We are very pleased to announce the Hidden Secrets Pack, the first downloadable content for Assassin's Creed III!

The Hidden Secrets Pack is NOW AVAILABLE for Season Pass owners, and will become broadly available for purchase on Windows PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 next week (and WiiU at a later date).

The Hidden Secrets DLC Pack adds three extra missions (some including our critically acclaimed naval warfare gameplay):

The Lost Mayan Ruins
The Ghost of War
A Dangerous Secret
You'll also receive:

Two single-player costumes - the Captain of the Aquila and the Colonial Assassin to round out your collection in the Homestead Manor
Two additional multiplayer characters - the Redcoat and the Sharpshooter



WARNING: While downloading DLC content, please do not load your save game – we have identified an issue that could result in loss of data if you load a saved game during the downloading process.

Oh you forgot to mention that each of the three missions (if i'm not mistaken), will unlock a bonus weapon as well:

The Lost Mayan Ruins = Saw Tooth Cutless
The Ghost of War = Pontaic War Club
A Dangerous Secret = Flintlock Musket

EDIT FOR PICS (sorry for sizes, hard to find small-ish renders)

I dowloaded the season pass this morning, and I'm playing right now but there doesn't seem to be any new missions on my map. Has the update JUST gone live, so I should restart?

Uh-huh. And how do we make it work please? All I got is a key, which the game tells me requires an installer file, and a .txt file which says 'This is your game download'...

I know this isn't the place for PC problems, but you didn't post the equivalent of this on the PC side, so...

If they were to, i'd imagine i'd be through the Abstergo Store, but having the games on separate disks might make it difficult download mission dlc for the single player. So I doubt it.



Question, since you've already announced it's coming next week to non Season pass users, what's the stand alone price of the DLC?

Well here's what I think:

the Season pass is supposed to be a 25% savings and i'm assuming the savings is via MS points. 25% of 2400 is 600 points, so I'm assuming the DLC (w/o pass) will total 3000 MS points (37.50 or 38 bucks PSN I guess totaled there too).

Now we know the different DLC packages:

Hidden Secret DLC = All Pre-Order Items
Tyrant George DLC = New Single Player Story Chapter(S)
Battle Hardened DLC = New Multiplayer Stuff

The Tyrant George is probably going to be the biggest so I suspect it being 1600 MS points
Using the facts that: 1. Revelations Multiplayer DLC for Characters was 800 pts and 2. Revelations Multiplayer DLC for maps were for 800 pts i'm going to guess that the Multiplayer DLC will cost 1000 MS Points. Then that leaves this Hidden Secret DLC at maybe about 400 points?

This is all my attempt at figuring it out. They haven't released any info yet.

ACfan443
12-04-2012, 08:33 PM
Most of the stuff was included in pre order bonus'. It's a good thing I didn't waste money on the pass, I'm gonna hand pick the DLC I want to buy.

Let me clear this up.

1. Mayan Ruins is about 8 minutes if you take it slow
2. A Dangerous Secret is about 5 minutes long.
3. Not sure about the other one.

But yeah, not an extra 1 hour as falsely advertised. I guess it would be an hour if you left your controller down for 15 minutes in between each mission

CockneyCharmer
12-04-2012, 08:48 PM
Well sadly, for owning the Join or Die Edition, the only thing this pack brought me was the Mayan Ruins, which ended up being less then ten mins of no challenge climbing

This pack only benefits those who bought the Standard edition....hoping the next content will be....more worthy Ubisoft

dorkstone
12-04-2012, 08:49 PM
I'm pretty angry that I ended up buying the other DLCs, and now would have to get the season pass in order to get the ones I didn't get plus the King Washington missions. Pretty poor planning by Ubisoft this time around as far as game polish and DLC availability is concerned. Sucks to say because AC is by far my favorite console series.

Not wanting to complain here....

But a few items in this DLC pack I had prior as i bought the limited edition version....

I feel kinda cheated as I would have gotten the extra content i received with the limited edition with this update from the season pass.... Why pay twice for the same thing, y'know?

