|(hx) 07:45 AM EDT - Oct,04 2012 |
| Ubisoft has announced the first DLC for Assassin's Creed 3, titled 'The Tyranny of King George'.
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, the
greatest hero of the revolution, George Washington, 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 must dethrone a tyrant he once called
friend. Today, Ubisoft announces the Assassin's Creed III Season Pass
offer, granting access to all five upcoming downloadable content packs
to gamers owning the original game on PlayStation 3 computer
entertainment system, Microsoft's
Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system, and Windows PC.
Assassin's Creed III downloadable content will feature "The Tyranny of
King Washington," an all-new single-player campaign told through three
episodic content packs that lets gamers experience an alternate history
of the events following the American Revolution.
"History is our playground – and AC teams have always loved playing
with historical facts and their consequences as a way to better
understand a time period," said Sebastien Puel, Executive Producer at
Ubisoft. "While Assassin's Creed III concentrates on history as it
happens, we wanted to take some liberties with this DLC and tell you
how things ‘could have happened.'"
In addition to this all-new single player experience, Assassin's Creed
III downloadable content will feature new maps and characters for an
even more expansive multiplayer experience.
Assassin's Creed III Season Pass will be available for purchase for
2400 Microsoft Points on Xbox LIVE or $29.99 on the PlayStation
Network. It can be pre-ordered at GameStop and Best Buy.
The Assassin's Creed III Season Pass releases within six months after
the game launch at a 25% savings over the individual pack prices. Also,
Season Pass owners will have access to the first downloadable content
pack one week before other gamers.
