Assassin's Creed III: The Tyranny of King Washington

A lot has changed in the world of Assassin’s Creed III… with the introduction of our first single-player episodic DLC The Tyranny of King Washington this Tuesday, we figured we should reacquaint you with the hero you thought you knew.

In the shattered reality of The Tyranny of King Washington, the events that shaped a young Mohawk warrior into the heroic Connor of AC3 never happened, thrusting a confused Ratonhnhaké:ton into a sometimes torturous, yet occasionally blissful, waking dream. Can he obliterate King Washington’s demented reign?

To combat George Washington, the former champion of American freedom turned power-mad overlord, Ratonhnhaké:ton will need to master new abilities:

  • Power of the Bear – Fills Ratonhnhaké:ton with the strength and fury of the mighty bear.
  • Power of the Eagle – Delivers a burst of speed, empowering Ratonhnhaké:ton with blinding agility.
  • Power of the Wolf – Adopt the master camouflage of the wolf, rendering Ratonhnhaké:ton undetectable.
  • Warpaint – A symbol of power and courage enhancing Ratonhnhaké:ton’s abilities.
  • Alpha of the Pack – Command a brotherhood of fearsome and ruthless wolves.

The Revolution was just the beginning, Assassins! Look for The Tyranny of King Washington to hit PS3 on February 19th.

@4 : Haha, I was thinking the same thing. Since I’m not that much into the multiplayer. So if each of the 3 episodes of this George Washington DLC is $9.99, at least I will break even on the season pass.

idk if i’ll even download the dlc being a season owner.. felt let down after beating the story and havent touched this since.. ubisoft montreal should stick to the farcry franchise farcry3 was so much better than the last 3 assassins games in such a huge way

Feb 19th isn’t this Tuesday, it’s the Tuesday after next…

Question, will all of the episodes of the Tyranny of King Washington DLC be free for season pass owners, or just this one?

Sounds interesting, at least. I’m still holding out for more naval missions. (hint, hint)

Is it actually even possible to get the platinum trophy without having EVERY DLC? I just got the Battle Hardened DLC and now have the trophies for The Tyranny on my list. I mean I would most likely get this DLC anyway but to have the trophies listed BEFORE I get the download? I don’t understand.

@jgrizzle all dlc is free for season pass owners, ALL

@fyrfly89 ive had plat before any dlc even game out, you dont have to get any dlc trophies for any game to get plat

@ fyrfly89: If you put your trophies in “Online Mode”, go to your AC3 trophy list and hit the “square” button on your controller, it’ll break the trophies down into main game and DLC. You only have to get all the trophies in the main game to earn the platinum trophy. There are tons of games I’ve got that I have the platinum and none of the DLC trophies. Happens all the time.

so?? what the heck is going on?? I mean I played and loved All the assassin creed games..I think the first 1 was the best..my internet was down though when I played the AC3 and I played it on my 360.. loved the game hated the experience wish I got it for my ps3..(waiting 4 tax return).. but I don’t get the whole Tyranny thing. Is it a multi player thing or DLC for more missions?

What I don’t get is that Playstation is saying that it’s coming out on the 19th, yet Ubisoft says the DLC is coming out on the 20th. i guess my questions will be answered on Tuesday
