AC3: The Tyranny of King Washington DLC trailer

Play through an alternate version of history in the upcoming DLC for Assassin’s Creed 3.

Alternate versions of history are all the rage right now. First Abraham Lincoln was recast a superhuman axe-wielding vampire killer, and now Ubisoft is reimagining George Washington as a tyrannical a-hole in its upcoming expansion for AC3. We’re pretty certain that The Tyranny of King Washington will be more compelling than the Civil War-era vampire flick though — Ubisoft has a long and successful track record of twisting history and making it awesome, so we expect great things. 

Not only will this expansion be a new take on American history, it’s also a new take on the way Ubisoft does DLC. Instead of being a single release, Tyranny of King Washington will come in three separate parts. There’s still no word on an exact release date, but fans of the AC series can get access to all of the upcoming add-on content with a $25 season pass.
