Ubisoft Adds Two Shortcut DLC Bundles For Assassin's Creed III

Assassin's Creed III demands your attention. Such a great game deserves plenty of add-on content, too.

You already know about the Season Pass for the game, which will delver all upcoming downloadable content for $30. But there's more: Ubisoft has given consumers the option of two shortcut bundles, each of which are priced at $15.

First up is the Appearance Pack, which unlocks all appearance elements for Levels 1-50. So all character customization, weapons and abilities will be available from the get-go. Even all the player profile emblem symbols will be unlocked. The second is a Gameplay Pack, which gives you access to every last gameplay element regardless of the player's level. All skills, perks, streaks, and bonuses. Obviously, these are for the multiplayer portion of ACIII, which works well enough but isn't the #1 reason to own the game, obviously.

Just remember that you'll need a Uplay Passport so you can unlock stuff past Level 10. Uplay is basically Ubisoft's way of combating used sales, as you have to pay $10 for Uplay if you purchase a pre-owned copy of the game. C'mon, you knew that already.

That's no excuse. I buy games way after they release all the time and you work your way up (or else what's the point?).


I felt this way when you could unlock everything with a cheat for free (remember that?) and still feel this way, but anyone who spends $$$ on this is particularly sad.

I was referring to the people who buy this particular DLC for multiplayer. I am in no part interested in this, it's a waste of money imo. Rather just play it through and level up like normal.

Yeah that just turned me off the multiplayer element completely. What's the point of working towards unlocking it all if anyone can just get it with no effort. Total lost of appeal for me.

I think that BA mission was included if pre-ordered(or at a certain retailer?), but it's also been put on PSN for those who didn't.
