If Steven Spielberg's Lincoln has tickled your interest in American history, you might be tempted to have another stab (pun totally intended) at Assassin's Creed 3.

But should you hold on a few weeks, you won't have to repeat old missions, as on February 20 Ubisoft is set to release the first episode of its three-part DLC, The Tyranny of King Washington.

This "alternate history of the revolution" sees George Washington having gone and crowned himself and you must dethrone him, probably using extreme violence. If only ol' Abe Lincoln wasn't such a Goody Two-Shoes, he might have been an AC3 villain, too.
