Assassin's Creed 2
Assassin's Creed 2 To Get Secret Templar Locations Tomorrow As Well
Written By
View author's profile
As well as Bonfire of the Vanities touching down tomorrow, Ubi just tweeted that you'll also be able to get your hands on "3 Templar Secret Locations."

The three locations coming tomorrow are: Pallazo Medici, Santa Maria del Frari and Arsenal Shipyard.

Whilst Bonfire of Vanities can be purchased alone for 320 Microsoft points, these three locations can be added to the package for an extra 240 points.

No word on what they are or whether you can buy them separately, just know there's more DLC coming tomorrow.

Looks nice, I feel sorry for the people who shelled out loads for the White and Black versions of the game. The release of the Templar locations erodes somewhat into their exclusivity. Has to be expected though.

Greatly disappointed by the lack of 'exclusivity' of the collectors edition content. It'd be different if day-one/preorder purchasers got the content free, now a few months down the track it comes out for a nominal fee...

I was able to buy Arsenal Shipyard as a bonus download in the UK, and it wasn't worth it. I thought that it would beef up the story, or that you'll get a neat piece of armor...neither. Just a sack of useless florins and overhearing Ubisoft laugh all the way to the bank.

achievements really add a lot of a game especially DLC, it's nice to have a reward and something to show for what you've done.. beating DLC that has no achievements and then looking back a little time down the road it's like it never happened.

#23 and everyone else bitching about not having Achievements.

YES it IS an achievement site, so it would make sense for people to moan when there aren't any achievements for a certain games DLC. BUT if you look at the news for DLC coming out WITH achievements people STILL moan and bitch that there are achievements and that it ruins there completion. So really wheres the happy medium?

On a side note i'm with #13, WTF do the templar locations do, or are they they extra places to explore?

Mr Cuddly Aardvark, I believe the Templar locations are just places to explore and basically get more gold from/loot that's it really. Although it does offer a I guess you could call it a puzzle, not that hard I might say just some jumping and running.

I'm personally waiting until tomorrow to buy all 3 packs and then play through them and enjoy finishing the game as I enjoyed the game originally. DLC is a nice addition, but achievements aren't the end of the world

I still dont see the problem in wanting achievement score from DLC. If it is so insignificant, why not just add it to all DLC? At the end of the day, this site is visited by a large number of people in order to find out about achievements and how to get them. I think you should be a bit more aware of that and respectful to people who are - understandably - concerned as to whether or not the DLC has achievement points.

A third of visitors to X360a, roughly, who did the poll on the main site would buy DLC if they really did like the game, but most would like some achievements, at varying levels of necessity.

No achievements? No problem. Can't wait!

To those wondering about the bonus Templar locations, not worth it. They don't add to the story and only give you Florins. No weapons or dialogue. The platforming is pretty kick ass though. Up to you, but if you already have one or two from a preorder or collector's edition I wouldn't bother. I'm missing Arsenal Shipyard and have no desire to play it anymore.

I wouldn't care about the lack of achievements in these packs if Ubisoft had actually given us something new, or expanded on the game. We all knew that those "corrupted" memory segments were going to be DLC the day we got to them in our initial play through. Frankly, I was excited by the idea of more Assassin's Creed 2. However, considering we are just revisiting the same areas and characters again, achievements would have been a nice balance and incentive to actually pay the points for it. I'm sorry, but without the achievements, I'm just left with content that should have been included on the retail disc.

DLC doesn't always need achievements, but if you aren't going to bring anything truly new to the table, why should I be bother to accept it? But then again, at the end of the day

it's my decision not to buy the DLC, just as it is someone else's to buy it. And it is a shame, too, cause I really like Assassin's Creed 2.

And as far as the Templar locations

are concerned, if they were available only in the Collector's Edition of the game, it really should have stayed that way. I only bought the standard edition, so I don't have them. However, that is the point of a collector's edition. You buy them to have access to content others can't have. To offer them otherwise just make that less special and less valuable to the over all package. What's next? Are they going to offer the figure too? Hmmm...on second though, that might not be a bad idea. I could actually use that.

