Discounted Offer Features All Upcoming Downloadable Content, Including “The Tyranny of King George”

SAN FRANCISCO — October 3, 2012 — 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 PlayStationNetwork. 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.

All Assassin’s Creed III Downloadable Content will also be available for the Wii UTM.

The thing with Lego games is that its an extremely repetitive experience. Nothing ever changes except for the characters you control. That in itself also usually means its only a cosmetic change.

@MegaLombax said: That seems to be making COD a shit-load of money ;-)

True. But COD has a bit of variety over Lego games i.e. different guns, upgrades as you play more, set pieces. Not that I'm much of a COD fan, but to me COD gives you new things to tinker around with the more you play, something that I think the Lego games lack. Heck, one of the reasons why I didn't like Lord of the Rings: Conquest was because there was no sense of progression apart from the storyline.

Also I heard this one's gonna have RPG elements.

I'm hoping this is true.

ELEMENTS, there won't be leveling up and xp and such, but you will get some new itemes now and then, and you can "craft" some new armor and weapons. Its quite far from normal rpg stuff, so don't get your expectations up.

It's still very much like the other lego games, like lego batman 2, there will be normal levels (18 i think) with a large open world hug with some activities and puzzles to play around with.

The image you posted is the outfit you will get, the concept art that looks more like Connors normal outfit was scrapped.

It always comes with the gun I believe.

Nothing hes said has bothered me thus far. Good on him for not being super sensitive and cencored.

Things were greta for a while with the flight club and dave fortress, then everything stopped it feels like. that ontop of the fact that normal GB content hasent been much lately is abit anoying.

They keep 'complaing' theres no new games, while they could do QL's of games theyve not done it on for whaetver reason, or do older obscurer games.

I'm looking forward to more random pc game. once Dave isnt all up in making the new site, im sure thing will get better.

I'm keeping my subscription another year.

Would this mod ever have been finished either way?

I thought almsot anything artistic was somewhat llegal as long as you dont profit from it, or devalue the brand on purpose. A mod is like fanart. no?

That said, I'm waiting for more information to be released on the game before deciding anything. If its going to be another cute version of established titles, I'd probably give it a pass. If they give some value to progression (apart from collecting the Lego bits), that might change things.

There will be some value in progression, Aragorn will get Anduril with new powers, Galadriels gifts will no doubt give u more powers, magical cloaks, elven ropes, light of earendil etc. If you were looking for gaining levels and such then youre in no luck x]
