Ubisoft has announced new downloadable content for Assassin’s Creed III. Set in an alternate version of history, The Tyranny of King Washington is a single-player campaign that will be told through multiple downloadable content packs and features George Washington becoming king of America.
“As the revolution comes to a close, a new and most unexpected enemy emerges,” Ubisoft explains. “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.”
The story will be told through three episodic content packs, all of which will be available by purchasing the Assassin’s Creed III Season Pass, which will be available on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC for $29.99 (2400 Microsoft Points). The Pass will offer access to five content packs in all, including single-player content as well as maps and characters for multiplayer. According to Ubisoft, purchasing the Season Pass will account for a 25% savings versus buying packs individually, and Season Pass owners will have access to content one week ahead of other players.
“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 Ubisoft executive producer Sebastien Puel said of the Washington content. “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.’”
I’m not much of a gamer (I pretty much stick to SimCity4 and Civilization: Revolution), but I couldn’t not reblog this. That image of “King” George Washington is awesomely evil. Look closely at the center of his crown.
She is Wonder Woman!!!
me: *leaves room and walks into kitchen*
dad: hey she came out of her hole
dad: it’s like you live in a cave
dad: we haven’t seen you in a while
dad: it’s like you’re a gnome or troll or something
dad: you only leave to stock up on food
dad: oh and there she goes
dad: walking right past me with her food
dad: see you in a few days
At least it happens to other people too.
