Assassin's Creed II DLC priced and dated: Now you can finish the game


Like with every game not called World of Warcraft, I played Assassin’s Creed II for a solid two or three hours, and it’s been collecting dust ever since then. This is relevant because, what, Ubisoft sold me (and all of you!) an incomplete game? Apparently! The game’s upcoming DLC, Sequence 12: Battle of Forli and Sequence 13: Bonfire of the Vanities, which go on sale in January and February, “complete” the game. At least they’re cheap: $3.99 and $4.99.

This is news to me because I never completed the game and had no idea about this corrupted DNA nonsense. Yes, it’s merely a presentation issue—Ubisoft could simply have added DLC like everyone else does, as “bonus” content, but to present it as though you’re completing the game by buying the DLC? Rubs me the wrong way.
