Rumour – Assassin’s Creed III to spawn extensive DLC, “season pass”
An alleged GameStop leak has apparently outed serious DLC plans for Assassin’s Creed III.
Kotaku received an image of what is said to be a message circulated to GameStop employees, as a thank you for meeting pre-order goals.
The letter states Ubisoft is busy “creating a complementary development team that will begin work on post-launch episodic content”.
Employees are asked to inform customers of a “season pass” on Assassin’s Creed III DLC, which will presumably give access to all DLC released during a set period of time. Interestingly, the pass is mentioned as an additional pre-order item, rather than appearing as a free bonus with pre-orders or special editions.
Both Brotherhood and Revelations received one major post-launch DLC pack – The Da Vinci Disappearance and the Lost Archives respectively – but otherwise DLC for the series has been largely contained to multiplayer expansions and launch day bonus content.
Assassin’s Creed III is due on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 at the end of October, and will arrive on PC before the end of the year.
