Assassin’s Creed: Revelations ‘Ancestors’ DLC date set

Four new multiplayer characters next month.

The first piece of downloadable content for Assassin’s Creed: Revelations will be released on December 13, Ubisoft has announced.

The “Ancestors” character pack, as it’s called, will unlock four new multiplayer characters: “the swashbuckling Privateer, the devious siren Corsair, the battle-tested Brigand and the bloodthirsty Gladiator.” Each character comes equipped with its own unique taunts, weapons, and stylized assassinations.

The pack will cost $3.99 on PlayStation Network and 320 Microsoft Points on Xbox LIVE. It, as well as the game’s second DLC, is available for pre-order today.

As for why you’d want to pre-order DLC… we don’t know. Care to enlighten us?
