Assassin's Creed III's three-part Tyranny of George Washington expansion will begin February 19. That's when the first episode--The Infamy--launches for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC, Ubisoft announced today. The content will be available as a free download for those who hold a $30 Season Pass and will be $10 otherwise.
The content can also be purchased at GameStop and Best Buy, Ubisoft said.
In the first episode, protagonist Connor is woken from a dream to find that a new king has been crowned: George Washington.
The Infamy will focus on Connor's early efforts to dethrone the malevolent king. Two additional chapters will follow at a later date.
Notably, the launch of The Tyranny of George Washington comes just one day after Presidents Day in the United States, which is a federal holiday in the US and honors George Washington.
The Tyranny of George Washington--and all other Assassin's Creed III expansion packs--will be available for the Wii U version. However, Ubisoft did not provide a release schedule.
