Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood first DLC has hit Xbox Live and Playstation Network December 14th. The Animus Project Update 1.0 includes a brand new game mode called Advanced Alliance, and a new map called Mont-Saint Michel. The map which is located in Normandy France is best described as a “rocky tidal island” that consists of “narrow streets, high perched belltower, and multi-leveled architecture”. The new game mode is ultimately a “hardcore” version of the existing game mode Advanced Alliance.
Ok, so it sounds good right? Now you want to know how much it is. Well before you go, sharpening your pitchforks and dousing your torches, it’s FREE. So, take the gift and get out there and kill someone. Xbox Live users you can download this update here.
And it was also announced today that even more free stuff will be coming from Ubisoft in the new year. Animus Update 2.0 will be available in January will include another map and another game mode. You have to think about what kind of angle is Ubisoft shooting for here? I mean come on do you really expect us to believe that this is truly free, and you are doing out of the goodness of your heart? Brotherhood is that kind of good though, so gamers certainly appreciate it, right up until the point we’re fiending for new maps like a crack head in an alley scrounging nickels for our next fix.
