Different regions and consoles may update at different times.

Just check your consoles store at the normal market update time or day (SEN store can update on different days to the Xbox)

It will be when your store updates, which depends on console and region, so just check it at the normal time - the content will release with the rest of the store updates.

Normally once a week.

SEN store (PS3) updates on a different day to Xbox in some regions though, so you need to check your local Sony Playstation site for details, they normally put it on the blog when they do updates, if your new to the console, store.

If you are on Xbox 360 in the EMEA region (well, the EU part of that anyway), then it should be available on your dashboard, or via Xbox.com

As Shade pointed out, different regions update at different times, that is not down to Ubisoft.

US PSN users can expect to download it later today when their store updates. EU PSN users will have it either late tonight or tomorrow as planned when THEIR store updates. Patience. Thank you.

It's funny, though the gameplay is much similar to Desmond's Journey (though a little more dynamic) I feel the experience is much different. It sets a completely different mood. As for the information, well, some of the stuff is crystal clear, but some of the other stuff is very very puzzling indeed.

As much as I've been looking forward to it, like all of the rest of you, I probably won't be downloading it until my direct deposit goes through at the end of this week. Kinda sucks cuz I'm gonna be seeing spoilers all over the place, and I am horrible about staying away from them. Lightrey has already managed to further peak my interest with his lol.

I downloaded and played a little bit before I left the house this morning. I played for more than an hour and only finished Memory 3, but I can be very slow with my playthroughs. It's definitely pretty much just like the Desmond's Journey gameplay for anyone interested, but a little more refined with some slightly nicer puzzles. There are a few details I thought were nice that people might want to know that I don't think spoil the story, but I'll put spoiler warnings anyway.

*** THE LOST ARCHIVE GAMEPLAY SPOILERS ***

The DLC has its own menu on the game's main menu, called "The Lost Archive", underneath "Story Mode" and "Multiplayer". You launch it from there. I checked the portals on Animus Island and they have not changed, so you don't access anything from there. So far, there's been no story reason given for why we have access to these memories. Are we playing as Desmond reliving Clay's memories? If so, why is Desmond in the Animus after finding his Sync Nexus? Through Memory 3, Clay is not narrating the memories the way Desmond was narrating his.

The DLC is like its own little mini-game version of the main game. So it has its own menu with its own DNA timeline and Database. You go straight to the next memory when finishing one, but you can replay them from the DNA timeline. Each memory has a "Full Synchronization" requirement, which is simply to collect things in the level (so far). There are things called "decipher fragments" that look just like the multiplayer emblems from Desmond's Journey, and a few other collectables in the levels, and you're told how many are in each level to help you find them. The decipher fragments each unlock part of a 20-part picture in the Database which looks rather mysterious so far, but I have no clue what it is yet and don't want to spoil it anyway.

I like the inclusion of the Database to track content that has been revealed. The other collectables I have found so far have Database entries as well, so there are a few things to read. Also, as you finish each memory a new Database entry is added called "Voice Memos" or something like that, which is a transcription of the audio that played during that memory. That is a nice touch.

Anybody interested in Clay should get it, and you should buy it anyway to support the game. There will always be people b!tching about how bad everything is.
