Second Assassin's Creed II DLC emerges February 18

Bonfire of the Vanities intros 10 new missions, Florence district to Ubisoft's acclaimed action adventure for $5 later this week.

Assassin's Creed II has been skulking into gamers' living rooms at an alarming rate. Last week, Ubisoft said the Renaissance-era action adventure had shipped 8 million units worldwide since its November launch for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. To keep gamers entertained by protagonist Ezio's cold-blooded machinations, Ubisoft has lined up a pair of Assassin's Creed II add-on packs, the first of which, Battle of Forli, went online late last month.

Today, Ubisoft said the second batch of downloadable content, titled Bonfire of the Vanities, will be available through Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network on February 18. As previously announced, Bonfire of the Vanities will cost $5 (MSP400), $1 more than the Battle of Forli add-on.

Ezio can be counted on to bring the marshmallows.

For the extra dollar, gamers will at least see a bit more content. The DLC includes 10 memories to work through, up from the six that were included in Battle of Forli. Ezio will also be granted the new spring-jump ability, and the pack unlocks a new district in Florence for players to explore.
