Ubisoft Prepping Two Large DLC Packs For Assassin's Creed II
Assassin's Creed II is guaranteed to give you plenty of bang for your buck, as the lengthy adventure could net around 40 hours if you wished to complete every last possible objective. But we can always use more of this amazing production, can't we?
Ubisoft has lifted the lid on two sets of downloadable content they plan to release for the game, one of which will release in January and the other will follow in February. The first DLC pack will be called the Battle of Forli and the second will be dubbed Bonfire of the Vanities. Now, here's where things start to get interesting: first of all, Ubisoft is telling players to keep 1 GB of free space available for each pack, and that's fairly significant (it's about double the size of a Modern Warfare map pack). In other words, these are large pieces of DLC and as some players already know, there are certain sections of the game that remain locked throughout the main storyline. If you want to read up on the relevant histories, feel free to visit Kotaku, and then decide for yourself what we might see in these extra pieces of content. Remember that Bonfire of the Vanities was a real event that happened in Florence in 1497, and Florence just so happens to be the first city in the game. Again, though, you'll see that various parts of the city remain inaccessible for now...it's a little frustrating.
We should have prices and solidified dates before too long but for the time being, we're plenty excited. This is one game that just never seems to get old, so more missions and quests will be most welcome.
