Assassin's Creed III (opens in new tab) 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 (opens in new tab) 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.
