Assassin's Creed III DLC trailer: The Tyranny of King Washington

Assassin's Creed III is getting new DLC in the shape of The Tyranny of King Washington, having had its pre-order bonus content already made available to season passers earlier this month. Wait a minute... King Washington? Yes, you read that right - this is an alternative version of historical events, allowing you to take on the role of the man tasked with bringing down George Washington in a version of history where the great man became a power-thirsty tyrant.


Ubisoft's description reads: "Driven insane with unlimited power, he has transformed the young United States into a despotic empire. After witnessing the death of his loved ones in his tribe at King Washington's hands, a hero will rise, calling upon the special abilities locked within his lineage, to seek justice and freedom for the people."

It's an interesting skew for a series that has always prided itself on its close historical accuracy (albeit with a few instances of poetic license along the way). However, platforms and release dates are still to be announced so look out for more on this one soon.

    "An empire built on war, ...and death." Seems pretty historically accurate to me.

    Indeed I'm not quite seeing how alternate this history is. The United States did go west after all...

    How about John Wilkes Booth: Lincoln Hunter?

    Different war, too far in the future for it to be Connor.

    This does not seem far from the real truth judging by today's events.
