Incoming second Assassin's Creed 2 DLC

Incoming second Assassin's Creed 2 DLC

After a very disappointing - understatement - first DLC, Ubisoft is about to release Bonfire of the Vanities, the last extension of Assassin's Creed 2. This second DLC will allow the player to discover a whole area of Florence that was locked in the original game, which some of you will certainly find very convenient. Will it be worth the price this time? Well, I guess we will find out soon enough as it is planned for release on February 18.

It's so nice to know that both DLCs are included in the PC release without additional cost. :)

I'll wait until they are sold together at lower cost. Too many good games to play the coming weeks.

No it's not on the disc. It's a ~1GB download.

I finished the first DLC in about an hour. I was not happy.

I really wish parts of games were't cut out so they can be added as DLC. Yes I know it makes them money but AC is a game I love but I can't afford to pay ontop of the £40 I paid for the game, to play cut out chapters lol. Just a shame really.. I guess ill watch video's of it instead :P

Do you really think you'd see this content in the game if DLC didn't exist?

I very much doubt it. Most developers legitimately want to make new content, and often plan what they'd like to do far in advance. Especially for popular titles like AC2. Time and money restrictions often mean that alot of concepts are cut from games. With DLC, development of these concepts can continue, post-release.

So it's to unlock content that was already on the disc?
Thanks for convincing me never to touch this POS
The developers really know how to put the Ass in AssCreed

@Diftwood:

I think he is just being sarcastic.

At least I hope he is...

About the game


What's up?
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth EA announced today that a Battlefront II story trailer for the single player campaign trailer is coming tomorrow.. nice timing (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And while there may be a nugget of truth in there, people are DEFINITELY jumping to conclusions. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @Melmoth: Yea.. but what's not as obvious to people is that their PR wasn't for the benefit of consumers. It was spinning this for their shareholders. (1 Hour ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @GriftGFX: that's a pretty obvious thing he says. If visceral were doing great progress at a single player game, EA would probably just ask them to change the direction, not fire them. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And as usual.. our analysis is dreadfully misinformed anyway (taking this back to Visceral): [url] (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I'm not as pessimistic about where things are headed. I think a lot of stuff is better in regards to this problem vs. a decade ago. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @MrWhite: Time for what? People are noticing stuff that impacts game design more than ever. That's not a new problem. Add-on content of any flavor has presented this problem through decades now. (4 Hours ago)
