The season pass will include all three episodes as well as multiplayer DLC that will feature new maps and characters.
Earlier, Ubisoft had talked about the DLC during the Eurogamer Expo. "We know that not everyone will buy it," Assassin's Creed 3 director Alex Hutchinson said. "So it's a 'what the f***' chunk of story that, if you missed it, the next game will still make sense."
The Assassin’s Creed series deals with a secret war that has lasted millennia between the Assassins and the Templars. The Assassins seek to fight for the free will of people, while the Templars seek to control them. The first game was set during the Holy Crusades in Jerusalem. Protagonist Altaïr ibn-La'Ahad would have to jump from rooftops and sneak into groups of people in order to find and assassinate his targets.
The second game was set during the Renaissance era in Florence. The main protagonist of the 'II' series of games - Assassin’s Creed II, Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, and Assassin’s Creed: Revelations - is Ezio Auditore. The II series of games dealt with the evolution of Ezio as a character, who starts out as a revenge-driven teenager only to become a highly-skilled master of Assassins. Altaïr also makes an appearance in Revelation, showing the aged assassin’s last few days. The secondary protagonist of the series is Desmond Miles, who is accessing his 'genetic memory' to live the lives of his Ancestors Altaïr and Ezio.
