Assassin's Creed 3 DLC features an 'all-new single-player campaign'

Five add-ons planned within six months, DLC Season Pass priced

Ubisoft has released the first Assassin's Creed 3 DLC details.

The publisher plans to launch five game add-ons within six months of the game's release.

The DLC will feature "an all-new single-player campaign" called The Tyranny of King Washington, which will be made "available as a continual episodic story through three DLCs that will let players experience an alternate history of the American Revolution".

In will also offer further single-player missions, plus new maps and characters for the game's multiplayer component.


The Tyranny of King Washington

  • It's 1783. As the revolution comes to a close, a new and most unexpected enemy emerges. Driven by the desire to secure the fate of the colonies, George Washington, the greatest hero of the revolution, succumbs to the temptation of infinite power. The new King is born and his reign leaves no one untouched. To return freedom to the land, our new hero Connor must dethrone a tyrant he once called friend.

Ubisoft executive producer Sebastien Puel said: "History is our playground, and Assassin's Creed teams have always loved playing with historical facts and their consequences as a way to better understand a time period 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.'"

The publisher also confirmed a standalone price for the Assassin's Creed 3 Season Pass, which will provide access to all five DLC releases. It'll cost 2400 Microsoft Points (£20.56) on Xbox 360 and £23.99 on PS3. PC specific pricing wasn't confirmed. All of the DLC will be released on Wii U too.

Ubisoft has announced an Assassin's Creed 3 release date of October 30 on PS3 and Xbox 360, with a PC release to follow on November 23. A Wii U version will be available at the console's launch.
