Ubisoft was light on details when it teased the first batch of downloadable content for Assassin's Creed II two weeks ago. At the time, the French publisher confirmed only that Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 gamers can rejoin Ezio in late January's Battle of Forli and then again in late February's Bonfire of the Vanities.
Today, Ubisoft offered additional details and pricing information on the two DLC packs. Battle of Forli and Bonfire of the Vanities slot in as Sequence 12 and 13 in the Assassin's Creed II continuum--the two "corrupted" data files the game skips just before the finale. The first new sequence will be available for $4 (MSP320), while the second add-on costs $5 (MSP400).
Battle of Forli sees Ezio teaming up with Niccolo Machiavelli and Caterina Sforza in an effort to withstand the Templars' siege of Forli. The DLC pack includes six new memories, and players will also be able to pilot Leonardo da Vinci's flying machine over Romagna.
Sequence 13--aka Bonfire of the Vanities--again sees Ezio teaming with Machiavelli as they work to subvert the evil machinations of the monk Savonarola. The add-on pack includes 10 memories to work through, a spring-jump ability for Ezio, and it also unlocks a new district in Florence.
