As anyone who finished the recently released Assassin's Creed II can attest to, Ubisoft has more stories to tell in its open-world action series. Gamers won't have to wait for Assassin's Creed III to get more action in the world of Altair and Ezio, as the publisher today detailed its first downloadable content plans for the second game in the series.

"Here are some florins. Two downloadable contents, please."

Ubisoft is prepping a pair of add-ons for Assassin's Creed II, with the first expansion (Battle of Forli) due in January, and the second one (Bonfire of the Vanities) following in February. The publisher hasn't announced details or pricing for either pack, except to specify that each downloadable content pack will require at least 1GB of hard drive space to install.

Assassin's Creed II shipped November 17 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 and sold 1.6 million copies worldwide in its first week. It arrived in stores alongside two portable spin-offs: Assassin's Creed II: Discovery for the DS and Assassin's Creed: Bloodlines for the PSP. A PC edition of Assassin's Creed II is due out in early 2010, and an iPhone tie-in was also released last month.
