It was confirmed today that Assassin’s Creed III will include an option to purchase a season pass. The season pass will include all DLC for Assassin’s Creed III and will be available to purchase separately from the game. The season pass is included with the Gold Edition of Assassin’s Creed III, but we can now confirm that it will also be available separately after the game has launched.
There have been rumors of a Assassin’s Creed III season pass for a few months now, when a leaked letter stated that Ubisoft had a dedicated team working on DLC for the game and that a season pass would be available. The season pass will run you $30, but will save you approximately 25% off buying each piece of DLC individually.
As of right now the season pass will include at least one single player story based DLC where you will fight a evil George Washington in addition to the multiplayer DLC with new characters and maps. Season pass owners will also be the first ones to play the DLC, because the very first piece of DLC will given to season pass holders a week ahead of everybody else.
As for the evil George Washington DLC, Ubisoft just announced one of the first pieces of Assassin’s Creed III DLC will be a alternate reality where power corrupts Washington and Connor must end his “reign of terror.” The DLC will be released over three episodes, and all three episodes will be included with the season pass.
Executive producer Sebastien Puel had this to say:
“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, While Assassin’s Creed 3 concentrates on history as it happens, we wanted to take some liberties with this DLC and tell you how things ‘could have happened.’”
Normally I don’t buy a lot of DLC, but the thought of having to face an evil George Washington does sound like a lot of fun, I may just have to pick up this DLC. How many of you out there buy season passes and do you find them a good investment or do you feel you end up with more DLC that you don’t like over the DLC you do like?
