.

The two places are Lucrezia's Home in Ferrara (Not sure on the name as I don't care, and I'm waiting on the DLC to know more), and the Pythagorean Temple apparently.

I wonder if they will let you keep those paintings in your hideout. Also they should give Ezio his own room with bed and stuff.

Btw for next dlc, Any chances that we could had a couple of missions using Claudia?

That Pythagarean temple looks pretty nice. Is that a hologram on top of the statue's torch? Maybe it's one of the temples Minerva mentioned at the end of AC2?

If you look in the News section of multiplayer, it says that we get some single player stuff only in the Collector's edition, which is that stuff.

Wow this is gona be awesome... ? thought ACB was too... short (i know they put a lot of effort into the game and it awesome... but i just finished it in 3 days... leaving me hungry for more :P ). i also though that it needed to well... be less formal. i love how ezio is more action packed than ever and moves with more class although i mean there isnt much interaction with the peaople rather just the friends u already know. This DLC is sure to change my mind as ezio goes to into the night with *****s gambling fighting theft ect. it will give some nice contrast to the game as ACB focuses on the high class formal skilled killing with established clans rather then the use of more dark nightlife atmosphere.

If you mean the "Da Vinci Disappearance" DLC then it will be available from the Xbox Marketplace/PlayStation Network (I think it is called that)/Already comes free with the PC version of the game.

I haven't seen mention of the trophies available for the DLC so here is a link that shows them....go to the bottom of the page for the DLC. Hazard is an interesting title for the mini-game...

Do you think one of the new gameplay features is being able to throw smoke bombs?
Seeing as this is one of the achievements:
"Strong-Arm
Throw a Long Weapon, Heavy Weapon, and Smoke Bomb more than 10 m at a guard."

I also hope there's some sort of story point that comes out of the DLC. The previews have said that Leonardo has been researching the matter of heavenly spheres and symbols and how they may relate to the Apple of Eden, and that he also discovered a hidden temple's location. Apparently he hid clues to the location of the temple in paintings that Ezio owned at the villa, and those paintings were captured by the Borgia when they attacked the villa. Ezio must track down those paintings to find out the location.

I'm betting that hidden temple is the Pythagorean temple that was shown in the screenshot we've seen. I believe Pythagorus started a temple/cult in a Greek colony in southern Italy that was rather famous. Perhaps it's actually a temple left behind by TWCB?

They talked about the hidden Assassin meeting place a few times in Brotherhood, and William M. was hiding out at that location. He mentioned the hot European summer, so he's in Europe somewhere. He and Lucy both said Desmond would be coming there when they got the Apple. William M. told Shaun in an email that he'd love the meeting place because of lots of history. It would be a cool transition from Brotherhood to the next game if the DLC is introducing this temple which is actually the hidden Assassin meeting place where Desmond will wake up in the next game.
