I bought the season pass. Yes, I know I am an impulsive idiot. I play pretty much everything in the series on release and I knew I would be getting both Dead Kings and China when they came out, so figured I would save a bit of money and get the bonus items for the main game. I have really enjoyed every game in the series, Ubisoft had generally earned my trust on the DLC front, in spite of the odd misstep.
I own Black Flag, Watch Dogs and Far Cry 4 already. I have no interest in The Crew or Just Dance 2015, I don't really play driving games much and I don't like any of the music in Just Dance 2015. I know Rayman Legends is a good game, but I really have not interest in it, and I could buy it brand new online for about 2/3 the cost of the season pass in the UK if I really wanted to.
I understand Dead Kings is going to be free to everyone. Is Chronicles: China going to be free to season pass purchasers also, and full price for everyone else? Or will season pass purchasers have to pay for China full price?
Because as it stands, if season pass purchasers don't get China for free, I have paid for the cost of a season pass and am getting a game I do not want and would not have purchased otherwise, and could have purchased for less, and a few throwaway bonus items in Unity. Which, given the cost of the season pass on the UK PSN store, is making me pretty mad.
Even if I do get China for free, I assume that its full price will be less than I paid for the season pass, which leaves me having spent money I would not have otherwise spent.
Note to Ubisoft: you've probably screwed yourselves out of me buying a season pass for AC5 next year.
