Two New Assassin's Creed III DLC Packs Available Now

The Tyranny of King Washington on the way

Assassin's Creed III has been out on Wii U since the day the console launched. It represented the first time a game from the Assassin's Creed franchise made it onto a Nintendo home console alongside the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions.

Ubisoft was quick to make it known that the Wii U version would be supported with DLC in the same way the other versions would be, and true to its word two new DLC packs have emerged: The Hidden Secrets and The Battle Hardened. Both of them will be available to download from the Wii U eShop immediately.

The Hidden Secrets adds three extra missions to Connor's quest, including the Lost Mayan Ruins, the Ghost of War and a Dangerous Secret. According to Ubisoft this will extend the title's gameplay by an hour, taking players from the lost Mayan ruins to the high seas. Upon completing missions you will be rewarded with in-game weapons which will no doubt come in handy. The pack also comes with two multiplayer characters, the fearsome Redcoat and the deadly Sharpshooter, as well as a couple of single-player costumes, the Captain of the Aquila uniform and the traditional Colonial Assassin outfit.

If multiplayer is more your thing then The Battle Hardened pack may be what you're looking for, adding new playable characters and maps. The new characters are the influential Governor, the resilient Highlander and the fearsome Coyote Man; the new maps are set in Charlestown, Fort St-Mathieu and Saint Pierre.

The Hidden Secrets pack is priced at $4.99, while The Battle Hardened one is $9.99.

Ubisoft says The Tyranny of King Washington, an all-new single-player campaign told through three episodic content packs, will be on its way to Wii U in the future, so worry not you won't miss out.

Will you be downloading either of these packs? Remember, if you're in Europe you'll need to do so between 11pm and 3am due to the bizarre download restrictions involving 18-rated games.

Just thought I'd provide a translation so everyone else can read it.

I haven't bothered getting far in the single player yet so I won't be purchasing the first one, and I enjoy the multiplayer but unfortunately it almost never seems to work so there's no point in buying the second one either.

Why must nintendo insist on letting people who are underaged not view or purchase games like this. I have the game but can't download the DLC because "I'm not old enough to play games like this". That's what parental controls are for.

@Pichuka97 If you're not 18, you shouldn't have access to 18+ games. That's like law.

I know that many people do it, but Nintendo can't just sell these games/dlc to underage people

And so the DLC agony of the other two had reach Nintendo's territory. Expect to see half-assed titles with tons of stuff missing only to be sold via crumb by crumb DLC.

@retro_player_22 Word up bro ;)

Now all devs need to do is create glitch fest games with broken modes then dangle a piece of crap crafted into the shape of a carrot as they sit back and watch innocent people waste their hard earned cash on not much at all.

Good to see Ubisoft treating Wii U customers with a bit of respect & making the dlc available to those who want to buy it. Take note Activision, as I would be quite willing to pay for the Black Ops 2 map packs if & whenever the Wii U gets them!!

Will be getting "Hidden Secrets" as soon as I get home from work (which will hopefully be quite soon looking at the snow!) Can't get enough of the naval missions!

@SanderEvers Still I think I should be able to view it unless I had parental controls. If Nintendo doesn't fix this then that means I'll have to wait a year to access this and other great content. If Xbox allows me to do this, then Wii U should too.
