Assassin’s Creed III’s intriguing alternate history add-on pack The Tyranny of King Washington will receive its first instalment on 19th February in North America and 20th February in Europe, publisher Ubisoft has announced. The debut episode – dubbed ‘The Infamy’ – will depict the events directly after the conclusion of the American Revolution, as protagonist Connor endeavours to put an end to the titular tormentor’s unjust reign.

You’ll be able to download the content for free if you’ve already subscribed to Assassin's Creed III's season pass, otherwise it will set you back £9.99/$9.99. Two additional chapters in the King Washington saga are planned, which is unlikely to end with everyone shaking hands and sharing a packet of Chocolate Hobnobs.
