The American War of Independence just got a bit more interesting, thanks to Ubisoft.
Per reports, Ubisoft has announced that a new DLC for ‘Assassin’s Creed 3,’ called The Tyranny of King Washington: The Infamy will hit all platforms this February.
The new DLC will be the first of three parts, and will continue in two additional content packs that will let gamers experience an alternate history of the events following the American Revolution. The new DLC is now set to arrive on Feb. 19 for Xbox 360, PC and on Feb. 20 for PlayStation 3.
The first part, titled The Infamy, will have Connor fight against his old friend and ally George Washington, who, since the departure of British, has grown mad with power and crowned himself the new King of America. As expected, the first DLC pack will only feature the beginnings of the journey that will lead to the ultimate battle for freedom.
This is a major piece of information for the new DLC after Ubisoft previously revealed a trailer for the forthcoming DLC. The trailer gave a basic glimpse of the type of situation that the new expansion pack would be based around.
The trailer, that appeared last month, mostly dealt with the themes of how America would have turned out if George Washington was a tyrant ruler. It shows how the country would end up if its constitution were based on the blood of innocents.
“The Tyranny Of King Washington Trailer introduces an all-new Assassin's Creed III single-player campaign. Explore an alternate reality where George Washington has become a tyrant. Driven insane with unlimited power, he has transformed the young United States into a despotic empire,” the report stated. “After witnessing the death of his loved ones in his tribe at King Washington's hands, a hero will rise, calling upon the special abilities locked within his lineage, to seek justice and freedom for the people.”
The new first part of the DLC, alongside the other two upcoming episodes, (the whole collection) is set to be available for purchase for 2400 Microsoft Points via the Xbox LIVE for Xbox 360, or for $29.99 on PlayStation Network and PC. It can also be purchased at GameStop and Best Buy.
The first episode, of the DLC, however, can be purchased individually for 800 Microsoft Points on Xbox LIVE or $9.99 on PC. The DLC packs will also be available on the Nintendo Wii U.
