Assassin's Creed 3 multiplayer DLC now available

Yes, that's the mode on disc two.

Assassin's Creed 3's multiplayer mode has been expanded in a new DLC, available today on Xbox Live Marketplace.

European PlayStation 3 players will see the content tomorrow. PC players must wait until 15 January and there's currently no release date for the Wii U version.

The Battle Hardened Pack costs 800 Microsoft Points/£7.99 and adds three new maps, plus three new character classes.

You'll get the snooty-looking Governor, brave Highlander and bold Coyote Man. New locations include Charlestown, Fort St-Mathieu and Saint Pierre.

There's a couple of new Trophies/Achievements, too.

The pack is part of the Assassin's Creed 3 Season Pass - so don't download it separately if you've already paid for that.

The Pass also includes access to the already-released Hidden Secrets Pack (all the game's pre-order bonuses), plus the upcoming three part alternate history tale The Tyranny of King Washington. Each of that campaign's three parts - The Infamy, The Betrayal and The Redemption - are due for release later this year.
