Ubisoft’s throat slitting franchise will be getting some new blood this spring. In March 2011, you can expect to see a huge new expansion pack for Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood. The DLC will include two new areas for players to explore in single player mode. The reason for doing this? Well, Ezio’s little pal Da Vinci got himself kidnapped because he’s a damned genius. These kidnappers are world dominating freaks and want to use his special gifts to rule. You should probably rescue him before it is too late. That is, if you can rip yourself away from the new multi-player components.
The Dama Rossa, the Knight, the Marquis and the Pariah will all be new characters added into the multi-player slash fest. The “Alhambra” map is a lush quarter of a Spanish city that will allow your stealthy feet to creep around in a multi-level indoor/outdoor arena. Finally, there are also two new modes. First up is Escort. Two teams of four players each are tasked with assassinating the opposing team’s VIP. Assassinate, the final mode, is a ten minute round of Deathmatch. Get the map packs for $10.oo on Xbox and PS3 when they release.
