Does today's DLC have achievements?

Just like the title says, does the DLC that came out today have achievements?

No, these are just the bundle of pre-order bonuses. The Battle Hardened pack coming next will have new MP achievements and I'm assuming the GW series will have additional achievements with them as well.

Nope. It's just 3 small additional missions.

That's why I asked how to access the DLC WITH a season pass. I picked up the season pass in a good deal when I picked up my game so I went ahead and got the pass.

Crock of shit DLC this one. I already had the Ghost one which was pretty good considering it was 3 small missions so was expecting something similar for the other two...

The Mayan one was jus climb to the top of temple, fall down, climb up again and collect sword - no puzzles or anything to make it interesting.

The other was just to destroy a bunch of ships with no context.

That said... Red Coat MP character is good, as is being gifted all the Sharpshooterd customization for free.

Basically if this pack is one of the 5 advertised in the season pass its a bit of a joke.

The George Washington DLC will be in 3 episodes, so substantially more. I'm guessing they're 800 each, so 2400, which would be the price of the season pass anyway.

That said, we should be able to work out the exact price they'll be come next week when the MP DLC goes up along with the price for this DLC.

You're right - it is a pretty damn good sword but does it really matter?
I mean you could easily go through the whole game with the hidden blades only ...

I fully agree with DoosMakhina - for people who already bought special editions of the game containing bonus content the DLC was a bit crappy.

It took me about ten minutes to have it done. One Naval mission and the Maya thing ...

OK, you could argue that it's my fault because I bought a special edition in the first place with half of the so-called new stuff already in it, but I think it's not nice from Ubisoft to first sell "exclusive stuff" that soon afterwards turns out not to be exclusive at all as it is resold as first DLC ...

Imho they should have put a little bit more in the first DLC so that fans of the series who bought special editions as well as the season pass would not feel "punished" ...

The dlc is awful. Beat it in less than an hour, to me the entire thing felt like a deleted scene.

Completely agree with this. Got no issue at all that the exclusive stuff is released to everyone (I did get the Red Coat I wanted so much after all) but for a first DLC it's pretty disgraceful, just because for most die-hard fans (ie the people who would pick up every DLC no mater what) there is next to nothing for them.

With Brotherhood and Revelations the pre order goodies were released as part of a 'proper' DLC, which is perfectly fine. This though is just them packaging up content they'd stripped out of the game in the first place for companies 'exclusives'.
