This has been available for ages to pre order on ps store. Hardly news.

If you pre order gold edition you get a free DLC season pass. Hardly free though when the difference is £30.

You can also pre order AC3 PS3 & liberation on vita as a bundle. £85 and you can pre load the day before - like steam.

I see Uncharted 3 has a game of the year edition due out with all the DLC in it so the season pass wasn't needed there. Unless you couldn't wait of course. Point is I see the same happening here.

I'll be buying Assassins Creed 3 day one but chances are I'll give the pass and DLC a miss as I'm only really interested in single player content and if past Assassins Creed game are to go by there won't be much of that. :|

They need a dedicated team to decide what bits to cut out of the final game to sell to you later? Nice to see once again a developer/publisher working on dlc before the game is even anywhere near ready. Modern gaming sucks.

*sighs* the game itself isn't out until Halloween which is over 3 months ago.Surely this could all be on-disc.
I wish CVG would stop giving Peter Molyneux publicity

Bit stupid. It will hardly affect the game as a whole :roll:

No-one's forcing you to buy the season pass. Max Payne 3 had one, but it's single player and even multiplayer is still brilliant

Not exactly suprising, it's mandatory that it gets milked. It is AC after all.

People scare me with their lack of knowledge, as far as I know, the game hasn't gone gold. They still aren't done with THE ACTUAL GAME YET. They aren't churning out DLC right now, they are finishing the game. They haven't been too horrible about DLC, and I don't expect that to change. I WILL be buying this season pass being that i'm an AssCreed fanboy however. :D Reminder people THEY AREN'T WORKING ON DLC UNTIL THE GAME SHIPS OR HAS GONE GOLD. Stop being stupid. :mrgreen:

I wouldn't call it milked exactly, they have made improvements and added things with every new installment unlike certain a certain plague *cough cough* COD *cough cough* They also have built on the story of the assassin's, and added what I would call the most unique multiplayer on the market right now. Ubisoft is fine by me, keep making me worthwhile games and I will give them my money 8)

Revalations wasn't an improvement, it was a half arsed milk process that could have easily been DLC.

Over-saturation of the "season-pass DLC" concept is going to kill the games industry one day.
