Since Assassin’s Creed II, the stealth- and parkour-oriented games have featured downloadable content for each main entry. Assassin’s Creed III is set to be no different, and Ubisoft has announced new details regarding its plan for the game’s downloadable content.
Five separate add-ons will be released for the game, with each offering new single-player and multiplayer content to play. While individual pricing for the add-ons has yet to be announced, Ubisoft states that purchasing each DLC separately will, in total, set buyers back $40. However, the company will be offering a season pass for the game that grants access to all DLC a week before it is available to other players. The season pass will cost $29.99 on the PlayStation Network and PC, while it will cost 2400 Microsoft Points on Xbox Live. The season pass will not be available on Wii U; however, all downloadable content for the game is still set for release on the platform.
In addition to announcing the season pass, Ubisoft has revealed that the game’s first single-player DLC will be titled “The Tyranny of King Washington.” In this add-on, players attempt to remove George Washington from his throne as the king of the American colonies. The add-on’s story is not meant to be canon to the series, and is merely a “what if” scenario that takes place after the game’s ending.
Assassin’s Creed III is set for release on October 30 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The Wii U version will be released on November 18 alongside the console’s launch, while the PC version will be released on November 24.
