162w ago - Ubisoft PR Coordinator Alex Monney has announced today alongside a video that Assassin's Creed Brotherhood: The Da Vinci Disappearance PS3 DLC hits PSN Tuesday.

To quote: This Tuesday, Ubisoft will be releasing its largest DLC offering for Assassin's Creed Brotherhood, the Da Vinci Disappearance. This DLC is bringing more AC: Brotherhood goodness with both single player missions and multiplayer content.

As the title suggests, Ezio's old friend and confidant is in trouble. Now Ezio has taken upon himself to rescue Leonardo Da Vinci. The Da Vinci Disappearance will include eight missions, which will be accessed through markers on your map of Rome (similar to the Copernicus Conspiracy). Ezio will also travel to two new locations and meet Leonardo's assistant, Salai (who may not have as high of moral standards as Leonardo).

But we didn't stop there, as we'll be making updates to multiplayer, including adding four new playable characters. Check out our new trailer showing off some of the new assassins that will be available:





The Da Vinci Disappearance will also include one new map and two new modes. The new map will bring the battle of assassins to Alhambra, a multi-leveled Spanish city featuring outdoor and indoor areas....

163w ago - Sony's Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has shared some hands-on details about the new Mortal Kombat PS3 demo 3D that hits the US PSN next Tuesday and EU PlayStation Network next Wednesday.

To quote: I have played the Mortal Kombat PSN demo in 3D, and it is good. Comprised of four characters and two stages, the demo is a meaty preview of what to expect when the full game hits PS3 on April 19th (April 21st in the EU).

PlayStation Plus subscribers are getting early access this coming Tuesday, March 8th (March 9th in the EU) and it'll be delivered directly to your PS3 as long as you enable Automatic Downloads in your XMB settings. All other PSN users will be able to download the demo on Tuesday, March 15th.

The demo comes with four playable fighters: Johnny Cage, Mileena, Scorpion, and Sub-Zero. Fan-favorite Scorpion is nastier than ever, packing his trademark throwing spear ("Get over here!") and a wicked new sword, while rival ninja Sub-Zero forges weapons from ice and shatters internal organs with a touch.

Hollywood prima donna Johnny Cage hits below the belt, and sai-wielding mutant assassin Mileena makes no effort to hide her gleaming five-inch fangs. You'll also get two environments: The Living Forest and The Pit, complete with its gruesome stage fatality.
