Assassin’s Creed III Season Pass Offers the Chance to Fight King George the First!

Quote from Ubisoft about the $30 season pass, from Kotaku:

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, the greatest hero of the revolution, George Washington, 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 must dethrone a tyrant he once called friend.

Other details include:

The King George campaign can be purchased without buying the Season Pass, but Ubisoft is promising that the pass will net you five pieces of DLC (including new multiplayer content) at a 25% discount and give users one-week-early access to the first DLC pack.

While this is undoubtedly very cool ( the King George campaign, not the Season Pass) I’m not terribly stoked about the new trend that every game has Day One DLC.  How about you charge me $75 and just give me all the content?

Quick thoughts:

– Get ready to suck hot vengeance, Cyclops!

– How incredible is that Rorschach cover?

– Both Defenders and Sweet Tooth are wrapping up soon; savor them whilst you can!

– I’m super stoked for Rot World.  Animal Man & Swamp Thing have been the absolute best thing since the New 52 launched.  Let’s hope DC can keep it going for another year (strong doubts).

– Image’s Danger Club is super violent but really compelling.  Interesting villain too, without spoiling anything.
