PlayStation 3 owners are in for some day-one exclusive when Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood stabs its way to retail next month. Ubisoft is giving the PlayStation faithful a little Copernicus to beef up the game's single-player side.

The PlayStation.blog writes that astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus will be at the center of the downloadable "Copernicus Conspiracy" add-on, giving everyone's favorite Renaissance era assassin Ezio new tasks with which to occupy his time. Those courier, assassination and protection missions arrive November 16, the same day Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood ships in North America.
