DLC Will Be Available On Wii U Version Of Assassin’s Creed III
The Assassin’s Creed series has had a rich history of DLC ever since extra sequences started becoming available in Assassin’s Creed II so it won’t come as a surprise to anyone that Assassin’s Creed III will also have its fair share of downloadable content.
Ubisoft have not only confirmed that the new iteration of the series will feature DLC but also that it will be available on the Wii U. The Assassin’s Creed III Season Pass will be made available for download and features a new single player campaign called “The Tyranny of King Washington” which is split into three episodic content packs. The new sequences follow on from the campaign and give an alternate history of the events following the American Revolution.
The Season Pass, which includes all five of the forthcoming DLC packs that are scheduled for release within six months after the game launch, is already available to buy on Xbox 360 for 2400 Microsoft points and on the Playstation 3 for £23.99. No word yet on how much Wii U gamers will have to fork out.
Downloadable content is a phenomenon that has been active for quite a while now in the gaming industry but it’s something Nintendo gamers may be unfamiliar with. One thing is for sure though, since the Wii U is receiving a great deal of backing from third party developers we’ll no doubt be seeing a lot more of it in the coming months! It’s something we’ll all just have to get used to.
What are your thoughts on DLC? Will you be tempted to hand over your credit card details?
