Assassin's Creed II DLC Raises Questions, Possibly Fills Gaps

Stephen Totilo writes:

"Forli is a small city depicted in Assassin's Creed II. It is based on a real place where real battles occured. The not-always-reliable Wikipedia dates a Battle of Forli as having taken place in the 13th century, which would overlap with some of the events referenced in some of the texts and bonus material in Assassin's Creed II. Those alluded-to events precede the new game and bridge it back to the first Assassin's Creed, explaining why the new game is set in Italy.

Could the first DLC take place then? Here's something I found about that 13th-century Battle of Forli via a quick Google search. Note the reference to Dante Alligheri who - keeping spoilers from ACII to a minimum - is referenced in the main game."

The story is too old to be commented.

that sux if true, why? because that means theyre forcing you to buy it if you wanna get the whole story... DLC shouldnt include parts of the main story..

I've been holding out. Looks like I've gotta spend more money on myself before Xmas. Thanks alot guys. :/

Yeah, the memory DNA cant be completed. They took out what's suppose to be in the game just to charge us for more money. Love the game, hate how they milk us with DLCs that's should have been on the disk all ready.

Sounds fun. What would be great is if during the Battle of Forli you were put in the middle of a fairly large scale battle and had to assassinate a commander or something. Assassin's Creed 2 is a really great game.

I agree with that but also think they should expand more on the "build a town" thing. I loved the idea but wished it went a bit deeper. Almost like a sim city type thing. At the moment I have too much money in the game and too little to spend on things. They need something good to use up my money

Nice going the way of Indie and the Crystal Skull Ubisoft.

It embraces its absurdity and puts it to great comedic effect. The ending is lolz.

How about bring the flying machine back? Dissapointed to only fly it for about 2 minutes.

Shadow Flare3301d ago

Yeah I agree with that aswell. They should have let ezio use it more

I knew this was coming when forli was left out. It's probably going to be the sequences that were lost. I'll say that British guy will say hey Desmond look what I unlocked.
