Ubisoft details their Assassin's Creed III season pass along with the three-part "The Tyranny of King George" DLC.
For whatever reason, it looks like all of the publishers have picked the third day of the week to start making noise about their trilogy releases. This morning it was all about Angry Birds dropping on consoles and the 3DS, and later Mass Effect getting a collected edition, and now Ubisoft is announcing that the adventures of Ezio are being collected in the PS3-exclusive Assassin's Creed: Ezio Trilogy.
If there’s one thing about Assassin’s Creed it’s this, the whole of history is open to adventure. It’s a brilliant idea because everywhere and every when can be mined. The critically acclaimed series has gone from Jerusalem to Rome to Constantinople. Ubisoft has brought the series a few hundred years further with the American Revolution as the backdrop. I’m not the first to say that I’m very much looking forward to the next numerical entry, especially having felt Ezio had pretty much run his course. We have a whole new protagonist with Connor and this time a fierce new world hangs in the balance as talk of war comes to a boiling point. It sounds really exciting, so I jumped at the chance when offered to hang out in Boston for a couple of days stalking and stabbing in Assassin’s Creed 3!
The addition of multiplayer can be a divisive topic, especially with a series known for its story and characters. When we learned that Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood would have an online competitive mode there were more than a few worried looks around the room. Overall, most of the fears subsided- we got a robust single player mode and we also got a neat new way to play as an assassin with friends. As I’m primarily interested in the story, I can’t say I’m totally convinced we need a multiplayer mode for Assassin’s Creed 3. However, last week, I got some hands on time while in Boston that might have convinced me to give it a closer look and maybe change my mind.