I already had the Sharpshooter in multilayer and the Ghost of war missions.. Kinda makes getting the limited edition items redundant :|

It seems as thought people on PS3 are having trouble, but I was just able to download it on my Xbox. Follow these steps:

Start up the game and get to the main menu (Single Player, Multiplayer, Options, Extras, Uplay)
Go to Extras
Select Additional Content
In this screen it should show up with all of your additional content.
For me it showed: 1) Hidden Secrets, 2) Season Pass, 3) Uplay (i think...I'm doing this from memory)

Select Hidden Secrets and click with "A" (Xbox) or "X" (PS3) and it should bring up the option to download it.
You should be good to go from there after the download completes.
Good luck!

Like, I'm almost shocked at how much Ubisoft just threw their hands up in the air and all but proclaimed they don't give two craps about their customers with all these bugs and everything else. I can't believe that the extra content on the Deluxe edition was just something everyone was going to get with the dlc/season pass.

And yeah maybe, but they could have gave people something else?

Like i said before, If the person bought the premium pack, then also got the DLC Season pass, He/she essentially is paying twice for the same content, unknowingly.

If this was their plan, why make it a premium thing?

#1 complain to sony, not ubi for taking so long to update their store, this happens every week on the sony forum because they usually don't update the store till 6PM EST

#2 they have done this for the past 3 AC games now... offering all the pre order dlc at a later time. these missions were never meant to be exclusive, you just got access to them early for using a specific retailer. If you bought a limited edition just for an extra level or two, then you have some serious issues... you buy a LE for its packaging and collectors value, not for its bonus content, which any moron should know by now will be made available to everyone else at a later date

** POTENTIAL SPOLER?**
So I downloaded it, and instead of me continuing the game, it starts over where the game originally started? Is this where the DLC kicks off? In the bunker that you go to with the rest of the crew in the very beginning?

Also my % complete went from 85% to 45%, so I guess there is more content there.

Confusing, but I am giving it a go. this is my first AC game, so I am not sure if this is an error, or the usual suspense and mystery.

I now have 0$ !?!? It's making me do the training and Opera again! I have to make my city deliveries all over again!?!? WTF? Please someone tell me what is going on here? My game has been reset by the DLC !?!??!?!?!

And where to get it on PC?.I bought the season pass,entered the code in the extras,it unlocked season pass sucessfully,but where to get it?I checked in multiplayer I DON'T HAVE 2 additional charachters Redcoat and Sharpshooter which suppose to be part of this first Hidden secrets DLC.They should be there.

I had a mission that was included in the DLC Prior to downloading it.

it doesn't affect the missions you already did if you you already have them.

Ubisoft, are you joking with this? Pre-order bonuses as DLC with nothing of actual substance to warrant charging for it?

AC2, you put them in with Sequence 13. ACB, you put them in with the Da Vinci Disappearance. ACR, you put them in with The Lost Archive.

What am I getting here that even comes close to warranting the price you're attaching to it? This is a pretty awful way to make some extra money on content that doesn't warrant a purchase. You used to know that, as evidenced by what you released pre-order bonuses with in the previous Assassin's Creed games. Wonder when that switch flipped for you guys?

The HIDDEN SECRET is that the DLC that you paid for In Advance destroys your 100% progress in the game, sending you back to 0% Animus training.

Basically, I spent all this time and money on this great game and I am rewarded by having to play it all over - and I don't have the time to do it nor do I want to do it.

Ubi is non-responsive and all support contacts are black holes at this point. I was really enjoying this game, but this is really a crappy thing to do to your customers.

Why I feel I already played last week this hidden pack? I already went to the Mayan temple and got the sword. Is it another Mayan temple?


