Free, PS3-Exclusive DLC Launching with Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar + Posted by Jeff Rubenstein on Nov 02, 2010 // Sr. Social Media Manager

Today, our friends at Ubisoft shared with us details of Copernicus Conspiracy, a free, PS3-exclusive download for Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood.

Assassin's Creed Brotherhood: Copernicus Conspiracy

This additional content revolves around Renaissance astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus (see what I did there?), who will have extra assignments for Ezio, including courier, assassination and protection missions. The missions are part of a storyline involving a conspiracy against Copernicus and his heliocentric philosophy, which was revolutionary at the time.

The Copernicus Conspiracy content will be available for free download on November 16, 2010, which happens to be the day Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood launches for PlayStation 3.

That is awesome! Can’t wait to play this game… By the way, I know this is a long shot- but I am willing to give it a shot:

Assassin’s Creed III in 2012…? Come on, make that game already!!! :-p

Will the DLC be free only for a limited time? I love the AC games and I plan on getting Brotherhood, just not around launch.

    Major props to Jeff for including the heliocentric reference in his writeup. Somebody was awake during history class!

I did not get into the first CREED but I loved Assasins Creed 2. I know they have made many improvements to the game. So this is a DAY ! purchase for me especially since it launches the day after my birthday (hint, hint Jeff) lol. Keep the 3A games coming guys.

RE: Publishers

Stop putting exclusive DLC on multiplatform games. You other commenters are obviously happy now, but are so quick to forget Dead Rising 2 and Fallout New Vegas. Enough of this trend already.

We don’t care about this stuff. All we want is Gt5 release date….NOW. And the game, before christmas!!!
It was supposed to come out today!!!!!

Give us a GT5 date Sony!!! It was suppose to come out today! At least give us a firm date and not give the silent treatment.

This game looks awesome. All I care about in the gaming world is a Gran Turismo 5 release date.

The day 1 DLC stuff is ridiculous. Sure it’s great that it works out for PS3 owners, but what about everybody else? This and pre-order exclusives have become such a plague on gaming.

+ ArcaneAltair on November 2nd, 2010 at 1:26 pm said:

All the more reason to buy it.

2 more weeks to go.

+ DABUNKER on November 2nd, 2010 at 1:28 pm said:

DLC right out of the gate!! No thanks. I’ll just wait a couple months and buy the “Game Of The Year” edition, and get all the DLC they plan to nickle and dime us for for free.

Man I’m getting sick to death of this kind of development. Revisitng a game later and adding something new that wasn’t available before is cool, but prepping stuff like this that is being developed at the same time as the rest of the game is just wrong. Especially when they could surely fit it onto the blueray disk without any trouble.

love the trend.
of exclusive dlc for the ps3.

perfect way to show respect to where your company got its start.

just dont get greedy like activision..

btw its nice that ea is recognizing the ps3 for far to long has the ps3 taken for granted in terms of multiplatorm games

+ Rambo_24 on November 2nd, 2010 at 1:44 pm said:

Can’t wait to get the game, little retarded how we have to pay for a DLC for more story missions, a soon as the game comes out? Whats up with that?
But the game will still be amazing, GO ACB!!

+ xiked on November 2nd, 2010 at 1:57 pm said:

Fantastic that SONY keep on getting EXCLUSIVE DLC for multiplattform games! Keep it up and you will get even more multiplat owner to buy PS3 games. that make me happy! Have collectors edition pre ordered! This will be awesome!

+ mew_frenger on November 2nd, 2010 at 2:00 pm said:

this trend needs to go, stop right now!

sure its fun when ps3 gets it, but when xbox gets it everybody hates it.

sony, please tell publishers that they shouldnt do this,. if u rly want ppl to buy the game on ps3 make the graphics as good as the 360 version.

+ NEJI64 on November 2nd, 2010 at 2:06 pm said:

@24Nahela I agree with you on the exclusive DLC is retarded. But Pre-order exclusive content no, when it comes to that you have nobody to blame but yourself. Its content that’s open to everybody before the game comes out, and if you want to wait for reviews or to hear how the game is before you buy it then its your lost.
