But seriously though, does anyone know when the black edition maps are coming out as DLC and being available to everyone?

sorry but exclusive doesnt mean anything these days except maybe that you get it first, EVERYONE NEEDS this to get 100% sync, why would they sell it like that, if you have ps3 then yes u got 6 extra weapons not on 360 but that is only real exclusive

It's just all these folks complaining that their game is 'incomplete' and they want the extra content now (and in some cases, free to boot!) when there are those of us that paid extra specifically to get it 'exclusively'.

Sorry, but if sequence 14 had been missing from the game, then they'd have a point, but the Templar Lairs are no more crucial to the main storyline of the game than, say, the Courier missions. Yes they are kinda like the Assassin Tombs, but you don't get anything funky at the end, no cool weapon, no seal, just a bunch of money chests like the end of the Family Crypt.... and who doesn't have more money than they know what to do with long before they reach 90% synchronisation?

I'm looking forward to them because being a perfectionist I'm irritated at the 97.6% sync!

I'm not expecting them to be free at all, infact I'd be willing to pay because of those who had to pay extra in the first place, it would be unfair on them otherwise.

I also appreciate how annoying it would be for those to purchased exclusive editions for the exclusive content to be available within a month of it being released. My thoughts is that it wouldn't be available before the new year... I just wish they would tell us a date!!

Please!!

I want those maps too just because I NEED to complete this game 100% I have everything, and that's something I almost never bother to do in games, the only games I've done everything possible on has been RE5, AC, Final Fantasy XII (yeah farming all those items, quitting to get random things of chests, beating everything in game, reaching level 99 with every character etc.) and AC2 but I need the maps to get 100% so I want those maps no matter what, and yes, I'm willing to pay for those maps.
incredibly enough I have never payed to get DLC, if it's not free, then I don't get it, however AC2 and RE5 gave me so much fun, and were so awesome to me, that I have decided that Next year I'll buy both AC2 DLCs, and the RE5 DLC.
AC2 is my favorite game ever, so it's only natural wishing to play more.

I have to agree, I've never been this overwhelmed with a game that I've been willing to run around for hours collecting everything there is to collect! But now I've got it all... and I've nothing left to do but play the game again... which I'm on my 4th time around already!

I really can't wait for the DLC to come out just so I've got something new to do!

It is very shiny... both in a literal and figurative sense!

The one with the black edition is nice though, if you're into that sort of thing.

These shouldn't be released at all. Exclusive to Black edition should stay that way. There was a tonne of advertising about the black edition and the advantage of getting it, and if that changes you can kiss good bye any creditability that UBI Soft will have for future "EXCLUSIVE" releases.

PC version isn't even out yet, so all those who have pre-ordered the black edition will certainly be annoyed if this is released, specially before they even have the game in their hands.

That's pretty selfish to say that! I'll bet if you didn't have the AC2 Black edition you probably wouldn't be saying that! But i agree about the PC users!

If they are going to be released, and i really hope they do because i want to play them, then they will be released well after the PC is out! Maybe in Q2 or Q3 next year! or maybe even Q4 but i doubt it will be that long!

I have the master edition and well, just another treasure hunting so really - no big deal at all. So calm down, fellas. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif Go stick more poison blades into those annoying musicians - that should chill you out.

I'm sure if I owned the Black Edition (which, for the record, I am considering buying after christmas) I would feel the same way IF (and a big if) people were able to complete the game without the exclusives.

I'm sure if those of us were able to complete 100% without these extra locations none of us would be that fussed.

I'm fairly certain that it has been confirmed in interviews with Ubi that the bonus maps are going to be available to everyone at some point in the future as DLC.

The problem with keeping the extra content solely exclusive to the people who bought the Black Edition is that The Black Edition wasn't available in some (actually quite a few) territories so there are people who wanted it, and would have bought it, but couldn't do so.

I bought the most complete (expensive) version that was available in my territory but am still missing the shipyards map so I look forward to being able to pick this up as DLC since I would have bought the black edition if I could have.

The problem is that gaming companies offer different packages in different countries (or sometimes even at different stores in the same country). It's a stupid practice that seems to **** off as many people as it pleases and is easily fixed by offering uniform collector's editions across the board.
