Free ‘Animus Project’ DLC announced for AC: Brotherhood

Ubisoft has announced the first bit of downloadable content for Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood today, and it’s the free multiplayer-oriented “Animus Project Update 1.0.”

The update will bring a brand new game mode called “Advanced Alliance,” a more difficult version of the game’s “Alliance” mode. It will support three teams of two players a piece.

Also being added is a new multiplayer map, “Mont Saint-Michel,” which is set on the island of Normandy in France. Ubisoft describes the map as offering “breathtaking scenery sure to enchant all. Its particular topography of narrow streets, high-perched bell tower and multi-leveled architecture is perfect for hunters to surge from out of nowhere to execute their prey.”

The content will be out on December 14 for both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
