Yesterday, a Season Pass for Assassin's Creed III was spotted as part of the Gold Edition. Now, that great Season Pass is official.
Ubisoft announced the option today; it will "grant access to all five upcoming downloadable content packs" and it'll be available for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.
That DLC will include The Tyranny of King Washington, a new single-player campaign told through three episodic content packs, which allows players to view an alternate history pertaining to the American Revolution. Things could've been different… Said executive producer Sebastien Puel:
"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.
