While the Assassin’s Creed series has always had an alternate history feel to it, they have tried to keep events that happened within the context of the actual event in the real world. This new DLC for Assassin’s Creed III, however; gives the team a chance to truly delve into alternate history with a look at what might have happened if George Washington had decided to become a tyrant instead of a president.
Conner gains new powers in this DLC, called “Wolf Powers.” These enable him to become a better assassin by granting him abilities such as “Wolf Cloak” which will render you invisible long enough to stalk and take out your prey. The other power, “Wolf Pack,” allows you to call on a pack of wolves to take down enemies, similar to being able to call down assassin’s and arrows in Assassin’s Creed II, Brotherhood, and Revelations. These tools will help enable you to take down the tyrant King Washington and help restore an independent America!
The DLC will release in several parts with the first part having released on February 19th, and the next two parts releasing on March 19th and April 23rd. Each part is $9.99 (800 Microsoft Points) or can be purchased as a pack for $29.99 (2,400 Microsoft points).
