Ubisoft Explains Assassin's Creed III's Microtransactions

Posted by Sammy Barker


You’ll be able to pay to unlock new multiplayer gear in Assassin’s Creed III, publisher Ubisoft has confirmed. Eagle eyed gamers spotted the inclusion of Erudito Credits in the most recent PlayStation Store update, prompting some speculation over what the mysterious currency entailed.

“The Erudito Credits are a new way of unlocking content in Assassin’s Creed III’s multiplayer,” the company told “People who have little time can use Erudito Credits as a shortcut to unlock game items from level 1 to 50 (excluding Prestige levels and relics rewards).

“This is not mandatory, all items sold in Erudito Credits are also available in Abstergo Credits and can be unlocked through normal progression like previous years.”

We suppose this isn’t a big deal – especially if it allows time-strapped players to enjoy the multiplayer experience more – but it would have been nice if Ubisoft was more upfront about the inclusion. Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.

I dont really care about the MP in AC3 or any other AC. Its more like a bonus to play ith friends than something that I will dedicate!

@Savino I really like the multiplayer in Assassin's Creed. In fact, it's one of my favourite multiplayer modes. I'm really eager to see all the new stuff in the latest game.

Brotherhood's multiplayer was fun for awhile, then I realized how hard it can be.