If you preordered in U.S. at Gamestop you already got the Mayan temple with the Sawtooth sword as a preorder bonus
It says next week for everyone else but now for us who has the seasson pass. Read again please.

all i got was the code, i bought the season pass
(PC)

pdf for the deluxe edition, completely useless
the serial was on my purchase history

redeemed said i had unlocked but needed to install it

where on earth is it

btw i have freedom edition

so im only after the costumes on this first DLC
since i got most of the content, including mp (in fact i have all the mp content from this plus the missions, only thing i dont have is the scotish flintlock and the outfits)

I want to add that the DLC itself, you know, the stuff I PAID FOR ahead of time with the season pass, is not even available to me.

So, in short: I prepaid for a Season Pass and a game that I played for 100 hours and completed 100%, then downloaded the DLC and was promptly taken back to 0% and no DLC missions or content. Nice. And ZERO contact from anyone at Ubisoft after using all of the contact methods. Non-responsive.

Thank you so much Ubisoft. Hidden Secrets, indeed.

If they were to, i'd imagine i'd be through the Abstergo Store, but having the games on separate disks might make it difficult download mission dlc for the single player. So I doubt it.

Well here's what I think:

the Season pass is supposed to be a 25% savings and i'm assuming the savings is via MS points. 25% of 2400 is 600 points, so I'm assuming the DLC (w/o pass) will total 3000 MS points (37.50 or 38 bucks PSN I guess totaled there too).

Actually, you're saving 25%, which totals to 2400 ($30) MS points. So the equation is:
[Initial price] x 75% (or .75) = 2400.

Divide:
[Initial price] = 2400/.75

You get 3200 MS points (or $40).

You really save 800 points ($10) by buying the Season Pass. :D Math! Science!

Can I have my Animus now? :3

I'm sorry that you are experiencing this but I'm sure Support will be contacting you. You may however have unfortunately experienced a weird corrupted file somehow....


For those of you that have the Season Pass already- Please remember that you still have to purchase the DLC.

360- It should be available now

Playstation- It should be available now but please remember that the PSN does not update until later on in the day. It is like this for every game.

PC- As soon as the PC version of the DLC is available we will create a post just like this in the PC Forum.


For those of you who do not have the Season Pass you will have to wait until next week. :p

Hopefully that answers some of your questions. ;)

She means you have to get it from the Extra Content section or the Xbox Live Marketplace/PSN as if you were buying it, except it doesn't cost anything.

"Purchase" might not be the best word for it, though :p.

The way that I did it was i went to the main menu then to extras. There (prior to the update) it said Season Pass and Uplay Pass. Now there should also be one that says the Hidden Secrets DLC Pack, and it should say that it's free if you downloaded the season pass correctly (you can check this by scrolling over Season Pass and seeing if it says installed). If the Hidden Secrets part hasn't shown up yet, then I'm assuming the Playstation Store hasn't updated in your region or for you yet. If it's there and you have a season pass but it's not free, or you download it and there's errors, then you'll probably have to contact Support.

My question is, does the collector's edition come with season pass? Can I download the a dangerous secret naval mission?

I don't know of this is the place where I can ask this, but I can't get into ubisoft customer support website, so here I am.

Thank you.

I'm a little bit disappointed in this DLC as I'm a buyer of the Freedom with the "exclusive" content for the singleplayer... So far 'the exclusiveness' of this content. Next to that this translates in the fact that I've paid twice for this content because I've bought the season pass (as die-hard fan)... >.<

Well i'll certainly be purchasing this DLC come Tuesday because ANY Revolutionary War Era Outfit for the Campaign is certainly welcome, and if all we could get is the Aquila Outfit for now, for me it's worth it. However, they do have "communication issues" with it's customers in not letting anything be known about what's coming out and when, and what's entailed, and if they would have let us know in advance this would be out when it was nonetheless via Seasons Pass, i would've purchased the Pass over the Skyrim DLC.

So, their lack of communication really cost them a Sale in regards to that. I really think they have to communicate with their customers much better than they are, and they could start from NOW letting us know if there will be any other Outfit options in the King George DLC in regards to the Campaign, and WHAT they are..

