Ubisoft has announced a few new tidbits regarding their upcoming blockbuster release, Assassin’s Creed III. First off, Ubisoft announced a season pass that will total up to 30 bucks, a 25% saving off of buying the packs individually. Assassin’s Creed III’s DLC packs have not all been detailed but Ubisoft promised new single player experiences but also “downloadable content (that) will feature new maps and characters for an even more expansive multiplayer experience.”
“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,” said Sebastien Puel, Executive Producer at Ubisoft. “While Assassin’s Creed III concentrates on history as it happens, we wanted to take some liberties with this DLC and tell you how things ‘could have happened.”
That brings up the next announcement Ubisoft made, a downloadable content pack that will feature the rule of “King George.” But not one of the King George’s you and I know of, but instead the King George that we know as President Washington. As Executive Producer Puel said, “History is out playground,” and they’re proving that by tweaking George Washington’s reign by turning him into a power hungry tyrant.
I don’t know about you but I find the idea of Ubisoft taking segments of history and tweaking them into a “What if?” situation a possible endless pit of interesting stories. Let’s just see where this goes, though I’ve got faith in Ubisoft to not disappoint.
