Assassin's Creed III XP Event is Live [UPDATE]

By Ashley Woodcock, 6 years ago

After some rubbish calculating by yours truly, it turns out the recently covered XP event was not a triple serving after all. The original poster of the XP revealing thread stated that the "what" would be "150%". I thought this was an extra 150% on top of the original 100%. For this mistake and confusion; I apologize.

The event is actually dishing out 50% bonus XP, which wouldn't even make the event a Double one! After many comments in this thread, and the thread regarding the XP event, it turns out that players have only been managing to "earn 30 to 35% bonus XP" during the event.

Here's what Noctalya, a member of the Ubisoft team, had to say regarding the issue with the XP issue:

We are working on the issue and apologize for the inconvenience. In the meantime, we will extend the XP bonus for an extra two days until Wednesday, December 12th 12:00PM GMT/4:00AM PST.

Also, double XP sounds like a good idea.

Thank you for your patience.
With Ubisoft "working" on the issue, it's slightly unclear if players will earn the full 50% bonus within the next few days of the event. If any confirmations or more details are revealed, we'll be sure to keep you posted!

Original Story

Ubisoft's very well known action-adventure title, Assassin's Creed III has been out for just over a month now. With a large amount of players still looking to make easier work of the Abstergo Entertainment achievement, many of you progressing Assassin's will be pleased to know (if you don't already), that an XP event is live right now for the game. With the lobbies of Assassin's Creed III potentially being much busier this weekend, the difficulty and time frames of these achievements could go either way:

Assassin's Creed IIIWinning TeamThe Winning Team achievement in Assassin's Creed III worth 45 pointsBe on the winning team at the end of a multiplayer game session.

The triple dosage of XP will be live for the weekend, up until Monday at 12:00 PM (GMT) / 4:00 AM (PST). Get in, get your kills and lumps of extra XP, and get out!
