Assassin's Creed Brotherhood Patch Temporarily Breaks 360 Online Play; Animus 2.0 Patch Released

Xbox 360 owners eagerly awaiting the second piece of free downloadable content for Assassin's Creed Brotherhood were given a brief scare last night, as a title update for the game broke online multiplayer on the eve of the Animus 2.0 update.

CVG reports that the Xbox 360 patch was sent out to prepare the game for upcoming DLC and "some major updates." But server issues caused a multiplayer glitch, which has since been fixed. Downloading the current patch should leave you error-free.

And not a moment too soon. Today the free Animus 2.0 update hit Xbox Live and PlayStation Network, adding a Chest Capture mode, Templar Score feature and a new Pienza map. So far Ubisoft hasn't discussed future DLC plans, but the company has garnered some goodwill among gamers by offering two moderately sized multiplayer expansions free of charge.
