Assassin’s Creed II DLC to be released January 28

Ubisoft has tweeted that the first bit of Assassin’s Creed II DLC will be released on January 28.

Called the Battle of Forli, the add-on will run you 320 MS Points ($3.99/£2.72/€3.72) on Xbox Live and PSN.

In it, players defend the Forli base with Machiavelli and Caterina Sforza against the Orsi brothers through six new playable memories and must protect a Piece of Eden from the Templars. Leonardo’s flying contraption also returns, allowing you to fly across Romagna.

Bonfire of Vanities DLC hits next month, and includes 10 memories, Machiavelli, and takes place in Florence where Ezio must save the city from the monk Savonarola using a new move called the spring-jump.

Sounds like loads more stealthy stabbings are headed players way. Which is a good thing.

There’s a video over on Joystiq, featuring creative director Patrice Desilets chatting about the DLC. You should go have a watch.

Hopefully, you like Ezio, because the next Assassin’s Creed is expected to be released sometime before March 2011, and it’s a continuation of his story.

Sorry. No feudal Japan for you.

    Well, AHA until Ubisoft decides to be a bit more clear no one knows what it’s called. Hell it might be Assassin’s Creed 2.5 or Assassin’s Creed II: Enzio Vs The Pope for all we know at this point. It is suppose to be a trilogy, so they may decide to extend it more like chapters. Anyway, I’ll change it to avoid any confusion or speculation.

    I’m hoping you won’t actually play as Ezio… maybe he’s just old and you play as a relative?

    Either way i’m saddened about returning to renaissance Italy. I loved playing there in ACII but part of the draw of the franchise is exploring new settings not usually seen in games.

    Yeah it is a bit disappointing (abit like how I was disappointed that gta returned to liberty city instead of somewhere new for number 4).

    Although if we are going ezio again I do want to play as older ezio; that was pretty cool :)

    Yeah. Maybe you play as his grandson.

    Ezio, retired and living a peaceful life in Tuscany, reveled in stomping grapes from his vineyard for his prized wine. His grandson, now a strapping lad of 19 loved helping him when he was not “giving it” to the peasant women in town or gambling with his gang of ill doers.

    One day, Ezio, who had lived in relative obscurity for the past 60 years is paid a visit by some hired goons from the Vatican and is taken captive and tortured to death.

    In revenge, his grandson sets out to destroy the catholic church by revealing that John the Baptist was the true savior, and he is helped by an old and decrepit Da Vinci who just will not stop hitting on him for some reason.

    Machiavelli, who has done nothing but scream obscenities at those passing by his prison his cell window in Florence for the past 50 years escapes for one last hurrah against the Templars and their Vatican nemeses….

    SPOILER!

    (LALALALALALALALALALALALALALA)Would it actually be a different pope? Ezio didn’t kill what’s his face and he went on to be pope for longer.

    SPOILER OVER!
