Is it just me or does adewale sound a lot like xerxes from 300?
In other news, an Assassin's creed season pass doesn't do it for me.

DLC doesn't really hold any interest for me here unfortunately.

Should have been the main character of the game.

Having DLC missions available, not just day one, but before the game is even out yet tarnishes the game a little for me. Laves them wide open to accusations of cutting missions from the game so they can milk a few extra quid out of us...

Just because they've announced it before release doesn't mean there is anyway they could have been ready before release, and there isn't a developer in the world that doesn't plan it's DLC in advance. Besides which if these were genuinely missions cut from the main game in order to milk us wouldn't they star Edward rather than being stand alone?

They could have been the Prologue section like in AC3 where you start of playing as Edward Kenway before playing Connor?

Apart from the fact they're set fifteen years after the main story you are absolutely right. And you didn't play as Edward in AC3, you played as his son Haythem. So apart from being wrong about everything you're absolutely right :wink:

Lol, totally fluffed that up :oops: ...but you knew what I meant which is the important thing - could easily have been part of the main game as some sort of flash-forward / flash-back thing.

Don't get me wrong - I don't mind buying extra content, I just don't like the idea of paying for something that maybe should have been included in my original game purchase.
