Assassin's Creed 3: The Tyranny of King Washington DLC - Episode 1 (PS3/X360/PC)

In Assassin's Creed III's "The Tyranny of King Washington" DLC, George Washington falls prey to the temptation of limitless power. The new single-player campaign is told through three content packs that showcase an alternate history following the American Revolution. You invoke the power of the wolf to stalk enemies and call upon wolf packs to take down your foes in order to return freedom to the country by dethroning the tyrant.

The episodes of The Tyranny of King Washington are available through the AC3 season pass (2,400 Microsoft points or $29.99 on PlayStation Network). The episodes are also available separately for 800 Microsoft points or $9.99.

Assassin's Creed III is rated "M" for "Mature" by the ESRB.

Darkstalkers Resurrection (PSN)

Darkstalkers Resurrection contains two games for the price of one, Night Warriors: Darkstalkers Revenge and Darkstalkers 3.

Night Warriors: Darkstalkers Revenge includes 14 monsters based on classic horror and folklore. The game utilizes the three-punch, three-kick system familiar to Street Fighter fans, but innovates with air blocking, air dashing and extended chain combos. Multiple Special Gauge bars can be built up to unleash ES and EX moves.

Darkstalkers 3 introduces additional characters, including Lilith and Q-Bee. The game adds a one-round system for even faster gameplay and the Dark Force system, which gives each character a special ability.

Darkstalkers Resurrection is rated "T" for "Teen" by the ESRB and is available for $14.99 on PSN.

Dead Space 3: Awakened DLC (PS3/X360/PC)

In Dead Space 3: Awakened, gamers experience the franchise's darkest chapters in a story that serves as an extension of the Dead Space 3 saga. Awakened begins when the game ends, with Isaac and Carver having been left for dead on the planet of Tau Volantis. The two must escape from the abandoned planet, repair the Terra Nova, and return to Earth — all while blood-thirsty Necromorphs continue to attack. Isaac's madness sets in, and unsure of what is real and what is a hallucination, Isaac and Carver struggle through fights and frights as they attempt to makes sense of what's happening.

Dead Space 3: Awakened is available on the PlayStation Network and for $9.99.

Dead Space 3 is rated "M" for "Mature" by the ESRB.

Forza Horizon: Pre-Order Car Pack DLC (X360)

The Pre-Order Car Pack DLC features cars that were previously only available to players who pre-ordered Forza Horizon. The DLC includes:

  • 2012 Aston Martin Virage – The Virage features a layered leather interior with the expected trimmings that keep you comfortable and relaxed, even as the speed pins your head to the back of your seat.
  • 2010 Ferrari 458 Italia – The 458 has the expected beauty and grace. The exhaust note comes through three exhaust tips that range from low-end grunt to a high-RPM wail.
  • 2011 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG – The SLS can pass most cars, and that's a shame because that means drivers can only catch a glimpse of the SLS.
  • 2010 Nissan 370Z – The Z line has a prestigious history and loyal following, and this Japanese sports car is not only powerful but beautiful as well.
  • 2010 Volkswagen Golf R – Available only in Europe, this car packs more than 260 horsepower, and it can be pushed all the way up to 155 mph.

The Pre-Order Car Pack DLC is available on Xbox Live for 400 Microsoft points ($5). It's not part of the Season Pass and must be purchased separately.

Forza Horizon is rated "T" for "Teen" by the ESRB.
