View author's profile

Ubisoft has announced that the first episode in the three episode Assassin's Creed III DLC, The Tyranny of King Washington will be coming next month. Titled 'The Infamy of King Washington', the episodic DLC picks up after the events of ACIII with an alternate historical timeline.

It's 1783, the American Revolution is at an end, and Ratonhnhaké:ton (AKA Connor) awakens from an unsettling dream only to discover that in the newly founded United States of America, George Washington has been crowned king and he's a nasty piece of work. It's up to Ratonhnhaké:ton to depose the tyrant king and return freedom to the land.

The Infamy of King Washington will be the first episode in the three episode DLC tale, and it'll be available to download from the XBL Marketplace on February 19th for 800 Microsoft Points. You can also grab it as part of the Assassin's Creed III Season Pass for 2400 Microsoft Points.

800 per part, times 3 parts (its all the same storyline). so like i said, 2400 (aka $30)

@9 I think 7 is inferring that the three episodes will be 800 each, totalling 2400. Or maybe not, people are pretty stupid on this website.

OT it's nice they'll actually have some dedicated single player content rather than the shit MP and block sequence DLC from Revelations.

Now THIS is what I bought the Season Pass for. None of this MP add-on junk, a proper story-based driven piece of DLC. Might have to wait a little longer than expected, but it should be good.

@7 Idiot, it is not 2400 msp for single dlc. Getting the season pass gets all three story dlc as well as the mp dlc. Two mp dlc packs I believe. So that is 2400 points for 5 dlc. Unless you only play singleplayer than that isn't overpriced. If the 3 story dlcs, are really short then you can complain about prices.

i see reading comprehension is NOT one of your strong suits.

my first post wasn't very ambiguous to begin with, but then it was clarified in posts 10 and 11.

all "3" dlc's are the same story. they are effectively the same dlc, rending any one of them useless without the other 2.

(and who plays multiplayer in a single player game? at least in bioshock they were smart enough to realize nobody gave a shit about multiplayer and drop it)

@18 I see reading isn't yours I said if you only plan to play sp then you can complain about the price and only if the sp dlc is really short. So what if it is just one story, if it is a big one and each chapter isn't too short then you should not complain about the price.

Who plays mp? A lot of people, the mp is pretty popular for AC, since brotherhood.

People! Let's not be bitching about this thing being overpriced until we know how big it is. Yes, it's all one story line but who knows how long said storyline is. If each of them is four or five hours long $30 seems pretty spot on, considering I paid $60 for the game and it was about 25 hours long or so.

Alternate history? Be interesting to see how the hell they fit that in with the whole 'Animus' thing.
Unless it's some sort of 'training mod' for the animus, which is the only possible way of fitting it in.
...or maybe they'll just think 'Balls to it' and bugger the canon.

I bought the Season Pass for this game and have yet to even finish the main game. It hasn't managed to grip me like the other games did. And this makes me sad... I was really looking forward to this one, but it has been a pretty large disappointment, in my opinion.

I haven't played this since November and I doubt extremely late DLC which was originally Content for the full game will make me want to shell out more money for merely a hour in 1/2 of content maybe 2 hours at the most.

I love the game, just hate how they do DLC with it.

Whilst I agree with your sentiment, there are others that don't, and Ubisoft release MP DLC for one reason, enough people play it for them to have a market to do so.

Bishock got dropped as they have a much smaller community, and to be fair to Assassins Creed whilst it's mulitplayer mode is hardly the strongest out there it is also far from the worst, and quite unique.

@22 Ugh, you call out 18 for reading comprehension after he called you on it once. So this is your second time being called out on reading comprehension. Look at the first TWO lines of the article. It states that the first episode will be titled "The Infamy of King Washington" within the entire DLC pack titled "The Tyranny of King Washington". Clear as mud?

Hopefully this first segment of the DLC series will be similar in length and content to that of the Da Vinci Disappearance of AC Brotherhood – in that case, it would be well worth the 10 bucks.

I'll wait for reviews. Then I'll probably wait for a price drop. Assassin's Creed DLC is hardly ever worth it full price.

i was in the under standing that all of the season pass dlc would be out before march, so if there is 3 parts to the washington dlc does that mean we will gett all of the dlc within 2 weeks of the 1st one?
imo ubisoft is breaking the washington dlc into 2 part to milk the people and make it seem like they are getting a deal on the dlc which in fact they are being ripped off!

A lot of people seem to be confused. The DLC is in 3 parts for 800 MSP each, so yes 2400 MSP in total. However the Season Pass has 5 DLC. This includes the 3 Washington Story DLCs and 2 Multiplayer DLC Packs, one of which has in-game story missions added too. All this for 2400 MSP. Therefore buying a Season Pass Gives you the Multiplayer DLC (or whichever order you want to put it in) for FREE. Whether this is worth the price however is debatable.

I didn't read the article, because I read the post somewhere else and they wrote The Tyranny Of King Washington. They didn't put the Infamy, so that's why I asked.

So now there's two DLC out and still not even a lick of recognition of the massive synchronization glitch stopping players from being able to complete the original 1000G.

How about the Tyranny of King Obama? Seems very fitting considering the obama has been acting like a fascist dictator for the last 4 years.

Sadly, I bet most Americans don't understand the historical significance of "King Washington".

Many of the Founding Fathers wanted to make George Washington King of America. Washington refused, as he didn't think one man should wield so much power(how ironic today considering the way the obama is acting).

Because Washington refused to be king, we now have the Constitution, and our first President, of the United States.

I wonder how many kids will think this DLC portrays how it actually happened? Education in America saddens me.

number 17 is right, i feel sorry for the people who cant work it out, i thought the DLC coming was going to be something new, not the tyranny of king washington, i thought that was a joke, a joke bit of DLC people for people who wanted it as part of buying the season pass, i didnt know that was the DLC for the game and what the season pass is the majority of

if this is the only SP DLC for assassins creed then ubisoft are fucking cunts end of! its a shit story line and just an alternative ending, what happened to new sequences, what is wrong with game develelopers, its like they make no effort anymore when you think they finally might be :(

@53 healthcontrol, guncontrol, higher taxes, more executive orders than any other president in history, more debt than ALL other presidents combined. Government take over of banks, hospitals, home loans, student loans, car industry, energy industry, universities... and that's in only four years. Got another four to go.
