Looks like we'll get to stab the first president of the United States

Perhaps it is time for the redemption


The second part of the DLC was released b ack in March. Dubbed The Betrayal, it is the second chapter in hero Ratonhnhaké:ton’s war against the mad King George Washington, taking gamers to Boston to find an unlikely ally. Ratonhnhaké:ton will discover a new ability – the power of the eagle, which empowers him to quickly fly across short distances and hone in on enemies for precise and brutal assassinations.

In this alternate universe, the events of Assassin’s Creed III never happened and a younger, inexperienced and thoroughly confused Connor is thrust into what is described as a “torturous, yet occasionally blissful, walking dream". As revealed earlier, Connor must end George Washington’s tyrannous reign as a monarch over America.

To combat Washington, Connor must master new abilities. These include the power of the Bear, the power of the Eagle, the power of the Wolf, Warpaint and Alpha of the Pack. The power of the Bear fills Connor with the strength and fury of a bear. The power of the Eagle delivers a burst of speed, which empowers Connor with blinding agility. The power of the Wolf lets Connor become undetectable by adopting the camouflage of a wolf. Warpaint is a symbol of power and courage, and enhances Connor's abilities. Alpha of the Pack lets Connor command a brotherhood of ruthless wolves.

Judging by the look of things, Ubisoft seems to have gone completely bonkers with the DLC. Considering that this is an alternate universe, the developers don’t seem to be scared of including things that are pretty crazy.
