Assassin’s Creed III‘s multiplayer component will allow you to spend real-money in order to acquire some in-game items regardless of your current experience level.
“Erudito Packs” for the game were discovered in the latest PlayStation Store and Xbox Live Marketplace updates. Erudito appears to be a form of in-game currency and is available to buy in several denominations ranging from a pack of 20 for $0.99 to 925 for $19.99.
- Assassin’s Creed III UPlay Passport – ($9.99)
- Assassin’s Creed III 155 Erudito Pack – ($4.99)
- Assassin’s Creed III 20 Erudito Pack – ($0.99)
- Assassin’s Creed III 380 Erudito Pack – ($9.99)
- Assassin’s Creed III 50 Erudito Pack – ($1.99)
- Assassin’s Creed III 925 Erudito Pack – ($19.99)
The PlayStation Store update mentions that all the content available to buy with Erudito is only available from within Assassin’s Creed III and will not be downloadable from the PlayStation Store. I doubt that this content will be anything game breaking, it will most likely be experience boosts and cosmetic items, however, this is the first time that Ubisoft has attempted something like this with the series’ multiplayer component, will it pay off?
