'Assassin's Creed: Revelations' Getting Its First DLC With December's 'Ancestors' Pack

Are you digging Assassin's Creed: Revelations and its updated multiplayer? Feel like you need some more character skins and taunts to really make the experience great?

Well, a little under a month after the current game's release, Ubisoft is dropping some new playable characters for the Assasin's Creed: Revelations' multiplayer modes. Curiously, they're opting to start with more characters and no new maps or scenarios for the first round of DLC. On December 13th, the new downloadable lineup, dubbed the "Ancestors Character Pack," will include "the swashbuckling Privateer, the devious siren Corsair, the battle-tested Brigand and the bloodthirsty Gladiator. Each character is personalized with unique taunts, weapons and stylized assassination moves."

So guys, how is the Assassin's Creed multiplayer? I regrettably missed Brotherhood but I have to imagine the dynamics of trying to murder dudes (and ladies, of course) online has to be interesting at least? Also, in your experience, how many of you have been getting these new characters for the previous game? Do they inject anything new into the overall experience? I'm asking here, because I'm curious as to the response to this kind of targeted DLC. Tell you what: you can let us know through our Facebook page or Twitter feed what you think about character packs in DLC.

The "Ancestors Character Pack" DLC will be available December 13th through PSN and Xbox Live for $3.99/320 MS Points respectively. The PC version of Assassin's Creed: Revelations will be available on November 29th.
