Assassin’s Creed 2 DLC Targets Price and Date

December 18, 2009Written by Thomas Williams


Ubisoft wasted no time in announcing new DLC for their blockbuster title Assassin’s Creed 2 earlier this month, though they didn’t reveal too much about the two announced packs. New information has been released and fans of the series will be able to continue Ezio’s story starting early next year.

For those of you who have beat the game, then you’ll remember that two sequences, 12 and 13 were ‘corrupted’. It seems that these faulty sequences were merely held back for DLC.

The first DLC, sequence 12, ‘The Battle for Forli’ will be released in late January with a price tag of $3.99 and will have Ezio teaming up with Machiavelli and Caterina Sforza as they battle against the Orsi Brothers. There’s more to the story, of course, as your goal is to keep a Piece of Eden from those nasty Templars. All in all, there will be six new missions and one that features the return of Leonardo’s flying machine!

The Second DLC, Sequence 13, ‘ The Bonfires of the Vanities’,  is due to hit in late February. Ezio will be return to Florence to take on the monk Savonarola and his carde. As fellow writer Zack Islam wrote earlier this month, ‘The Bonfires of the Vanitites’ refers to the  ‘historical event, which took place in 1497, in Florence, Italy, where the burning of thousands of objects which indulged one in sinning took place, including art and books which was carried out by the supporters of the Dominican Priest Girolamo Savonarola.’ Sounds like some fun is to be $4.99, which will include 10 new missions and will also grant Ezio a new spring-jump move along the way.

Don’t forget that each of the DLC packs will be 1GB in size, so make sure you have the HDD space before you go download either one of these. How do you readers feel about this? Will all the major titles hitting in January and through out February, will you have the time or money to continue Ezio’s battle against the Templars? Let us know in the comments below.
