Pretty low of Ubi to release pre-order DLC as a part of the season pass. I know people who will have bought these separately of eBay and would have spend £30 on all of it, now Ubi are releasing it instead of new content for the game.

Only two Season Passes that were worth my money were the L.A. Noire Rockstar Pass when I got it for 800 Microsoft Points on the first week it was released and the Gears 3 Season Pass that I got in the Christmas sales last year for 1800 Microsoft Points (I think.)

Oh. This makes sense now. I saw someone playing as the Redcoat yesterday when playing the AC3 multiplayer with friends. Back then, we were confused because we didn't recognize her. Now I know that the person was a Season Pass holder.

The Redcoat was a Target pre order exclusive...so much for it being exclusive. Garbage ass company. Sick of these practices. I really am.

Yeesh, kinda weak. I had one of those pre-order bonuses. It took me less than 5 minutes to complete the Mayan Ruins and get the Captain Kidd's Sawtooth Sword. Hopefully the other missions are longer... Arguably, the sword is a lot better than anything you can get before very late in the game, so at least the bonus is worth something.

Guess I'll wait for the edition with all the DLC after all. Low blow having pre-order dlc as part of the pass. Good thing I only rented the game.

When I hear DLC, I think gameplay and achievements. Not into wasting money on skins

In all honesty, I can't really be angry at them anymore. They did this with Da Vinci Disappearance and Lost Archive, only those were the final DLC, so people with the exclusives got to have them as exclusives for longer. But I think they released this first instead of last because of all the people who would spend so much money buying the exclusives first hand. Besides, I loved the exclusive stuff for my pre order and think it's awesome that more people will be able to experience it.

I just thought as such because it was the first time I ever saw the Redcoat.

They're pissed because the game was promised 5 DLC packs apart of the $30 Season Pass. Using one of those 5 for just exclusive pre order DLC is such a huge cop out, especially if you already pre ordered the game from one of the retailers with the exclusive.