I noticed that mention is made to this "A Dangerous Secret" mission unlocking the alternate color scheme, however upon closer inspection of my DNA Tracker I can find no evidence of this mission but rather in its place the mission "Sinking a Secret". Not sure whether or not this is some sort of error but it's apparant that nobody can find these alleged 'new colors'.

Well i'd take a Guess , The KING GEORGE DLC will have at least 1 new pistol & 2 new normal weapons (swords) - These sections in the Manor armoury still have empty spaces in the wall racks .

The pause and map would not work so I decided to restart my console. I started the game again and went to the single player menu. My progress went down from 61% to 15% and I was super confused and scared that my data had been deleted. In fact it had. Some of it. I lost every single recruit that wasnt the first person, and now all the areas are templar controlled again and all the recruit assignments have appeared. I really dont want to do EVERY SINGLE recruit assignment again. I tried restarting again and my progress went back up to 60%, but still all my recruits are gone. I'm not sure what I am supposed to do now.

Seems common sense to me to NOT try loading anything from the same game i'm currently Downloading or installing content for -
ISN'T the HDD Already obviously accessing the Data file for that game ???

Because in effect - your console is then trying to access & load information that is currently in the process of being added to & altered /changed = In short , you confused the HDD with what it's trying to load up & what's actually saved.

But if it's standard procedure on your console - carry on.

Uh-huh. And how do we make it work please? All I got is a key, which the game tells me requires an installer file, and a .txt file which says 'This is your game download'...

I know this isn't the place for PC problems, but you didn't post the equivalent of this on the PC side, so...

Have you found anything yet?

From the in-game main menu click on 'Extras' then 'Additional Content' and it should be listed as 'Hidden Secrets' alongside your season pass.

Hey everyone,
For PC Season Pass holders- If you have gotten an error trying after trying to redeem your product key because it wants you to download a file then you will be contacted by Ubishop as quickly as possible. I would suggest going to their site if you have more questions. https://shop.ubi.com/store?Action=Di...S&SiteID=ubina (https://shop.ubi.com/store?Action=DisplayHelpPage&Env=BASE&Locale=en_US&SiteID=ubina)

For those of you that have downloaded it, the Missions are available at the Harbormaster and weapons/items will be rewarded after the Missions. Your Outfits are available in the Manor at the Homestead. ;)

Thanks

The HIDDEN SECRET is that the DLC that you paid for In Advance destroys your 100% progress in the game, sending you back to 0% Animus training.

Basically, I spent all this time and money on this great game and I am rewarded by having to play it all over - and I don't have the time to do it nor do I want to do it.

Ubi is non-responsive and all support contacts are black holes at this point. I was really enjoying this game, but this is really a crappy thing to do to your customers.

I downloaded the dlc today. Started single player, extras, hidden secret (already owned season pass). Checked my save game and had no issues.

Worth Noting - The two outfits aren't the best ( take a look online for images before purchase) & The sawtooth sword (mayan temple prize) ISN'T the best sword in the game. Washington replica is Best sword weapon.

Just don't expect anything majorly exciting .

Now that I read the new DLC resets progress, and has content that I ALREADY HAVE because I was dumb enough to pre-order this I feel CHEATED.

Please read...

After this fiasco of a game is completed, I will NOT buy another AC game. Sadly they had 2 years to work on this (when the A-team released Brotherhood) and still had remedial errors in it's initial release. Not only did this game have a day-one patch, it also had another patch released within the first month. THIS GAME SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN RELEASED UNTIL IT WAS TESTED. They rushed this out to play on the hype of 12/21/2012, which we know that nothing NATURAL will happen on this date... remember the Y2K scare???

I have 100% for the entire game (struggling through bugs and glitches) and had to d/l my profile to a friend's XBOX and play through again just so I could get the Extraordinary Man achievement because I suffer from the FARMERS glitch... that was NOT fixed with either of the 2 patches so far.

