Response to Assassin’s Creed 3 DLC Season Pass

The pre-order cost of Assassin’s Creed 3 Gold Edition is giving gamers reason to hold out a wait for a better deal, and even though the idea of a digital bundle of the PS3 and Vita versions along with all the DLC is a good one, the pricing and season pass aspects could do with reviewing.

Assassin’s Creed 3 Gold Edition pre-order price is £109.99, and with this you will be able to get AC3 and Liberation on the PS Vita plus series’ first DLC Season Pass. Available from the EU PlayStation Store Eurogamer documents the Gold Edition that also has another offer, which has everything but the PS Vita game for those without one, and this is priced at £84.99. In addition, for those who only own the handheld can pay the same £84.99 minus the Assassin’s Creed 3 Season Pass.

With these offers, all versions will contain an extra mission known as A Dangerous Secret, available with the game exclusive Special Edition. Freedom and Join or Die Edition’s are also accessible with other physical additions, although Ubisoft has yet to officially announce the bundles, so we expect to hear more on this in the near future. In response to the Assassin’s Creed 3 DLC season pass, some gamers are questioning why they should pay for something that is not even available yet, and that they would rather wait until the actual complete edition, as opposed to paying these prices.

In other AC3 news EGMnow write about the amount of British fans who are angry at the apparent pro-American marketing campaign. They also mention that scriptwriter Corey May promises the team has absolutely nothing against the British. A fair amount of media released for the game shows Connor killing Redcoat soldiers giving fans cause to accuse Ubisoft Montreal of anti-British or pro-American sentiments. The problem has arisen because only Redcoats have been shown although the game involves killing targets on both sides of the war.

This could probably be the only parts of the game that are ready to be seen and this title is meant to be more about assassins versus Templars. Corey May continued to defend the company by explaining the historical background, as during the time of the Revolutionary War everyone back then was a Brit deeming it a British civil war. The fact that this is only a game and the Assassin’s Creed franchise has never taken a political stance over any conflict gives us reason to wonder what all the fuss is about.

On Monday, we wrote a post about the ranged ability involved in the Assassin’s Creed 3 multiplayer and the new mode to the series called Domination, which is similar to that experienced in the Call of Duty games. As we wait patiently for the arrival of Assassin’s Creed 3, improvements to the multiplayer aspect also sounds exciting. What are your views on the Assassin’s Creed 3 DLC Season Pass?

    I hate all this DLC season pass, exclusive missions and stuff for pre ordering here or there, this edition has that mission, that edition comes with these weapons and skins etc etc. I grew up in a time when games were released complete and fairly bug free, same game for everyone ( no gold or goty editions)  bonus stuff was unlocked by playing the game but now those extras are sold to us on top of the price you pay for the game. Hopefully gamers will get sick of being ripped off and stop feeding the DLC cash cow.
