Assassin's Creed 3 DLC will be a "what the f***" chunk of story

Assassin's Creed 3's DLC will contain a wacky extra slice of narrative best described as a "what the f***" side-story, the developer has revealed.

"We know that not everyone will buy it," Assassin's Creed 3 director Alex Hutchinson told us at Eurogamer Expo. "So it's a 'what the f***' chunk of story that, if you missed it, the next game will still make sense." (Alex Hutchinson, Assassin's Creed III, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Doubtfull...sorry but with a story so complex as Assassins Creed every bit of info we've learnt about, small or big has been vital to understand the progressing story in future games.

It's basicaly...

"We don't want people getting p***y over the DLC so were going to make it look like it's not that important"

hope it's like the RDR Undead Nightmare and inFamous's Festival of Blood, some of the best "off the record" expansions I played

"And unlike some people we really don't start work on it until the game is finished. It is not on the disc"

But you cut part of the story and then released it as DLC (AC2)

I hear that's because they needed to make the release date. But I'm not sure I believe that bs.

I can say ive never bought a single piece of Assassins Creed DLC & have had no problem understanding any of the story thus far.

only got the Ezio epilogue CG movie

it made me cry
kma2k  +   1101d ago
oh yea forgot about that i did watch that, but i didnt pay for it lol :)
Jason_Tanner  +   1101d ago
Yeah, you probably shouldn't be playing video games then.
Dovahkiin  +   1101d ago
How it should be, you should never have to pay beyond retail price to experience the full story. Sadly this is not always the case.
rpd123  +   1100d ago
Same. I also watched the Ezio epilogue, but like you didn't pay for it ;). I might buy all the DLC in preparation for AC3 though.

The next game? So this basically confirms another game after III?

I'm betting it'll be the second game in a "Connor Trilogy".

i agree they did that with altair and ezio
RivetCityGhoul  +   1101d ago
they never did that with altair only ezio.
vork77  +   1101d ago
you must have never played Assassin's Creed: Altaïr's Chronicles or bloodlines

dude those aren't even in the main series those are just side stories that don't even matter. the main series is AC, ACII, AC Brotherhood, AC Revelations, & ACIII. because if those matter then the Ezio trilogy is not a trilogy if you count discovery.
vork77  +   1100d ago
if they was side storys they would have been a dlc on assassins creed but there not they are assassins creed sequels and your saying assassins creed story of Altaïr does not matter because Assassin's Creed: Altaïr's Chronicles was the prequal and blood likes take place between Assassins creed 1 and II

They said they most likely weren't going to do a trilogy with the same character again because everyone was bored with Ezio by Revelations. But I wouldn't be surprised by a follow up game with Connor to be released next year to give them time to develop AC4. They'll probably also make another buffer game before AC4, but Alex Hutchinson said whether or not it would feature Connor depends on how much people like him. This is all speculation on my part, but it makes sense.

And Yet no one flocks here to complain about dlc milking, but if it was Square, Namco, Capcom, or any other japanese company people would be quick to hate and complain.

lol oh man
3dawg  +   1101d ago
you're the first :)
kma2k  +   1101d ago
sad to say thats because what pubslishers have been pushing for this gen is starting to happen, people are EXPECTING to get screwed by DLC!
Lucretia  +   1101d ago
Yeah people expect it, but its been this way for ever already.

like when dragon age 2 launched with 50$ in day 1 dlc, no one complained, even though one of those pieces was a 25% unplayable character (golem)

yet god freaking forbid that Namco charged you for a set of angel wings in soulcalibur, dear god No!
LinLeigh  +   1100d ago
Because Ubisoft is such a loved company. They never get hated on by the internet.
Nate-Dog  +   1101d ago
Ugh just get bent Ubisoft. Why can we never get through a release of an AC game now without you talking about a succeeding title or DLC? I've been struggling to not be brought down by my negativity over the series with the disappointments of the past 2 games in particular and Ubisoft's milking of the series (and them constantly talking about new titles later on before the next one that is already scheduled for release has even hit the shelves) but well done, you have made sure that I won't be looking forward to ACIII apart from allowing me to forget about the series as hopefully Desmond's story will be finished.