Anyways, sorry for the ranting. I'll get off my soapbox now. Happy gaming, everone!

Anyone who comes to this website that doesnt moan about no achievemnts also complain about them having achievements because it ruins their completionist score. Some people just wont play games for fun anymore. Anyone who refuses to buy it because of lack of achievements may as well just quit playing games cause it shouldnt be the reason you spend money/time.

I wont buy it without achievements for this reason: This content was obviously held back from the retail release and should have been in the retail.
Ubi is trying to charge us extra money for content we already paid for when we bought the retail.
If they want extra money, they've gotta give us something extra, ie achievements.

I'm personally sick of companies holding back content from the retail release then releasing it as DLC. Just be men and be honest about it. Release it all in the retail and charge more for the retail. That's what they really want to do, but are hiding behind "DLC".
Ubi and EA can eat my ass.

I know it sounds like im some sort of gamerscore whore type thing. But the dlc that first came was awful, and if you've just spent your ms points on awful dlc that didn't even give you a chance to boost up your gamerscore for the game its awful. So same for me, if there are no acheivements im not getting it because of how poor the first set of dlc was for the game

HaHa are you serious? You won't pay for dlc that is an hour long unless it has achievements? But you will pay for extra numbers next to your GT...

"beating DLC that has no achievements and then looking back a little time down the road it's like it never happened."

Because you have a horrible memory? Do you also need an achievement in life to remember where you parked your car? Without that achievement you might end up thinking you walked instead of drove.

Microsoft can make so much money off of you all, sell you 200 gamer score for the dashboard at $10 each. Sell 200gs/$10 monthly. No content, just gamerscore for $$ and you all would eat it up.

15 mins? What are you smoking, the first DLC was NOT 15 mins long. It took me an hour to run through it, going at a reasonable pace. I've heard times from 45 mins to 60 mins, but 15 mins is way over exaggerating.

Little dissapointed that the templar lairs are sold seperately, but at least they reduced the price of Bonfire to 320 like the first DLC. I have 370 points on my account and I REALLY didn't want to have to buy more just to get the extra 30.

im a gamerscore ho,to a point,i love playing games but achievments are a big part of it for sure,they give a game much more replayability,i remember playing ps2 games and beating them in 5 hours and being kinda bummed cause it was short or watever,also even if someone does play strictly for achievments,like people who play childrens games for instance just 2 get a quick 1000,so what,dont affect me,game away,enjoy!!!

You know guys I completely disagree with those of you who keep saying that Ubisoft screwed everyone by leaving out the two memory sequences. The retail game is a complete game. The gaps in the story were not essential to the MAIN story. You still get 20+ hours of content in a GREAT game for $60. That's a great deal.
How anyone can play through ACII and then complain just because Ubisoft offers a little more content (for a lot better price then most DLC) is beyond me.

People that complain about paying more are almost as stupid as those that complain about achievement hunters. They seem to forget that Microsoft, not Ubisoft, is in charge of the pricing. If Microsoft wants to up the price, either it happens or the DLC is not released. To people complaining about achievement hunters, I will quote #23 in saying you are "fucking idiots".

OT - I can't wait for this release, I'll take any chance I get to pop in the AC2 disc again.

@23 - it's actually Xbox360achievements.ORG, not .com. Sorry just had to point that out.

OT: I am sick of this crap that games went up to $60 for this generation of system but yet game developers give us 90% of the game and then say oh if you want the rest you have to pay another $10. I think that if they are going to give us 90% of the game then they should either include the DLC for free with new games or sell the game for $50. What are they going to do next, just give us the map and then make us buy each mission? I swear if Ubisoft does the same thing to Splinter Cell, I will NEVER buy another Ubisoft game new again (I will buy future Assassin's Creed games used so Ubisoft doesn't get a dime of my money off of it).

