The development team at Ubisoft has introduced two new packages for the upcoming Assassin’s Creed 3, which suggests that players will be able to use real-world money in order to get access to a number of items that will allow them to update their multiplayer characters.
Both the Xbox Live Marketplace and the PlayStation Store have received updates that contain something called the Erudito Pack, described as premium downloadable content for Assassin’s Creed 3.
The PS Blog, as spotted by WorthPLaying, says that the new pack is available through an in-game interface rather than through the normal PlayStation Store front.
The official description says it gives gamers the ability to “acquire some game items, disregarding your current level.”
Presumably, the objects that can be bought will only have cosmetic effects.
The announced pricing is:
- 20 Erudito Pack for 80 Microsoft Points, which is the equivalent of 1 dollars
- 50 Erudito Pack for 80 Microsoft Points, which is the equivalent of 2 dollars
- 155 Erudito Pack for 400 Microsoft Points, which is the equivalent of 5 dollars
- 380 Erudito Pack for 800 Microsoft Points, which is the equivalent of 10 dollars
- 925 Erudito Pack for 1600 Microsoft Points, which is the equivalent of 20 dollars.
Pricing has not yet been announced for the European version of the Erudito packs.
The multiplayer modes in Assassin’s Creed 3
focus on careful stalking and attacks as players hunt each other through the various maps of North America. Assassin’s Creed 3
will be launched on the PlayStation 3 from Sony and the Xbox 360 from Microsoft tomorrow in the United States and on October 31 in Europe.
PC gamers will get a version of the game in late November while those who plan to pick up a Wii U home console from Nintendo will also get the game on launch.
