Video: Assassin's Creed III - Tyranny of King Washington's "Wolf Power" Has Some Bite

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

It's a dog's life

As a big-budget release, Assassin's Creed III was always destined to have a fair bit of DLC. After a couple of packs featuring extra missions and multiplayer bonuses — the latter's not recommended on Wii U due to the lack of an active online community — it got to the main event, The Tyranny of King Washington. It's a new single-player story that takes place in an alternate reality where George Washington declares himself King and seizes control of the land; it'll be split into three parts, with the first — The Infamy — already available on the Wii U eShop.

As part of this story the main protagonist, Connor (native name Ratonhnhaké:ton), has access to mythical powers — all playing up to the concept that this new reality can bend rules. One ability that's key to part one is Wolf Power, which gives Ratonhnhaké:ton invisibility and a pack of wolves that can be summoned to attack enemies. It's a chance to mix up tactics, in any case.

A new trailer showing off this power is below — rated 18, like the game — so if you're old enough let us know what you think. Do any of you have this title on Wii U, and have you taken the plunge on The Infamy DLC?

I really enjoyed the MP in past AC games, and 'if' you can get a mp game going this is just as good, if not better.
A real shame there's not a bigger online community on WiiU, not helped by AC3 being cheaper on other systems, and the later release date.
Hopfully AC4 will get a larger Online community, being released on all platforms, at the same time should help.

It's not a matter of a small community, it's a matter of the servers being absolute crap. I have tried to make wolf pack missions with friends and half of the time that doesn't even work. Even though we are all online and have good connections. GAME SESSION CANNOT BE FOUND!

I might try out this DLC whenever I'm finally done with the main story.
I finally connected to a MP match (and got a decent score for my first try) and my Wii U froze and sounded the 'Horn of Death'!
