The first of the three Assassin's Creed III downloadable content (DLC) additions to the video game have been announced, with the story-based expansion redefining American history.

Entitled the Tyranny of King Washington, the DLC changes the course of the American Revolution by having George Washington proclaim himself king in 1783, requiring the protagonist Connor Kenway to assassinate him.

"History is our playground, and Assassin’s Creed teams have always loved playing with historical facts and their consequences as a way to better understand a time period," said the video game's executive producer Sebastien Puel.

"While Assassin’s Creed III concentrates on history as it happens, we wanted to take some liberties with this DLC and tell you how things ‘could have happened'."

Therefore, if you had always dreamed about the possibility of slicing George Washington's jugular, rather than giving him a high five, the Tyranny of King Washington could be well worth a download.

Publisher and developer of the title, Ubisoft, made the announcement as part of the unveiling of the Assassin's Creed III Season Pass, which gives players access to all five of the title's forthcoming DLCs.

The Tyranny of King Washington will play out over three of these DLCs. Rather than becoming one of the lauded Founding Fathers of the United States and drafting the Constitution, hero of the American Revolution George Washington instead succumbs to the draw of supreme power. It then becomes the player's task to return freedom to the US.

All of the DLCs will be released within six months of the game coming out and the Season Pass will be available from November 22nd for PC players at a price of £23.99.

The much anticipated Assassin's Creed III comes out on November 23rd on PC, putting players in the shoes of a half-English, half-Native American protagonist.ADNFCR-1220-ID-801465016-ADNFCR
