Leonardo Da Vinci has been captured and it is up to Ezio to discover to free his friend from a cult bent on “transforming” mankind. “The Da Vinci Disappearance” is a new expansion to last year’s Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, and brings 8 new single-player missions, 2 new multiplayer modes and more. The add-on will launch sometime in March for both Xbox Live and Playstation, retailing at 800 Microsoft Points, or $10.
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.
