According to Kotaku, Ubisoft have sent a memo around to Gamestop stores to congratulate them for their large amounts of preorders for their forthcoming Assassin’s Creed III. In the memo, pictured below, it is indicated that there will be a dedicated team working on “post-launch episodic content” and customers who preorder the game with the “Season Pass” option will get significant value benefits compared to normal purchasers of the game.
For those who remember the Assassin’s Creed II DLC, it was used to mainly fill out the content that the developers didn’t have time to include in the main game. It sounds as though the DLC has been more carefully thought out for the third numbered installment, potentially with a greater focus on single-player content, rather than just the predictable multiplayer add-ons.

Do you think it’s a good thing that Ubisoft are planning the content before the game has been released and are using this as an incentive to sell the Season Pass? Or do you think that the DLC should be announced after the game has been released, so that gamers can enjoy the full game before they think about spending more money on it?
