Ubisoft® Announces Assassin's Creed® III Season Pass
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.
Assassin's Creed III will be available on PlayStation 3 and Microsoft's Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system on October 30 in North America and Latin America, Windows PC on November 20 and on Wii U™ from Nintendo on November 18. For Windows PC gamers, an Assassin's Creed III Deluxe Edition will also be available for digital download.
and i say that as someone who believed half life 2 is still the greatest FPS ever made. but it's still an issue that plagues a lot of games. horizon recently was terrible at this with the audio logs. (1 Hour ago)
but that's a common problem with maintaining player control even when characters are talking at you. you get distracted and start fannying around. (1 Hour ago)
@MrWhite: eh, i'll give you alex vance, but i don't really find any of the others particularly well written. and i'd argue throwing boxes while you're supposed to be engrosse in story is bad design. (1 Hour ago)
Sometimes the less you know about a character too = more interesting. Like G-Man. He pops up now and again being a creepy bastard. Thats what makes him interesting. (4 Hours ago)
Plus the fact you were messing about with boxes is a good thing, no? Game first, story and characters second is my motto. (4 Hours ago)
@KORNdog: Come on Korn, you know thats a horseshit statement you made. Before Naughty Dog and Bioware with Mass Effect, there was Alyx Vance. She may be a bit dated these days, but back then... (4 Hours ago)
@MrWhite: i guess i missed it. i was too busy running about all over the place throwing boxes around as my mute husk. lol (4 Hours ago)
