Video: Assassin's Creed II - Battle of Forli Hits PSN This Week
Sony's Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has posted up a video on the PlayStation Blog today introducing Assassin's Creed II - Battle of Forli which hits PSN this week.
To quote: If you played through Assassin's Creed II this winter (Platinum Trophy right here, folks), then you may recall there were a couple of corrupted sequences that Desmond wasn't able to access in the Animus.
Well, this week, you'll be able to play through the first of two "repaired" sequences, as The Battle of Forli hits the PSN on Thursday.
Producer Frederic Lefrancois (you remember him, right?) has some more details on the DLC:
The battle of Forli is an actual battle where the Orsi brothers attacked the city of Forli which was ruled at the time by Caterina Sforza. Ezio and Machiavelli - leader of the Florence mercenaries - make their way to the citadel of Forli with the apple of Eden to request protection from Caterina Sforza.
As they approach, something goes wrong: Forli is under attack! Borgia guards are laying siege to the city. The attack seems to be lead by the two dreaded Orsi brothers. Players will have to protect the city alongside Sforza and the great Machiavelli who they have met towards the end of sequence 11. The flying machine will also be accessible in the city/region of Forli to players.
Oh wait, did I make you read about history? You can just watch this video instead :-)
The Battle of Forli DLC hits PSN tomorrow for $3.99. The second AC2 DLC, Bonfire of the Vanities is scheduled for late February, will run you $4.99, and will *not* feature an early-90s Tom Hanks.
Always good to see when one of my favorite games gets DLC content!!!
Looking forward to seeing this one within the next few days...
...be better if it were free but I love the series so much I don't really care either way to be completely honest. Just trying to show some love, I know if it were me i'd appreciate similar treatment, but this is also stuff that actually interests me too so double win for us both!
Thanks again, good info to know and very kind of you to share.
It's good to see that AC2 is coming out with DLC. I honestly have a hard time replaying games that have a linear storyline, and usually only go back to them for online purposes or new DLC. Will be getting this when it comes out, and looking forward for some more slashing fun (Favorite moves were always stealing polearms xD)
