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.
