Despite claims that the Assassin's Creed franchise would be taking a "breather," Ubisoft confirmed earlier this week that it will have a new Assassin's Creed out before the end of March 2012. However, that doesn't mean the publisher is yet through with the game's current iteration, confirming today that a new downloadable content update for Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood will be available in March.

Available for $10 (800 Microsoft points) through the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live, The Da Vinci Disappearance includes both single-player and multiplayer content to extend the experience of Brotherhood. The solo mission sees players attempting to track down Leonardo Da Vinci, who was kidnapped by the Hermeticists after the fall of Borgias in Rome. As Ezio, players will track Da Vinci through clues found in art, uncovering two new locations and a pair of gameplay features.

Sapin's Albaicin of Granada has seen an influx of suspicious characters.

According to Ubisoft, The Da Vinci Disappearance represents the most substantive multiplayer expansion yet for Brotherhood. It will include a single map, Alhambra, which is set in Spain's Albaicin of Granada and features multistory gameplay in both indoor and outdoor areas. Four new characters will also be included: Dama Rossa, the Knight, the Marquis, and the Pariah.

The multiplayer add-on also includes two new gameplay modes: Escort and Assassinate. In Escort, two teams of four players guard their own VIP while attempting to assassinate the opposing side's very important target. Assassinate mode sees six to eight players attempting to off each other a la classic deathmatch.

I need to put DCUO down and finish this game. I love it, but it suffers from me paying a monthly fee for another game. That is my core problem with MMO style games, and one of the reasons I've not played one in years. I am the type who loves to play lots of games of different genres and on different platforms. But when I'm paying a monthly fee to play a game, I start to feel like I should be playing that game when I'm playing another. So where I would have beat this game by now under normal circumstances, I keep putting it off to put more time into DCUO. For that reason, I'm not sure how much longer I will keep up DCUO. I love it, but if it keeps me from playing other games, I may have to let it go. At least for a while.

(That's because the video comes attached with advertisements. More hits up an ad counter is always good - at least for GameSpot.)

@Andy9Beans Gamespot always seems to embed the wrong video in its articles. A lot of the time they seem to plug in a video even when the article has nothing to do with it, so when an opportunity to post something useful comes up, I guess they cant wait to ruin it

@foxrock: yes, actually. The second DLC was pretty good, IMO. 1st one, not so much - I'll agree with you and the others there. But Chest Capture mode actually was pretty good. Plus, community map releases are pretty nice and really convenient.

They give us new DLC every year, but they just sell it for full price.

@rigzzsy Go find the official trailer (top of video list on Gamespot's ACB page), there are 8 chievo's mentioned at 0:39s. It would have helped if Gamespot had embedded the official trailer on this page instead of the Animus Project 1.0 trailer from last December, d'oh!

I love me some Assassin's Creed, but the way Ubi is pushing the series forward (quickly) is almost Activisionian in aggressiveness! That said, I got almost all the DLC for ACII, so I suppose I'll be getting this, too. Gotta catch up and beat the game, first!

Considering they already gave us 2 substantial Multiplayer DLC packs for free this sounds good. I'm still going to check the reviews before I make my purchase though.

I don't really care for any AC DLC. Past experiences with AC2's ones showed me they were a bad idea. Anyways, we'll get another AC before the end of the year, so yeah.

Sorry Ubisoft. It's bad enough I had to pay for the AC 2 DLC with no achievements but I'm passing this up easily.

Cool that DLC is coming out, NOT cool that if I want the single player content alone I'll have to pay $10 for the multiplayer nonsense I could care less about. Why does Ubisoft assume people give a s*** about their multiplayer? AC has been a single player IP forever. Oh well, they just passed up a chance to get money from this gamer. *shrug*.
