The Da Vinci Disappearance brings eight new single-player missions, two new mulitplayer modes and plenty more to Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood when the add-on pack hits the PS3 and Xbox 360 next month.

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 single-player 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 includes 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.

The downloadable content hits in March for 800 Microsoft Points for the Xbox 360 and $9.99 for the PS3.
