Assassin's Creed III Season Pass Detailed

By Michelle Balsan, 6 years ago
We've finally made it to October, which means you can count down the weeks remaining to Ubisoft's hotly-anticipated Assassin's Creed III on the fingers of one hand. Surely, by now, you've perused over the multitude of screenshots and trailers for the title, and maybe you've even read our hands-on impressions of the game from Eurogamer.

For the most part, all of the above details are what we can expect from the game's on-disc content. As you all well know, however, this is the age of downloadable expansions, so it's certainly no surprise that Assassin's Creed III is set to receive its fair share. It should also come as no surprise that Ubisoft is joining a growing trend and offering a Season Pass for the game.

The ACIII Season Pass will include five pieces of additional content including the three-episode “The Tyranny of King Washington” expansion. This DLC will bring an all-new single-player campaign that represents an alternate version of the "history of the events following the American Revolution".

Of course, the Season Pass will also include new content for the game's multiplayer. No specific details were given, but "new maps and characters" were promised.

All of the content included in the season pass will be released within six months of Assassin's Creed III's launch date of October 31st. The pass will cost 2400 MSP, or can be pre-ordered for $29.99 from GameStop or Best Buy. In addition to the 25% savings you'll receive against buying the packs individually, Season Pass holders will also have access to the first DLC pack one week before their general release.
