There’s nothing stealthy about gamers’ love for the Assassin’s Creed series, apparently, as Ubisoft has announced that pre-orders for Assassin’s Creed III have broken every pre-order record for the publisher. Pre-orders of Assassin’s Creed III already have more than doubled those of last year’s Assassin’s Creed Revelations, Ubisoft’s previous pre-order record holder.
Assassin’s Creed III is the next installment in the Assassin’s Creed franchise, which has already sold more than 40 million copies worldwide. Players will step into the boots of a new hero, Connor. Set during the American Revolution in the late 18th century the Assassin will battle for liberty against ruthless tyranny in the most stylized and fluid combat experiences in the franchise to date.
Customers still have time to place their pre-orders and benefit from a number of exciting deals, including the Assassin’s Creed III Season Pass, featuring “The Tyranny of King Washington,” an all-new single-player campaign told through three episodic content packs that lets gamers experience an alternate history of the events following the American Revolution. In addition to this all-new single player experience, Assassin’s Creed III downloadable content will feature new maps and characters for an even more expansive multiplayer experience.
Assassin’s Creed III Season Pass will be available for purchase for 2400 Microsoft Points on Xbox LIVE or $29.99 on the PlayStationNetwork. It can be pre-ordered at GameStop and Best Buy and is available at UBIShop. The Assassin’s Creed III Season Pass releases within six months after the game launch at a 25% savings over the individual pack prices. Also, Season Pass owners will have access to the first downloadable content pack one week before other gamers. All Assassin’s Creed III Downloadable Content will also be available for the Wii U.
