A few updates went live on the Xbox LIVE Marketplace and PSN over the weekend, revealing that Ubisoft have added in-game purchases to assist players in Assassin's Creed III who'd rather splash the cash than sink hours into the game's multiplayer.
The recently revealed US PlayStation Store and Xbox Live Marketplace updates both added incremental options for Erudito Pack DLC for the game, with the purchases only available in-game rather than through the relevant marketplace storefronts.
The item descriptions suggest that these Erudito points will give players the opportunity “to acquire some game items, disregarding your current level”, pointing towards a system for multiplayer use rather than anything (we desperately hope) to do with the singleplayer game.
The rundown for the available packs is as follows:
- 20 Erudito Pack = 80 MSP ($1 USD)
- 50 Erudito Pack = 160 MSP ($2 USD)
- 155 Erudito Pack = 400 MSP ($5 USD)
- 380 Erudito Pack = 800 MSP ($10 USD)
- 925 Erudito Pack = 1600 MSP ($20 USD)
Assassin’s Creed 3 drops tomorrow in the States, and Wednesday over here for Xbox 360 and PS3.
