If the all-white PlayStation Vita bundle and the new PS3 bundle wasn't convincing enough for you to pick up your copy of Assassin's Creed III, Ubisoft upped the ante this week by announcing a couple of interesting things in one short and sweet blog post. Taking a small page out of EA Sports' Season Ticket book, Ubisoft is introducing what they call the Season Pass.
The Season Pass will unlock access to all five up Ubisoft's DLC for the game, which will be released within six months after ACIII hits shelves on October 30th. This is very similar to how the Battlefield 3 Premium works, in that you are saving money by buying all of the DLC upfront, essentially getting a DLC or two for free. More importantly out of this announcement is that some of the DLC revolves around a story in which our hero George Washington gives into the temptation of becoming a King himself, which is sure to be an epic story told by the Creed team.
From the blog post,
The Season Pass will give you access to all five upcoming downloadable content packs which are slated for release within six months after launch. Assassin's Creed III downloadable content will feature an all-new single-player campaign told through three episodic content packs in which players will experience an alternate history of the American Revolution dubbed "The Tyranny of King Washington". 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 Revolution's greatest hero, George Washington succumbs to the temptation of infinite power a new King is born.
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 multi-player experience as well as other single-player missions.
All of this great extra content will only run you 2400 Microsoft Points, or $29.99 on the PlayStation Network. You can head over to the respective sites or to your local game stores to pick up your copy. Are you interested in the tale of Washington-gone-bad as much as I am?
