If you’re so infatuated with the adventures of Connor Kenway that you’ve already purchased the Season Pass for Assassin’s Creed III, The Hidden Secrets downloadable content is available for you now.
The Hidden Secrets — which is on my list for the year’s best example of redundancy and repetition in a title — features three missions, two single-player costumes, and two multiplayer characters.
The missions — The Lost Mayan Ruins, The Ghost of War, and A Dangerous Season — were previously exclusives f0r fans who pre-ordered through GameStop. The multiplayer characters were exclusive to a separate promotion with Nos Energy Drink.
The new costumes include a Captain of the Aquila uniform and a Colonial Assassin outfit.
The Season Pass is $29.99 on PlayStation Network and Steam or 2,400 Microsoft Points on Xbox Live.
On Dec. 11, Ubisoft will begin selling The Hidden Secrets as a standalone download. Previously, the publisher stated that the Season Pass represents a 25 percent savings on the four content packs that it guarantees fans. I’m a humble game journalist, but if my arithmetic is correct, that means The Hidden Secrets will go for $10 or 800 Microsoft Points when sold separately, though Ubisoft hasn’t yet announced the final price.
