Ubisoft has announced Assassin’s Creed 3 will get a season pass for its DLC, which includes a singleplayer campaign mission about Evil George Washington in a “What If?” scenario!
Storyline: 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. Ubisoft announces the Assassin’s Creed 3 Season Pass offer, granting access to all five upcoming downloadable content packs to gamers owning the original game on PlayStation 3, Microsoft’s Xbox 360, and Windows PC.
Assassin’s Creed 3 downloadable content will feature “The Tyranny of King Washington,” an all-new single-player campaign told through three episodic content packs that lets gamers experience an alternate history of the events following the American Revolution.
“History is our playground – and AC teams have always loved playing with historical facts and their consequences as a way to better understand a time period,” said Sebastien Puel, Executive Producer at Ubisoft. “While Assassin’s Creed III concentrates on history as it happens, we wanted to take some liberties with this DLC and tell you how things ‘could have happened.’”

The Assassin’s Creed III Season Pass releases within six months after the game launch at a 25% savings over the individual pack prices. Also, Season Pass owners will have access to the first downloadable content pack one week before other gamers.
