Ubisoft’s announced that the first piece of DLC for Assassin’s Creed III is now available for Season Pass owners on Xbox 360 and PC, ahead of its release tomorrow on PlayStation 3.
The Hidden Secrets is the first in a long line-up of content offerings for Ubisoft’s blockbuster third entry into its Assassin’s Creed franchise, adding three extra missions including the Lost Mayan Ruins, the Ghost of War and a Dangerous Secret, for an additional hour of gameplay. We’re told that each mission will reward the user with in-game weapons, in addition to:
- Two single-player costumes including the fabled Captain of the Aquila uniform and the traditional Colonial Assassin outfit
- Two multiplayer characters including the fearsome Redcoat and the deadly Sharpshooter
Future content offerings for Assassin’s Creed III will include “The Tyranny of King Washington”, an entirely new single-player campaign that’s told through three episodic content releases. Set in 1783 after the American Revolution is over, this new campaign sees George Washington, blinded by his thirst for ultimate power, declaring himself King. In this alternative history of the events following the American Revolution, Connor must dethrone the tyrant and return freedom to the land.
Though The Hidden Secrets add-on pack is available for Season Pass owners today, it won’t be available to everyone else until December 11 on Xbox Live and PC and December 13 on PlayStation Network. It’s also scheduled for release on Nintendo’s Wii U “at a later date.” Those wanting to get in on the action today can purchase the Assassin’s Creed III Season Pass, granting them access to all five upcoming downloadable add-on content packs including The Hidden Secrets at a discounted rate of more than 25%, for 2400 Microsoft Points on Xbox Live or £23.99 on PlayStation Network and PC.
If you’ve already got the Assassin’s Creed III Season Pass then there’s nothing stopping you from downloading The Hidden Secrets DLC right now.
We visited Colonial America in Assassin’s Creed III upon its release back in October, awarding it top-marks for its “massive leap” in terms of production values and innovative, stating that “is certainly a frontrunner for Game of the Year.”
Assassin’s Creed III is out now on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC and Wii U.
