It's a surprise this hasn't happened sooner, really. Ubisoft introduced us to the concept of a full-body history-making machine way back in 2007, but only with Assassin's Creed 3's second DLC pack has the idea of reenacting the past been carried to its logical conclusion.
Included at a discount when you buy the game's obligatory Season Pass, the Tyranny of King Washington sees Connor "he's not Ezio" Kenway facing down a megalomaniac George Washington. The associated campaign will last you three separate expansions, and is purposefully frivolous.
"We want to have a little fun with it, and have a less serious experience, a less earnest experience," lead designer Steve Masters told OXM in October, "and setting it in an alternate history environment gives us room and freedom to play around with things in a more whimsical manner."
Ubisoft has released a trailer, mostly comprising CGI shots of a gloating Georgy-Porgy. That monarchical bling's not going to save you from my tomahawk, Washington.
Are you tempted?
