"It’s 1783 and the American Revolution is over, our hero, Ratonhnhaké:ton, awakens from an unsettling dream to find that despite his efforts to deliver justice in the newly-founded United States of America, a new king has been crowned – George Washington.

Blinded by a thirst for unlimited power, Ratonhnhaké:ton must dethrone the tyrant and return freedom to the land."

The Infamy will be release on Feb. 19 for 800 Microsoft Points ($9.99) on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC. Owners of the Assassin's Creed III Season Pass (2400 MSP/$29.99) will receive the content for no additional charge.
