Ubisoft is planning tons of post-release download content for Assassin’s Creed III, if a supposed note sent out by Ubisoft to GameStop stores is legitimate. The note promises to award the fine workers of GameStop with an Assassin’s Creed necklace as a thanks for all their hardwork in selling Assassin’s Creed III pre-orders. And it asks for their continued cooperation in selling a “Season Pass” shortly for the game’s post-launch DLC.
Wherever there’s a Season Pass, there’s a ton of DLC. Or else there’d be no point.
The note reads:
Hi Team GameStop!
First thing’s first – a BIG thank you for helping us ASSASSINATE our announcement pre-order goals! We couldn’t have done it without your hard work. As a token of our appreciation, inside is an exclusive necklace from the Assassin’s Creed team in recognition for all you do!
What’s next? We are currently in the process of creating a complementary development team that will begin working on post-launch episodic content to continue the Game of the Year experience that Assassin’s Creed 3 will undoubtedly deliver. With a dedicated team specifically to this content we plan to set the bar for quality DLC in our industry.
We know you’re familiar with the “Season Pass” concept and, beginning shortly, we’ll start to take pre-orders of our very own. We’d love your continued assistance in informing pre-order customers that a better value is available for thsoe who-preorder Assassin’s Creed with the “Season Pass”.
Once again, thank you for everything and we’ll be in touch soon.
– Assassin’s Creed Team
