Assassin’s Creed III DLC ‘The Tyranny of King Washington’ Releasing Feb 19
After a tantalizing initial announcement just prior to the game’s launch, the first narrative DLC for Assassin’s Creed III, The Tyranny of King Washington, will be launching in episodic form starting with the first episode on February 19. It’ll be available for purchase on Xbox 360 and PS3, as well as PC via… ugh, Uplay.
The first episode follows the supposed hero, Ratonhnhaké:ton (no, seriously), after he wakes up from “an unsettling dream” to the realization that George Washington has been crowned King of America. Yes, as in the America that just moments before broke free of the tyrannical chains of Britain.
So, what’s your job in all of this mess, as the great Ratonhnhaké:ton (no, seriously)? Well, to dethrone him, of course. And, I imagine, help him with sidequests that involve the chopping down of cherry trees. That’s yet to be confirmed, mentioned, or even hinted at by Ubisoft, so… let’s just go with the dethroning part for now. Fingers crossed, though.
Since there will be two more episodes of this three-part squaredance with Washington, you have the option of either purchasing each episode individually or as a part of the Assassin’s Creed III Season Pass, which as you likely know costs $29.99 (2400 Microsoft points) and gets you all DLC that’s ever released for the game.
Should you go the a’la carte route, each episode is $9.99 (800 Microsoft points).
As we reach the end of this news post, I just want to take the time to thoroughly express my deep and undying appreciation for the British people. Such a lovely culture, and even lovelier accents! Even the Queen seems like a nice gal to have over for brunch.
And no, I’m not saying that because Inside Gaming’s Editor-In-Chief, Rob Smith, just so happens to be British. If I wanted to be on his good side, I’d complement his fashion sense, hairstyle or overt sense of wisdom.
So don’t accuse me of things, guys. That’s not cool.