The Multiplayer XP event this weekend was also botched... boasting a 50% boost and only netting 30%. Can't you people even perform a simple calculation?? Not to mention that Ubisoft is so lazy that they would let this ride rather than coming into work on the weekend to fix this. Way to run a company... into the ground.

I remember the days of Atari & Nintendo where games came out on cartridges and were NOT fixable later. Even though games today are more complex, we should still expect the same level of competency because of the size of the workforce (20 minutes of credits).

BOTTOM LINE: Do not pre-order any additional games from Ubisoft and wait for the GOTY editions so they can have all the bugs fixed. The only way to send a clear message that this is unacceptable is to speak with your wallet. When these guys see NO revenue coming in, they will finally take notice. If you don't act, expect more of the same.

Ubisoft = Templars

It isn't on Uplay... It's in the Extras > Additional Content menu. If you own the season pass and have it installed (downloaded) you'll be able to get the Hidden Secrets pack for free from THAT menu. I had to exit the game to download it since the game makes all downloads stop.

Also for everyone else, the price of the Hidden Secrets pack is 400 ($5 USD) MSP/ $5 USD PSN Store/PC. I told you all that it was gonna be $5...

the only thing i got after purchasing the pass was the key for the first dlc, which i already typed in in-game. the game's response was 'additional content not installed, please start downlaod' or something similar.

The Hidden Secrets Pack is NOW AVAILABLE for Season Pass owners, and will become broadly available for purchase on Windows PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 next week (and WiiU at a later date).

The Hidden Secrets DLC Pack adds three extra missions (some including our critically acclaimed naval warfare gameplay):

A Dangerous Secret
You'll also receive:

Two single-player costumes - the Captain of the Aquila and the Colonial Assassin to round out your collection in the Homestead Manor
Two additional multiplayer characters - the Redcoat and the Sharpshooter


WARNING: While downloading DLC content, please do not load your save game – we have identified an issue that could result in loss of data if you load a saved game during the downloading process.

Then people in that position should realise they paid extra for that particular version of the game for the priveledge of getting this extra content included on day 1 - And they should be happy they got what they paid for.

As it's now available for the rest of the world to buy or download - They shouldn't expect anything extra to make up the difference .............Season pass gives them same perks as any other season pass holder , only their own choice to buy special editions with content early makes this Secrets pack virtually worthless to them .

So unfortunately - They got what they wanted (freedom edition + bonus content) & got what was promised too (season pass - access to upcoming DLC) .

Purchased the DLC on Xbox and although i haven't played the missions yet, i'm liking the Aquila Outfit (which is really why i bought it). It's really not like what you see in game, but it definitely is an improvement from current Outfits and more in tune with the Revolutionary War Era in my view, and you certainly "fit in" more so with it than the current options. Because of this i'll certainly be purchasing future DLC's where if there were no other Outfit options i would not have. Definitely brings this game back to life for me. Thanks guys.

Bought the Season Pass and downloaded this. I already had the Mayan Ruins mission, but it was nice completing my collection. I think out of the three missions the Mayan Ruins one was the best by far. I was disappointed that there wasn't any unique dialogue or any lore given on what the three ship missions meant, and I'm pretty sure I didn't even have to do the missions to unlock the two weapons. What I noticed on the special weapons in this game is that there doesn't seem to be any special animations for certain weapons like there were in past games.

I brought this to the attention of the Ubisoft Support team, but I personally bought this DLC just for the Captain of the Aquila costume, only to find out I get this blue pajama looking costume. I feel kind of tricked considering I purchased this as a result of false advertisement (just look at the promotional photos and the one you wear on the ship, they are virtually identical). Will there be any future plans to change it to the correct costume, or at the very least give us the option to chose between the two outfits?

Cheers.

A Few people seemed to have this data reset issue with the 'Secrets Pack' DLC - Caused by loading / playing a game while downloading the DLC.

But from what i've seen in this thread , It only seems to 'bug' out on the X360.

Just don't load or play a game while the DLC is installing (takes about 10-20 secs) & you shouldn't have any data reset/ gamesave file corruption.
