Assassin’s Creed 3: Season Pass, DLC detailed

Wednesday, 3rd October 2012 17:53 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

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.

    This actually sounds pretty cool. I like the idea of several DLC packs tying back into a single story. Thumbs up!

    You know, I remember those all games full of secrets and cheats. Those games which your friends told about some real hidden levels or modes that you have to unlock. Those contents that were already built in the disc, waiting for you so they can see the light. Real dev´s gifts that let you expand the game for hours. Those completed campaigns that unlocked new characters histories with new movements and controls, like Tenchu 2.

    Those days were gone forever.

    Also, it gives a bunch of french guys the chance to shit on the US :P Bonus and what not.

    Considering that Washington had to be forced to assume the presidency, it feels a little wrong. It’s like making a game were Martin Luther King becomes the grand master of the Ku Klux Klan.

    There was actually a fairly strong call for Washington to be appointed King of America before it was decided to go with the more democratic option…which is amusing, considering how miserable Washington was after his term and how much the people generally hated him by that point.

    @8 Sorry, but that’s an urban legend.

    The revolution was always aimed at getting as far away from monarchy as possible.

    It’s nice to think that so little has changed since then though. 4-8 years and everybody hates your fucking guts when you leave :P
