Just as Ezio's last adventure sneaks its way into Constantinople (and the real world) today, Ubisoft's announced that the first piece of DLC will be coming on December 13th. The Ancestors Character Pack will bundle four new multiplayer personas for players to take online. The Privateer, Corsair, Gladiator and Brigand will all come with unique weapons, taunts and assassination moves. And you'll be able to play through the latest Assassin's Creed on PC on 11/29.
This DLC raises the question of balance and whether you'll be able to play against other Revelations users who didn't opt to get the content. Many games—like Gears of War 3 and Burnout Paradise—have forced updates through where players can see the new assets in the gameworld even if they haven't bought it. Said players won't be able to use it, of course. We've reached out to Ubisoft to see if this is the strategy they'll be using for Assassin's Creed Revelations and will update once we hear back.
