Today, Ubisoft announced the Assassin’s Creed III Season Pass offer, granting access to all five forthcoming DLC packs to players owning the original game on PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, Microsoft’s Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system, and Windows PCs.
Assassin’s Creed III 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. 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.
“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 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, the Assassin’s Creed III downloadable content will feature new maps and characters for an even more expansive multiplayer experience as well as other single-player missions.
The Assassin’s Creed III Season Pass provides gamers with all five forthcoming DLCs, scheduled for release within six months after the game launch, for a discounted price of $29,99. The Season Pass is now available for purchase on PlayStation®3 in the PlayStation®Store, and will be available from October 30 on Xbox 360® and from November 22 for PCs.
All Assassin’s Creed III DLCs will also be available for the Wii UTM.
Set against the backdrop of the American Revolution in the late 18th century, Assassin’s Creed III introduces a new hero, Ratohnhnhaké:ton, of Native American and English heritage. Adopting the name Connor, he becomes the new voice for justice in the ancient war between the Assassins and Templars. Gamers become an Assassin in the war for liberty against ruthless tyranny in the most stylized and fluid combat experiences in the franchise to date.
Assassin’s Creed III spans the Revolutionary War, taking gamers from the vibrant, untamed frontier and bustling colonial towns to the intense, chaotic battlefields where George Washington’s Continental Army clashed with the imposing British Army and the tumultuous high seas. Assassin’s Creed III will feature unprecedented scope and scale.
Assassin’s Creed III will be released on October 30 for Xbox 360® and PlayStation®3, November 22 for PCs and November 30 for the Wii UTM.
