This downloadable content pack will be available for Windows PC on January 15, 2012.
The Battle Hardened pack extends the Assassin’s Creed III multiplayer experience with new playable characters and maps:
• Three multi-player characters including the influential Governor, the ferocious Highlander and the fearsome Coyote Man
• Three multi-player maps including Charlestown, Fort St-Mathieu and Saint Pierre
The Battle Hardened pack is included in the Assassin’s Creed III Season Pass, which includes all five downloadable content packs to gamers owning the original game. The Season Pass provides more than 25% savings versus purchasing the DLC separately.

Future Assassin’s Creed III downloadable content will feature “The Tyranny of King Washington,” an all-new single-player campaign told through three episodic content packs that lets gamers experience an alternate history of the events following the American Revolution.
It’s 1783 and the American Revolution is over, but the true battle is just beginning. Blinded by a thirst for unlimited power, George Washington has declared himself King. Now, our new hero Ratonhnhaké:ton must dethrone the tyrant and return freedom to the land.
All Assassin’s Creed III downloadable content packs will also be available on the Wii U.
Assassin’s Creed III is now available on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and the Nintendo Wii U. For Windows PC gamers, the Assassin’s Creed III Deluxe Edition is available as a digital download and includes all future downloadable content.
