After getting its first DLC pack early December, we’ve just received news that the next DLC update for Assassin’s Creed 3, the Battle Hardened pack will be arriving this week. Battle Hardened is the second of five DLC packs for Assassin’s Creed 3, with another 3 DLC packs due between now and April 30 (Ubisoft promised that all 5 planned DLC will be out within 6 months of the initial launch date of Assassin’s Creed 3 on October 30, 2012).
The Battle Hardened DLC brings 3 new characters for multiplayer (the Governor, the Highlander and the Coyote Man) along with 3 new maps for multiplayer and Wolfpack modes (Fort St-Mathieu, Charlestown and Saint Pierre). It will be available for Xbox 360 on January 8, PlayStation 3 starting January 9 and for PC beginning January 15. By itself, it’s going to cost you 800 Microsoft Points on the Xbox Live Marketplace or $9.99 from the PlayStation Store and PC. If you got the Ubisoft season pass that covers all 5 Assassin’s Creed 3 DLC packs for 2400 Microsoft Points or $29.99, the cost of that season pass covers the first update, this one and the next three DLCs that are coming.
