Imbibe a Nos Energy Drink to unlock Assassin’s Creed III multiplayer character

OK, you don’t have to actually have to partake of Nos energy drink, but you do have to purchase one … or receive it as a gift or something.

Customers who acquire a Nos energy drink, regardless of the means, can redeem the code on the can at for Nos Reward Series points. Assassin’s Creed III players can then use a single NRS point to get early access to the unlockable Sharpshooter multiplayer character.

Assassin’s Creed III is an open-world assassination game set during the American Revolutionary War. It is available now for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 for $59.99, and you should read our review.

The Sharpshooter is, shockingly, a master of firearm weapons. He is also apparently the master of aping Clint Eastwood’s style.

Ubisoft will eventually offer the Sharpshooter character to the rest of the Assassin’s Creed III player base, but participants in this Nos promotion can access him immediately.
