George Washington is a very bad man… at least in the alternate Assassin's Creed III universe that will be presented in the upcoming set of Assassin's Creed III – The Tyranny of King Washington expansion.
Ubisoft revealed that "The Infamy", the first episode of the 3 part add-on, will be available on February 19th for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. The full set of the Tyranny of King Washington content is included in the Assassin’s Creed III Season Pass, or can be picked up, a la carte, for $9.99/800 MSP per episode. Obviously the season pass is your best deal.
