The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...

Assassin's Creed 3 DLC Will Be Non-Canon, Ubi Doesn't Want To Splinter Audience

Posted on Tuesday, October 23 @ 08:24:19 PST by Alex_Osborn


If you've read any of my opinion-heavy work here on GR, then you're likely aware of the fact that I'm not a huge fan of downloadable content. As such, it brings me great pleasure to share with you the news that all of the DLC forAssassin's Creed 3 will not be canon.

Why is this so awesome you ask? Well for one, it means that those who don't want to shell out the cash for the extra content will still get the entire story ofAssassin's Creed 3 right out of the box. This also means that Ubisoft can go completely off the wall with alternate history without fear of screwing up the future of the franchise.

Of course, these are just my thoughts. How about I let lead designer Steve Masters—who recently had a chat with OXM—explain the reasoning behind Ubisoft's decision:
For me, the DLC has always been a touchy thing for putting important story moments into. Ultimately it fractures the audience and makes it really difficult for people to keep up with what is the canon of the series.

For us, we want to have a little fun with it and have a less serious experience, a less earnest experience, and setting it in an alternate history environment gives us room and freedom to play around with things in a more whimsical manner.
We think people are going to enjoy it, have fun with it – we’ve just got to remember it’s not part of the canon, it’s just there as something for players to enjoy.

So basicallyeverythingI just said. Glad we're on the same page, Ubi.
