Assassin’s Creed III ‘Battle Hardened’ DLC announced

Ubisoft has confirmed it will release fresh multiplayer content for Assassin’s Creed III this week in the shape of the Battle Hardened pack.

The DLC adds three new characters and a trio of fresh maps to tuck into. In terms of characters, you’ll get the Governor, Highlander and Coyote Man, while the new maps include Saint Pierre, Fort St-Mathieu and Charlestown.

Those of you who hold a Season Pass for the historical stab-‘em-up adventure will bag the DLC for free. Everyone else will have to pay £7.99 via PlayStation Network and 800 Microsoft Points on Xbox LIVE, however.

Battle Hardened will be released on January 9 for PSN and tomorrow for XBL. Check out our review of ACIII here.
