Second DLC Pack For ACII Arrives
The first piece of DLC, "Battle of Forli," is now available for download, and the second has just received a date.
Ubisoft says it'll be called "Bonfire of the Vanities" (uh...no relation to the book or the movie) and it's technically Sequence 13, so it'll fill in the remaining missing spaces in the storyline. The Sequence will include 10 total memories that follow Ezio's attempt to help Machiavelli in freeing Florence from the oppressive thumb of Savonarola. Here, Ezio will have to go after specific citizens who once took cues from Savonarola; obviously, we're talking about more assassination missions that will likely require a variety of different approaches. This will hit the PSN and Xbox Live on February 18 (that's like, today) and cost $4.99, the same price as the "Battle of Forli" DLC. And yes, you will indeed visit a few new places in "Bonfire of the Vanities;" this includes the Palazzo Medici and Santa Maria dei Frari. One of the most impressive elements of Assassin's Creed II is the setting; the intricate detailing and attention paid to every minute detail, so any new environments will be much appreciated by the fans.
Although some still say Ubisoft should've included both these DLC packages with the game when it launched last year, we have to remind you that ACII was absolutely one of 2009's best. You really can't take much away from the team's achievement.
