The season pass only grants holders the 1st (Hidden secrets) DLC a week early. The rest of the DLC is available to everyone on the same date, whenever they release. :)

Nope, if you read it closely is says the first DLC pack.

"The Assassin’s Creed III Season Pass releases within six months after the game launch at a 25% savings over the individual pack prices. Also, Season Pass owners will have access to the first downloadable content pack one week before other gamers." http://forums.ubi.com/showthread.php/717093-Ubisoft%C2%AE-Announces-Assassin%E2%80%99s-Creed%C2%AE-III-Season-Pass

Full? Only major bug I've had is when Sam Adams disappeared in one of the cut-scenes. The rest have been minor to not even worth noting. :)

They said it's going to be twenty minutes each. I don't about you guys but it seems very, VERY short to me. Now I don't know if they meant the whole thing (cutscenes, going from one mission to the other and the missions themselves) or twenty mins if you cut out everything and leave just mission gameplay.

Hey man take it easy! I'm saying what I read (which I'm sure it was written like that). Maybe the guy writing it was an idiot and messed up the Tyranny pack with the Secrets pack. (Probably that) I just shared what I read and that's it. I'm not stating it myself, because I don't know anything about the length. Btw where did you read that it will be 5 hours?

Why is everybody complaining about bugs??? I got no bugs what so ever. The only "bug" i got was when i jumped off a mountain and landed on top of a gap between a object bush and a mountain. Since Connor can't go through object bushes, he just stood there with the look of falling, and I sat there for a minute till he slid off.

This 5 hrs of KW DLC gameplay was mentioned in various places around the forums & internet -
Pacmanate states it too way back on Page 5 of the season pass thread at the top of this forum page - Post # 45 .
But since the recent maintenance , virtually all info on gameplay time is gone from this site .
Check around the internet & virtually no comments on the subject now either , strange really , new forum terms & conditions in place now also .

But promotional info found on the internet can be saved by people - Deleting such info at a later date is pointless . :nonchalance:

Where are you seeing this information? I went to the PSN and there's absolutely nothing in there related to The Tyranny of King Washington DLC. None.

Edit: Forget it, I thought you were saying that the PSN had just created a page for the TOKW, just like they did with GTA V, didn't remember about the description on the Season Pass page.

Do we even have an official release date for the first part of the DLC? Because I see a lot of people here talking like it's confirmed that the first part of the DLC is going to be released very soon, but I've found nothing on an announcement by Ubisoft regarding the release date.

So, according to those dates, the first part is going to be released next week, but where's the publicity, where's the hype, where's the trailer? A bit strange, no?

I don't expect Ubisoft to treat this type of DLC like they treated the Lost Archive for Revelations, even though it's non-canon.

Maybe they're just playing it safe right now, seeing as how many Americans were already pissed off when Connor was shown killing colonists.
Just the announcement of this DLC already spawned some negative articles about it. I doubt they really want to promote and hype something that portrays Washington as a villain.

IF they actually feel that way, why did they even bother creating a story like this for their SP DLC? If they were so preoccupied with the American's response to this type of DLC, they should just create a different story altogether.

In most cases DLC is only for the dedicated; I'm sure most AC3 fans will appreciate it for what it is.
But if Ubi were to hype this just as much as they hyped AC3, any random patriotic American who reads the words "The Tyranny of King Washington" could take it the wrong way and that probably won't be pretty.

They might or they may all be secret achievement/trophies to not spoil any plot points for us before we play the DLC. Unless there are some activities during the DLC you have to perform, I would expect any story related achievements to be secret to not give anything away before playing.

I'm going to try and hold off on playing the DLC next week until I see the achievements listed on xbox.com. Ran into issues when I jumped the gun on the Battle Hardened achievements before they were posted and ended up having to re-download my XB gamertag and get the achievements again.

From Official pre launch leaflets encouraging customers to pre-order & BUY the season pass to get this DLC ...........

So BS & Incorrect information really is Ubisoft policy - Good to know . Just re-name the whole DLC pack as 'THE BETRAYAL' seems appropriate.

Kinda hoping it is less than 5 hours gameplay now ................Nothing would make me happier than having the cost of this season pass refunded if not as described -
months of broken glitched gamecode - Playerbase limiting Multi player DLC & Now a delay to the main DLC package - told to us through a third party member on the official forums, Rather than Ubisoft employees bothering to tell us first .

I'm pretty disappointed seeing that there is now a "new" release date for the ToKW DLC. I was all excited for 1/29, but now it is 2/19? And then the confusing wording about early access for Season Pass holders. So now season pass holders will NOT get access to the first part of ToKW on 1/29?

That question is an insult to anyone who runs a business - & to any loyal customer who helped build this franchise up to the following it currently has.
When customer support becomes fanatical following despite constant failure in product quality & false announcements - all reason is lost & replaced with blind ignorance.

Question for those of us who have never bought a season pass before:

What is cheaper? Getting the Season Pass or purchasing the 3 parts of TOKW separately?
(Note: I'm not interested in multi-player or any other DLCs apart from Tyranny since I believe I got them all of the rest as a pre-order bonus).

Pass holders only got the Hidden Secrets pack a week early. The Battle Hardened pack and the 3 part Washington DLC will be released to all at the same time. It was due to so odd word useage in the season pass promotional material that caused us to think we get all packs a week early
