Deal of the Week: July 19th, 2010

By zigs00, 8 years ago
Great deals this week for big Assassin's Creed fans, not so much for Achievement fans. This week's DotW sees a price drop on both of Assassin's Creed II's DLCs and two of the game's items on the Avatar Marketplace. Like I said, nothing for those of you just wanting Achievements, but great offers for those AC fans wanting to play the 12th and 13th Sequences in ACII. As always, Xbox Live Gold members only!

Assassin’s Creed II Sequence 12: Battle of Forli is down from 320 MSP to 240 MSP. gives the following description of the content:
Battle of Forli expands the AC2 experience by delivering a missing piece of the storyline. Join Machiavelli and Caterina Sforza to defend Forli from the Orsi Brothers. Accomplish a daring rescue and prevent the Piece of Eden from falling into the hands of the Templars. Uncover new depths to the historical conspiracy by gaining access to six challenging new memories. Pilot Leonardo’s flying machine across Romagna.
