So which version of Assassin’s Creed 3 did you pre-order? Vanilla Edition? The Live Free one with the bling-bling medallion, or the superb-looking Freedom Edition? Heck, there’s even a Mel Gibson Edition that hates the British Redcoats so much,that it’ll get drunk,steal your car, and rant about it to police officers. But one thing is for certain, is that whichever game you buy, you’ll still be paying extra for some added DLC down the line.
Kotaku was sent the following image from a Gamestop employee, a chain of gaming retail shops that had successfully pimped the game incredibly well, resulting in above average advance orders.
A pat on the back was enclosed with the following image, which detailed plans to keep Assassin’s Creed 3 going after it launched, with a team that was specially formed in order to provide new DLC.
Which means that you might want to haul out the ol’ credit card for the PSN and save those Xbox Live Points, for a season pass that will give you unfettered access to said content. There’s no word yet on whether this content is for single-player or multi-player, but if its anything that’s like the Desmond Memory Chain sequences from Revelations, then I’m going to defenestrate myself.
And while DLC can be welcome, it can also be a slap in the face for gamers, when exorbitant prices are charged for them, unlike Bioware, who has kept the action going in Mass Effect 3 with some superb, free, additional content for their game.
But hey, if it’s something substantial at the end of the day, then I’m all for the episodic approach to adding to a game, so long as it isn’t content which could have been included in the first place.
