Assassin’s Creed 3 will go to retail with a Season Pass compensating for future downloadable content additions to the game. The Season Pass comes included in the “Gold Edition,” available to pre-order now in the PlayStation Store for $89.99.
The “standard” Assassin’s Creed 3 will still cost the typical $59.99, but if you plan on buying all of the planned DLC you will end up spending more than the extra $30 in difference between the standard and Gold Edition.
How much extra isn’t known, but according to Kristine Steimer of the PlayStation Store, it will be only a “slight discount.”
Assassin’s Creed 3 comes out October 30 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, and November 20 on the PC.