And also if Ubisoft is doing this because they aren't making any money off some of there games, here is an idea: QUIT MAKING ALL THESE STUPID WII AND DS GAMES. Gamers don't want 5 Petz or jewelery designer games a year. Stick to the games that put you out there (Tom Clancy games, PoP).

@23 this site has actually gradually moved from solely an achievements site to a general xbox 360 news site so w/e. If people want to express their feelings on things they should feel free to do so.

Arsenal Shipyard was the Best Buy pre-order incentive that I missed and hopefully can purchase this item individually. I love the story of this game!

I don't care, I find this game very entertaining and will get the DLC. Except maybe for the Templar Locations, I got them in the Black Edition, which was worth it to get the Templar Locations early. I think I only got 2 of them, though...oh well...

Ok, just read everyone's comments and felt i need to put my ten-cents in... Does anyone actually remember playing games for fun and entertainment and something to do on a rainy day? I do! Achievements should be there to enhance a game, but not be the only reason to buy it. I whore with the best of them but can honestly say every game i've played on my profile i've enjoyed (even the guilty plesures). Dissappointed at Ubi for charging for something you should have got when you payed full whack for one of their game but at least they admitted to it, how many games companies out there do then honestly? How much dlc is left out of a game to make some quick easy cash off people later... especially the big release titles. Everyone's entitled to their opinion on here, but please people GROW UP and

If there are no Achievements with this DLC I am really gonna be upset! I kept this game especially so I could download the DLC and get more Achievements from it. I could have sold this game a month ago when it was going for over $40 on ebay, now its going fr $25!

Yeah as much as i love my cheevy's, it wouldn't stop me from actually purchasing a game/DLC. Acheivments or not, i'll definatley be getting this.

What has me pissed off, is the fact that i already have these god dam templar locations, they were the bonus for the Black and White editions. So I'm basically having to pay for them again, even though i've already completed them.

If someone wants cheevs and refuses to buy a piece of DLC why does that bother some of you so much?? Are you part of the DEV team? Why take it sooo personal? Chillax all...
And personally I am not going to buy it without cheevs. BUT... this is not because I am a gs whore, it is because while the game was good, it is over. The DLC doesn't allow me to get anything new. It doesn't fill in any major plot gaps. It doesn't further the story. I would have paid for Fallout 3 DLC without cheevs because the game rocked, and it GAVE ME SOMETHING NEW! As well as furthering the story, (in some of them). MW2, I would buy DLC because new maps or Spec Ops scenarios would be something new. This is just the same old same old repackaged and recharged. Also, I have plenty of other AWESOME games that are givi

Also, I have plenty of other AWESOME games that are giving me GS and so why not play them?? I am late on the Borderlands bus, ME2 still needs some lovin, and I am waiting to get Dante's Inferno. Not to mention that the greatest game of all time is coming out in less than a month! Final Fantasy XIII. So... that's why, if there are other games that do give me something, then forget a no cheev DLC... it's usually not worth it.

Little heads up would be nice about the cut off guys... ;)

Wow extra locations sweetness! I didn't have the dough at the time to buy anything other then the normal version. Wish they sold them individual though, I already have one of the three, got it with the pre-order from Gamestop.

I, for one enjoy the new stuff to do. I have nothing left to do. All feathers, all treasures (even the mountains), all missions, DNA sequence completed. I tend to think this is UBi's was of keeping people interested before release of AC3. The one bad thing is their marketing for it. I finally found the code in my box yesterday when packing it up and getting ready to give it to my bro-in-law. Almost lost content...

BTW, even NES games were like $30-$50 back in the day so stop complaining.

i buy all ubisoft games used. i will never pay them a penny if i can avoid it. DLCs? if there's no reason to i won't buy them. if they give me extra story AND some interesting weapons or equipment then i'll buy.
sod the cheevos. more equipment/weapons, make story bigger, begrudgingly i'll pay MS pts.
otherwise? ubisoft? piss off
