Assassin's Creed III DLC Gives Connor And George Washington Alternate Histories

Unveiled at Friday night's VGAs, the trailer for Assassin's Creed III's next big DLC throws players into a world where George Washington became a malevolent despot instead of America's first president.

Considering how Connor was a close ally of the iconic general in Assassin's Creed III, the potential for drama is high in this expansion.

The Tyranny of George Washington will be a three-part offering where Ratonhnhaké:ton never used the name Connor and never became an Assassin. There's no release date yet but The DLC will be accessible with a season pass that will cost 2400 Microsoft Points on Xbox LIVE or $US29.99 on the PlayStation Network.


    So he never became an Assassin?

    Would we just continue to play as Haytham?

      Well in the flashes in the video, it shows Connor, not in his Assassin's Robes, but in clothes made of pelts of fur. I think it is safe to say we will play as that Connor

      Wouldn't that be nice.....I'm up to Sequence 10 and I'd like nothing more than to a game entirely devoted to Haytham. He's the only character in the game who isn't either bland or written to be a nauseating cheerleader for the 4th of July.

        I know, Haytham was the bomb, and I genuinely enjoyed playing him

        Sure he is and arm of the Templars, but so what, a fantastic character

          I agree. This game was pretty lacking in likeable/interesting characters, but he was great. He also made this the first game since the original where I actually paused to questions the actions/motives of the Assassins. Connor was just so bland.

          That said, I'm more than a little concerned about the price.

            So bland

            And I had gotten so sick of Ezio

              Older Ezio, yeah. His character in ACII and AC:B was funny and relatable. As were a few others, like Leonardo, etc.

                I also am concerned about the price

                To me it doesn't seem worth it

    Y'know, this is an interesting enough concept to have been a stand-alone game. Hell, I'd have bought it, which is more than I can say for AC3.

    $30 for single DLC out of 5, thats absurd considering we've already paid for the game. drop the price

      Its 30$ for the season pass isnt it?

      fairly sure it's going to count as 3 dlcs considering its in 3 parts so $10 a dlc.

    Shite, $30. It'd want to be a pretty decent sized game (or part of a decent sized bundle) for that kind of moolah.

      50 in Aus.

        Good god almighty. Giving that a miss, then.

          Yeah, it's pretty steep. I might have paid that if it was going to be Borderlands-level extensive, but I think I'll wait for a sale.
