Assassin’s Creed 3: Season Pass, DLC detailed
Assassin’s Creed 3 will have a Season Pass, as previously reported, and Ubisoft has probided information on the matter along with the running theme of the games DLC – which tells an alternate history to the fledgling nation of America.
The Season Pass will grant purchasers access to five forthcoming DLC packs for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
Downloadable content will feature “The Tyranny of King Washington”, an all-new single-player campaign available as a continual episodic story through three DLCs that will “let players experience an alternate history of the American Revolution.”
Here’s the synopsis:
“It’s 1783. As the revolution comes to a close, a new and most unexpected enemy emerges. Driven by the desire to secure the fate of the colonies, George Washington, the greatest hero of the revolution, succumbs to the temptation of infinite power. The new King is born and his reign leaves no one untouched. To return freedom to the land, our new hero Connor must dethrone a tyrant he once called friend.”
In addition to the new single player experience, the downloadable content will feature new maps and characters for multiplayer as well as other single-player missions.
“History is our playground, and Assassin’s Creed teams have always loved playing with historical facts and their consequences as a way to better understand a time period.” said Sebastien Puel, executive oroducer at Ubisoft.
“While Assassin’s Creed 3 concentrates on history as it happens, we wanted to take some liberties with this DLC and tell you how things ‘could have happened.’”
Assassin’s Creed 3 DLC is scheduled for release during a six month period after the game launch, and the Season Pass will run you 2400 Microsoft points and £23.99 XBL and PSN, respectively.
The Season Pass is now available for purchase on the PS Store and will be available from October 31 on Xbox 360 and from November 22 for PCs.
All Assassin’s Creed 3 DLCs will also be available for the Wii U.
