Reserve Assassin’s Creed II and get an old place to visit

Challenge rooms, gold weapons, downloadable maps, levels and now places. GameStop has the exclusives, folks. Might as well get used to it. This afternoon Joystiq found an interesting pre-order bonus for Assassin’s Creed II: with every online and offline reserve copy of the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 version, players will receive a code to download the Palazzo Medici. It’s optional content, apparently full of “treasure.”

This super exclusive bonus is only available while supplies last, so act fast if you’re interested in downloading a place where dinosaurs once roamed and famous painters like Donatello hung their tapestries.

Fun fact:  over-the-counter pre-orderers’ codes won’t be on any mere piece of paper. Oh no. They’ll be getting something called a “rave card.” Despite our seven hundred e-mails of inquiry, GameStop has yet to comment if the card plays crappy house music or glows in the dark.
