As a long time Assassin's Creed fan, I was very excited for this DLC. The multiplayer DLC was all right, but this was always the big one I was waiting for. And for the most part, it did not disappoint.


The story for this DLC is actually pretty great, for DLC. To give the basic premise, it's alternate history, where George Washington became corrupted by power and chose to become a ruthless monarch instead of just a President. In this universe, Connor never really became Connor, and was never an Assassin. Yet they connect it to the main story, as Connor wakes up relieved to find his mother alive, confused as to why his robes are gone and why Commander Washington was being referred to as King. The DLC ends on a cliffhanger. It's not a huge one but it's just enough to make the wait for Episode 2 a tough one.


Here's where my one main complaint is. We all know Assassin's Creed III is a very buggy game, even with the several Title Updates it's received. However, my experience with this was so glitchy and buggy, you'd swear they made this DLC using the pre-patched version of the game. They were all minor inconveniences, but those add up after awhile. The entire game takes place in a portion of the Frontier, and most of it in winter, so trudging through snow is a chore. There are random side-quests, such as feeding hungry civilians, saving a guy from a wolf attack, and attacking a convoy and freeing your native brothers, but they have no specific spots on the map, and you really only find them by luck (except starving civilians. For some reason you are going to find them EVERYWHERE.) Connor also acquires an invisible wolf pack instead of apprentices, as well as the ability to become invisible and go on killing sprees, at the cost of his ever draining health. It sounds weird but it's actually pretty cool. There are also "lucid memory fragments" around the map, and finding all 3 of them gives you a special scene that shows how The Tyranny of King Washington came to be. However, it's only Episode 1, so this DLC's scene is really just a set up.


The achievements for this DLC are actually pretty well rounded. Sure, there's only 4, but they're not all about one thing. You get the standard achievement for completing the first little bit, and the standard achievement for completing it. There's also one centered on the DLC's new feature, and one centered on achieving full synchronization by completing all the Frontier side quests and optional objectives in the memories, which wouldn't be so bad except for the previously mentioned location issue, but it's an easy fix. Once you find a location where one of those side quests takes place, mark it on your map, run a significant distance away then go back, and the event should respawn.


This DLC is pretty great, once you get used to all the glitches. It took me a good 2-3 hours to do the main story, and then another hour or so messing around the Frontier. For 800 points I'd say this DLC was pretty fairly priced. If you plan on getting this DLC, you may as well get the Season Pass, because these 3 episodes add up to the same price as the Season Pass, but with the Pass you get the first two DLCs as well.

If you have any questions about the DLC, leave a comment and I'll get back to you. Thanks for reading, and I hope this review helped you get off the fence, whether to buy it or not!
