The pattern of console-exclusive DLC continues this holiday season, as Ubisoft has announced that Assassins Creed: Brotherhood will have PS3-exclusive downloadable content available for free when the game launches on November 16.
Yes, you read that correctly: the “Copernicus Conspiracy” DLC will be accessible via the PlayStation Network immediately upon the game’s launch. Don’t start asking why it wasn’t just included on the game disc; we don’t have the answer.
In the Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood “Copernicus Conspiracy,” players will have access to several new missions from an exclusive mission giver: the Renaissance astronomer Copernicus. The extra content will include courier, assassination and protection missions. Ezio, the main character in the game, will be tasked with foiling the conspiracy against Copernicus and defending his philosophy.
